Orlando Pirates thumped Eleven Brothers, while in another cup game Leopards just edged Sundowns to be crowned champions.

Well, before you go wondering what the hell one is writing about or whether one needed one's head examined, there is an explanation for the paragraph above.

The MTL Cup in Namibia was in its quarterfinals stage last weekend and that's where the neighbouring country's version of the Sea Robbers accounted for Eleven Brothers with a 4-2 victory.

Royal Leopards lifted the SwaziBank Cup with a narrow 1-0 win over Manzini Sundowns in the final played over the weekend. The two games form part of the African Soccer Television show that will be broadcast on SABC Sport's Laduma programme on Sunday at 5.30pm.
