The Rhinos have been the most prolific team on show in this year’s club tournament, scoring 50 or more points in each of their three matches.

The side from Limpopo scored nine tries in the 53-14 win against Progress from Eastern Province last Saturday. They will travel to Kings Park this Saturday to pit their skills another attack-minded outfit in Heineken College Rovers, who beat Raiders from the Lions by 60-17 in Johannesburg this past weekend.
