Comments Off on HOT SUMMER OF TOUCH

Three (3) weeks of early mornings and late nights. Seven (7) events with exhilarating Touch and the best fun ever was experienced by over 400 teams, 100 000 spectators and 20 very tired Crew members!

The action culminated at Hartenbos on the 31st of December and once again the ATKV Amphitheater was the scene for some dramatic Touch Action!

56 Teams took part in this annual highlight for the region and the Series Winning Score Living Legends once again stole the headlines with their fifth title in seven events on the 2016 Series.

They took on the local heroes, the Garden Route Saints, who once again pushed the Legends all the way. The deciding try coming in the Sudden Death drop-off. Final Score 2-1 to the Legends.

The Plate was won by “The Question” who beat the Scrum and Coke team 3-2

The Junior Division was convincingly won by the Perfect Gents Jnr who beat the Dery Devils 8-1 in the Final

A new innovation which looks set to become a feature in next years series was the Over 40’s section. This was won by a very tired bunch of Ou Toppies called “Under 10 Seconds”
