  1. @Murrayfield: Ek wil saam met jou stem. Volgende jaar gaan voorwaar interssant wees. Met al die skuiwe en oor-en-weer beskuldigings is daar ‘n paar manne kwaad gemaak.

    Die wenmotief is op baie se agendas, en daar word baie planne gemaak as ek so tussen die lyne lees.

    Dis als goed en wel, al wat ek wil hê is dat al die kinders die sport van hulle keuse met vrymoedig en goeie gesindheid sal kan geniet. Dis immers hulle beurt om deel te neem, te groei as mense en vaardighede aan te leer wat hulle as volwasse mense gaan nodig hê.

    ReplyReply
  2. @Valkie: Daar is ‘n paar “volwassenes” op die blog wat self met daai vaardighede kan doen…

    Ek dink die kinders skaam hulle vir hoe ons soms hier tekere gaan. 8-O

  3. @Valkie: Rugby is slegs ‘n voertuig in die lewe Valkie, ‘n pitstop om jou te laat groei in alle aspekte!!

    maar ego’s van ouers en coaches veroorsaak OORLOG!!

    ReplyReply
  4. @Valkie: Ek dink die wen motief in verskillende vorms is waaroor meeste besprekings gaan op die blog. Stem saam wen is nie alles nie maar dit is waaroor Noordvaal rugby gaan. Wen my kind se span? Wen my kind se skool? Wen my kind sy plek in n span? Wen. Wen. Wen. Niks van naskool of lewe buite rugby of akademiese prestasie nie. Of. Of. Of. So vir volgende jaar kom ons ‘celebrate’ ons wenne. Wees nederig in ons wenne. Aanvaar ons verlore sonder ‘reservations’ en gun elke speler, span en skool sy plekkie in die son want daar is deesdae baie son.

    ReplyReply
  5. @Hooit: Dan ondersteun jy mos eintlik indirek Affies se standpunt van derby rugby…wenmotief is daar maar nie altyd alfa en omega nie. Dink Affies het ‘n “tough draw” met al die wegwedstryde volgende jaar. Ek verwys maar na Affies as Affies en nie Wit Bulle nie, net bang jy raak dalk deurmekaar :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

    ReplyReply
  6. @4×4: Is ‘wetenskaplik’ bewys wie is die oorspronklike Witbulle. Ek sê mos in die Noordvaal is wen alles. Die lewe gaan nie net oor wen nie maar hier doen dit. Ons moet almal net leer hoe om te wen en hoe om te verloor veral in die Noordvaal.

  7. KES Monnas should be at KES next year – the fixture was at Monnas this year. I bloody hope so because Waterkloof on the Monday followed by Monnas on the Saturday – both away – will be tough to say the least!

    I hope Speartackle and Andre T will be in leafy Houghton for the clash – I think KES will take it next year and extend their overall head to head record :twisted: :twisted:

    ReplyReply
  8. @Hooit: Yep stem 100% saam jou. Mens moet net so goed kan verloor as wat mens kan wen, en dis ‘n vaardigheid wat nie baie mense toeval nie.

    Pa moet vir sy seun wys hoe ongelukkig hy is oor die verloor. Kyk dit het ek al verskeie vorms langs die sportveld gesien. Ek dink ons almal het lekker verhale oor die tipe situasie. :mrgreen: Ek was self skuldig daaraan maar gelukkig het ek intussen mooi groot geword en vat ‘n ‘verloor’ soos ‘n man en motiveer die seuntjie om beter te doen en te leer uit die ‘verloor’

    ReplyReply
  9. @Roger: Parktown and Westville is not a regular fixture.They played a one off in 2015 at the Jeppe tournament which Westville won. However KES and Pretoria boys are and yet no fixtures for 2017. (Surprisingly College play home and away against these schools). Maybe KES is hiding because the last 4 times they played Westville has won 3. :lol:

    ReplyReply
  10. @star: that’s what I meant – no Westville or Parktown fixture for KES in 2017? Looks like the KES Westville derby has fallen away as there was no 2016 fixture either. Looks like it has been replaced with a KES College home and away clash. Maybe the travel twice a year is too much – or perhaps Westville are hiding as KES has beaten them 7 of the last 10 :lol: :lol:

    ReplyReply
  11. @Roger: Having watched the Monnas under16’s this year, I highly doubt KES will beat Monnas next year. But you never know…..

    ReplyReply
  12. @Roger: Yes they did. Very controversial end to the game. But Monnas not to be measured on that outcome. I should be there. We will see who buys the 1st round? I think it will be you.

    ReplyReply
  13. @Roger: Eish that is cock on a block stuff….if PJ the Monnas No8 is still there, KES will find it hard to stop him….

    ReplyReply
  14. @Roger: @Alan Morrissey: I think one of the big battles everyone with an interest in that KES vs Monnas match in 2017 will look forward to is the battle between Travis Gordon and PJ Jacobs – two outstanding prospects.

    ReplyReply
  15. @beet: Yep, but as the cliche goes it’s the tight 5 that will win it. Monnas won’t have the same steel they had from Macbeth and co this year, maybe grade 11 guys. They also lack the depth of a KES. Will be interesting. From a Glenwood perspective, it will be interesting if JJ ends up at No8, I hope not. I heard we lost live-wire flank Jonathan O’Neil back to the Vaal…

    ReplyReply
  16. @beet: correct – Gordon was injured most of the season this year. Straight shootout between the two for Lions number 8 if they both stay fit. I see he has just been made head boy as well – as you say – great prospect!

