articles.comments (10)

The last round of games of the short Second Round of the Carlton Cup and Shield Competitions were affected by top players resting, games won by default and games ending earlier, so everybody wll be looking forward to this coming Saturday's finals in all the leagues, writes Johanna de Vos.

This include the Carlton Cup, Carlton Shield, First League and President’s League each with their own different categories 1st League, 2nd League, 3rd League, u.21 League, u.19 League.

The Carlton Cup Final will be the main attraction between UP-Tuks (2013 winners) and Pretoria Bobbies (2012 winners). Carlton Shield Final will be between Centurion (2014 Blue Bulls Community Cup representative) and Harlequins.

All the games will be played at Loftus Versfeld on the outer fields B, C and D adjoining Lynnwood Road. Entrance is free.

Last year’s Carlton Final result was: UP-Tuks 43 (22), Oostelike Eagles 14 (6).

The story of the origin of the Carlton Cup:
On a shelf, amongst the liquor bottles in a bar in Pretoria, stood a trophy as decoration. The bar was frequented by rugby players. This trophy baffled the players. One day they started asking questions.However the bar attendant did not know it’s origin – where it came from or what it was doing there.
The players then asked if they could have it as a trophy to play for.

The owner, Lezard, agreed – and the trophy was named after the bar “CARLTON”, and thus it was baptized as the Carlton Cup. This was about 1904.
In 1938 Northern Transvaal Rugby broke away from Transvaal Rugby Union and became a rugby entity on it’s own. Since then the clubs in Pretoia played for the Carlton Cup.
Police have won the Cup 32 times ( 27 wins, 5 draws) between 1939 –2012. UP-Tuks have won 23 times (19 wins, 3 draws) between 1960 – 2013.

    Tipies Blou Bul Rugby unie wat die Carltoneindstryd dieselfde tyd hou as die eerste Curiebeker wedstryd van die jaar en dan kan Barend en sy ringkoppe nie verstaan hoekom toeskuoers nie klurugby bywoon nie. Rugby in Bulland sal net regkom as die bestuur wakker word. My familie wou gaan Carlton eindstryd kyk het maar agv die swak beplanning kyk ons nou maar eerder Curiebeker

    Se my hoekom kan manne soos JJ, Vleis, Piet van Zyl ens wat vir hulle unies uitstekend was nou eweskielik nie meer rugby speel nie? Dit se een ding vir my ons coaching staff weet nie wat hulle doen nie.

    Kom Lions trap die klomp dikgat palookas

    Lustelose of bewustelose bulle.
  4. Bulls are playing poor rugby. They are not committed at all. The coaching and management staff have to do a much better job. Its sad to be losing all the time.
  5. gravatar nitronic says:
    Een woord kak.

    Kak kaptein
    Kak spelers
    Kak bestuur
    Kak afrigting span


    Is dit moontlik dat die hele span en ek bedoel elke liew een dalk n been breek en uitsit vir n seisoen of twee?
  6. gravatar Myler7 says:
    Jaag die hele flippen klomp weg, wat n flippen skande. Geen respek vir die blou, flou spelers, useless afrigting span en groter as groot bestuur. Supporters moet nou saam staan en rugby in Pta regruk deu met ons wegbly stem te wys ons dring aan op beter, ons verdien beter en ek daag die slapgat bestuur uit om te antwoord op my opmerkings.

    Ag nee wat my eerste en laaste cc game wat ek gaan kyk,dit was pateties geen passie,aggressie,commitment ag man hulle het f kk l gaan eerder tyd saam my seun spandeer as om weer na die KAK te kyk.

    Versprei asseblief oor die hele land, veral Pretoria vir alle WARE Bulle ondersteuners:

    Ons boikot Loftus totdat die huidige bestuur en afrigtingspan bedank het.

    Voel jammer vir die spelers, maar die bestuur en afrigters moet gaan, die hele klomp.

    As daar nog enige trots in Ludeke oor is, sal hy self bedank en loop. Gee die span vir iemand om met 'n totaal nuwe jongspan oor te begin, dan kan ons die verlore verstaan en geduldig wees.

    Ludeke kan dan ook al sy kinders saamvat - Visser, Ross, Hattingh, Visagie, Werner en Dean,en Xandertjie.
