In the Currie Cup Week Two we saw a clear indication of who the top four teams will be.

Let’s take a look at how the last two weeks results have started to shuffle the teams.


Boland Cavaliers

The Cavaliers earned their right to play in the Premier Division via the long route. They  won their place by virtue of their performances in the qualification tournament. In week one, they were soundly beaten (16-44) at home by the Cheetahs. They followed this up with a fairly easy win (28-10) against the hastily thrown-together EP Kings team.

The Cavaliers will always add a dash of panache to any competition they take part in and 2016 will be no different. It is hard to see them winning more than a few games though.

EP Kings

The Kings are taking part in the Premier Division by virtue of their association with a Super Rugby Team. They missed round one of the completion as they did not have a team to field after the Union’s liquidation had been ordered. Their game against the Griquas will be caught up this coming weekend. The first game they took part in was the 28-10 loss to the Cavaliers. The game was very scrappy. For a team that had been thrown together a few days before their first match, the Kings did show that there is something to work with. They will probably only manage a single win though.
