DHS U15A 7s Rugby Team - Winners of the Bowl Final

DHS U15A 7s Rugby Team – Winners of the Bowl Final


Durban High School hosted its annual Sevens Rugby Tournament on Friday 30 and Saturday 31 August. Teams from around the province attended the event, with 10 U17 teams and 12 U15 teams participating in the Tournament.
Once again, it was a slick event, well run and organised by Mr Nathan Pillay, Head of Sport at DHS, and Darryl Weir of Bizskills. The event was sponsored by Twizza and catering done by Peppers & Pans.
The DHS teams played some excellent 7s Rugby and won their way through to the Cup Finals of both the U15 and U17 events. Both finals were wonderful displays of rugby, but tough for ours boys as the games were so close, particularly the U15s. The U15 event was won by Glenwood and the U17 by Westville Boys’.
One of the highlights of the day was a visit by three Blitzbokke … Ilunga Mukendi, Mfundo Ndhlovu and Marius Schoeman (SA 7s High Performance Manager). The boys made the most of the opportunity to have photos taken with their heroes! Another highlight was a Touch Rugby game played by a mixture of DHS Current Boys and Old Boys. The game was played in memory of DHS Old Boy, Robbie May, who was recently killed in a car accident; Robbie had been the vice-captain of Rugby. A minute’s silence was held for him before the game.
