Grootfontein won the 2019 edition of the Day of Dolphin tournament in Swakopmund earlier today.

They defeated Rehoboth 14-0 in the final and pocketed N$10 000 and a floating trophy. Grootfontein captain and openside flanker Wikus Jakobs scored two tries and outside centre Raymond Van Syl added both conversions for the victory. Jakobs was also named player of the tournament.

The runners-up Rehoboth earned N$60 000 for their efforts.

Walvis Bay finished at the top of Group 1. Rehoboth won Group 2. Saint Lou won Group 3.

The eventual champions earned their spot in the semi-finals as best losers (10 points) of all the teams that finished in second place from the 3 groups.

The defending champions Unam Spartans finished second in Group 2 with 7 points.

Grootfontein defeated Saint Lou 7-6 and Rehoboth defeated Walvis Bay 4-3 with penalty kicks after extra time in the semi-finals. The two sides (Rehoboth and Walvis Bay) were level on 7 points each and could not break the deadlock after full and extra time.

Okahandja Huskies and Walvis Bay Blue Roses played to a 5 all draw in the ladies section of the tournament. Captain Merilees Govender scored a try for the Roses and Roberta Fabia touched down for the Huskies.

Dolphin Rugby Club chairperson Sylvia Winnaar congratulated the newly crowned champions. She also thanked the Namibian Rugby Union referees for officiating the games and all the participating teams for showing up and competing in a good and competitive spirit.

Twelve male teams and two female teams competed in the tournament which produced 24 (including the final) action packed matches.