    ReplyReply
  17. @Beet, @Roger, @Allan Morrissey: of the guys you mentioned on loose forward, only Mark Snyman stands out. Many other guys not mentioned have the edge over Botha and Gordon w.r.t. Physicality, speed and reading the game. In this instance Helpies have two more excellent prospects as well as Monnas U16

    ReplyReply
  18. @Roger: wonder who KES, Monnas and Helpies will be playing in the first Lions trial encounter?

    ReplyReply
  19. Helpies good prospects for Lions CW next year at full front row, one lock, no 6, no 7, no 9, no 10, no 12, no 14 and no 15. Will see how things an out as two of these players already green squad and more are contenders for SA schools. Lots of water needs to flow though.

    ReplyReply
  20. WRT to loosies in the WC, Francke Horne, Henco Maartins and Henro Meyer will be worth a watch in 2017

    ReplyReply
  21. @Alan Morrissey: their U16’s very strong group with good prospects. Centres for Cw from young blood, with Jeppe quite strong and one very good Helpie that inexplicably missed out this year. The Helpie did very good service at wing with two very capable experienced centres (gr12) this year.

    ReplyReply
  22. @BrotherBear: Interesting, good to know. I have to be completely honest here, I only started to hear about Helpies about 10 years ago. Is it a new school? Same with Garsies, only heard of them recently…

    ReplyReply
  23. Alan Morrissey: these days all teams are dream teams. Quite interesting that many times a player with heart (but average in other aspects) can make a real difference to a team’s performance. Example is our one lock this year. His fiery play and determination Ave a good tight five that extra grunt.

    ReplyReply
  24. @Alan Morrissey: Helpies converted to an Afrikaans private school a bit more than a decade ago. Before then they were a government school with a boys campus and a girls campus for decades. School experienced some difficult times before converting to private status, attracting excellent staff, very good management and have been growing since. The school attracts scholars in a radius of more than 50km’s with interviews held with All prospectives. Waiting list starts as soon as previous one closes. Presently about 900 scholars, boys and girls. Class sizes less than 20 – academics a primary priority.

    ReplyReply
  25. @Alan Morrissey: Yes, the team has performed well over the years. But many players have not received the kudos they deserve. Surely a team with their track record cannot only rely on 2 or 3 good players. More than 50% of them are really very good, definitely best in province. A lot happens over time, as the kids grow. Will have to see what new season brings. I do know that some of the players have become even better over time whilst size has hindered others ( but not reduced heart).

    ReplyReply
  26. @BrotherBear: Good to hear Academics first and seems a school on the up :-). Small number of boys to pick from but as they are selected you must get the cream apply.

    ReplyReply
  27. @BrotherBear: Helpies played at the Kearsney ERF about 5 years ago. They didn’t have a team to write home about that year but I do remember how they almost beat Shelburne in a very low scoring game. If I remember a Selborne player crossed the line for what should have been a well worked try but lost the ball when tackled from behind.

    ReplyReply
  28. @beet: If PRG plays him at 8, he will make some yards. Not sure about their thinking around the player though, he can be an abrasive 4 as well

    ReplyReply
  29. @Alan Morrissey: @BrotherBear: My opinion is that Kearsney would get max benefit by playing Richardson at 8. But then again I thought KES were wrong to switch Malcolm Marx to hooker for his matric year. It won’t help DR’s chances of making that next step up to SAS if he plays backrow for school and has to adapt overnight to hooker for province, unless KC gives him role of lineout thrower. Back in about 2010 KC did this with Nunes and Collopy.

    ReplyReply
  30. @beet: I agree with you Marx is a concern for me…..under pressure he can’t throw straight….basics skills for an international hooker he should have started playing hooker in grade 7…..Strauss is in decline BUT he still finds his jumpers with ease…..

    ReplyReply
  31. @Muzi: Yeah that Bok 2 jersey is up for grabs now. Lets hope Marx can iron the kinks and make it his own.

    What’s happened to Edgar Marutlulle. He looked good in a weak Kings team last year and then headed up to Pretoria and …?

    ReplyReply
  32. @Muzi: I’ll get burnt here but I said years ago, Marx is a flank but hey what do I know. He should be practicing his throwing more than anything else. Hanging hoops….bang….pinpoint throwing…

    ReplyReply
  33. For Lions Cravenweek next year my prediction. 8-Travis Gordon. 7-PJ Jacobs. 6-Mark Snyman. 5-Cristen Kwagga van Niekerk. This will be if all are in shape and on form. Van Niekerk should also be second in line for 8 and 7. Will have to wait and see who performs next year.

    ReplyReply
  34. @beet: the two players you mention are definitely in the running. Gordon is strongly favored by the CW head coach (Spilhaus) as they have been working together for several years. Hopefully Gordon can shake the injury niggles. Spilhaus, of course, has moved to Jeppe.

