The proud members of the Coastal Links Langebaan Rugby Team that took part in this year’s Fishers’ Tournament in Laaiplek on the West Coast.
Norton Dowries, convenor of the Coastal Links Langebaan Team, and vice chairperson of the local Langebaan branch, is proud of the achievement of the local branch to have fielded a team in the tournament.
“This was the 29th Fisher Tournament, and the first time that a Coastal Links team took part. Due to our inexperience in the tournament, we lost our first two games on the Friday evening, but, we were able to beat the firm favourites, the I&J team on the Saturday,” said Dowries.
He said that was also their last game of the tournament, and that they will come back again next year, and maybe Coastal Links will be able to field teams in other sporting codes also.
“We had a lot of support and our gear and equipment was sponsored, and the Coastal Links and Masifundise logos and names were proudly displayed on our gear and caps that we had especially made for the tournament.”
