7's Touch Rugby Fundraising Event


The 3 year 'Impi' group was given the opportunity to organise and manage a fundraising event. The purpose being, to raise funds for the purchase of equipment for their conservation projects.

The first of three events was a 7's Rugby tournament hosted at the Hluhluwe Rugby Club this weekend.

Due to the adverse weather conditions, fewer than expected teams arrived for the tournament. Ultimately, a total of 6 teams took part in the tournament, with teams coming from as far as Pongola in support of the fundraiser. 
The tournament took the format of a 'round robin', with all teams playing each other.

The  following teams entered:
  • Pongola
  • Hluhluwe Rhinos
  • Alpha Security (Hluhluwe)
  • Team Badminton
  • Bhejane1
  • Bhejane2
The first game kicked off at 9am as the rain clouds cleared and the sun came out.
The Pongola and Alpha Security teams qualified for the semi- finals and had a nail biting game. Alpha Security played a well structured game and took the win of 3 - 1!
At the end of the round robin, Hluhluwe Rhino's were in the lead, with Pongola and the Badmington Team on equal points.  The Badmington Team, chose not to play a Semi-final, offering the final spot to Pongola.
After a 15 minute break the final kicked off as everyone watched with anticipation. The final was a 10 minute a side game where Hluhluwe Rhinos played confidently and finished strongly with a 4 - 0 victory over the Pongola side.
