Having raced out of the blocks against the Seychelles with a 6-0 drubbing of the Islanders at a rather empty FNB Stadium, Bafana Bafana were brought back down to earth in the return fixture, with a tame goalless draw, away from home, which once again has put their potential qualification to the 2019 AFCON in peril. The players return to the respective clubs this weekend to take part in the Telkom Knockout.

In the blink of an eye, we have reached the semi-final stage of the shortened Currie Cup. DHL Western Province hold all the aces heading into this weekend, with a home semi-final against the Vodacom Blue Bulls this Saturday. In torrential conditions at Loftus Versfeld, the team from Cape Town put on a clinical display in the first half of last weekend's round robin match, and put their northern foes to the sword, victory ensured the top spot on the log. In the other semi-final, last year's finalists, the Cell C Sharks host the Xerox Golden Lions. Other rugby highlights include the Division 1 Final between the SWD Eagles and Valke, while in Middelburg, the Griffons take on the Pumas in the SA Rugby U/20 Championship.

Other events to be on the lookout for in the coming week include motor racing with Sasol GTC from Zwatkops Raceway, boxing from Emperors Palace, Davis Cup tennis from Portugal and finally 4 Day Series cricket.

Lastly, with the squads fully assembled, Gallo Images will be on hand to capture all the build-up to the much anticipated Mzansi Super League. The action starts in November, but there will be plenty of time before that, as teammates acquaint themselves with each other as well as getting used to some unfamiliar surroundings.
