A KWADUKUZA lady, studying at the University Of Cape Town, is set to represent South Africa in the Tag Rugby World Cup, taking place in Australia in November.

Nokwanda Shezi, a 21 year old Bcom Accounting honours student from Thembeni near Groutville, has been selected, along with 19 other players from different provinces, to represent team South Africa for their second appearance at the tournament.

Shezi said that tag rugby is still a new sport in South Africa and, as a result, they haven’t been able to secure sponsorships to assist players to get to Australia.

“Each player is currently encouraged to seek funding in their own capacity and, at the same time, we are looking for ways to raise funds as a team as the total cost of the trip for each player is R 40 000.

“I am appealing to the community to make any kind of donation to make this trip possible as I will be representing our town, province and our country,” she said.