    ReplyReply
  35. @beet: Marutlulle looks like he will start at 2 against the Stormers at Newlands..Strauss won’t be ready IMHO after his back OP…..I would make Edgar captain with Handre as V/C wouldn’t that rattle a few feathers in PTA… :mrgreen:

    ReplyReply
  36. @Alan Morrissey: …the lions bandwagon desperately wants Marx to become a hybrid Bismark 2.0 yet he stinks at line outs….when he misses his jumpers they blame the locks :) :mrgreen:

    ReplyReply
  37. @beet, @muzi: Marx’s lineouts a bit of an enigma. Accuracy is easy to correct through practice. No 2 jumper normally easy but on no 4 and 6 the timing is all important as the ball is thrown before the jumper leaves the ground. That only comes through good mutual understanding and strong, calm nerves.

    ReplyReply
  38. @Hooit: should your son not also stand in for the props and no 4 lock? Would improve his chances considerably as he seems to be strong enough. ;-)

    ReplyReply
  39. @Hooit: Mmmm. Your prediction might be close. I do however see a couple of surprises for next year. None of those predictions is a given. The boys you mention was all part of the SARU group which obviously better their chances but but but.
    Lets wait and see. I know of boys that was not in any groups that are working their buts off.
    Would like to see the merit/form player being picked and not the already in group players.
    And for the rest it is not a Monnas vs Helpies thing again. Head coach moved to KES and Jeppe very strong candidates and U/16 last year had great talent. Noordheuwel now also come into play. Far to early to pick a team. :mrgreen:

    ReplyReply
  40. @Riempies: Keagan Glade a shoo in at prop surely? Pity KES and Helpies aren’t playing again next year as KES, Helpies, Monnas and Jeppe will all have very useful sides in 2017 – great for the Lions. Helpies is the only top Lions team KES is not playing

    ReplyReply
  41. @Alan Morrissey: Helpmekaar must be close to 75 years old. It is right opposite Parktown Boys High and Wits in Braamfontein. KES and Helpmekaar played often in the early days as did Helpmekaar and Parktown. Maybe Brother Bear can dig out the results

    ReplyReply
  42. @Roger: Yes I would have loved to see the two sides compete. Maybe someone with connections can organize a pre-match at Ellis for us during the superrugby?!! We did play on Ellis this year against you guys.
    Helpies 96 years old next year 8-O . Modern Helpies as private school since 1993.

    ReplyReply
  43. @Riempies: 96 older than I thought – great school – I stand to be corrected but there aren’t that many Akrikaans Pvt schools in JHB. I know only of Jan Celliers and that is primary only

    ReplyReply
  44. Off subject but I see Keaton Jennings 50 on debut for England – well done – I stand to be corrected but I believe KES has now produced more international cricketers than any other SA school – Grey Bloem of cricket :wink:

    ReplyReply
  45. @Roger: You have a young man their with the surname of Newland-Nell that played as junior with my son. I believe he will be your next Proteas player. Very gifted individual!!

    ReplyReply
  46. @Riempies: Agree with you and feel exactly like you. My son is aiming for the number 7 spot but there are many variables in his way. Not even sure where he will play for Monnas. Just hope everybody gets a fair chance. I also think Helpies have played enough big schools already and will play more big school as I believe players picked from big school playing other big schools do better at Cravenweek. It is much better to prove yourself week after week rathan than in 2/3 trials.

    ReplyReply
  47. @Roger: Can’t comment as I do not know who he is competing with. Only saw 1 game of his against Monnas. Hope I get his name right, Mmusi who was the u16 captain is also a sure bet for the Cravenweek team. Played very well for Lions 7’s team. Not sure in which school he is. Kes or Jeppe?

  48. @Alan Morrissey: :?: I don’t know too much about the (KZN) props coming through. They are definitely not as high profile as this season’s guys. Two that I’m interested in seeing how they progress is Rocky Knox of MHS who I thought was really good this year and Sean Barnes of DHS who was invited to the SARU u17 camp as a prop, which has to in some way suggest that he can make something of that possie. After the rugby day at DHS, things should be a lot clearer about who the contenders are and what the overall standard is like.

  49. @beet: Both Props I referred to played CW this year and was/is part of SARU u16 and u17 squads. Both can play SA schools next year

  50. @Roger: He’s quite a flashy player so my bet would be use him as a wing or fullback but it all depends on KES’s needs and the style under new coach Nkosi. So maybe centre might be where he fits the structure best in the Reds 2017 team.

    ReplyReply
  51. @Hooit: Thanks. I’ve seen both props play. Asenathi Nthlabakanye is a big unit. Was a go to player for ball carrying when Saints played Kearsney this year. Glade was a lot more prominent in the GL’s good CW campaign this year.

  52. Judging by the SARU u17 squad Boishaai have ANOTHER 2 props (Marthinus Strauss + Wilhelm Barnard) coming through. They seem to be churning out good quality SBR props at a much faster rate than any of the top of the table rivals.

    I watched a few PRG games this year and think Tristan Leich really had to man up along with his teammates as they had a very tough schedule and were not the biggest pack. He will be worth tracking next year.

    My personal fav performance by an u17 prop was the Affies reserve James Combrinck who came on against Maritzburg College and had a blinder. He’s a big lad with serious mobility.

    ReplyReply
  53. @beet: Glenwood have Jordan Clarke, but he will grade 11. Might come through depending on the rest of the front row. Schwulst is expected to play a big part, maybe at prop or hooker…

    ReplyReply
  54. @beet, @Hooit: huge prop prospect in Ignis Meyer (Helpmekaar). He played lock until u/16 and converted to prop last year. Unfortunately a knee injury prevented him from playing at CW or AW. Very strong and extremely mobile (Os Durand style). Beast in the rucks. Passed his first test against Eldoraign captain and SA schools player with flying colours last year. Sure bet to see him go as far as SA schools next year if in form.

