Stephanus Roos Laerskool of Pretoria won the inaugural u/13 rugby Diamantveld Hoërskool's Tournament. Two days of exciting primary school rugby ended in a final between Stephanus Roos from Pretoria and Oranje Noord Laerskool from Upington. Die Poort Laerskool, Voorpos Laerskool and Seodin Laerskool won their respective finals.
Stephanus Roos, however, did not have it all their way in the initial games played on Friday. They had to work hard in their first match against Oranje Noord to win 20-15 and could only manage a draw against Kathu 15-15 in their second match on Friday.
Die Poort, also from Pretoria was Stephanus Roos' opponents in the semifinal on Saturday morning. Stephanus Roos won 15-5 looking a lot more at ease than in their initial games on Friday.
In the Cup Final Stephanus Roos played against Oranje Noord whom they beat 20-15 in their first game on Friday afternoon. The final was by no means an easy victory but Stephanus Roos did look more in control to win this Inaugural Diamantveld Tournament with 15-5.
A brilliant initiative by Diamantveld Hoërskool and hopefully Ruggas.co.za will be invited to the bigger and better tournament in 2020.
