The first round of the 2015 Community Challenge Cup club rugby competition kicked off this past weekend on Saturday 14 February 2015.
With ten teams – five each from the Boland Rugby Union and Western Province Rugby Football Union - competing against each other in the round robin stages, the competition was as tight as ever, with only one match being won convincingly when False Bay trampled Vredenburg Rugby club.
While Boland teams Saldanha RFC and Roses United just fell short against Paarl Region and Belhar respectively, Never Despair and Hawston fought hard to beat their WP counterparts SK Walmers and Primrose.
ROSES UNITED 10-21 BELHAR
VREDENBURG 13-83 FALSE BAY
NEVER DESPAIR 28-27 SK WALMERS
SALDANHA 24-30 PAARL REGION
HAWSTON 20-17 PRIMROSE
Ten Clubs from the Boland Rugby Union and Western Province Rugby Football Union are getting ready for the annual Community Challenge Cup Club Rugby Competition which kicks-off on Saturday 14 February 2015.
The participating clubs are: (from Boland) Hawston, Never Despair, Saldanha, Roses United, Vredenburg, (from WP) False Bay, Belhar, Paarl Region, SK Walmers and Primrose.
The Stormers finished their Super Rugby pre-season schedule with a 7-45 victory over Boland Cavaliers at the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday.
With just nine full Stormers squad members in the mix (out of 25 players selected), this young outfit showed plenty of pace, power and precision to score seven tries to one in a one-sided affair.
