Beach Rugby Series 5 kicks off with a bang on Camps Bay

Summer Series starts with a bang!!!

 

The summer edition of Cape Towns favourite touch series tapped off in great style with teams making the best of the cool conditions on the sands of Camps Bay beach. From the offset, teams had a full go at each other with the new kids on the block, The Dynamiters, getting a maiden win over The Foot Tsekkers. Now, you might not have heard of the latter team but they are a new look team which previous competed as the Inbetweeners. They are hoping the change of name and some key personnel will give them the upper hand on the sand.

 

Last series’ winners AGW were back to their winning ways with getting 2 seemingly easy wins and not letting a single try past them. They will be looking to keep their reign as champions of the beach. The longest standing team on the series and undoubtedly a crowd favorite, the CB Legends, arrived with one goal - to win. They made it 2 from 2 but had to work in both games to ensure that their opposition didn’t get a sniff in the latter stages of the games.

 

The Office National Hout Bay Fire team, or simply referred to as ON FIRE did not get off to the start that they would have wanted. Many of them have played on the soft sands before but need a couple of games to regain their beach legs. All in all, the first round of the summer series was interesting one. Teams started the journey to towards greatness on the sand, players found themselves asking questions about their fitness and spectators enjoyed the beuaty that is touch touch.

 

See you next Thursday!
