Date Released: Thu, 22 August 2013 14:52 +0200

A USSA delegation of Mr Quinton Van Rooyen and Mr Richard Janse van Rensburg, arrived at Rhodes today, Thursday 22 August 2013, for site inspection and they were blown away with what they saw. After a brief meeting with Rhodes Sport’s Mandla, Siyabulela, and Melissa; the two were taken on a tour of facilities including residences, and they were very impressed with all facilities.

“This tournament will help in many ways in rebuilding our rugby on campus in that whatever equipment is used during the tournament will be left behind for use by our rugby club. It will also provide alternative to the regular festival programs in that people will now have an option of watching sport” Said Rhodes Head of Sport, Mandla Gagayi.

The next step will now be to set up a Local Organizing Committee so that implementation of all plans can start as early as possible.
