“We went up against Florida Park High School and taught them a thing or two about schoolboy rugby. Our U16 team beat them, with Ontatile Mphahlele taking man-of-the-match on the day. These boys are sharpening up to be some exciting rugby players,” added Shangase.

Meanwhile, Midrand High School’s first team lost 7–31 to Vorentoe High School coming off a 31–12 win over Florida Park High School.

“We would love to see the community at our home games. We have made a great effort to play on the weekends so we can see all our supporters,” concluded Shangase.
