Now an institution on both the social and rugby calendar down in the Western Cape, the Cape Town Tens is now “Net om die hoek” … Taking place on the 1st and 2nd of February at Hamilton’s Rugby Club.
Grunt editor Tank Lanning, normally bending a bar stool in the beer tent, breaks new ground by taking on a team manager role – actually earning his keep at the tournament for once!
Keep an eye out for Team EC … A bunch of roughnecks from the Eastern Cape … Skippered by Ikey stalwart Andre Coetzer, managed by Tank, one can only assume that the “Mainly for the beer” league will never be the same again …
During the semi-finals of the Premier League on Saturday, six finalists will be tasked with kicking a ball into a Stor-Age box placed on the halfway line. The three closest will then go into a kick off during the final of the Premier League. Hit the crossbar and you drive home in a brand new GTI!
Last year former Springbok Coach’s son Doug Mallet did the business with a miracle kick … “It’s completely ridiculous, stupidly lucky… I mean, I’ll never hit that in a hundred thousand times.” said Mallet. But iff it happened before, it can happen again …
Visitors can look out for the Stor-Age branded promotion girls at the tournament who will be taking entries on the Friday and Saturday.
Tickets to the Tens are available at www.webtickets.co.za … R70 per person, R50 for students and free for kids under 12.
