NMMU, who did the league double last year, showed they should again be a force to be reckoned with by cruising through their opening men's Super League squash match in the first round last week.
The varsity side, led by one of Border's top players, Jason le Roux, who is studying at NMMU, coasted past an outgunned Swifts side 19-3. They will be pleased with the return of Jarryd Terblanche after a lengthy illness. Terblanche started well with a notable 3-1 win over the talented Durandt Martin.
There will be no easy pickings for NMMU, though, as Londt Park and Profiles both picked up 19 points, while Westview are not far behind with 16 points. These four teams have clearly marked themselves as the top contenders and the competition is now sure to be fierce.
There was a good win for young Old Grey player Thando Ncamane, who is relatively inexperienced at this level but registered a 3-0 win over the hard-running Rian Raubenheimer.
Ncamane has come through the development ranks, with Old Grey playing a major role in his progress.
The teams have been divided into the two pools of four, with the top two in each group qualifying for the top four playoffs. Londt Park and Profiles must be tipped to move through from Pool B, and Westview and NMMU look like the top sides in Pool A.
The league continues today with the action taking place at Swifts in Uitenhage. The fixtures are: NMMU v Westview, Swifts v Old Grey, Londt Park v Saders, Rhodes v Profiles.
