New format for Bozas Cup 2018 tournament
THERE will be an exciting new format for the 2018 edition of the Bozas Cup rugby tournament on Saturday, 3 March at eShowe.
For the first time in the competition's 72- year history there will be a separate tournament for first division clubs running parallel with the traditional third division games.
Eight first and third division teams each will make up the programme which is expected to kick off at 8am after a compulsory team manager meeting at 7.30am.
The response from first division clubs has been positive with Piet Retief, Ballito, Drakensberg and Sentraal having already committed to the tournament.
Clubs need to register and pay their entry fees as the number of teams will be limited and will be accepted on a first come, first paid basis.
After a successful run with Flya Sportswear as main sponsors, Beck Sports has been announced as the new sponsor for 2018.
There will be all the usual happenings next to the field with food stalls and the bar offering ice cold refreshments throughout the day.
