Good Afternoon

The Sportsman’s Lunch planned for Friday 8th February has been postponed to Friday 1st March.  Ken Rutherford’s son has been selected for the New Zealand Cricket side and Ruds has gone over to watch him – a fairly good excuse not to talk.  Congrats Ruds what a wonderful honour for you.

Pirates is however hosting another lunch in aid of a Charity called FreeMe.  The lunch is on Friday 15th February and is R250.00 a head.  The guest speakers for this lunch are Ex Springbok Warren Brosnihan and Hugh Bladen with Supersports Elma Maspero as the MC.  This is a fundraising event for a very worthy cause so please support it if you can.  To reserve your seat or table of 8 please contact Adele Vincent on   For more information on what this charity is about please vist their website