    ReplyReply
  55. @beet, @hooit, @Riempies: Werner Bock (Helpies prop) also missed most of the season this year due to injury. I will go out on a limb and state that not one of the SA school props will outscrum him. Another player not on present “lists”.

    ReplyReply
  56. @BrotherBear: You must keep in mind selection criteria. For example the to top hookers next year will be in Monnas and Helpies and only 1 can make the Cravenweek team. On this years performance the 2 props I mentioned us a sure pick for CW. Both most probably as first choice props on merit. All my opinion but the hooker issue is fact

  57. @beet: I rate Strauss. He has played off the bench for the Boishaai 1st XV…..on both sides if I remember correctly. He prefers loosehead though

    ReplyReply
  58. @BuffelsCM: Sorry Buffels. My bad. The other prop is Joshua du Preez not Barnard. HJS haven’t done too badly in producing up to standard hookers to compliment all their props.

    ReplyReply
  59. @BrotherBear: Comments at 53:
    It is difficult to gain confidence in a losing team. I know it is the hooker’s job to throw properly. It often happened that he only played the last couple of minutes (when he was in fact on the bench). I really felt for Marx (I think it was the first test) but at his first lineout after replacing Strauss, Pieter-Steph called a split lineout. He called a front ball but was too late to support Eben getting (and staying) in the air. We lost the ball but it was because of the (lack of) support and not because of the throw. As is often the case, the hooker was blamed.

    ReplyReply
  60. @beet: Yes they certainly produce good members of the front row !
    To get back to the loosies: IMO the combination that Ploegie mentioned will be quite good. The player you have mentioned isn’t a natural ball player IMO. I know he is quite tough and strong but IMO he lacks the vision of a true number 8 and is a bit one dimensional.

    ReplyReply
  61. @beet: Only a few: the twins (or at least one of them) at prop, the one lock, one loosie and a few players that weren’t regulars but were always part of the match day squad and had the occasional game in case of injuries.

    ReplyReply
  62. @beet: Muller and van Eden will pose some problem for the coaches. This year we started with van Eden and he got himself injured against Affies and was out for the rest of the season. There are also two under 16 Hookers coming through with one of them in Italy as we speak with that ‘Noordvaal team’ touring there. We have plenty of stock there (hookers)

    For the rest, remember flyhalf van der Bank, he might shine again. At scrumhalf we have a cousin replacing a cousin at pace. I think that is enough said…..let’s wait and see.

    ReplyReply
  63. @Valkie: Geez that’s quite a few hookers. Hopefully one or two of them are versatile and can play back row or prop.

    I can’t say I care much for Jaco Joubert, not after his star performance against KZN on the final day at Craven Week 2016. :mrgreen: But good luck to his cousin for next season.

    I didn’t realise Stefan vd Bank back next year. That’s a big bonus.

    I see that the Rooibulle can also look to an experienced half pairing back for 2017.

  64. @BuffelsCM: WRT no.8 its interesting that the two relative youngsters on the international scene are not in the mold of a classy positional players slash linkmen like a Sergio Parisse or a Kieran Read. Instead they are very big on ball carrying into traffic with outstanding abilities to generate go-forward = Billy Vunipola and Facundo Isa.

    ReplyReply
  65. @Hooit: would you care to expand on the “selection criteria” and “merit” you mentioned?
    Agree that the players in front row you mentioned are good, but surely that is reference only for next year’s selection process? Do previous performers just “pitch up” and get selected above better current performers? Seems like that is how some current Springboks are selected. :-(

    ReplyReply
  66. @beet: next year’s probable Helpie 6 and 7 are excellent in both areas of the game you mentioned – linking and running, so is the probable KES no 8. Lions have really good options there. Nice thing about both Helpie players is that they can adapt, depending on game and opponent weaknesses/ strengts.

    ReplyReply
  67. @BrotherBear: I think the “selection criteria” refers to the quota system in place as part of the CW rules. In places where there isn’t an abundance of POC (sometimes feels like everywhere except WCape and ECape), when one sees quality players without much quota opposition around, it probably becomes a bit easier to make the long term selection predictions.

    ReplyReply
  68. @BrotherBear: The selection criteria for CW is that there must be a whole front row on the bench and between the 6 players it must be at least a 50/50 split. So The Monnas and Helpie hookers cannot both play CW. Fortunately on current form it is my opinion that Glade and Asinathi will be picked as the 1st choice props on merit and at this stage deservedly so. Remember on current form.

  71. Another interesting question. Should a union pick a player for Cravenweek if he has already signed/committed to another union after school?

  74. @Hooit:

    Question 1: YES.

    Question 2: NO

    We’ve seen this sort of Union stance before and its just lousy for the kids.

    Although the Unions have been trusted with overseeing the youth week process from start to finish and in some cases even funding it, CW and other youth weeks are meant to be the reward to players for performing well during that season at school level and not what benefits those player do or don’t offer their schools’ home province the year after school.

    There are already rules in place that prevent some the best players attending CW, it’s just lousy when (coz it happens) more obstacles get put in the way.

    There’s that research that suggests kids born in the first part of the calendar year stand a better chance of succeeding in a physique empowering sport like school rugby (or ice hockey where the research stemmed from), but in SA it does seem to have its benefits to turn 18 from July onwards, as it frees a player from being presurised to declare their after school loyalty ahead of CW selections.

