Green Point, Cape Town – Treble Group, in partnership with Club Newlands and Western Province Rugby, managed an evening of song and socialising at the Grand Café & Beach last night, to show appreciation to our sponsors.
We invited the full DHL Stormers team to mingling with the sponsors, partners and WP Rugby exco and management before the event was opened by Supersport presenter and rugby commentator Matthew Pearce.
President of Western Province Rugby Football Union, Thelo Wakefield, delivered a powerful message to the team and guests, conveying a heartfelt thank you to all the sponsors, which include DHL, Brightrock, Peninsula Beverages, Deep Heat, The Entertainer, SAB, Oude Molen, Postnet, Cell C and Tsogo Sun.
Coach Robbie Fleck, affectionately known as ‘Fleckie,’ then took the stage to give the audience a season overview, where he highlighted the importance of giving the younger players in the squad more game time during Super Rugby. The coach also talked the crowd through how far the team has come and his vision for the 2017 squad.
The Q&A session that followed with flanker Siya Kolisi, wing Damian De Allende and lock Eben Etzbeth highlighted each player’s spirit, ability and support of each other as teammates, the latter sentiments emphasized by Kolisi when he expressed how important it is for him to provide support to his teammates on the field.
Treble invited local Afro-operatic pop sensations Gugulethu Tenors, who wowed audiences with their impressive vocals and energetic renditions of South African classics like ‘Pata Pata,’ ‘The Click Song,’ ‘Meadowlands’ and the ever patriotic ‘Nkosi Sikelele Afrika.’ We appointed the catering team at the Grand to present an excellent feast and first-rate service to our valued guests.
The vibe carried on until late into the night with the players, management and sponsors consorting on the sand under the stars celebrating their alignment and the 2017 season going forward.
Treble would like to extend our sincere thanks to the world-class sponsors and partners with whom we have the honour to work. We look forward to activating with you in 2017!
