In pics: Connect U15s win in the Winelands

Our boys were rugby sevens champions on Saturday.

Our Connect Sports Academy Under 15 crop have been focusing on their school studies since the end of the rugby season in September.

But they enjoyed a well-earned trip to the Cape Winelands on Saturday, not dropping a match en route to winning the Elsenburg Winelands Summer 7s near Stellenbosch, including a 45-0 win in the final.

It was the perfect opportunity for several of our youngsters placed on high school scholarships in Cape Town to meet up with their academy mates and bring out the skills.

The boys return to their schools on Monday to polish off their end-of-year exams, before joining us for our off-season training programme at our Burgundy High Performance Centre home.
