Touch Rugby Youth World Cup Malaysia

Touch Rugby Youth World Cup Malaysia

Personal message

My name is Savannah Bennett and I started playing Touch Rugby in 2014 and fell in love with the sport. That year, at the age of 15, I made the Northern Gauteng provincial team and joined the squad at the Inter Provincial Touch (IPT) Tournament in Durban.

Every year since then I have played provincially for Northern Gauteng and I also played for my school where I became team captain and player of the year.  

In 2017 Northern Gauteng didn’t have an official U/19 team so the Western Cape Touch Association invited me to play for their junior team at the Inter Provincial Tournament (IPT) in the Cape. It was at this IPT that I was chosen for the preliminary Youth World Cup squad for 2018 and in the December of 2017 it was confirmed that I had made it into the final team representing South Africa in Malaysia in August 2018.

Touch Rugby is a fast growing sport in South Africa and is well established in countries such as New Zealand, Australia, England, France and more.  Unfortunately it is a self-funded sport in South Africa and if I don’t manage to raise the funds needed, I will not be able to attend the Junior World Cup this year.

As we are fast running out of time, please help me realise my dream to represent South Africa at the Junior World Cup by donating here.
