BREAKING NEWS – ONRUS BEACH

Due to a series of unseasonal rains, the Onrus River Beach has been halved of its usual size. The Overstrand Municipality in conjuction with the local ward councilor have agreed to allow us to still stage the event, however we will only be allowed to play on one field.

This means that the event on the 16th of December in Onrus will be staged as one knockout tournament involving the Pro Teams as well as teams from the general public will take place.

There will be a maximum of 32 teams permitted to play and entries will be on a strictly first come first served basis on the day. Please ensure that you arrive early to avoid disappointment.

To make things as fair as possible, there will be prizes given to the 3 top finishers outside of the Pro Teams. Standard Open Tournament rules will apply

Unfortunately there will not be a kids section at the Onrus leg of the series.

The Strand event goes along as planned and takes place on Saturday the 14th of December!

It is with great sadness that we have learned of the sudden and shock passing of Andre “Ammo” Centry…

Andre was a massive talent and was literally coming in to his own as a Touch player and all round person. His life has tragically been cut short and our sympathy and prayers go out to the Centry family at this sad time.

He played his touch in the Strand initially for the New Borne Rebels. He played for the Score Energy Warriors in 2010 and 2011 and returned to his home team of the New Born Rebels last year. Andre was this year picked to play in the Nomad Warriors team and big things were expected of him. The Touch world has been robbed of an enormous talent.

He died of a suspected heart attack at his home on Saturday. Funeral details will be forwarded as soon as they come available for anyone wishing to pay their respects…

Incredible day at the Strand!!!!

44 Teams registered to play at the first event of the All Gold Hot Summer of Touch at Strand Beach on Saturday. The weather was perfect and the huge crowd was not disappointed with the action on the beach!

With the Strand leg not having official “Pro Series” status, there was a great opportunity for some of the upcoming teams in the Touch Rugby community to test their skills against the best players in the game. The skill levels are so high across the board and this was evident with 3 of the Pro teams who entered the competition not making it to the Semi Finals.

A most notable result was the Drifters from Maccassar knocking out the reigning 3 times Strand Champions Living Legends in the quarter finals.

The day was ultimately won by the Amazing Galaxy Warriors who defeated the Reds in the final by two tries to nil. The Plate was won by the Suicide Monkeys and the Under 15 competition was won by the New Born Squirels who beat the Tribal Kingz Touchies in the final.

The series moves to Onrus on Monday. Please note there will not be any Under 15 section
