Forty-Two Tries Scored At U/18 Girl’s Week In Welkom


In Welkom, the focus moved to the U18 teams at the SA Rugby U16 and U18 Girls Weeks played at HT Pelatona Projects Stadium and like Monday, when the U16 teams played, some excellent matches were produced by the girls.

DHL Western Province, SWD Eagirls, Limpopo Blue Bulls and the Mastercard Golden Lions looked most impressive and one of them is likely to finish the tournament undefeated. In total 42 tries were scored, with the Limpopo side getting seven and the WP and SWD sides 6 each in their respective wins.