    Anyway my advice to any parents and kids who do commit their futures to other RUs and not their schools RU, is keep tjoepstil about it and white lie if need be. This information should not be voluntarily disclosed before CW selections and SARU should make it an offence for RU’s to ask the question or overlook a player for selection as a result of a post school choice.

    I know that home RU’s have an idea who will be going where because an outside RU has to apply to them for permission to approach a player. A player can only officially be signed once 18 y.o, and this becomes disclosable information. So I guess, if there is a fear of being overlooked for selection, commit but don’t sign anything that SARU deems as disclosable information until after the CW team has been finalised.

    ReplyReply
  75. @beet: I agree. You very much discussed the player point of view. I think the union point of view or reasoning to do the opposite is just as strong. I think there are good arguments for and against it. If the new laws are passed in order to give corporates a bigger slice of the union what is best for the player vs best for the business will be interesting.

    ReplyReply
  76. @Hooit: I know that there was an issue this year with contracted players demanding to be selected to CW. Don’t know what the official stance is though. To demand a selection is however probably an ego issue where the union should not reciprocate as support would also just be an ego response. Could also be that the school coach just played the selectors!

    ReplyReply
  77. @Hooit: To me there is only one view people should take on this issue and it is to side with the boys not the RU. I just think that over two years most kids get many opportunities to try and prove they are good enough to run on wearing their school 1st XV jersey and after school those that choose rugby as a career will have years worth of chances to achieve their goals. However for the majority of school players there is only one chance to go to CW. You make it or you don’t. Lots of kids work their butts of and give everything they have to get there. It remains a massive achievement and honour for live. RU’s mustn’t take that reward away from any deserving player.

    Honestly for RU’s who see using CW as bait or holding a gun to the heads of talented players, I hope the tactic backfires and those RU’s lose more than they gain.

    And thankfully CW plays an ever diminishing role in talent scouting and recruitment. So if a good player does miss out on CW selection for whatever reason, he does not lose out in the long run. But the bottom-line remains : is it’s the kids who still aspire to become CW players. And obviously their schools get good marketing mileage out of selected players as well which isn’t necessarily a good thing either :mrgreen: – it can be just as harmful as RU interference.

  80. @beet: Sorry for being so late in replying to your comment regarding Boishaai,s contribution of props.

    The two Boishaai props in the SA Elite Squad is MJ Strauss and Joshua du Preez.Wilhelm Barnard, the Boishaai hooker , is also in this squad.

    Yip ! You are right ! Boishaai have, for good reason , been labelled the prop factory. This already started way back, when legendary Boy Louw became a Springbok prop. He was followed by Piet “Spiere” Du Toit , Guthrow Steenkamp , Frans Malherbe and Marcel van der Merwe.
    Currently there is another three Boishaai props playing Super Rugby. Thomas Du Toit (everybody expects him to be the next Boishaai Bok prop) and the two Cheetahs props Maks van Dyk and Charles Marais.
    Furthermore, there is a host of Boishaai props in the junior provincial line-ups,as well as in the Varsity Cup competition.
    Most of primary school parents, who keeps an informed eye out for potential schools for their talented kids, knows that if their youngster is a quality prop, Boishaai is the place to be.

  81. @Kattes-Strofes: To add to your comment..Oom Boy’s younger brother Fanie played Tighthead prop for the Boks..Oom Boy played most of his test at loosehead but also played Lock, Flank and 8thman in tests. He was a very versatile forward!..Grey have in fact produced the most Bok props to date with 8, followed by Paul Roos with 6 and Paarl Boys with 5. They did however produce a whole lot more at provincial levels through the years.

    ReplyReply
  82. @BoishaaiPa: Thanks! As you know , Grey also claims Marcel van der Merwe. However, since he was in Boishaai from grade 8 to 11, we also have a solid claim, which gives us also 6 props. Marcel only moved to Grey because he was already unde 19 in matric, and therefore did not qualify for Cravenweek anymore. The Cheetahs contracted him to play for their u/19 side in his matric year.

  88. @Oakdale supporter: Ek het vandag nog by SA Rugby uitsluitsel probeer kry oor die o/20 coach. Hy sou blykbaar op die vergadering van 9 Des. aangestel word. Nietemin, was dit toe nie eers op die agenda nie. n Groep van 84 spelers is blykbaar reeds ge-identifiseer deur Louis Koen en Hans Scriba, wat toetse sal ondergaan hier teen die einde van Januarie. My vraag aan die media bestuurder was toe “should the incoming coaching staff not be consulted in this process ?”. Wel! My die antwoord wat ek gekry het was “I do not know much of the going ons with the u/20 side. Can you please phone back later and hopefully I have more info.” Wel ! Ek het so-pas en sy woorde is dat ja! n oefengroep is reeds ge-identifiseer , maar die afrigter/s sal hopelik eers erens in Januarie aangestel word.

    My inligting (en ek moet byse dat dit net”rumours” is) is dat Jonothan Makwena die gunsteling keuse is as hoof afrigter. Ricardo Loubscher sal sy agterlyn afrigter wees. Die ander kandidate blyk te wees Chean Roux en Deon Davids.

