THE Bor­der un­der-12 rugby team re­cently re­turned from par­tic­i­pat­ing at this year's Coastal Pro­vin­cial U12 Tour­na­ment in Rivers­dale. Even though the team ded not come out vic­to­rius, they played four games and man­aged to beat West­ern Prov­ince (WP). "This was our big­gest game be­cause WP have not been beaten in 10 years," Bor­der coach Lwazi Zangqa said. Zangqa said they only had three weeks to pre­pare for the tour­na­ment while other teams had three months. "Hav­ing won one game out of four is not bad. Our game with WP has to be one of our big­gest games and I am proud of the boys," he said. The Bor­der boys came from Sel­borne Col­lege, Hud­son Park Pri­mary, Stir­ling Pri­mary, Queens Col­lege and Dale Col­lege. "Going into the game, the boys were ner­vous but hav­ing won that one game was very spe­cial for them and it is some­thing we are going to treasure in our hearts for­ever. I was glad to have been part of that," Zangqa said. One of the par­ents, Craig Ma­ree, said it was an hon­our for the boys to have par­tic­i­pated in the tour­na­ment. "They learnt a lot and these lessons will pre­pare them for Craven Week next year."
