Rustenburg – The Impala Women Rugby team, the Vixens, was eliminated from the North West provincial playoffs after losing 110-0 to Ikageng on Saturday 14 May in Potchefstroom.

“We tried our best but unfortunately we lost to a better team,” fullback Sandra Coetzee told Platinum Weekly. 

This was the second time that the two teams squared up against each other. They played to a 10-10 draw at the Impala Sports grounds on Saturday 2 April 2022. 

Vixens coach Trevor Vissier together with his assistant Peet van Niekerk are at the forefront of reviving women’s rugby at the club. Vissier urged more women from Rustenburg who are interested in playing rugby to join their club. 

“We have about 30 players training with us at the moment but others who would like to be considered are more than welcome to attend our practice,” he said. For more information contact Trevor Vissier on 063 635 9378.
