Score WP Club Rugby Sevens on again

After an overwhelming number of clubs applied to play in the Score WP Club Rugby Sevens our process on securing venues, teams, players, and several additional logistics concluded and the Score WP Clugby Rugby series is again up and running.

The Score WP Club Rugby Sevens series got off to a bang across three venues this weekend with Paarl 

(Faure Street), Goodwood RFC and Hamilton’s RFC playing host. The series sees thirty-three teams playing in four pools and the top two from each pool playing in the finals at Newlands on 20 November 2021. Highlights of all three venues on all days will be broadcast on Cape Rugby TV every Wednesday from 21:00 on Cape Town TV, DStv ch263.

As before the creative process at clubs has been fascinating to watch as our clubs have again been given the opportunity to select their own unique Jersey designs. This weekend saw the clubs sporting their sublimated Jerseys with logo, colour and design courtesy of CTC Sports and Score Energy Drinks and as before this added to the excitement of the series.

Last weekend saw more than a hundred and sixty junior girls participating in the final Girls YTC Festival for 2021 at City Park. The days included girls u14, u16 and u18 playing Sevens rugby and as usual, the day was a great success with lots of fun had by all. We congratulate our administrators on the sterling work they have done to support and drive the junior girl’s structures and we have no doubt that together with our WP Rugby Women’s Collective and the additional focus on the growth of Women’s Rugby our Women and Girls structures will grow to the next level.

Much of the success of this drive has come from the concept of ensuring all clubs have a Women’s Rugby representative. For those clubs who have not yet appointed a representative to focus on growing the Women and Girls structures at their clubs, we remind you to please allocate someone at your club. As you can see from the evidence these structures are not dependent on having a club women’s team and guaranteed fixtures but provides a platform to create opportunity. If you would like to sign up as a representative for your club please click here.

Don’t forget to sign up for your World Rugby Level One Sevens coaching course which takes place on 19 November 2021. With Sevens Rugby being the talk of the town at this time of year and considering the simplified format and that Sevens Rugby is the perfect way to get started in rugby now is a good time to learn the basics of coaching rugby.

Our Level one coaches are reminded to sign up for their World Rugby Level One course now. You can use this form to sign up for either course.

After a number of weeks, the Friendly Cup between Blue Jets, Gardens, Faure and Police finally concluded at Gardens RFC. Last Saturday saw four matches between the first and second teams with the result in the Plate final going in favour of Police as they beat Faure and the Cup Final saw a win for Blue Jets over Gardens.
We’re excited to announce that five DHL WP Rugby players have been called up to play in the Carling Championships match to face Kenya at Loftus Versfeld this coming weekend. The selection comes after a unique process that saw the fans make their voices heard as they were able to vote for their favourite players using various digital and social media platforms.
