With six matches to go, Union Stars (53 points after 12 matches), has basically secured a top position at the conclusion of the pool stages of the premier league competition and will directly advance to the final.
A tough battle is expected to qualify for the play-off rounds for positions two and three where George (35 points after 10 games) and Mossel Bay (35 points after 11 games) are currently sharing the 2nd position. For that reason the matches between George and Pacaltsdorp and the one between Ramblers and Mossel Bay will be of critical importance.
