Out of the Closet…. Onto the Rugby Field

Donate rugby gear

  In the aftermath of a fantastic Rugby weekend, South Africa is welling with pride. We’ve seen Heyneke Meyer’s Springboks get off to a flying start, the BabyBoks playing like demons and John Smit proudly represented at his testimonial match. But rugby is not all about tries, physical competition and success; it is also a sport that gives back to fans and less fortunate communities.

Out of the Closet Onto The Rugby Field encourages all current and ex-rugby players to rummage through their closets and to donate their old gear to less fortunate communities.The initiative does fantastic work at schools and clubs across the Western Cape,
