Rugby

Rugby was always a great winter code at our school. Since I started coaching at LH we always had great players like Monray Meyer (now deceased), Alvin Davids and Ian Trimmel to name but a few. Both Monray and Alvin represented WP in 1992. Other great players during my time were Brian Brink and Gary Davids who both played first team for the local Retreat RFC, Charlton Brink, Erefaan Nordien and others. During the early nineties Lavender Hill High was always the school to beat. Our greatest opposition was always Steenberg High. I can proudly say that we beat them convincingly in 2015.

Mr. Damon took over the team during the 2010 season and had great success with the team. Players like Brandon Adams and Leon Oliver are some of greats that represented LH. Brandon is now a first team player for Retreat RFC. During the 2015 season we played under the auspices of WP Schools Rugby and participated in the Vuka league Southern Suburbs. We entered only an under nineteen team that played 9 games for the season. Are greatest victory was against Steenberg High at home and our greatest lost was against South Peninsula also home.

We plan to enter an under nineteen team for this year with the possibility of arranging friendlies for the up and coming under 15 and 16`s.
We currently have three sets of jerseys that were sponsored by Legends. For this we are truly grateful. We hope that this year rugby will go from strength to strength. I invite everyone who can assist with coaching, managing a team and most important to administer First Aid at our home games. Please contact the school if you can assist.
