Youth Weeks: Day 1 Report

SCHOOLS WRAP: Scintillating action and the best provincial schoolboy rugby talent highlighted the opening day of the Under-13 Craven Week and Under-16 Khomo Week at Hoërskool Rob Ferreira in White River on Monday, 24 June 2019.


The Western Province teams showed massive intent in their performance in both tournaments, with their Under-13 side winning 70-12 against Valke and their Under-16 team outclassing Boland to the tune of 78-7. The Golden Lions scored the second biggest win of the day with their 57-7 win over Border in the Under-13 Craven Week.

That dominance apart, numerous matches were fiercely competitive, with last minute scores determining the final results on numerous occasions.

The Under-16 SA Rugby Grant Khomo Week also saw the debut of the SA Iqhawe team, with the side, assisted by former Springbok, Kabamba Floors, showing real potential before going down to a late try in their match against Pumas.
