Kimberley residents can look forward to a rugby feast this weekend. Kimberley based team, Griquas is expected to play against Blue Bulls, whereas the South African Defence Force (SANDF) will play against Sishen and the Sol Plaatje university.
The SANDF team coach Andrew Michaels says the tournament is paving a way for the major national rugby tournament that will take place in Kimberley next month.
“The Sol Plaatje University game is a must win. Sol Plaatje University is a team that is their third game they are playing in the league. However, Sishen are the Champs in the whole of the Northern Cape and they take part in the South African National Championship called the Gold Cup therefore it is important for us to make our mark against this top team. In our starting line-up we will have one of the South African forces player that will later this year go to China JP Harmse, we will also have a lot of provincial SANDF players,” says Micheal.
