Springbok Women’s coach Stanley Raubenheimer was delighted on Saturday as his charges booked their place in the 2021 Women’s Rugby World Cup in New Zealand with a 39-0 victory against Kenya in the deciding match of the qualifiers at the Bosman Stadium in Brakpan.
The win marked a clean sweep for the Springbok Women in the competition and wrapped up a full-house of points from their three matches following 89-5 and 73-0 victories against Uganda and Madagascar earlier in the tournament.
The Springbok Women ran Kenya ragged early on, which saw them earn their fourth try early in the second quarter and take a 24-0 lead at the break, and they built on this is in a competitive second stanza in which they added three more tries to their tally for the 39-0 win.
In the other match, Madagascar and Uganda played to 15-15 draw in a gripping encounter, in which both teams ran hard on attack and defended with intent.
STATEMENT BY MAYORAL COMMITTEE MEMBER FOR COMMUNITY SERVICES AND HEALTH, COUNCILLOR ZAHID BADROODIEN
Barely two months into the new financial year, the City of Cape Town’s Community Services and Health Directorate is already faced with fresh challenges around vandalism and theft at community facilities.
In one of the latest incidents at the Mayenzeke Clinic in Khayelitsha on Tuesday 6 August 2019, staff arrived at work to find that the facility had been burgled.
After breaking-in, the suspects proceeded to break down doors to 10 rooms in the clinic, cut padlocks on drawers and cupboards, broke the glass window in the reception area and pulled down the shelving, leaving patient folders in complete disarray.
Among the items stolen were computers, an ECG machine and nutritional products.
STATEMENT BY THE CITY’S MAYORAL COMMITTEE MEMBER FOR HUMAN SETTLEMENTS, COUNCILLOR MALUSI BOOI
Earlier this week, the Planning Appeals Advisory Committee supported a decision by the Municipal Planning Tribunal to approve the rezoning application for the Salt River Market site after dismissing the two appeals that were lodged. This allows for a mixed-use development on the site and will include 216 social housing units in addition to business and retail space. Read more below:
Today, 18 August 2019, I am standing on the site where the development will take place as a tangible demonstration of the commitment by the City of Cape Town’s administrative and political leadership to help drive the development of more affordable and social housing opportunities in Cape Town’s urban centres.
Spatial development approval and then the drawing up and approval of buildings plans are the next steps. These processes happen in parallel and include the detailed design of the development, funding applications, the process to release the land and the procurement of the contractor, among others.
The application for the rezoning of the site was approved by the Municipal Planning Tribunal in April 2019. The appeals period expired in June 2019. Two appeals were lodged. The appeals report was referred to the Planning Appeals Advisory Committee for a decision and the appeals were rejected on 13 August 2019 on the basis of not being relevant to the zoning aspects.
South African rugby players – men and women, schoolboys and adults – were congratulated for Saturday’s national team hat-trick by Mr Mark Alexander, president of SA Rugby, on Sunday.
The Springboks overcame Argentina, 24-18; the Springbok Women defeated Kenya, 39-0; and the SA Schools team beat England U18, 33-26.
“Saturday was a very satisfactory day for South African rugby,” said Mr Alexander. “We had national teams in action in Pretoria, Brakpan and Wellington – all of them in important matches and all of them came through.
“I’d like to congratulate our men and women players and our schoolboys on their successes. It’s not often that we have three national teams playing on the same day and to have them all victorious is cause for some pride.
“In particular I’d like to congratulate the Springbok Women on their qualification for the 2021 Women’s Rugby World Cup.”

The Springbok training squad of 36 players assembled in Bloemfontein on Sunday for a four-day Rugby World Cup camp in Bloemfontein as part of the Boks’ preparations for the global tournament which starts next month in Japan.

The camp is designed to refocus the group on the Rugby World Cup campaign. The announcement of the 31-man squad takes place on Monday, 26 August, at 15h00 in Johannesburg.
Apart from a few team building exercises, the Springbok coaches and conditioning staff will put the training squad through some field sessions and a series of technical activities as the Boks continue to refine their plan for Japan.

Ulster looseforward Marcell Coetzee, who went off early against the Pumas with a head knock and ankle injury, did not travel to Bloemfontein.
