Villager 7's results


5 September 2018

Villager 7s: 2018 The Bishops’ 2018 season ended with a superb victory at the 50th occasion of the Villagers Sevens. Bishops has the most successful record of any school at the annual event dating back to 1969, having won 22 of the past 50 tournaments. This included last year’s victory, the first since 2009. The tournament has become very competitive in the last few years with big-name schools like Paarl Gym being included in the draw. Bishops started off emphatically in the final, playing their best sevens of the night and scored two memorable length-of-the-field tries. Paarl Gym fired back quickly with two tries. The side ‘hung tough’ and a try by Luca Liebenberg sealed the game and back-to-back victories for Bishops at the Villager Sevens. The boys can be proud of their attitude, flair and the mental strength they showed to win the tournament. The victory represented everything that Bishops rugby stands for. Congratulations to Daniel Stehlik and William Rose who were named Forward of the Tournament and Player of the Tournament, respectively.
