Our base for the week, the Devonshire hotel, once THE party spot in Jozi, had been the subject of much debate and discussion, and boy did it live up to it.

UCT RFC successfully hosted our AGM for 2018 on 24th September (Heritage Day) in conjunction with our 'Shisa Nyama’ evening (meaning “burn meat” in Zulu) as part of celebrating our culture and heritage with our community.
UCT RFC is incredibly excited to have recently launched the UCT RFC School of Leadership Programme. The objective of the course is to marry leadership required on the field, off the field, in our board rooms and then into the workplace. In addition, the programme also has a tier in place which aligns with participants’ present levels of involvement in the Club.
