Voortrekker en Henties in groot stryd vandag

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.
