St John’s Easter Festival 2017



The 22nd St John's College will take place from the 13th till 17th of April 2017. The week sees Florida, Eye of the Tiger and a combined NSW team from Australia making their appearance. The most noticeable withdrawal is that of Monnas who will be attending the Kearsney Festival in Durban.

The Eye of the Tiger Rugby Academy (EOTT) is a South African, Non-Profit organisation (NPO) and is an initiative to harness and train a ready pool of, rugby talented youth, future rugby administrators etc. This High-Performance training Academy is designed to ensure the continuous development and supply from the primary base of the previously excluded communities and schools especially rural and townships areas.

The main objective is to ensure that there is enough talent of bankable rugby athletes that are ready to be passed on to the current S.A Rugby Unions and ultimately the Springboks in the future to support the country‘s call for transformation in rugby. This prepared capacity will be passed on to the sports industry in a ready-made state.

The Eye of the Tiger caters for rugby talent from the U15 to u21 years. It has got both the 15men and Seven aside training programmes already with about 14 teams comprising 15 men and Seven’s team which have competed at various levels.
