After last year’s success,it was only fair that we make this an annual event.Though teams are fewer,the event will definitely be bigger.Unfortunately,Fort Hare could not make it this year due to provincial commitements that most of their players are involved in.No doubt that WSU will be the perfect substitute.UWC and Ikhaya are also newcomers,and their impressive records in the past season has made them the perfect recruits in this festival.
