2017 Teams

u13 VKB Titans Team


Titans Rugby’s provincial u13 VKB Rugby Week squad has a quiet sense of confidence about themselves. Looking ahead to the VKB Rugby Week, which kicks off on Thursday 29th of June 2017 in Frankfort, Free State. Titans will face the Freestate Platteland team in their opening fixture, with the two more games on the Friday and Saturday.


Last year’s u13 Titans Team reached the final and placed secondly in a very close final game between themselves and neighboring rivals, the Western Cubs. This year however, the Titans faithful will be pleased to know that the squad is not only more balanced, but have all key players available, including four who played in last year’s tournament. Hence the experience and skill in the team is at all time high. The u13 VKB Rugby Week will be held from Thursday 29th June to the 1st July in Frankfort, Free State, at Hoerskool Wilgerivier.
