2017 Teams

u16 VKB Titans Team


Titans Rugby’s provincial u16 VKB Rugby Week squad will make their debut at the 2017 VKB Rugby Week, which kicks off on Sunday, the 2nd July 2017 in Frankfort, Free State. Titans will face the Rooibokke from the Pretoria in their opener on Monday, with the two more games on the Tuesday and Wednesday.


This will be the first year that a Titans Rugby u16 team is represented at the VKB Rugby Week. Even though this team is easily one of the youngest teams at the tournament with a number of u15 players in the squad, the tag of underdog will be greatly appreciated as this Titans team will be looking to prove themselves. The u16 VKB Rugby Week will be held from Sunday 2nd July to the 5th July in Frankfort, Free State, at Hoerskool Wilgerivier.
