The ground-breaking Capricorn Group International Junior Sevens Rugby Tournament took place at the Windhoek Gymnasium Private School last week. 

The tournament saw teams from Namibia; South Africa; Botswana; Zambia and Zimbabwe taking each other on.  

"The game of sevens is known for its fast-pace with a great spirit from the spectators. This event was characterised by a huge success and an excellent experience, that show-cased exhilarating junior sevens rugby talent which will hopefully continue to be a highlight on the Namibian and international sporting calendars," the managing director of Capricorn Thinus Prinsloo has told The Villager.  

He added, “This includes the development of youth for the future of the countries in which we operate, and sport is a powerful mechanism to achieve this. Although our group’s beginnings are deeply rooted in Namibia, we are a regional financial services player, specifically in Botswana and Zambia."

He added that all teams have shown maturity and did perform exceptional well during the tournament which indicates that the players were very serious about taking home medallions to their respective countries.
