The SA Rugby Women’s Interprovincial Competition is set to gain momentum on Saturday as the A-Division teams battle it out in round two following a high-scoring opening round a fortnight ago.

KwaZulu-Natal will host Western Province at Growthpoint Kings Park in Durban while defending champions Border will take on the Blue Bulls at the BCM Stadium in East London, and Free State and Eastern Province will go head-to-head at the Clive Solomons Stadium in Bloemfontein.

KwaZulu-Natal and Western Province come off strong starts to the competition in which they registered 40-point scores in their opening matches, and they will both be determined to build on that this weekend.

The last two outings between these coastal sides were close, with the Capetonians winning 12-11 on their home patch last season, while the KwaZulu-Natalians registered an 18-14 victory in their last match at home, and Saturday’s clash could prove to be another gripping encounter.

Border, meanwhile, will look to pick up on a rewarding start to the season in which they secured a 52-3 victory when they take on the Blue Bulls. But the Pretoria side, who met Border in 2015 final, will have their sights set on earning their first win of the season after going down against Western Province at home in a disappointing start to the season. The Blue Bulls, however, will be under no illusions about the challenge ahead as the hosts have a good winning track record against them.

The clash between Free State and Eastern Province is also expected to deliver its fair share of action as both teams come off defeats and will want to turn things around early in the season. The teams scored a combined total of only eight points in their opening matches and conceded 95, and they will be determined to deliver much more effective performance on attack and defense this time around.

SA Rugby Women’s Interprovincial round two fixtures (Saturday, 22 July):

15h00 – KwaZulu-Natal v Western Province (Growthpoint Kings Park B Field)

15h00 – Border v Blue Bulls (BCM Stadium, East London)
