Hello Fellow Pirates

Come to the Club on Saturday morning and enjoy a Blue Bulls Breakfast Special. The Blue Bulls are playing against Crusaders at 09h35 and the Main Bar will be open serving a wonderful Blue Bulls Breakfast which includes 100g Beef Burger patty, free range eggs on top, 4 strips of bacon, tomato, chips and toast for only R35.00. The Sharks game follows straight after that where they are up against the Reds – Kick off for this game is 11h40 and by then the breakfast is down and
the beers are cold. See you down at the Club for these very important Super 15 games of the Season.
