THE round-robin stages of the U21 Provincial Championship looks set for a grand finale this weekend as the venue of the second semi-final and the fourth semi-finalist have yet to be determined.

Western Province, with 10 victories in 11 matches, have booked the top spot on the log for their home semi-final, but either the Sharks or the Blue Bulls will host the other semi-final.

In the weekend’s matches WP thumped the Golden Lions 39-5 in Cape Town, Free State beat the Leopards 38-29 in Potchefstroom and the Sharks defeated the Blue Bulls 35-29 in Pretoria.

In Pretoria, the Sharks recovered from a two-point deficit at half time against the Blue Bulls to register their eighth victory of the season and hop into second place on the log standings.


Bulls 29 (15) – Tries: Burger Odendaal, Jacques Rossouw, Nardus van der Walt, Shaun Adendorff. Conversions: Tony Jantjies (3). Penalty: Jantjies.

Sharks 35 (13) – Tries: Allan Dell, Andre Esterhuizen, Garath Meikle, Robert du Preez. Conversion: Duncan Campbell (2), Robert du Preez.
