Nine log points separating the top six teams
There will be all to play for in Camps Bay on Sunday, with spots in the knock-out stages up for grabs in the Varsity Sevens tournament.
The extremely windy conditions in Camps Bay have forced the final round of the league phase of the competition to be postponed to Sunday morning, which means that there will be a lot riding on the early matches before the knock-out phases.
There are just nine log points separating the top six teams, and with the final round of fixtures before the play-offs set to be played on Sunday morning it is set up for a thrilling climax.
Defending champions Maties avoided defeat on Saturday, with victories over UCT, UJ, Tuks and UWC sending them to pole position.
Having gone unbeaten to top the standings on Friday, Tuks suffered two defeats on Saturday at the hands of Cape sides UWC and Maties to throw the competition wide open.
UWC made a big move with victories over Tuks, NWU-Pukke and Limpopo putting them in fifth place and firmly in the mix for a spot in the Cup competition when action resumes on Sunday.
Kovsies and UJ finished strong on Saturday to move into third and fourth position respectively, whilst Pukke are also in with a shout in sixth place which sets up what should be a nail-biting finish on Sunday.
The final round of Sevens action kicks off at 11.20 on Sunday before the competition is split into the Cup and Plate, with the knock-out stage of the tournament starting at 14.00.
