It’s heart-warming to see how far our club rugby friendships reach, as we see another weekend filled with endorsed friendlies including clubs from our neighbouring districts.
This Friday Tygerberg host Boland Club Roses United while on Saturday St Georges host Ashton RFC and Windmeul United are up against Young Stars from Wellington. One might consider the match between Sir Lowrians and Villiersdorp to be a derby match considering they are virtually neighbours.
In addition to the above, the action starts this Friday as UCT engage their non-varsity cup players in matches against Villagers and Busy Bees. To see the rest of the weekend friendlies please see below.
UCT is currently second on the Varsity Cup log having won three from four, while Maties are unbeaten in third with three from three. This coming Monday sees Maties host Tuks and UCT host Wits while CPUT travel to the Peter Booysen stadium in Pietermaritzburg to play UKZN.
Our club rugby players continue to enjoy the experience of playing for as a provincial squad as Coach Jerome Paarwater took his WPRFU XV to Wellington last weekend to play against Boland at Boland Park. This weekend the squad play at Newlands in a curtain-raiser to the DHL Stormers vs Blues match. These are certainly exciting times for these young players. The players will now return to their clubs to prepare for their first club rugby fixtures before they return to his fold when they play their first SuperSport Challenge match in April.
As head of club rugby high performance, Jerome continues with his work helping the clubs. The next opportunity is this coming Wednesday, 4 March 2020, which sees all WP Club Rugby coaches invited to a specialist session on defence at the high-performance centre in Bellville at 6:30 pm.
Our youth rugby structures are also up and running and fans will be happy to know that they can enjoy a full day of rugby at Newlands tomorrow as we see mini rugby action kick off at 10:15 with under 8 years old children from several different schools in Western Province having some fun.
