Connect Athletes In Action: 25 May

Where to catch our rugby players this weekend.

SACS vs Paarl Gim

It’s another big weekend for our athletes placed on scholarships at SACS in Cape Town, as they take on Paarl Gimnasium on Saturday morning.

Our Under 15A trio Aya Machuli, Akha Mjawule and Ilitha ‘Mister’ Ntinini take the field at 10:10 in the southern suburbs, with Niche Koopman featuring for the U14A side at 9.05.

Eugene Solomons also continues his comeback from injury at senior level.

Eben Donges vs Jan van Riebeeck

We’re delighted that several of our non-scholarship development athletes are continuing to play rugby with Jan van Riebeeck High School this weekend.

Our crew will feature across the age groups for the Cape Town school in Kraaifontein on Saturday, as they play against Eben Donges High School.

Also in action…

Our leading senior athlete, Sesethu Mtshazi, returns to Western Province action for the first time in 2019, as they start their defence of the Currie Cup title next month.

Sese plays in a friendly match against Boland at City Park in Athlone, Cape Town, with kick off at 11:30.
