The University of Fort Hare ladies rugby team, the Baby Blues, played their hearts out during a four team maiden Varsity Sports tournament hosted by the University of Johannesburg on 4-5th  October.

The ladies went all the way to the finals only to be beaten by a determined University of Pretoria side by 29-0.  Down but not out. 

The maiden tournament left head coach, Ntyatyambo Mkafu, happy man “we are growing each and every year as the team and we are achieving good results.  But there are also a few boxes that still need be ticked” said a beaming Mkafu.

Despite a very busy academic schedule and other rugby tourneys, “I want to see this team grow and become one of the best feeders to the national team”, he said.

Mkafu leads a team of players who are willing to learn, play the game as it should be played and enjoy themselves while at it.

Congratulations Baby Blues. Nokholeji is behind you all the way.