  89. @Kattes-Strofes: Daar is ook sterk gerugte dat Chean Roux en Abe Davids (broer van Francois Davids, SARU vise-president) die afrigters gaan wees. Dit is bekend dat Chean Roux en Jurie Roux goed bevriend is. Dit, sowel as die Davids-konneksie sal dui op uiterste nepotisme van SARU !!
    IMO wil SARU die besluit om die afrigters aan te stel so lank as moontlik uitstel om geld te spaar……natuurlik ten koste van ons rugby. Hulle het dieselfde gedoen met die aanstelling van die Bok-afrigter maar wil nie leer nie!!

Nou ons het al deur al die “aanwins” hoeke uit gedebateer…..Maar, maar, wat van die spelers wat moet ontwikkel word om deur die ranks te kom. Watse motifering hou dit in vir dié kinders, en veral by ouderdom spanne.
    Ons weet nie een ontwikkel selfde tyd as mede ouderdoms gelyke nie. So watse insentief is daar vir die wat later moet deurkom?.
    Hierdie is net in een ouderdoms groep. By een skool.
    Watse getalle praat mens dan nie van by al die skole nie?.
    Dis hoekom jy graad 8 u14 spanne van 3-4 spanne het en u15 sukkel jy om die b-span vol te maak!.
    …en dan is dit die ouers wat nie hulle kinders motifeer ens.
    Hoe motifeer jy iemand vir iets wat geen insentief inhou nie?
    Ek let op by al hierdie skole is daar hoeveel seuns wat dan ophou rugby speel en ander sporte gaan beoefen.
    Afrigters by laer spanne het grootter verantwoordelikheid, om kinders doelgerig en gemotiveerd te hou.
    Dit blyk die tendens is dat by skole die spanne oorgelewer word aan afrigters wat nie die bg. Doel voor oë hou en of verantwoordelikheid aanvaar nie.

Tot n groot mate is bogenoemde uit die kind se hande wat alreeds in die skool is. Laastens het ek nou weer gesien dir week. As jy aspirasies het om 1stes te speel en jy kom na die af seisoen by die 1ste oefening onfiks en duidelik nie gewerk in die vakansie nie is dit die speler se eie toedoen.

  113. @Skopgraaf243: @Hooit: Beide van julle het geldige punte met betrekking tot spelers en die skuif van spelers, maar ek sluk steeds swaar aan die idee van spelers wat skuif na graad 8.

    Dit is dalk die euwel van alle euwels: die feit dat afrigters op skoolvlak gemeet word aan hulle vermoë om wedstryde te kan en moet wen. Dit is presies hoekom daar ‘gewerf’ word. Die wenmotief ten alle koste in stede daarvan dat seuns, en ek bedoel alle seuns wat rugby speel, behoorlik ontwikkel word. Daar is baie voorbeelde van seuns wat nie Craven week gespeel het nie maar na skool tot op die hoogste vlak gaan rugby speel het.

    Ek persoonlik soek eerder ‘n afrigter wat alle seuns betrek en hulle, met liefde en geduld, al die vaardighede van rugby leer, en elke seun ‘n gelyke kans gee om deel te neem. Omdat ons nie in ‘n perfekte wêreld lewe nie is my begeerte slegs ‘n droom en min skole steur hulle aan ‘ontwikkeling’ en die wenmotief kry absolute voorkeur.

    Ek moet sê by NHS is daar verskeie onderwysers wat steeds die ekstra ‘myl’ met seuns loop en hulle help ontwikkel. Die ‘omgee’ tipe onderwyser, nadat almal reeds weg is, is hierdie onderwysers steeds besig met seuns wat ‘wil’ beter doen.

    Laastens, ons verloor baie seuns wat ophou rugby speel omdat daar ‘gewerf’ word, en ons almal weet wat deur die kind se kop gaan as hy sien ‘n speler van ‘n ander skool daag by sy skool op. Vir my persoonlik is dit net nie reg nie, maar dis net my beskeie mening. Ek het geen reg om enige iemand anders of skool te oordeel of te veroordeel oor hulle keuses nie.

  114. @Valkie: ek stem tot groot mate saam met jou (ook rondom oordeel, verbasend genoeg). Probleem is dat ouers se besluite baie keer kortsigtig is en net op skool eerste span of Craven week gefokus is en somtyds glad nie eens akademie en kultuur of skool se algemene uitnemendheid in ag neem nie. Rugby op skool is regtig baie Klein in vergelyking met dit wat na skool kom. Indien rugby jou droom is, fokus op alternatiewe sisteme en strukture buite skool en CW. Ja, die twee bring jou in die limelight maar bitter min seuns kry die voorreg om CW te speel. Sisteme te korrup en bevooroordeeld ( Ja, selfs binne skole).
    Die professionele benadering van sommige skole bring dan ongelukkig die verlies van waardes, soos jy tereg opmerk. Ek glo in professionele ondersteuning (tegnies, vaardighede, taktieke, mental, ens.), maar onderwysers met nodige ondervinding en waarde sisteme moet in beheer wees.

