Westville Boys Clean Up At KES 2010!

Over the Easter weekend Westville Boys' High School travelled up to Johannesburg to take part in the annual KES Easter Rugby Festival. Having come off two very good wins against Kearsney and Northwood, and an extensive pre-season program, the Westville boys were well prepared for the rigours of a tough tournament that would see them play 3 games in just 5 days.

Organised rugby matches in South Africa will not be allowed to take place next year unless the participating coaches and match officials are BokSmart certified.The ruling was one of several decisions ratified by the provincial unions at the SARU Annual General Meeting on Friday.
