“Our senior boys are fully focused on taking the leading role and deputizing our new boys into the game.

“We will be ready when the time comes to take the field and we look forward for some great games of rugby,” HammerHeads Phillip Campbell said.

The tournament will kick off on April 9th is the confirmed date for the event to kick off at the DC Park Rugby Field, Henderson.

First Game will be at 1:30pm and the second starts 3:30pm.

The tournament is made possible by the Fletcher Kwaimani Joint Venture Group and the HHH Rugby Club Events team.

Four teams have accepted the challenge and will see who has what it takes to become champion.
