VirSeker Cup – The Final Winner And Loser Is Going To Be …………… ?

After the completion of Round 6 of the VirSeker Cup competition, the log did change with the fight at the top to decide who will be the winner of the Cup is as fierce as in the competition who will be relegated after the final sums were made.

Some clarity was given on the method that is used to calculate the log points and Ruggas.co.za had it almost correct in our last report. You earn one log point if your 1stXV, 2ndXV, 3rdXV, u/16 A&B, u/15A&B and u/14A&B report to play on the day of the matches BUT only the 1stXV and A teams will earn their school another point if they win.

Monnas, Middelburg HTS, Helpmekaar and Noordheuwl all earned 12 log points, Menlopark, Transvalia and Garsfontein earned 10 points while EG Jansen earned 9 points during last weekend's matches.

At the top, Helpmekaar is still leading with 89 points while Monnas and Menlopark are tied in the second position with 80 points, however, one must take into account that Helpmekaar played in 7 fixtures while Monnas en Menlopark only played in 6. At the bottom, it is still a race between Transvalia, Waterkloof, EG Jansen and Noordheuwel with 4 points separating the last four schools. However, if we use the average points earned by these four schools Transvalia should end 2 points behind Waterkloof and at this stage will be relegated.
