THE 2018 Honiara Rugby Union Association (HRUA) 15s tournament is expected to complete all round robin matches by next week.
The association said after the completion of all round robin matches the competition will head for the top four team battles.
HRUA said the top four battles will probably kick off on the second week of October but should things stay the way they are, competition leaders Henderson Hammerhead Sharks will be crowned the new champions.
“This week end should complete all round robin games with few catch up matches over on week days so probably it will take a week or two,” HRUA said.
“If Henderson Hammerheads win their last game this weekend then yes they will lead the competition and we will award them the top prize for the league.
“Prizes will be awarded for the league top four standing and as well as for the top four play-offs,” the statement said.
Format for the top four playoffs will see the first positioned team taking on the fourth placed team while the second placed team takes on the third placed team.
Meanwhile HRUA President Mr Derek Pongi says all remaining HRUA matches including tomorrow’s round robin matches will be played at the Town Ground rugby Stadium.
Matches for this Saturday will see HHH taking on MOI at 12pm followed by Avaiki and Realas at 2pm and then TIA Warriors taking on Diesel Services at 4pm.
