The St Andrew’s College seven aside team took part in the “Lentefees Sevens Elite Rugby Tournament” hosted by Nico Malan in Humansdorp, just outside Jeffrey’s bay, during the last weekend of the holidays.
The 16 participating schools were divided into four groups and St Andrew’s finished top of their pool with victories over Nico Malan 29-12, Port Elizabeth Invitational 29-0 and Brandwag 31-19.
The boys can be very proud of their performance and for being the only undefeated team at the tournament. They were unfortunately knocked out in the quarter finals in a 17-all draw to Framesby where the tournament rules state that in the event of a draw, the team that scored last goes through to the next round.
St Andrew’s College played a very attractive, fast paced and expansive style of rugby and despite it being their first time taking part in the school sevens circuit the future looks bright for St Andrew’s sevens rugby.
