Youth club rugby in KZN gets into full swing this weekend with the official start of the league season.
Amanzimtoti U18’s take on Doncaster Rugby Club in what has become an annual tour match. Doncaster are always very competitive, but Toti – with a packed and vocal home crowd, may just have the edge, Sure to be a good game.
Sunday sees the first of the league games (fixtures below). Less games than normal, with 3 games being postponed due to boys being away for the Glenwood – Affies fixture. Although the first fixtures are often the “settling in” games, there are some good match ups. Crusaders play Collegians in the U13A division and this is always a good game. Rovers make their first appearance in many years in the U15A league and square off against their neighbours from across the park, Collegians. Always good to see new entrants. Both the U16 and U18 Collegians vs Harlequins matches are sure to be action packed. Collegians look to have the edge in the U16’s, with Grant Khomo players Kurt Webster, Yuric Thambiran and Jordan Martin on the park. Harlequins may have the upper hand in the U18 game, as they have some exciting backs.
