Hi there Pirates Members and Friends

The week’s fly by – as the old saying going time flies when you having fun and this we certainly do at Pirates.  A very successful fun Wine Tasting was held last night and we look forward to a great weekend of sport and fun this weekend.


The Rugby Boys are starting the 2nd round of the Club Fixtures on Saturday (tomorrow) with a game against Harlequins Pretoria in Pretoria.

Only the 1sts, 2nds and 3rds are playing tomorrow as Harlequins can unfortunately not field an U19 and U21 side.  The games kick off at 13h15 with the 1st team playing at 16h00.

The rest of the Fixtures are as follows:

Saturday 27th July – Pirates vs UJ at Pirates

Friday 2nd August – Pirates vs Pretoria Police at Pirates

These are great fixtures and we look forward to some great support for the boys in these Cross Border Fixtures

The Pirates Ladies will be playing against Jeppe on Sunday 21st July at 3pm at Jeppe. It would be great to get some support for the ladies in this match


I have had a few enquiries about the trees we planted at the club and I am pleased to report that they are doing very well.  Most of the trees were planted around the top field and on the bank of the top field to try and hide the Dump.

Here is a picture of one of the trees doing its best in winter – this tree is over-looking the top field
