The flagship event of the SA Rugby Youth Weeks, will run concurrently with the under-13 Coca-Cola Craven Week and under-16 Coca-Cola Grant Khomo Week will be hosted at Grey College in Bloemfontein from 10th to 14th July 2017.
Similarly to the under-18 and Junior Youth Weeks, the under-16 and under-18 National Girls' Weeks will be hosted at the HT Pelatona Projects Stadium in Welkom from 3rd to 7th July 2017.
The Learners with Special Education Needs (LSEN) Week will be hosted in Durban from 3rd to 6th July 2017, but the specific venue is yet to be announced.
Jurie Roux, SA Rugby CEO said: “The decision to host the under-18 and Junior boys weeks simultaneously at the same venue worked well this year from a spectator and scouting perspective, while the players enjoyed it too.”
“In line with this we opted to align the under-16 and under-18 National Girls Weeks as well next year, which we believe will boost these tournaments. This tweak will result in three consecutive festivals of rugby next season, which will be equally exciting for SA Rugby, the players and spectators alike.
