A group of our athletes took to the field for the first of our tour rugby fixtures on Thursday, as Connect Sports Academy played against the Army Foundation College from Harrogate, England.
It was the first of many matches we’ll be playing throughout 2019 in partnership with our friends at Edwin Doran Sports Tours.
We’re working with the tour company to provide playing opportunities for our young athletes from across Cape Town.
Barbarian spirit, South Africa style
These games are a chance for our boys to come together and express themselves as players.
They’re also a chance to bring young people from different backgrounds – and different ends of the planet – together through a shared love of rugby.
Thank you to the Army Foundation College for the game and we wish your entire party the very best for the rest of your tour in the Western Cape.
A big thanks also to the team at Edwin Doran for helping to make this possible, as well as everyone connected with Langa Stadium for giving our representative side a home for the day.
