SOME INTERESTING PIRATES HISTORY FACTS

Taken from the History of South African Rugby Football – article written by Clarrie Becker in 1933

“The Pirates Club is one of the pioneers in the establishment of grass grounds in Johannesburg.  To-day the old traditions are being continued and most of the Witwatersrand University students upon leaving link up with The Pirates Club.  The Club has been fortunate in the continued interest of its older members and amongst those responsible for the present maintenance of the old traditions are Messrs. JH Crosby, EM Hind, EH Francis, M Kneen, MC van Buuren,  AC Bleksley, JH Tandy and many others”