  115. @Hooit…ek dink by oop spanne defnitief. Jou standpunt heeltemal korrek.
    Is ouderdom rugby nie maar net dit nie? Yes daar sal A span wees want daar is beter as ander. Maar wie moet die ontwikkeling van spelers doen?
    Daars geen clear cut jy kan of kannie! Jy werk en onwikkel beter skills om jou talent te komplimenteer. Leer links skop leer om nie te duik pass nie ens. Ens.
    Dit is NET tot nadeel van die kind wat klaar in die betrokke skool is.
    Ek verskil met waaraan jy afrigter meet.
    Daar is leemtes in sekere posisies ek stem, maar wat het die afrigter gedoen aan sy ontwikkeling om spelers deur te bring.
    Wat gaan elke geval gebeur raak die ster beseer wat mid Hoerskool aansluit?…koop nog een, of speel jy drie ander uit posisie uit om te wys jys goeie afrigter?
    Tot voordeel van die span maar nadeel van die kind wat uit posisie uit speel, want hys klaar nie die beste in posisie nie, maar sal moet doen vir tyd en wyl.
    Meeste beserings in skole rugby kom hoofsaaklik op twee goed neer: fiksheid en onkunde!
    Alle sport vereis pre-season training, maar daar werk jy met wat jy het. Dit word soos die atletiek by skole.
    Leerlinge moet buite seisoen self bepaal watter item hulle bestem is, dan buite afrigting verkry en die skool kry lof en eer vir al die kind se prestasies!
    Nou met die rugby blyk dit dieselfde rigting te gaan. Jy moet fiks opdaag, gekondisioneer, gegym, “ge-suit en ge-tie”!
    PLUS jy moet alles van jou posisie weet, sodat jou “AFRIGTER”, aka bestuurder, jou net kan sê wat die gameplan is en kodes virrie lynstane né!

    Persoonlik dis plein laks van die moderne “afrigter”.
    Maar ja kom ons kyk wat doen die A-spanne want dis waaraan afrigters sukses meet as ek jou reg verstaan.

    ReplyReply
  117. @Skopgraaf243: Ek het net nog punte tot jou opmerking genoem. In die groot rugby skole in my opinie word afrigters aan hulle prestasies gemeet. Voorbeeld: Met die Hans Coerzee storie is sy prestasies genoem. Tjaart by Monnas praat hul van die ou wat Beeld 2 keer gewen het. Sean Erasmus met BoisHaai ens. In die rugby gemeenskap hoor ek feitlik nils van n goeie coach sonder prestasies nie. Rugby in top skole glo ek is soos n besigheid en bestuurspraktyke is baie dieselfde. Ek sê nie een van bogenoemde afrigters ontwikkel nie skills nie of is swak of iets negatiefs nie. Die publiek meet hul aan hul eksterne prestasies en nie interne prestasies nie. Ek is seker dat as n makro skool aftigter niks wen nie maar 10 Springbokke oplewer na 5 jaar gaan hy sonder n werk sit. Net my siening.

    Span sport as geheel hou baie lewenslesse en sport as geheel, net soos kultuur en die ander aktiwiteite.

Hierdie ‘terugvoering’ kon natuurlik oorgegaan het tot ‘n meer persoonlike interaksie om inligting te bekom of ‘n kwitansie uit te reik vir gelde betaal. Sal mens ooit weet?

Die Ma het vir haar seun elke instruksie van die pawiljoen af geskreeu en as iemand aan hom vat het sy ‘bobbejaan’ gegaan want hy is ‘n toekomstige springbok. Die arme afrigters het geen kans teen daardie Anti gehad nie, sy’t hulle ook gestoomroller. Selfs die provinsiale afrigters het haar instruksies gevolg. Ek wonder wat die arme seun hierdie jaar gaan doen by sy nuwe provinsie waar die pawiljoen heelwat meer stoele het.

    Wat sê julle manne van die Tuks reeks wat oor minder as twee maande aanbreek:
    1Sat.04MarTransvaliavsMenlopark
    Gaan great nuwe uitdaging wees vir die 2016 kampioene wat hulle staal sal moet wys teen Transvalia wat hulle ontvang in vaal driehoek.
    Tranvalia se u14 en u15 weet ek nie veel nie, maar as julle kêrwls kan onthou van so twee jaar teurg was Transvalia en Klerksdorp se u14 ROOIWARM. Die manne van Transvalia draf die jaar as u16’s uit in 2017. Dit in ag geneem die u15, 2016 van Menlopark het suksesvolle seisoen gehad, so die tafel is gedek vir ‘n titaniese stryd met u16, 2017.
    Dan natuurlik is dit baie belangrik vir Menlopark om 2017 positief af te skop, deur ‘n ‘moet’ wen, by hulle 1ste span.
    Daar is al lank gepraat en bespiegel oor die sukses van Menlopark se seniors, so hulle sal graag op ‘n positiwe noot wil begin.
    2Sat.04MarPietersburgvsEldoraigne
    Eldoraigne dalk te sterk vir Pieties hier.
    3Sat.04MarEG JansenvsRustenburg
    Hierdie kan ook lekker stryd word. Ek dink juniors behoort EG knoop deur te haak en die 1stes gaan interressant wees.
    4Sat.04MarKlerksdorpvsFlorida
    Hier behoort Florida u14 en u15 te vat. Klerksdorp defnitief te sterk by u16, en Florida tops by 1stes.

Geen nuwe spelers glo ingekom op senior vlak nie en geen senior spelers is weg uit die skool nie. Ek weet net van een o15 stut wat Menlo toe geskuif het. Die o14 groep klink belowend en daar is ‘n paar groot graad 8 seuns vanjaar maar ons moet maar sien of hulle rugby wil speel. Van die belowende jong rugbyspelers het bruintruie as buddies gekry so dis sommer positief van dag een af. Die proewe vind eers plaas na afloop van die atletiek seisoen soos in die verlede.

