Black Birds RFC

Lord’s Taverners South Africa have presented some rugby balls to the Black Birds Rugby Club in the Hemel en Aarde Valley. In addition, they also gave the club chairman, Jerome Marthinus, a ball signed by ex-Springbok captain Morne du Plessis. Jerome said that it would take pride of place when they build their clubhouse at their new grounds in Karwyderskraal.

This donation was inspired by Newton Johnson Vineyards
