The Assupol trophy schools rugby tournament, formerly known as the Enrista Cup tournament, to be hosted at Loftus Versfeld.

30 June 2017 Assupol

The Assupol Cup school rugby tournament, formerly known as the Enrista Cup tournament, will be hosted at Loftus Versfeld for the fourth consecutive year starting this Saturday, 1 July.

Success stories of late developers that now excel on the rugby field, increase annually due to this tournament.  What is commendable, is that the rugby players participating in the Assupol Cup never partook in tournaments like the Craven Week, Grant Khomo Week or National Academy Week.  All these players needed, was a chance to prove that they had talent, and they have.

The Blue Bulls is possibly the only rugby union in the country that has officially created an extra platform for boys that have previously been overlooked by the official provincial schools selection committee, to get the opportunity to impress people looking for new talent. This tournament also serves as an ideal feeding ground for local clubs.  Quite a number of players have, since the inception of the tournament in 2014, gotten the opportunity to play club rugby after school, while the standard of local club rugby has also significantly improved on u.20, u.21 and senior level, since the Enrista trophy tournament was presented for the first time three years ago. 

The former sponsor withdrew due to technical reasons, but Assupol immediately agreed to sponsor this popular tournament.  “Assupol is passionate about grass root sport development’’ said Mr. Gert Wessels, Sales Executive of Assupol.  The tournament will be known as the Assupol Cup – not to be confused with the Assupol Club series, which is another senior club tournament that will be presented early in the season for all Noord Vaal Rugby unions. 

Quick Polls


In terms of vicarious liability, damages should not be borne by companies in all conditions, but only in those circumstances which it is reasonable for them to do so. Do you agree?


Yes, damages should only be borne by companies in those circumstances which it is reasonable for them to do so.
No. If there is a sufficiently close link between the employee’s acts and the purposes and business of the employer, the employer should be held liable for delicts committed by their employees.
As long as the employee is acting within the course and scope of his or her duty… the employer will be held liable.
