The Leopards and Falcons will contest the Northern Amateur Provincial Championship final on Friday at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane following vital victories in their round-two matches on Wednesday.

The annual tournament features eight teams, the Leopards, Falcons, Blue Bulls, Lions, Blue Bulls XV, Pumas, Pumas Lowveld and the Limpopo Blue Bulls.

The Leopards were in fine form on the opening day on Monday as they registered a convincing 57-13 victory against the Pumas, while the Falcons got off to a slow start with a 24-24 draw against the Blue Bulls XV. In the other matches defending champions the Blue Bulls thumped Pumas Lowveld 61-5 and the Lions defeated the Limpopo Blue Bulls 24-17.

The Leopards continued their solid form on Wednesday with a 30-21 victory against the Blue Bulls to increase their points scored to an impressive 87, while the Falcons registered a narrow 25-22 victory against the Lions to book their places in the final.

The Blue Bulls XV, meanwhile, thrashed the Limpopo Blue Bulls 43-13, while the Pumas Lowveld beat their neighbours, the Pumas, 17-11 in their second match.
