  1. The article also mentioned Dylan Schwartz (EG Jansen -> Bulls) and Muzi Manyike (Jeppe -> Lions). Both players can play 10 but will probably be employed as midfielders (where they have done the most damage as 1st XV players) starting in 2019.

  2. Lionel April have not signed any contract yet. As I have previously mentioned, I am helping this talented younster. Apart from WP, I know that the Bulls and the Lions are interested in him.

  3. @Kattes-Strofes: Sjoe will there be any contracts left by the time he decides. I heard the Bulls have completed their contracting for 2019, so maybe Rapport onto something by saying WP have signed him. WP have access to Kearsney flyhalf/fullback Jacques Odendaal as well next year so they perhaps not too fazed about 10’s at the moment

  4. @Beet: Beet ! Trust me ! They are very interested. He has signed nothing. This boy is the real deal! He played a huge role in the Boland,s win over WP in the final trial match at Bellville. I spoke Friday to the Bulls and Lions, and also today with him.

  5. So nobody’s taken any notice of the flyhalf from Framesby yet? I must say I am very surprised. He is the real deal and will catch the eye at craven week..
    Ask any team he has played against..

  6. Interesting to see that Lions WP and KZN has multiple players hunted by unions for flyhalf spot, but only one flyhalf from Blue Bulls region?? Are our flyhalfs that bad?

  7. @BlouLou: Moet darem meld dat, soos met die Noord Transvaal skole, net een van die WP skole se loskakels t.w. Paul Roos se Juan Mostert deur die unies genader is volgens Beet en Rapport se inligting. Drosdy se Shaun Baxter en Hermanus se Lionel April val onder Boland, terwyl Oakdale se JD Strydom onder SWD val.

    Dit is egter so dat laasgenoemde skole speel ook heelwat wedstryde teen WP skole, wat hulle beter kompetisie bied.

  8. @Kattes-Strofes: dit lyk nie of al die talent hierbo genoem word nie. Met die bietjie wat ek van die Kaapse skole gesien, moet daar nog iewers kontraktreurde spelers wees. ‘n Pollard en Goosen sien mens nie elke jaar nie, maar sou wou glo dat daar darem maar meer as en swavelltjie noord van die rivier sou wees
