Springrose, Progress maintain unbeaten streaks in EC Super 12 Rugby Competition
Springrose again maintained their unbeaten streak in this year’s Eastern Cape Super 12 Tournament last weekend, after thumping Cambridge 51-10 in New Brighton, Port Elizabeth on Saturday.
After winning four out of four matches so far this season, Springrose are adjoined by Uitenhage’s Progress as the tournament’s only current unbeaten sides. Progress had a bye this last weekend, but won their fourth consecutive game the week before against EL Police 18-12 in Uitenhage.
In a trans-metropolitan clash, fellow Uitenhage club rivals, Gardens, beat Parks at Londt Park 24-10; while Port Elizabeth’s Harlequins travelled to East London and suffered a narrow 26-19 slump to EL Police.
With merely just one round-robin stage left in the group stages, the unbeaten Springrose and Progress top Groups A and B with 18 and 17 points respectively, with Gardens placed as Group A runners-up on 16 points, just a single point above Mdantsane’s Swallows.
In Group B, EL Police are currently placed second on 15 points, with Walter Sisulu University sitting at third with a handful five points behind the East London club. Taking note, however, that EL Police has concluded all five of their group matches, while WSU have a game in hand.
Racking up a bonus-point win next weekend can equalize second place between the two clubs, which will invariably measure down to points’ difference.
