In a bit of a surprise move the wise men decided that the final of the u/16 Grant Khomo Week must be played by the unbeaten Western Province and the Sharks team who drew with SWD 20-20. The Sharks may rightfully claim that they did throw the game away against SWD but personally I think the Lions would have been a more "fair" and able opponents to the mighty Western Province.

The Golden Lions won 31-17 against Leopards on Monday which they followed up with a convincing 29-17 win against the EP Elephants will play against SWD who could not win a game but neither lost any games during the week. SWD drew 36-36 against the Cheetahs on Monday and again drew 20-20 against the Sharks on Wednesday and need to beat the Lions in order to justify the wise men's decitions regarding the final day's fixtures.
