Finally the long awaited North West Provincial Derby between Hartbeespoort’s new local community-based rugby club, The Wolverines and the Rustenburg Impala Rugby Club will take place at home in Hartbeespoort at the Millstream River Club this Saturday, 21 August.
Kick-off times are 14:40 for the 2nd team and 16:00 for the 1st team. The Wolverine players have done well so far and are in the running for a semi-final position. However, the Rustenburg players are former national club rugby champions and although the club has fallen on hard times of late, it is in a rebuilding phase and is the current log leader. During a friendly match earlier this year the Impala team beat The Wolverines. With a host of local talent joining the club and with five matches under the belt, The Wolverines won’t be so easy to beat this weekend.
The team won against Bronkhorstspruit last weekend and the teams are looking forward to this week’s challenge. Support The Wolverines this weekend. The club is based at Millstream near Skeerpoort. The restaurant will be open and live coverage of the Springboks vs Argentina is available. Contact 082 4973849 for more info.
