In Bethlehem sal twee van die vroeë gunstelinge om die Griffons se skolekroon, Voortrekker en Hentie Cilliers van Virginia, mekaar die stryd aansê. Henties is die kampioen, terwyl net die Trekkers se spelers van 2012 sal weet hoekom hulle nie dié eindstryd gehaal het nie. 

Die Trekkers se Cravenweek-heelagter, Sechaba Matsoele sal weer die laaste vesting beman na hy verlede week se wedstryd teen Goudveld misgeloop het. AJ van Wyk, seun van die legendariese Oos-Vrystaatse losskakel Japie...
