The Wits internal rugby league put on an exhilarating show last night with four tightly contested games on the east campus rugby fields.

All four games ended the first half with scores tied, an indication of how evenly matched the teams were.

The Steinhoff Medics won 34-32 against the Steinhoff Engineers in the highest scoring game of the night. The Medics ended the game with a spectacular try from within their own half.

The Midrand Graduate Institute (MGI) managed to score 26 points on their way to victory against Mens Res who only scored 18.

Humanities (Titans) lost to Masakhane who ended the game 8 points ahead after a difficult match. The game ended 16-8 late in the second half.

The final game of the night saw Steinhoff Commerce beating Monash in the final play with a try to win 16-14.

Monash lost their match despite scoring three tries that had the crowd begging for more.

The team currently leading the Wits internal rugby is Steinhoff Masakhane which has only lost one game out of a total of four games played.

Steinhoff Humanities is currently placed last and after the game it lost against Masakhane last night, and it seems like it will remain at the bottom of the league for this week as well.

There are still eight more weeks left before the final in July.
