THE Durban Rugby Sub Union Youth Rugby hosted the finals of the Colts Season last weekend. The season saw eight tournaments take place over the past eight weeks, with hundreds of pupils involved in junior club rugby.

This season saw an increase of just over 21% in registered players in the Colts season, which caters from U13 to U18 players. The clubs span a large area of KZN, from the South Coast Warriors to Pietermaritzburg Collegians, Empangeni Club and the well-know and established Durban clubs such as Harlequins, Crusaders, Hillcrest Villagers, Toti, Jaguars and Collegians.

During the finals, over 500 players arrived at Harlequins on the Bluff to play for first, second, third and fourth place.

DRSU Youth Rugby chairperson Rudy Havenga said: “The Colts finals has highlighted the love and passion for the game at a grass-roots level. “The style of rugby played at this level of club rugby is promising for rugby in general as boys get to bond irrespective of what school they go to or where they live. It’s pure love for the game and it’s been a extraordinary day for all.”
