In 2006, fresh out of school, looking for some Varsity good times a bunch of friends put together a side for the UCT internal league. older guys from school sparked the idea. We named ourselves the Purple Cobras. We got the name from the movie Dodgeball.
We at the Cobras are very intent on having a good time. One might say we play the rugby just for the parties afterwards. But we do play some good rugby at times. In our first year we were knocked out in the semis on a kick- out, in our second year we lost in the final and last year we won the Cup baby. Champions.
Basically we enjoy coming out on Wednesday night, playing some quality rugby and then having a jam just to tie it all together.
Everybody is welcome for a beer after the game, and it will be a special occasion as this fixture falls on Cobras hooker Ryann Dean's birthday, i'm sure he is looking forward to it as much as we are...
. Afterparty at Bang Bang, guestlist for all Cobras and friends...
The Cobras website will be back up and running shortly...

As you can see we play our fixture which was meant to be played on the first Wednesday of the semester. The following week is a massive fixture vs. Barbarians who we haven't played against since our Semi-final in 2006, looks set to be a cracker. We have been placed in a pool with Barbarians, Panthers and Clarendon, this isn't an easy pool so one should begin to understand the importance of Round 2 of the competition, as the more games won, the easier route it is to the playoff's.
