The Wasps Rugby Club was a hive of excitement recently when three Emirates Lions Super Rugby stars arrived to pay the club a visit.
Coach Johan Ackermann was accompanied by two of his star players, Franco Mostert and Ruan Ackermann.
Coach Ackermann motivated the young Wasps players with a pre-season chat and gave all players the opportunity to meet their heroes and pose for photos.
The Wasps handed over a Wasps rugby ball and honorary member caps.
Wasps Rugby Club is a club focused on player development and caters for age groups from U/7 through to U/18.
The club which was founded in 2011 has grown year on year and currently boasts 240 active rugby players, two fully lit rugby fields, a third junior field, an electronic scoreboard and a fully interactive mobile phone app.
