BOHLOKONG. – The Why Not Ring Club are the 2015 champions of the Thabo Mofutsanyana Ring Clubs League.

The Bohlokong-based team won the league after they had proven to be the best by collecting 36 points in 16 games, beating their contenders in the Vampires and Super Eagles, who finished second and third respectively.

Andy Lepesa, the ring games co-ordinator, says the 2015 competition was stiff, but they would like to give credit to the Ditau Ring Club for participating and winning the Rookie of the Year Award.

“I think the team played well in their first season and we believe they will come on strong next season,” he said.

Bongani Mgomezulu (13) of the champions was named the overall best player. He was consistent in all the league games and scored as if his life depended on it.

Lepesa, who is also the team coach, said Mgomezulu has a great future in ring games. “He knows how to read the game and capitalise on the opponents’ mistakes. He has also proven to be a hard nut to crack when facing the seniors,” he said.

He said they were hoping to get the recognition they deserved from the sporting bodies in national and local government, since they were living from hand to mouth.

“We would like people to come up front with any kind of help they can offer. We know that people are not familiar with this sport, but we would like to see more people joining so that we make it one of the best sports in the world,” he pleaded.
