Two-time Sanlam Boland Top 12 champions Saldanha travel to Robertson while newcomers Safcol host Wesbank in Grabouw as all twelve teams get ready to kick off in Round One of the 2023 Sanlam Boland Top 12

The Boland Rugby Union on 16 October announced five new sponsors ahead of the 2023 Sanlam Boland Top 12 competition. Sanlam, Vumatel, Tekkie Town, Santam, and Umbro have all been unveiled as key sponsors with Sanlam headlining the prestigious club competition.

The 2023 Sanlam Boland Top 12 fixtures were determined through a live draw streamed from the Boland Rugby Stadium in Wellington with chairpersons and captains of the Sanlam Boland Top 12 teams present.

The Boland Top 12 Competition, a pinnacle of rugby excellence in the region, would not be possible without the generous support of its sponsors. The final will be played on 02 December at the home of Boland Rugby at the Boland Rugby Stadium in Wellington.

Round One of this year’s competition gets underway on 21 October with Vanrhynsdorp Eagles hosting Roses United from Wellington, and debutants Mamre welcome Young Hamiltons from Worcester. Swartland champions Darling and 2017 Sanlam Boland Top 12 champions, Hawston face off in Darling while last year’s runners-up Bella Vista from Ceres play host to Clanwilliam’s Delicious. Safcol and Wesbank will battle things out in Grabouw and rounding up the opening round fixtures will be defending champions, Saldanha travelling to 2017 finalists, Robertson Town.

The second round of matches includes a repeat of the 2017 final when Roses United welcomes Robertson Town in Wellington while Safcol makes the long trip to Vanrhynsdorp where they battle things out with Eagles.

Dedicated fans and loyal supporters of this competition can look forward to highly anticipated matchups with some big talent in action every week.
