Opportunity for under 16 rugby players

2015-11-25 06:23

A WONDERFUL opportunity awaits talented under 16 rugby players in the Eastern Cape with the news of an invitation by the Rovigo rugby club in Italy to an Eastern Cape invitation team to participate in an under 16 tournament in Rovigo from April 30, 2016, to May 1, 2016.

South Africa’s rugby relationship with Rovigo dates back to the days when legends such as Naas Botha, Danie Gerber, Rob Louw, Nelie Smith and Gert Smal represented the Italian club.

The most recent invitation includes hosting the participating under 16 teams and the players’ accommodation- and other costs. While there, they will also be visiting Venetia and the Ferrari sports car factory.

There are however costs and arrangements relating to flights, passports, visas and spending a few days in Italy before the start of the tournament.

A meeting to exchange ideas and to get the arrangements on the way is planned for Saturday, November 28, 2015.

Local young rugby players who were born between January 1, 2000, and December 31, 2001, are invited to attend this session together with their parents or guardians.
