Connect Athletes In Action: 18 May

Where to catch our rugby players this weekend.


The rugby season continues around Cape Town this weekend, with several of our senior and school-age athletes taking the field.

Rondebosch Boys’ High vs SACS

It’s derby day in Cape Town’s southern suburbs on Saturday, as Rondebosch Boys’ High School and SACS meet.

That means our Bosch front row duo Lukhanyo ‘Boepa’ Vokozela and Lamla Nunu on the opposing side to our clutch of younger athletes placed on scholarships at SACS.

The First XV match kicks off at 12:15 with Akha Mjawule, Aya Machuli and Ilitha ‘Mister’ Ntinini in action bright and early at 8:30 with the U15A side and Niche Koopman playing for the U14A team at 10:30

UCT vs Union Milnerton Under 20s

Fresh from a bye last weekend, our Burgundy High Performance Centre apprentices take the field again for Union Milnerton away to UCT on Saturday.

Also in action…

We have a whole host of youngsters playing for Jan van Riebeeck High School as they take on Bellville Suid in Cape Town.