  169. @Cappie: heeltemal reg ja – my stelling oor Affies seuns was nie akkuraat. Hulle en Affies meisies kom wel nie in aanmerking vir gesamentlike beker. Sal in alle geval as A++ moet deelneem a.g.v. getalle (Ja, ek weet dit word nie amptelik so gemeet). Dink nog steeds dat @4X4 het aan Pta been gedink want Prestige College het eers na byeenkoms na A-bond op beweeg. Hulle is wel sterk “up & coming”.

  170. @Leelu: Hy is ‘n legend. Oorgeplaas is een ding, landuit ander ding. Hy het fantastiese geleentheid in Europa gekry. Dink sy aansteeklike entosiasme sal gemis word by Kloof.

    @Valkie: Yster wat so paar jaar terug by EG Jansen was. @BrotherBear: jy is reg…moes beter omskryf het.

    @BrotherBear: I stand corrected…ek het na Pretoria been verwys en ja Helpies atletiek baie sterk.

    Kan almal kommentaar lewer op die hoeveelheid Graad 8’s wat elke skool ontvang het. Affies se getal is 313…

    En waar is ons Garsie vriende????? Dalk stilte voor die Storm??

  171. @4×4: Op jou vraag oor die graad 8 getalle.
    Oakdale het vanjaar 105 nuwe Gr 8s wat die meeste nog ooit is.

  172. Read on Rugby365 that James Hall hasnt pitched at Kings yet. Dont blame him to be honest. Wonder if we can get some inside info.

  173. @Wonder: Nou hoe het julle gekies wie ry en wie bly? Ek onthou toe ons moes inklaar het daar 1800 troepe opgedaag en die eenheid het net kapasiteit gehad vir 1200 troepe. Na medies is al die G3 geklasifiseerde manne uitgepos en die G1K1’s wat daarna oorgebly het het n sarsies “opgeline” om ‘n 100 meter te hardloop. Al die agterosse is so ook uitgehaal en gepos na ander eenhede toe.

    Dit blyk dat kloof by die 400 leerders het en Menlo ook oor die 300. Afrikaans is gesond!!!

  176. @Cappie … daars amper hele winter voor ons daar uitkom, maar interesante call dis verseker!

  177. @4×4: :lol: Ek het sommer net die water getoets met my ‘post’.

    Ons het beslis meer as 250 leerders bygekry maar ek is nie presies seker van die getalle nie. Ek vermoed ook dat ons meer seuns ingekry het as dogters. Ek raai maar……

  178. Ek kan ook dit net noem dat daar op die oomblik ‘n bespreking aan die gang is oor Mpumalanga se skolerugby.

    Tans is daar slegs drie makroskole oor in Mpumalanga, en die aanduiding is dat Middelburg Hoërskool homself gaan onttrek aan die makroskole kompetisie aan die einde van die seisoen omdat hulle leerdergetalle dit nie meer regverdig nie.

    Een idee is dus om die hele struktuur in Mpumalanga te wysig sodat almal op dieselfde vlak meeding. Daar is ander voorstelle ook maar dit kan ek nie nou bespreek nie. Ons wag maar en sien wat die manne in gryspakke mee vorendag gaan kom. Die gesprekke sluit ook in die streek se bywoning van ander kompetisies of weke soos St Johns and alike……. Things are about to change, if the rumours are to become the truth.

  179. @Cappie: Die getalle was omtrent dieselfde. Laasjaar was addisionele voorsiening gemaak in tydelike koshuise om groter inname te verseker (omtrent 100 Graad 8’s). Soos jy bewus is, is Pannavis se maksimum 72 Graad 8’s, en het die skool dit goed geag om hierdie jaar slegs weer 72 Graad 8’s tot die koshuis toe te laat. Dus is daar ‘n wesenlike aanvraag gewees vanuit Pretoria om toelating.

    Dit blyk dat die nuwe koshuis vinniger as later gebou gaan word en kan Affies dalk ook een van die dae met 386 Graad 8’s spog!

  180. Manne wees tog asb versigtig vir jou vrou se ‘loaded question’ as sy by die huis opdaag na ‘n haarkappersessie. Dink voor jy antwoord…..

    Het iemand dalk vir goedkoop behuising vir die naweek?

  181. @Valkie: LOL en daar is nog nie eers rugby op die TV om te blameer dat jy dalk nie mooi na die loaded question geluister het nie :evil:

  182. @Valkie: Waar wil jy die goedkoop behuising hê? Jy kan vir baie goedkoop langs die Vaaldam in ‘n tweemantentjie bly. Selfs ‘n vissie of twee uittrek en verniet uiteet.

  184. Ek het die week Monnas se graad 8 konsert bygewoon. 2 keer. Elke jaar die moeite werd. Ken nie die graad 8 groep nie maar wat size betref gaan monnas o14 n groot span wees die jaar. Definitief groter as laasjaar. Dit lyk belowend. Ook gehoor na net n week in n skool in Johannesburg het n o14 rugby ster alreeds Monnas toe geskuif.

  185. @Valkie: Ek het vir jou gratis verblyf in Monnas koshuis. Jy gaan net die kamer met jou seun moet deel en hy gaan vir so 6 tot 8 maande moet bly.
