Cape Town’s Langa Rugby Club, together with SA Rugby, will be hosting an Easter Rugby Festival from 22-24 March. SA Rugby has been running this event for the past four years.

“Traditional Easter Rugby festivals have been in existence for a number of years. We have been revolving around the country. Last year we were in Soweto, now we are in Langa,” says Manager of the Club Rugby Union for SA Rugby, Xhanti Lamani.

The event will feature 16 senior teams from around the country.

“These teams range from Cape Town, Orkney, Umtata, Port Elizabeth, Port St Johns, East London and Welkom. Almost throughout the country,” explains Lamani.

Prizes include money and equipment.

“Our clubs are in need of equipment, so we are assisting in that regard,” he adds.

Lamani says the significance of this year’s tournament is the corporate sponsors who have come on-board to assist.
