Cape Town - The popular Castle Cape Town Tens rugby event, the brainchild of Bob Skinstad and Rob Fleck, is just around the corner! 

It takes place on Friday and Saturday, February 3-4, and will be hosted at the Hamilton Rugby Club for the fourth consecutive year.

This year’s Tens promises to be a highlight of the rugby year with an exciting music line-up, appearances from local and international rugby legends, competitions and giveaways, and a new addition, an exciting rugby expo.

2012 boasts an incredible line-up of live entertainment including the popular group Goodluck, The Graeme Watkins Project, The Lightyears and Me and Mr Brown. 

With three rugby fields, beer and food tents, kiddies play areas, as well as a host of rugby legends and SA personalities, there is plenty to experience both on and off the rugby field for the whole family.

Enjoy a drink with mates in the beer tent while watching the rugby action and the kids will be entertained at the same time in the play area.

Promising to be bigger and better than before, this year the number of teams has been increased from 56 to 72, with four divisions-– a heavy and light Beer League, The Vets League and the more competitive Premier League.
