Florida Park Hosts Sevens IPT

by | Oct 19, 2006

The 2006 Amateur Inter-Provincial Sevens Tournament is scheduled to take place this coming weekend at Florida Park Stadium, Ravensmead in Cape Town.

The two day tournament will be held on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 October, marking the first time that SARU will host the women’s and men’s tournaments at the same time and venue.

Mahlubi Puzi, Manager: Development of the Game at SARU; said Florida Park is ideally suited for such a pioneering effort.

"The people of the surrounding areas of Florida Park love their rugby, and I am confident that they will give us good support.

“The Provincial Sevens Tournament is fundamental to SARU’s approach to increase the level of skill at base level,” said Puzi.

"One needs not to look much further than the brilliant impact the Springbok Sevens players made in the Absa Currie Cup competition,” explained Puzi, “To understand the value of sevens-participation.”

A total of 16 teams in both categories will fight it out for the honour of the best provincial sevens team for this year.

Kick-off time for the first matches on Saturday is 09:30, with the women’s final scheduled for 12:30 on Sunday.

Eastern Province A
