Shebeen Boys do it for the good

17 September 2007

With a name like Shebeen Boys, a group of UCT students could easily be mistaken for a bunch of tipplers, and not a rugby team.

In fact, the students not only featured in the internal rugby league for the past five years, but have also raised money - digging into their pockets - for the Chris Burger-Petro Jackson Fund, which raises awareness of debilitating injuries suffered in rugby, and supports injured players.

This year Shebeen Boys raised R1 700 towards the fund.

Club chairman Gary Fouche said: "We believe in the spirit of the game, and would be devastated if any one of our players was unable to play rugby because of injury.

"Hopefully we can pledge a little more next year, as we believe it's a worthy cause and they need all the help they can get."
