Junior Sharks to take on Lions at Woodburn Stadium

2014-07-31 00:00

THE Sharks U19 and U21 teams will be playing against the Golden Lions in Currie Cup matches at Woodburn Stadium tomorrow afternoon.

The Sharks versus Golden Lions U19 match will kick off at 3.15 pm with the Sharks and Lions U21s taking the field at 5 pm. Tickets at the gate are R10 for children and R30 for adults and the entrance for parking is on Woodhouse Road.

A spokesperson for the Sharks said the teams will be announced today.

The Woodburn matches will certainly present the Sharks juniors with an opportunity to get back on track following their respective defeats to the powerful, unbeaten Western Province teams last time out. The Sharks U19s were downed 30-15 by the WP U19s after trailing 13-8 at half-time, while the Sharks U21 team were soundly beaten 47-15.

Meanwhile, Durban Collegians clinched the 2014 Fidelity Security Premier Division’s Moor Cup trophy following a 66-21 defeat of UKZN Impi.

Defending champs College Rovers edged out Varsity College 24-23 but the Durban Collegians lads have a six-point lead in the log, which makes the outcome of the Durban Collegians/Rovers match in the final round on Saturday of no bearing on the outcome of the trophy.

It was so close yet so far once again in the Premier Division for Maritzburg Collegians, who were shaded 18-11 by Amanzimtoti, while Crusaders defeated Zululand Rhinos 31-17. PMB Collegians firsts will be looking to end their impressive league campaign with a flourish when they take on the Rhinos at 3.30 pm at Woodburn Stadium on Saturday.

In KZN First Division fare at 2 pm at Woodburn Stadium on Saturday, it will be South Section winners South Coast Warriors up against North Section winners Newcastle Highlanders for the Dewar Shield title.

Saturday’s other matches in the final round of Premier Division action see Varsity College hosting UKZN Impi and Crusaders entertaining Amanzimtoti.

Next week, the teams will turn their attention to the Castle Murray Cup knockout competition, the quarter-finals of which take place next Saturday, August 9. Durban Collegians will visit Harlequins, Rovers are to meet Jaguars, Amanzimtoti take the trek north to Vryheid, Varsity College will be off to Newcastle, PMB Collegians are away to Hillcrest, Crusaders go to South Coast Warriors, Zululand Rhinos are to tackle Richards Bay, and UKZN Impi go to Northern KZN for a date with Piet Retief.
