Logjam at UKZN

The 2014 Steinhoff UKZN Campus League has been characterised by some enthralling rugby and great support from the student base with derby matches often attracting cheerleaders, local DJs and large crowds, including celebrity spectators such as SARU president, Oregan Hoskins, himself a UKZN alumnus.

In the Pete Booysen pool it is now a two horse race between the digs team, Steinhoff Purple Haze and the William O'Brien Hall-based Steinhoff AmaSosha.

The 2012 champions, the Steinhoff Varsity Drifters and last year's winners the Steinhoff Agric Stags have already dropped valuable log points and look to be out of contention.

Steinhoff Denison Residence and Steinhoff Cedara have played some entertaining matches, but they too are unlikely to progress, with the Haze and AmaShosha now tied at the top of the log, and due to face each other on Friday night.

In the Howard College Pool, the College of Humanities thrashed the uncharacteristically weak Steinhoff Engineers 71-5 in the opening round and looked to be the top contenders, before suffering a last minute 21-15 loss to Steinhoff Housing.

Humanities did redeem themselves later on against Steinhoff Westville, who had previously recorded an impressive 16-10 win over the Housing students.

In last week's round the vastly improved Engineers were level pegging with Housing with just a few minutes remaining, but the Housing students managed to score in the last minute to secure a vital win which elevates them to tied first on the log, alongside Westville and the College of Humanites.

There is now all to play for in both groups as the final round pool games approach.
