Cape Town - The Sunfoil Series title prospects of the Warriors, the Dolphins, the Titans and the Knights all suffered a blow on Friday after they failed to take to the field for a second successive day because of rain in Durban and Centurion.

At Kingsmead, persistent showers all morning meant there was little chance of play for the top-of-the-table visitors and the hosts in fifth.

Although the Warriors did lead the standings heading into the round, they will need to get some action in after their closest rivals, the Cape Cobras, began their game against the Highveld Lions in Potchefstroom on Friday.

All three final round games saw the opening day washed out by heavy rain across the country on Thursday.

Meanwhile at SuperSport Park, there was a chance of the Titans-Knights tie getting going early on day two when the rain abated. But the start was then held up by a wet outfield, before the skies opened later on forcing play to be abandoned once more.

The Warriors (128,04) lead the way from the Cobras (127,02), the Knights (124,32) and the Titans (121,58), while the Dolphins (114,44) also have a mathematical chance of winning the four-day crown.
