Round 4 wrap:
The Lions came out in this round and got 2 wins that do not mean much to them as far as the playoff are concerned but the Titans and Dolphins who lost to them felt it greatly as these losses mean the end of their hopes to still make it to the playoffs. These two teams started the round with yet another no result caused by the rain and then went on to lose the rest of their games with the win by the Knights over the Dolphins on Sunday basicly seeing them through to the playoffs and shutting out any chance the Dolphins and Titans had to still qualify.
In the mean time while the fight for that 3rd spot was on the go, the Cobras won their all important game against the Warriors to end up on top of the log at the end of round 4.
Lets take a look at what’s left to do:
Firstly the log as it stands now:
1 Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras. 28
2 Chevrolet Warriors. 25
3 Chevrolet Knights. 23
4 Sunfoil Dolphins. 16
5 bizhub Highveld Lions. 13
6 Nashua Titans. 11
And the last rounds fixtures:
30 Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras v Sunfoil Dolphins Sahara Park Newlands, Cape Town 15:00
30 bizhub Highveld Lions v Chevrolet Knights Bidvest Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg 15:00
30 Nashua Titans v Chevrolet Warriors SuperSport Park, Centurion 15:00
Only the order of the 3 top teams can alter after these games will be played, a win for each top 3 teams will leave the log looking the same as now. A loss by the Cobras and win by the Warriors could still see the Warriors advanced to the top of the log. And a loss by the Warriors and a win by the Knights could see the Knights end up 2nd on the log. The top team advance straight to the final while the 2nd team hosts the 3rd placed team in a semi final.
With the few remaining games to be played a change or two can still happen on our Superbru log but here’s the top 5 as it stand after the 4 completed rounds:
5 BLOU BLOU BUL
