THE U15A and U13B Pietermaritzburg Collegians were crowned champions at the Durban Rugby Sub Union Youth Rugby finals of the Colts Season on Sunday.

The season has seen eight tournaments take place over the past eight weeks where hundreds of pupils have been 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 to Empangeni Club plus the well know and established Durban based clubs like Harlequins, Crusaders, Hillcrest Villagers, Toti, Jaguars and Collegians.

This past Sunday over 500 players arrived at Harlequins on the Bluff to play off in the finals for first, second, third and fourth place.

DRSU Youth Rugby chairman, Rudy Havenga said: “The Colts finals has highlighted the love and passion for the game at a grassroots 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 extra-ordinary day for all.”
