French Female 7s rugby team in South Africa
As part of their training at the High Performance Centre in Pretoria between 16 October and 1 November 2017, the players of the French Female 7s rugby team had the chance to meet with young South African girls at the Rethabile Sports Grounds in Mamelodi on Saturday, 21 October.
The team is preparing for the Sevens Series in Dubai, taking place on 30 November and 1 December 2017, where they will face their South African counterparts.
After their training, the French team played with the girls in small groups, teaching them moves but also singing and dancing! The team’s visit to Pretoria is an opportunity for the professional players to share their skills and knowledge with youngsters. This also reinforces the already strong cultural ties between France and South Africa.
