Saturday 5 September 2015: A glorious sunny Saturday greeted the inaugural Schools’ Sevens Quadrangular teams as they played out for Rugby Sevens glory in a series of U14, U15 and U16 round robins hosted by SACS. Plenty of rugby, carnival entertainment and food stalls welcomed the players and supporters from the hosts, Wynberg, Bishops and Rondebosch.

U14 Section

As was to be expected, based on Premier League results over the 2015 season, the U14 matches were evenly matched and hotly contested. In the group stages Wynberg secured a win over Bishops, edged out Rondebosch and a loss to the hosts.

In the semi-final stage Wynberg produced one of the ‘games of the day’ against a strong Bishops side to see themselves through to the final against SACS where the hosts ran out overall winners in a match where Wynberg ran out of energy.

Well done to Wynberg’s Reece Brice and Rethabile Louw for being announced as part of the “U14 Sevens Dream Team” of the day.

U15 Section

Wynberg’s U15 side was a clear favourite through to the final, securing a win over SACS, a narrow victory over Bishops and two wins over Rondebosch in the group and semi-final matches.

But the final against a formidable Bishops team saw the Wynberg side’s hopes dashed in a close encounter.  Some quality rugby from this U15 division that bodes well for the schools’ seasons ahead.

Congratulations to Jarrod Price and Raven Smith for making the “Sevens Dream Team” of the day in the U15 category.

U16 Section

Wynberg’s U16 team had a tough run in the early stages, going down to both Bishops and SACS, but recording a win over Rondebosch.

A loss to SACS in the semi-final saw the Wynberg team calling on true Supera Moras spirit in the 3rd / 4th play-off against Rondebosch to end the day, a match that saw the round robin result reversed in favour of the “Boys from Bosch”.

Well done to Wade Dollman for making the “U16 Sevens Dream Team”.
