  1. Two teams meaning WP and WP XV? About time that WP had two teams at CW. With the talent they have between the southern suburbs, Paarl and Stellenbosch having a single team has been ludicrous.

  2. Mink Scharink gets in automatically based on having the best name for a rugby player, ever.

    With Paul Roos being so dominant this season, seems strange that they don’t have anyone in 5, 6 and 7?

  3. @TheGoose: I’m surprised at the no. of HJS players releative to PRG players, who are steaks ahead of them this season, what’s the theory, HJS has brilliant individual talent and PRG are just well coached….

  4. My stab at it.MY best team, no PD’s. I must admit i haven’t seen everyone play this season.
    1.De Wet Wolhuter
    2.JJ Kotze
    3.Hanru Jacobs
    4.Jarod Cairns
    5.Adriaan Alberts
    6.?
    7.Evan Roos
    8.Eugene Snyders
    9.Bobby Alexander
    10.Juan Mostert
    11.Tiaan Pretorius
    12.Luca Liebenberg
    13.Reagan vd Westhuizen
    14.Stravino Jacobs{Although he plays leftwing for Gim and is a 13 on the list}
    15.Darren Hendricks
    I’m not choosing any reserves. The real team will look different because of the PD ratio not achieved in my team.

  5. I speak under correction but I think Reagan vd Westhuizen might be u/19 and not eligible. He played as a Gr7 from Paarl Boys Primary for the Paarl Boys u/14 team as he was u/14 already. He went to PR as Gr8. I believe if he is in matric he might be over age for CW.

  6. Most of the players on the list represented WP vs Boland a few days back. I have been told that the selections have shown signs of being disorganised and out of touch tho.

    Stavino was listed at 13 by WPRU. I will change him to 11.

  7. @Beet: Believe teams have been picked. They let every school know which players in their school made the team.

    ReplyReply
  8. @Beet: Everybody on the list extremely capable. Remy very fast with a great left boot as an option for line kicks. Safe under the high ball but a bit of a jekyll and hyde player,will drop an extremely easy catch and the next moment do something brilliantly individualistic as in the Paarl Gim match.I Love to watch him as a player.

  11. @Ploegskaar: en… Roos pass vir Rose… behoort die kommentators besig te hou!

    Well done vir julle effort teen Gim… julle kan trots voel… die boere is ysters!

  12. As Boishaai ondersteuner dink ek ons kan op die meeste 2 spelers in die Cravenweek A span hê in Alberts en Roos (geen agterspelers in sig nie!). Dit maak net sin dat die fenominale Paul Roos span die grootse getal spelers in die span moet hê.

  14. @Kattes-Strofes: Oom katte,ek is nie heeltemal vertroud met die spelers nie,sien egter daai Boland 13 haal die meeste se span,hys baie goed.Sterk baldraer en verdediger,sal hy nie n goeie 12 maak nie?

    ReplyReply
  15. @Grizzly: Ek stem. Die feit is egter dat Dawid Kellerman reeds verlede jaar die WP span op binne senter gehaal het. Alhoewel hy nog nie vanjaar dieselfde spelpeil gelewer het nie, bly hy n goeie speler. De Klerk is net n te goeie speler om nie in my span te wees nie. So daarom maak ek vir hom plek op no. 13. Natuurlik sal my span nie die werklik gekose span wees nie, weens die transformasie teikens.

  16. @Kattes-Strofes: Ek dink maar net met die oog op SASkole span,Diego in die saal op 13.Dan rate almal daai 9 van Bishops,is Boland se 9 in die prentjie?Kies gewoonlik 2 9’s met WP se 2 spanne dan ten minste 4 9’s.Waar die Bokke probleme op 9 het met niemand wat daai trui syne wil maak nie,het die skole n rekord oes op 9 die jaar…

  17. @Kattes-Strofes: Ek wou nou nie verantwoordelik wees vir ‘n “Ashwin insident” nie, maar met die Valke se voorbeeld van Birchleigh, sou ek dink die 4 manne van Milnerton is in die binnebaan!

    Ek wonder sommer ook of Keagan Saal die boetie van Duncan is, want as hy soos sy (vermoedelik) ouboet kan speel, is Kasselsvlei verseker ook in die mix.

    ReplyReply
  18. @Valkie: Ek dink ons almal besef dit. Ek glo ook dat almal hul beste spanne gekies het, sonder om die SARU vereistes na te kom. Die werklike span wat gekies sal word glo ek sal heelwat van ons keuses verskil. Die grootste kopseer vir die keurders van al die unies is om te verseker dat hulle die beste spelers van kleur in hul spanne het, en dan ook moet seker maak dat van hul sleutel blanke spelers, ingesluit kan word. Dit sal maar altyd vir n taai tameletjie sorg, en goeie spelers, wat op meriete die span moes haal, wat natuurlik ook spelers van kleur insluit, (veral in die Wes – Kaap se spanne), kan moontlik in die slag bly.
