No sure wins in the Championship Playoffs quarterfinals

Do not place any bets, there are no sure wins and the 2024 Nile Special Rugby (Men’s) Championship is far from over!

When the teams now in the playoffs quarterfinals met during the regular season, losing bonus points were picked in their respective matches. They were close matches; so nailbiting and competitive that, in all of them, the lead changed hands repeatedly. Some, as in the case of Heathens and Walukuba, inside the last five minutes.

These are the results from those meetings during the regular season and when they occured:

Round 6: Walukuba 17-21 Heathens

Round 7: Hippos 20-16 Buffaloes

Round 9: Mongers 16-21 KOBs

Round 9: Rhinos 11-17 Pirates

It is crucial to look at the before and after of these meetings because it will go a long way in understanding how the teams rebuild after a close defeat or surge after tough victories.

Because while it was just one leg in the regular season, there will be two legs – home and away – in the playoffs. The championship was already tough enough and now, the margins are even tighter.

Which teams will have the capacity and resources to battle for eighty minutes on one weekend and then be back at it again on the very next one?

That’s where the championship will be won and lost.
