Host province KwaZulu-Natal's hopes of being represented in the finals of the SAB Regional League national playoffs in Newcastle were dented when Brazil were beaten yesterday.

The KwaZulu-Natal side suffered an unexpected 1-3 loss to tournament favourites Kuils River of Western Cape yesterday. They had beaten Real Madrid from Northern Cape 4-2 in their first match.

Brazil would have to rely on the other teams to do the job for them against Kuils River, who seemed unstoppable.

Other results: Juventus African (EC) 3, Real Madrid 1; Simply Yellow (Limp) 3, Witbank Manchester (Mpu) 1; Abakah (Gau) 4, Raiders (NW) 0.

Tomorrow's fixtures : Manchester Utd (FS) v Witbank Manchester (9am); Raiders v Simply Yellow (11am); Witbank Manchester v Abakah (2pm); Simply Yellow v Manchester Utd (4pm).
