THE South Coast Warriors made history in Matatiele on Saturday by becoming the first rugby team to win the Usher Cup three times in a row since its inception.

The Warriors steamrolled all competition to book their way in the final against the hosts Matatiele, whom they gave a 44 – 0 wallop to lift the cup.
Their first match of the day was against Ixopo who they also beat
44-0 and the semi-final was against Kappailand who provided some resistance but went down 19 – 7.
Warriors player Karel van Rooyen was named Player of the Tournament after displaying an excellent performance.

Head coach Christo Henderson had nothing but praise for his players and said the achievement was because of hard work.

“With a lot of new comers in the squad, some of the youngsters made their mark and will definitely be considered for selection later this month when we select the final squad for the Moor Cup,” said Henderson.

On 2 April the Warriors square off against Amanzimtoti at Durban’s Growth Point Kings Park.
