The Harmony Sportacademy is strengthened by their senior provincial fullback Cecil Afrika for their Kovsie-competition final of the Shimla-league against Diamantveld. The match will kick off at 12:20 at Shimlapark in Bloemfontein.
Diamantveld won the previous encounter earlier this year by 17-14. But they will have to work hard to defeat Harmony Sportacademy once again. A victory in the final will put a cap on a very successful season for the guys of the Northern Cape.
Both teams are coached by former provincial players. Harmony Sportacademy’s Jacques Juries played for South Western Districts on the wing, while Abre Minnie played for Griquas in 1992.
