The Tafel Lager Griquas will need to topple one more big gun when they play DHL Western Province in the final of the SuperSport Challenge at Florida Park in Cape Town on Sunday.
WP v Griquas – click here to bet
Griquas topped the Central Conference ahead of the Sharks and the Cheetahs and in their 8 matches they were only beaten once and also played to a draw. In the quarters they took on the EP Kings and they had few problems in seeing them off 73-41 and then last week they turned it on to beat the Lions 33-21 after building a healthy lead in the 1st half.
Province have a perfect record this season having won all 8 matches to top the South Conference. They then faced the Cheetahs in the last 8 and showed great defensive attributes in shutting their opponents out to win 26-0 but they were given a serious run for their money when they beat the Bulls 28-24 in the semi-finals last week.
WP -3.5 at 5/6
Griquas +3.5 at 5/6
Suggested bet: WP -3.5 at 5/6
The Griquas should not be underestimated but I was expecting this handicap to be closer to 7 points especially with WP playing at home.
