Highlanders Rugby Football Club chairman Thulani Tabulawa thanked the old boys for their.

The associations have chapters in the UK and South Africa. He added that the chapters were formed to plough back into the team.

"UK chapter raised money and bought a kit for the team. They also sourced food hampers after noticing that most of the players depend on parents, while others come from single parents' home. This was done to help the players who have been affected by Covid-19," said Tabulawa.
