Western Province boasts quite a high profile team for their first round home match against the Blue Bulls in the Under-19 Championship of 2018.
A number of players just-just missed out on SA Schools selection last year. Old Selbornian David Coetzer tops the list as although he wasn’t considered for the SA under-18 team in 2017, he is now a Baby Bok under-20 World Championship bronze medal winner. Then there are the likes of Dian Bleuler, Bevan Prinsloo, Francke Horn, Waqar Solaan, David Kriel and Marcel Theunissen who were all red-hot for the best part of their final year of SBR with earning national honours.
There are a number of Eastern Province and Free State school representatives in the 23 but as usual for Province there is a very distinct Cape homegrown feel about their junior squad.
