Sport en­thu­si­asts were kept en­ter­tained dur­ing the King Wil­liam’s Town sub-union Top 8 rugby com­pe­ti­tion played at the Vic­to­ria Grounds in King Wil­liam’s Town re­cently.

Spes Bona from Mdingi emerged cham­pi­ons after their hard-fought 15-12 vic­tory against Blue Jet from Nde­vana in a thrilling fi­nale which had the crowd on their feet right up to the fi­nal whis­tle. Spes Bona dom­i­nated Zwelit­sha-based Black Lion 27-14 in the quar­ter­fi­nals while a tough match against Ju­bisa Broth­ers saw them achieve a nail-bit­ing 20-19 vic­tory in the semi­fi­nals.

Blue Jet handed Balasi Tigers a 34-7 rugby les­son in their quar­ter­fi­nal fol­lowed by a 20-7 win against Non­campa All Blacks in the semis.

King Wil­liam’s Town sub-union pres­i­dent Sa­belo said: “The grounds were never packed like this be­fore. People are hun­gry for rugby and I be­lieve that we will attract sup­port­ers again if clubs con­tinue to play this kind of qual­ity rugby”.
