World Youth Rugby Festival - Nyala XV

Personal message

I am Ruby Spaans. I am fundraising for my son, Ayden Spaans who is a 15-year-old from
Centurion, Pretoria. I would like to give Ayden the opportunity to play the game he loves overseas.

The Nyala U/16 team has invited Ayden Spaans to join them in taking part in 2019 WYRF 15’s in Los Angeles California, from 27/28 December until 6/7 January! The tournament is more than rugby; it is a career opportunity! Rugby is Ayden’s passion, and this opportunity will open doors for him in the future.

Funds need to be raised by the end of November, 2019. The cost for the touring squad is R 35 500 per person. It includes: 
•       Return air ticket JHB/LA or CPT/LA 
•       Your accommodation for 9 nights in the Embassy Suite Hotel
•       9 x Breakfasts
•       9 x Light lunches
•       9 x Dinners 
•       Welcoming function
•       Local transfers to airport, sport stadium and fieldtrips 


The game is growing fast in the US, and the California Tournament promises to be outstanding! The owner of Rhinos Rugby Academy is also a co-owner of the Austin Elite, MLR team, and a shareholder in Major League Rugby, the professional league for rugby that started in the US last year. The tournament will act as a scouting opportunity for MLR teams, as well as US universities and clubs. The tournament is more than rugby; it is a career opportunity! 


*Funds raised will be paid directly to Nyala*
