Living Legends show their Class
A stunning day in Stilbaai saw the Living Legends from Strand win the thirty fifth edition of Stilbaai Touchies and in so doing also winning the All Gold Hot Summer of Touch Grand Prix Title.
Going in to the tournament, the top four teams all had a mathematical chance of winning the series but the winner was always likely to come from one of the two table topping teams, the Reds and Living Legends.
The Grand finale was set up with both teams avoiding each other in the Semi Finals and then overcoming their opponents in the semi finals to meet in what was their third final of the season.
The superior experience of the Legends was the telling factor and in the end they edged their younger opponents by two tries to one and in so doing won their second title in four years.
The day was a great success with forty teams playing across three divisions. The Open Tournament was won by the New Born Rebels who qualify automatically for next year’s pro series having won 3 open tournaments this season.
The Under fifteen section was won by the Rangers and the Plate was won by the team know as “Daai Span”
The action moves to Diaz Beach in Mossel bay on Saturday and another big turnout is expected with loads to do for the kids and all the decks overlooking the fields.
