2018-10-24 06:00

PORT Elizabeth’s Kwaru Rugby Club won the Women’s Club Championship in Cape Town, after defeating Fort Hare 19-7 at the Langa Sports Grounds in the final of the fifth edition of the tournament, last week Sunday.

Middelburg won the plate final after delivering a well-balanced display for a 43-0 victory against the George Lilies.

The tournament, which featured the best nine clubs from across the country, battled it out in the two-day tournament, which culminated in the respective finals.

Kwaru’s players were in good form from the outset as they registered a 22-10 victory against the George Lilies in their opening match and built on this with a 15-7 victory against the University of Johannesburg, before defeating the Busy Bees 14-10 to book their place in the cup final.

Fort Hare, meanwhile, started the competition with a 62-0 bang against Matlosana and then beat Tygerberg 27-12 in their second pool match. The teams met again and the Eastern Cape outfit again dominated for a 32-12 victory to secure their place in the grand finale against Kwaru.

Middelburg, in turn, registered victories against the Busy Bees and the University of Limpopo before lining up against the George Lilies in the plate final.
