This past Saturday saw all our teams in action against the newly-promoted Uni-Mil. It proved to be the ideal pre-season friendly as we were able to measure exactly where we are after a hard fitness and conditioning January and February. All the matches were played with squads and consisted of 4 20-minute chukkas. Players were played in different positions, different combinations were tested and on-field match structures were put in place. The day proved to be a resounding success on the field and it is pleasing to see our player numbers this year.
The 1st XV will be travelling with a squad to Clanwilliam on Friday. The match against the local club side will take place at 16h00 followed by an aftermatch club function. The team will return to Cape Town on Sunday morning. A combined Seconds and Thirds squad will also be participating in the Kraaifontein Rugby Day on Saturday so as to ensure that all our players are now getting much-needed game time.
Wow! Die Blitsbokke is net pure blits!! Another fantastic display by our South African Sevens team to take the Las Vegas Sevens in spectacular style – and that was achieved without Seabelo Senatla and Kwagga Smith. Also, congratulations to the DHL Stormers for their win against the Jaguares – a team with so many Argentinian internationals. Well done to both those teams on their victories!
Next Wednesday 15 March 2017 the Derby Day Golf Day will take place at Metropolitan Golf Club starting at 13h00.
