Busy Bees Rugbv Football Club will be looking to rewrite the history books when they take on Macassar in the Super League C decider at Newlands on Saturday.

The club has already made history by qualifying to play in the Super League B along with Saturday’s opponents.

Last weekend, they beat Goodwood 27-24 in the semi-final at City Park in Athlone. However, a win on Saturday will mean they finish on top of the log and will have their name etched on the Super League C trophy and history.

The club goes in the match as underdogs, however, with their record for the season, it would be difficult to write them off.

In the 14 matches they have played, they have accumulated 57 points, loosing only in two games.

Alfred Kewana, Director of Rugby at the club, has praised the players, management and supporters for their commitment. He said the promotion coincided with the club’s 95th anniversary celebrations and they want to cement their place in the upper division.

He said the players were ready for the task at hand and needed no further motivation for their fixture on Saturday.

“Going to play in Newlands is a dream and a motivation to the players,” he said. He appealed to all rugby supporters, particularly their fans, to turn up in numbers on Saturday.

“We want to paint the stadium black for Dannie Craven to rise from the dead and see all the black people at the stadium,” said Kewana.

He also appealed for big business to support the team. He said most of their players face numerous challenges, including travelling by train, given the current state of the rail system and the fact that things are going to get tougher in the new division. “All our opponents have excellent resources, but that does not deter us. We are used to struggling and poverty,” he said.

“We are going there with a plan, in the next five years, we want to play in the Super League A, to coincide with our centenary celebrations.” The game starts at 12.30. Tickets cost R20 for adults and R10 for children.
