WP Club Rugby news

It’s been another positive week of rugby at Western Province. After our win over the Blues at Newlands our DHL Stormers team is flying high and is looking forward to this weekend’s encounter against the Reds.
Even though we are still unable to play any pre-season club rugby friendlies within our boundaries, many of our clubs are coming up with creative ways to keep their players active. Several are traveling outside of the Cape Town Municipal area to play friendlies. Most of these friendlies are against Boland clubs, but this week we saw a few friendlies where WP teams were up against each other. This cross-province support during the water crisis has certainly shown the spirit of positivity amongst rugby players, and once again shows how the rugby community stand together during challenging times.

Franschhoek RFC held their memorial rugby day at Franschhoek High School this past Saturday. The day saw a number of teams and spectators come together to remember the 2015 tragic bus accident which claimed the lives of three Franschhoek players.

Van der Stel RFC teamed up with Evergreens to take on Simondium, and even though the results are less important than the team participation at this stage, Van der Stel/Evergreen took the win 26-20.

Super League B team Franschhoek RFC played Super League A outfit NTK RFC at the same venue, where both teams showed their mettle in a close game which ultimately saw NTK win 29-21.

Other matches this past weekend included Hands and Hearts (50) against Grabouw (43), Maccasar (38) vs Atlantic (12), Kraaifonten RFC (31) vs Botrivier (45), Retreat (41) vs Piketberg (43), Rangers (35) vs Windmeul United (19), Scottsdene (27) vs Tou Park ( (27).

On Wednesday we saw two Super League A clubs tackle one another as Milnerton RFC took on Brackenfell RFC at the Melkbos High School. Brackenfell showing their winning ways with a 42-14 win.

This weekend, more friendlies are taking place, once again arranged with the kind collaboration from schools and neighbouring provinces. Amongst other matches we see Kuils River RFC travel to Malmesbury to play Never Despair while Franschhoek take on Good Hopes in Riebeek Wes and Stellenbosch Coronations go to Wolseley.

Our coaching courses for 7’s and 15’s rugby continues to go well, as well as our strength and conditioning and referee’s courses.

This weekend will see the hosting of the 1st girls rugby festival of the year at City Park tomorrow with more than 20 schools having confirmed their attendance. Teams will participate in the u14, u16 and u18 categories. The senior women’s trials will take place on Monday at City Park from 6pm.

We congratulate the thirteen WP senior women’s players selected to attend the senior women’s national training camp held at City Park from Wednesday and ending today.

The next Boksmart course will be held tomorrow at Brackenfell Primary starting from 08h00. For subsequent course information contact

This weekend the Newlands Faithful can watch the DHL Stormers take on the Reds at Newlands and fans are encouraged to support our boys. Tickets are available at or at the Newlands box office.

Tickets can be collected from the Computicket Office at the Stadium from 09h00 on match day.
