Wonder what criteria used here real.... If it were base on teams performance during that certain performance to each specific season I would understand.... My point Mpanzish haven't won anything this season something can't be said about CapetownCity and Wits who are currently doing well in PSL,, whom I believe they should be ranked above Mpanzis who last won a cup two years ago... Even Matsatsantsa Chiefs should be way too far above them interms of rankings,,,,anywae it was unnecessary for these brown envelopes to be function like this#imMarried
