Score Sevens action at CPUT and Derby match day in Paarl

The WPRFU Score Rugby Sevens rolled into action this past week with more than eighty matches played in typical exciting sevens rugby fashion at the CPUT sports fields.
The event now in its fifth year and second at CPUT again saw a mass of WPRFU clubs in action with forty-eight teams all sporting their new Score Sevens Rugby Jerseys, supported by African Bank and CTC Sports.
Day one of the WPRFU Score Club Sevens saw just over eighty fixtures play out at CPUT across four pools which will culminate in the traditional Cup, Plate, Shield and Bowls finals in four weeks. As with most sevens rugby, the day was filled with entertainment including food stalls, mobile music and the Bashwes Kiddies zone.
After five matches Albion’s ended the day with a clean record and took the top spot in Pool A with five tries on the day from Xavier Mitchell. Busy Bees lie in second place also after five games and sees their Khanyiso Doyi grab the tournament second highest point scorer position with an incredible seven tries and thirty-five points on the board. Uni-Mil is third and defending Champions Tygerberg is fourth in the pool with two games in hand.
Durbell, Hands and Heart and Goodwood were unbeaten in Pool B with four from four and secure the top three positions respectively with Kylemore in fourth place. Hands and Heart have again showed that they are a danger team as they not only have the tournament's top points scorer Brandon Ashley Collins but also the current highest points difference across all four pools. Collins amassed forty-one points with seven tries and three conversions. Hands also walked away as the front runners with the highest points scored ranking so far, having amassed a whopping one hundred and thirty-one points on the opening day.
Pool C saw only Helderberg and Maties walk away unscathed as they were both unbeaten on the opening day securing first and second on the log with Young Wesleys and Van der Stel Evergreens in third and fourth respectively.
Hamiltons took the lead in Pool D followed by Belhar, Kuilsriver and UWC respectively. Hamiltons ended as the only unbeaten side in the pool and walked away as the day's tournament third highest point scoring team with eighteen tries.
This Saturday the ball gets rolling at 13:15 with just over sixty fixtures scheduled for the day. The opening matches start in Pool C with Maties up against Whistling Wheels, Silverleaf vs Helderberg, Van der Stel – Evergreens vs Noordelikkes. Bellville and Young Peoples will both open their sevens campaign this week in opening matches after missing day one.
WP Club rugby fans will be happy to know that the Paarl Region sees a full day of rugby action at the Faure Stadium this weekend as Albion’s and Paarl Rangers host a full day of rugby in addition to their derby. Both these sides are more than one hundred years old. The day starts at 08:45 and will see a mix of juniors, women’s, veterans and seniors rugby with the main match kicks of at 17:15.
