EC Super 14 enters second week of action

The Eastern Cape Super 14 season began last week, despite some hiccups in some areas. It is understood that there was a delay in the start of some games due to the similarity of the jerseys used, but the games went ahead with the exception of the most anticipated game between Progress and East Rand United. The game was called off for unknown reasons.

The Eastern Cape provincial government contributed millions of rands to this tournament. The Mpondos are still ecstatic after the Ntlaza Lions defeated the Young Leopards 23-9 in a nail-biter.

Other Group B games saw Kirkwood defeat Geore Crusaders 29-23, Jeffreys Bay defeat Swallows 35-33, and East London Police defeat PE Harlequins in East London. Gardens defeated Ncerha Leopards 30-28, Kruisfontein defeated Moonlight 29-3, and Park defeated Old Selbornians.

Also, this weekend, at 3pm at the Ntlaza Stadium, the Mpondos will enjoy a high-quality match between their rugby team, the Ntlaza Lions, and the George Crusaders. Ntlaza Lions will fight to win again after defeating Leopards in the first match to send a message to all the teams that will visit Mpondoland this season.

Jeffreys Bay won their second game against the struggling Young Leopards. PE Harlequins take on Kirkwood, who are looking for their first win of the season. The match between the Swallows and the Police will set off fireworks in East London. Moonlight welcomes Park to Mooiplaas Stadium. In Baysville, Old Selbornians will face East Rand, while Gardens will face Kruisfontein at Derick Stadium. On Saturday, all games will begin at 3pm.
