WP Club Rugby News

29/03/2018
Normally at this time of year we would be on the verge of kicking off the first games of the WP Club Rugby season, but, due to the weather crisis, this has delayed our season.

The Easter Weekend has traditionally been an opportunity for clubs to celebrate in festival format, and also put the finishing touches to their teams with friendly matches arranged over this period.
We’re happy to say that many of our clubs have continued this tradition with creative ways to play rugby over the Easter weekend, and as such we’re expecting a very exciting weekend of rugby.
 
We’re thrilled to see our very own Busy Bees RFC hosting their Easter Weekend festival at CPUT Bellville campus this weekend. This festival sees twenty six teams from all over South Africa take part with eleven of these teams from within our WP Club Rugby ranks, playing Saturday to Monday, including women and youth teams. I must congratulate Busy Bees RFC and the LOC for the extraordinary amount of work they have put into hosting this tournament. They have done so under very challenging circumstances during the water crisis.
 
Other festivals this weekend sees Tygerberg travel to Saldanha and Rangers to Bredasdorp where the latter is hosting their 100-year celebrations.
 
Friendlies this weekend includes Whistling Wheels RFC traveling to Ceres where they face Bella Vista RFC, Elsies River RFC are up against Porterville RFC in their home town and SK Walmers RFC take on Hawston RFC.
 
Meanwhile this past week saw some interesting results including two Super League A teams Union Milnerton RFC and Brackenfell RFC tackle each other at Melkbos High School, and even though Brackenfell walked away as the eventual winners both coaches Ismaeel Dollie (Union Milnerton) and Tinus van Rensburg (Brackenfell RFC) affirmed that the real winner on the day, was rugby. Once again showing that rugby, really does have the ability to facilitate social cohesion.
 
Please see a full list of results below.
 
Our High-performance manager for club rugby Jerome Paarwater took a development team to Wellington for a practice match against the Boland Currie Cup team. This was a great opportunity for our club players. Footage of this match can be watched on Cape Rugby TV on Wed 9pm on Cape Town TV, DStv ch263.
 
On the senior front I’d like to congratulate our DHL Stormers team on yet another fantastic performance at Newlands as they beat the Reds 25-19. This weekend our boys travel north to face one of our oldest rivals, The Bulls at Loftus. We wish them the very best of luck as we all stand together behind our boys.
 
We encourage all Newlands Faithfull to use the hashtag #WeStandTogether in your social media shares in relation to DHL WP Rugby.

On a final note I’d like to wish all those celebrating the Easter Weekend a blessed weekend and remember to be safe on the roads.
 
Best Regards,
Danny Jones
