06 July 2017 - Valke Crowned LSEN Champions 2017 - Day three of the LSEN Week was maybe a disappointment if all the runaway victories are taken into account but the final between the Valke and Boland provided to entertainment.

14 July 2016 - And They All Are Smiling - I saw a tall young man and the Doc standing at the opposite side of the rugby field. They had big smiles on their faces, the young man waved as they turned around and walked away. Happy with what they saw, happy with the way the game was played. The game they loved so much.
10 July 2016 - Sorry, Doc We F^%#@! Up - But Doc I want to invite you to a game at 08h00 tomorrow Doc. Doc the LSEN national team is playing the Blue Valke. Doc this LSEN boytjies is still playing the game your way. Doc they do not play rugby Doc, hulle jol ruggas. Hope to see you there Doc."
