Richard Thompson and Michael Kleinhans were fortunate enough to be selected to represent the Buffalo’s Invitation Squad at the Aldo Milani Rovigo Rugby Tournament in Italy, from 25 April to 2 May 2017. The tour exposed the boys to playing rugby in an international environment, as well as teaching them new skills and techniques. “This tour is so much more than just about winning rugby games”, agreed both coaches: Jason Barrish and Shaun de Witt.
They had 3 wins, 1 draw and a loss. They were awarded the trophy for the best disciplined team at the tournament.
