This weekend is no different with home rugby on Friday night and busses going to Ellis Park on Saturday for the Promotion/Relegation Game. The money was not won at the Club Draw so next month will be up to R1000.00

PIRATES RUGBY NEWS
Pirates Rugby had a fairly hard day against UJ last Friday. The 3rd Team did us very proud and beat UJ to book themselves a spot in the Semi-Final of the Cross Border Semi Finals. The 1st and 2nd sides did so well against the students but were just pipped at the post.
The Rugby Club plays their last game of the Season this weekend. The 2nds, 3rds, U21’s and U19’s will be playing at home against Pretoria Police on Friday 2nd August.
The 1st Team are playing at Ellis Park in the Curtain Raiser to the Lions vs Kings game. Kick off for this game is at 13h00.
Good luck to all the teams.
