Hlompho Kekana keeps showing that his class is permanent. A trademark finish from the legendary skipper.
Sandilands continues to struggle against Kekana.

They have over-the-hill players at the core of their team. A coach who only knows one way, regardless of the players at his disposal.
Unless something drastic happens in the offseason Sundowns are already having one hand on next season's PSL trophy.
