The so-far unbeatable Swallows Rugby Club have flown to the top of the log following their incredible success in the the Eastern Cape Super 14 Rugby Competition. The Mdantsane team looks set to defend their perfect record in the finals match tomorrow, where they
will host PE’s Progress Rugby Football Club at the Buffalo City Municipality Stadium.
Swallows coach Ntando Kebe congratulated his players for good performance and sportsmanship throughout the tournament.
“We had moments where we made mistakes that would almost cost us the match, but the boys have good fighting spirit that helped us win. “Our main focus in the beginning was to reach the final and claim the throne, and I believe the boys will deliver on Saturday,” Kebe
The Super 14 Tournament, formerly the Super 12, added two new teams this year— African Bombers Football Club and Black Eagles. The Bombers more than proved their capabilities,and managed to gain second place in the log before being beaten by Progress
RFC during the semifinals last week.
Black Eagles did try their best, but were unable to climb very far up the logs. “We are a diverse province that prides itself in its sporting abilities.
Our people from different races across the depth and width of our province call rugby their preferred code, therefore we had a duty to bring top-level club rugby to them wherever they are,” said tournament convenor Phumelele Hlathi.
