  1. @Maroon: Stem saam.Daar gaan gesonde kompetisie wees in meeste posisies. Ek sien egter nie n sterk gebalanseerde agsteman nie? Adriaan van der Bank het my baie beindruk tydens Cravenweek. Bitter baie diepte by slotte en flanke. Dan is daar ook nog SA skole spelers nog op skool volgende jaar wat moontlik later in die seisoen ook speelkans gaan kry.

  2. Jip!! I also agree that this is a powerful line-up of players. I also know of other players at the WP Academy in Tokai that will challenge for places in the WP team.
    The Bulls and Lions have also done some exellent recruiting and I know that the Cheetahs, in spite of their budget restraints, will be highly competitive, with some clever contracting.
    The Leopards always manage to fight way above their weight class and the Sharks, who is keeping their cards close to their chests, have secured the services of some quality players from amongst others, Paul Roos and Paarl Gim. The Kings, who deservedly won the title this year, is an unknown factor for me at this stage, although their Craven week team did well to reach the final this year. I am unsure of the players of that team that will be available in 2016, but everyone knows that star flyhalf Kirvin Bosch have joined the Sharks.
    This will ensure that the U/19 tournament will be fiercely competive in 2016.
    I expect that the forward battles will be hotly contested, but do feel that WP,s pace and flair amongst their backs, may proof to be the difference at the end.

  3. Dit is ‘n baie sterk groep. Sal Annandale spesifiek dophou. Het sy rugby gevolg van laerskooldae af, maar ek verstaan nie mooi hoe hy die groep maak nie. Het verseker die fisiese attribute, maar het nie hond haaraf gemaak by GCB, Helpies of PRG nie….maar sterkte aan hom om die kop reg te kry.

  4. Sjoe manne!! Die WP gaan beslis vanjaar n o/19 bulspan in die veld stoot.

    Last night I watched a warm up match between a local Stellenbosch koshuis team and the 2016 WP Institude intake. This excluded the young men from the WP Academy in Tokai. What was clear as daylight, was the fact that Province has an abundance of quality players from which they can select. The competition to make the starting team, and even the reserves, will be fierce.

    A number of players , including quite a few SA Schools players, did not take part due to some niggles. However, the young men on the park did not do their reputations any harm with a clinical performance. The conditioning of the players seems to be 1st. class.

    Players, who according to me, made a strong claim, include the following:
    Ricky Nwagbara [no.1 -Jeppie], David Meihuizen [lock- Paarl Boishaai], Noma Xaba [flank- Glenwood], Thomas Meyer [flank- Monnas],Zain Davids [no.8- Rondebosch],Jordan Chiat[ flyhalf- SACS], Cornel Smit [centre- Bishops] and Nico Leonard [wing- Paul Roos].

    Soos reeds genoem, was verskeie spelers nie gister in aksie nie. Dit sluit in die SA Skole spelers, soos wat ek kon sien ,Carlo Sadie [stut- Bellville], Ruben de Villiers [slot- Paarl Boishaai], Johan Visser [flank- Paarl Gim], Kobus Wiese [ flank- Upington],Jondre Williams[ skrumskakel- Boland Landbou] en miskien nog ander wat ek mis gekyk het.

    Ek verwag dat hierdie WP span n groot aanspraakmaker gaan wees in die o/19 Curriebeker kompetisie. Die Bulle sal volgens my hul sterkste opposisie wees, terwyl die Leeus ook nie te versmaai is nie. Maar soos reeds al bewys is, kan spanne soos die Cheetahs en die Luiperds nooit onderskat word nie, en dit is ook hoog tyd dat die Sharks hul tande wys.

    As ek egter moet geld opsit, is die WP my ‘banker’.

  5. @Speartackle: Spies! Daar is 6 Boishaai manne Leeus toe, terwyl 4, van wie 2 gereelde 1ste span spelers was, by die WP geteken het. Sommige van die Leeus manne wou ook studeer terwyl hul rugby speel. Dan het Rudolf Straeuli en Bart Schoeman ook uitstekend gewerf onder die jong manne. Een speler is Luiperds toe en die kaptein van laasjaar was reeds onder 19 en is nou n student by Maties. Die res van die span is vanjaar in matriek.

    Daar is dus 5 spelers wat verlede jaar gereeld 1ste. span gespeel het oor in die 2016 Boishaai span. Dit sluit in die SA Skole spelers Khanya Nkusane (no.8), Salmaan Moerat (slot)en Manny Rass (senter). Dan is daar nog n hele paar wat ook heelwat speelkans gekry het verlede jaar.

    Dit klink alles belowend, maar soos ons almal weet, tel name op papier niks tussen die 4 witlyne nie. Was al te veel keer teleurgestel om te vinnig te begin groot bek maak. So ons sal maar eers wag en kyk, voordat ek probeer wintie klink :wink: .

  6. @Speartackle: Elester Becker is sy naam. Die seun het n baie ernstige kop besering gehad. Ek weet dat die Leeus ook op een stadium in hom belang gestel het, maar vermoed dat hy nie meer mag speel nie. Die span het hom egter tot aan die einde laat deel voel van hulle en sy gemoed was baie goed. Ek weet hy is vanaf Namibie, maar weet ongelukkig nie of hy terug is soontoe nie. Baie oulike jong man, met sy skalkse glimlag.

  7. @BoishaaiPa: Stem saam met jou. Het

    egter gehoor dat hulle nie naastenby dieselfde gehalte talent het as verlede

    jaar nie.Hul ster speler , Curvin Bosch, is mos ook Sharks toe soos jy weet.

    Nietemin, jy is reg. Hul Cravenweek span was weer verlede jaar betrokke

    by die eindstryd, en ja, Robbie Kempson doen uitstekende werk

    met die jong manne.

  8. @Kattes-Strofes: maar dan gaan BH mos ‘n m…se pak forwards he. Kan nie dink dat verlede jaar se o16 agtsteman en GKhomo kaptein nie ook in die mix is nie. Kerrel staan glo 1.93 in sy sokkies.

  9. @BrotherBear: Ek weet rerig nie wie op die stadium die uitverkorenes is nie. Hoor net dat daar op n paar posisies kwaai kompetisie gaan wees o.a. die losmanne. Die no.8 van wie jy praat is Francke Horn. Sy pa, Francois, het voorheen vir Boland heelagter gespeel.

    Daar word blykbaar volgende week proewe gehou. Maar soos reeds gese.Kom ons wag en kyk eers voordat mens geraas maak.
