    Campbell College Rugby Club have returned from their incredible tour to South Africa.  The squad of 70 travelled to Riebeek River, Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Paarl and Durban during the two-week tour, playing 14 matches against some of the best rugby institutions in the country.  Showcasing our superb rugby talent,  the boys took winning and losing in their stride and were incredible ambassadors for the College and for Northern Ireland.

    Days off between matches gave the squad a great opportunity to explore the sights South Africa had to offer. The boys were given the chance to get up close and personal with some of the world’s most dangerous predators - from a close encounter with the ‘Big Five’ on a thrill seeking Game Drive Safari to the heart racing, once in a lifetime, experience of shark diving.  They were treated to a stunning aerial view of the Western Cape on their visit to the most iconic landmark in South Africa - Table Mountain - followed  by a visit to Robben Island. This UNESCO World Heritage Site, steeped in history, allowed the boys to get an understanding and insight into South African history.

    We are extremely proud of how they conducted themselves,  both on and off the pitch. Well done to all involved and thank-you to everyone who made this trip possible.
