DHL Western Province and Blue Bulls Women’s rugby teams remain unbeaten as round four of the SA Rugby Women’s Premier Division took centre stage this past weekend.
Western Province showed their strength and determination to prove why they are top the log, as they defeated Mastercard Golden Lions Women in their encounter at Wits University on Saturday, 14 May 2022.

Babalwa Latsha, Nopinky Mazwi and Sinazo Mcatshulwa dominated the afternoon to seal a 55-10 victory.
The Blue Bulls played host to the Cell C Sharks at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria. The visitors showed shark mentality but it was the fighting spirit of the Bulls that saw the home side come from behind to claim their second home victory and third consecutive victory of the tournament with their final score of 21-13.
The final match of the weekend saw Border Ladies take on Boland Dames at the Sisa Dukashe Stadium in Mdantsane in the Eastern Cape.
