Blood, sweat and beers. The pretty much sums up the takealot.com Cape Town 10’s rugby tournament which returns to Hamiltons rugby ground in February 2015. The tournament was started in 2009 where 24 teams participated and it grew rapidly to 130 teams in 2014. Next year sees the introduction of a celebrity team put together by headline sponsor takealot.com and yours truly made the cut. Although i have a feeling i’m less celebrity and more target practise for the likes of James Dalton, Bob Skinstad and Butch James who will also be competing. I’m starting to think it wasn’t the brightest decision to accept the invitation to play, but i couldn’t refuse being recruited by Siv Ngesi our intrepid captain and playing alongside some legends.
The rest of the takealot team includes Jack Parow, Rob Van Vuuren, Graeme Richards, Aidan Bennetts, Ryan Botha, Ryan O’ Connor and more. Here’s footage of Siv recruiting some of the team.
Here’s the full team sheet.
