Angelo Pamplin was named as the u/19 most valuable player.

De Duine I defeated De Duine II by 35-0 and the Invitational team defeated Flamingo 28-0 in the semi-final round.

Two Dream Teams were also selected from both age groups after the tournament concluded.

The Dream Team members for the u/15 age group are Paulus Haipinge, Leandro Engelbrecht, D’anvaro Isaacs, Carlos de Klerk, Robert Simbo and Tyson Nawases.

The Dream Team members for the u/19 group are Moses Haikongo, Benito Sinden, Zagary Coleman, Elrico Mouton, Josh Visagie and Charlton Mouton.

The organiser and coach Daniel Bok thanked the players, coaches and match officials who volunteered their expertise to make the event possible and a success.

“We all had great fun and would like to organise a similar tournament in the foreseeable future. It’s wonderful for the players to compete and preparation for next year’s league.”

Bok said it was a great experience for all involved and the excitement experienced prior and during the event was phenomenal.

“It’s about the players enjoying themselves and I hope the numbers will grow. We still have to work on the fitness levels. The coaches basically had two weeks to prepare their players for this tournament.”
