  1. I have forwarded to Beet the training squad of the Junior Boks for 2017. This kicks off this coming Monday (24 January). Unfortunately, no coach has yet been appointed .

    Also saw on Rugby 365 a list of WP players who received extentions to their contracts. This list includes a number of junior players of the 2015 and 2016 matrics. However, it is also noticable that a number of former big name players (some of them SA Schools players) as well as members of the record breaking 2015 WP Craven Week team, are not included on this list. I counted that no less than 22 players that did duty for WP in the 2016 u/19 Currie Cup competition, is not included on this latest list of newly contracted players.

  2. @Kattes-strofes…surely somebody must not only smell the rat but by now see it?
    Are they then giving out too many contracts too early or are they just not looking after the contracted players which by now have already set their site for possible contracts abroad.

  3. @Oakdale supporter: Daar is nie minder nie as 85 spelers in die groep. Ek is seker van die meeste posisies, maar daar is ook n paar waarvan ek nie heeltemaal seker is nie. Die Bulle , WP en Leeus het almal 22 spelers. Die Sharks het 10 spelers, die Cheetahs 5 , die OP 3 en die Luiperds 1.
    Ek tik te stadig en vrot om al daai name te gee. Indien jy wil weet oor n spesifieke posisie , of speler, sal ek poog om jou te help.

  4. Was gister by Loftus. Bietjie gekyk hoe die Super rugby squad oefen. Agterlyn het aanval drills gedoen teen mekaar. Manie Libbok het draaie om die seniors gehardloop.

  5. So ±130 days to go until the WR u20 Champs kick off on 31 May 2017 and still no coach. Maybe not a recipe for disaster quite yet but getting very close to one.

    Considering that u20 players will be committed to SA from the rest of their pro rugby careers if selected for the SA u20 team, one kind of hopes for a much higher level of commitment to the cause by SARU. Trying times I know but still…

  6. I’m surprised to see Benhard jvR is still u20.

    Also surprised to see that FS only has 5 reps when they performed relatively well in the u19 compo last year, claiming 4th spot ahead of the Sharks who started poorly and finished well and now have 10 reps. Still early days tho. 2/3 of this squad has to be cut.

  7. Ek het opgetel dat daar nie minder as 13 0/20 spelers in vanjaar se vergrote SA Super Rugby spanne opgeneem is.
    Die Bulle het hier die voortou geneem met 9 spelers. Die Sharks het 3 spelers en die Kings 1. Die Stormers en die Leeus maak meer staat op hul ervare manne.

    Alhoewel ek nie seker is van die aantal speelkans wat die manne gaan kry nie, bly dit steeds n helse prestasie, en gaan die ervaring om saam met die ou bere skouers te kon skuur, vorentoe vir hulle geweldig baie beteken. Wanneer hulle weer by hul ouderdoms groep inskakel ,gaan dit voel soos n skool se 0/19 span teen n 0/15 spannetjie.

    Die spelers is : Bulle : Andell Loubser (no.15), Earl Douwrie (no.15), Irvin Ali (no.11),Manie Libbok (no.10), Boeta Hamman (no.10), Embrose Papier (no.9),Ruben van Heerden (no.5),Hendre Stassen (no.7 of 4) en Gerhard Steenekamp (no.1).
    Sharks : Curvin Bosch (no.15),Ilunga Mukendi (no.11 of 14) en Bernard Janse van Rensburg (no.10).
    Kings : Yaw Penxe (no.11).

    Baie geluk aan hierdie jong manne en hul ouers. Veral aan ons mede blogger MikeSt !

  8. @Kattes-Strofes: Lekker om Boeta se naam daar te sien. Alhoewel dit die verkeerde span is om in te sien. Ken hom al die beter deel van 14jaar, van klein haasbek tot groot seun wat hy nou is. Hy het letterlik langs die veld groot geword. :wink:

  9. @BuiteBreek: Ek stem saam dat ek bly is vir Boeta. Ek dink persoonlik BB rugby het hom en JT se spelpatroon verander, maar dit sal interesant wees om hulle langs mekaar op 10 en 12 in senior rugby te sien. Was nogal gedugte kombinasie op skool.
    ‘n Ander Oakdale kombinasie wat ek gou in senior rugby sal wil sien is HP van Schoor (haker)en Adre Smit(slot) van die Leeus.

  10. @PaarlBok: Jip ! Jy is reg ! Ek verneem dat Salmaan Moerat ook deel vorm van die oefengroep. Ek meen dat bitter min , indien enige van die jong klomp ,wat saam met die onderskeie Super spanne oefen, speelkans gaan kry. Dit bly egter vir hulle n wonderlike ervaring , wat vir hulle vorentoe baie kan beteken.
