  1. Nice addition Beet, this is cool!

    Probably a bit unlikely, but it’d also be interesting to see what grade the players are in too…to see the make up of teams (how many matrics/grade 11s are in, etc).

  3. @BoschBoy: Some schools provide an indicator of age group as its on their Boksmart formatted document, so getting the rest a possible goal to work towards. It is useful to know.

  4. @pietretief: Die 15 het reeds laasjaar as Onder 16 seun in Graad 10 al 1ste span gespeel. En sover my kennis strek is 13 ook Graad 11. Die 10 het laasjaar Onder 16A gespeel, die 12 en 14 is tweeling broers die 11 ook laasjaar Onder 16A gespeel. Die vleul wat nie vandag gespeel het nie Bjorn van Wyk is ook Graad 11

    Menlo kon nie O14C,D of E gee nie. Ook nie 015C en O16C nie. Kon ook nie n sesde span gee nie.

  10. @Smallies: @PaarlBok: Looking at the decision of CSA to not have any quotas for the CWC is a good thing. A new poll have shown that 83% of South Africans don’t want quotas in sport. It is something that only the politicians want. Luckily schoolboy teams are still the one place where nobody use quotas and merit is the only measurement for selection. We need to develop all our kids at primary school level till that day we will never achieve real unity and/or transformation. Instead of hard work our politicians and administrators chose the lazy way out, quotas. Luckily very few school coaches and supporters still see color when they support or coach the kids.

  11. @Stier: Stier ons almal weet dit. Ongelukkig is dit n realiteit dat als verander by provinsiale en Nationale skole spanne. Dis n realiteit en ook die rede vir Grey Kollege goed doen maar Vrystaat sukkel by Craven Week. Sal interresant wees hoeveel van die spelers op meriete dan vir hulle skole se 1ste spanne speel.

    ReplyReply
  12. @PaarlBok: Ek weet nie van een skool wat nie hul eerste spanne op meriete, wat ras aanbetref, kies nie, daar mag dalk ander faktore wees wat meriete beinvloed, maar dit hang maar van skool tot skool af. Daar is wel skole wat spesifieke spelers sal gaan werf om aan provinsiale behoeftes te voldoen, maar dan speeL hulle gewoonlik op meriete in die skool se eerte span. As spelers benadeel word skuif hulle deesdae net aan na die volgende skool toe

  13. @Murrayfield: Baie geluk .. goeie dag op “Kantoor” vir Monnas, Daar wag baie harde werk vir Menlo, ek is veral bekommerd oor die O/16 uitslae, hoop ons kan dit fix voor die herontmoeting in Augustus .. Sterkte vir res van seisoen

    ReplyReply
  14. @Richard Lowe: Ja daai o\16 score klink nie reg nie die ouens was laas jaar nog reuse. Miskien begin die ander hulle nou in groei?Dan was die een mos vriendskaplik so kom ons kyk maar later in die jaar met virseker.

    ReplyReply
  15. @sewes: Ja Menlopark se 016 was teleurstellend by GIM o1 toernooi/Boishaai het hulle ver gewen en ek dink hulle her veroor teen PRG ook.

    ReplyReply
  16. @Murrayfield: wat is jou punt “Clown” seinde jy nou op daai vlak wil beweeg!
    “JY WEET PRESIES WAT JY VAN WEGGESTAP HET SO HOEKOM DIE KOMMENTAAR VAN SPANNE WAT MENLO NOG NOOIT GEHAD SELFS TOE JY EN JOU DIK NEK TJOMME DAAR WAS NIE!
    Maar jys reg, check die scoreboard,
    Onthou dit ook wanneer ons mekaar weer speel as dit saak maak ou grootte!

    ReplyReply
  17. @pietretief: ons het net a en b spanne, uitsondering somtyds c as ouderdom groep lucky is.
    Deurlopend is daar net twee spanne per graad.
    Dus oop spanne net vier spanne wat uit graad 11 en 11 beslaan, dan 5e span wat net matrieks is.
    So dis die storie

    ReplyReply
  18. @boerboel: Last year the Menlo u/15 team beat PRG 52-7, this year PRG won 34-26. That is a big shift. One of the Menlo parents told me hockey is more popular with the kids than rugby at the moment. It wouldn’t surprise me, most primary schools in Pretoria have over 1000 children but most schools only cater for two rugby teams per grade. The kids have no choice if they don’t make the A or B team at primary school level they have to find something else. I saw this coming years ago and now the high schools are seeing the results of the primary school systems failure.

  19. @Grizzly: gebeur as spelers grootter as game wil wees.
    Hulle sal wel regkom glo ek.
    Daars hope talent , eks seker dis die skool se sterkste junior groep.

  20. @Skopgraaf243: Mens hoef gewoonlik nie verder as die ouers(pa’s) te soek as dit so gaan nie.Afrigters wat heeltyd moet hoor hoe kontak ander skole hom vir sy seun en hoe gelukkig die skool kan wees dat hy besluit om hom NOG nie te skuif Nie.

    ReplyReply
  21. @Stier: Daai PRG span het n hele paar nuwe spelers gekry sedert hulle laas teen Menlo gespeel het.

    ReplyReply
  22. @Stier: Praat van ander spelers. Daai span jol baie lekker, klomp proper rugby spelers, al is hulle nie die grootste.

    ReplyReply
  23. @Grizzly: Dit is ongeluukig die nadeel van beurshouers. Die ouers loop met ‘n chip op die skouer en Mevrou wil tog net in elke geselskap almal laat verstaan dat haar seun “mos” op ‘n beurs is by skool A,B of C. Boetie voel dan in sy eie mileu baie belangrik en is dan mos immers ingelyks ‘n meneer by die skool. Dan verkies ek liewer om rugby te kyk waarby daar geen ego’s is nie, selfs al kry die span pakslae

  24. @4×4: Well said!👌.As n afrigter moet dit moeilik wees,die skool het bele so jy moet versigtig wees.Jannie wil daai posisie speel en Nie daar Nie…n span het net een Kaptein…onder Kaptein Nie goed genoeg Nie..nee wat,stem saam.

    ReplyReply
  25. @CharlesZA: They do have one or two new boys from Stellenberg but not enough to make such a big difference. We will see how they go against the other big schools. I don’t think Menlo is going to have the impact they did over the last two years. If you don’t have depth it’s not easy to stay consistent at a high level.

    ReplyReply
  26. @McCulleys Workshop: It’s not a failure, because nobody is doing it. Maybe in another 25 years we will realize quotas is bad for everybody and developing grass roots structures is the only locigal and sustainable way to improve our rugby and reach our potential.

  27. @Stier: From my perspective it’s a failure from the unions perspective. That talent pool is there, the facilities are there and only the surface is being scratched. We look far and wide when some of the development opportunity is in front of us, based on what you are suggesting.

  29. @McCulleys Workshop: I agree, we should do much more to develop primary school rugby. Uitsig Primary in Centurion is a good example of what can be done to develop poc if done correctly. We are investing our time and money in the wrong place.

    @sewes: I have no idea what you are talking about. :wink:

  30. @McCulleys Workshop: @Stier: The unions the schools & everyone in rugby are not responsible! Government needs to have built proper schools by now. The Trillions wasted on personal wealth should have been used on PDI schools. Proper schools with proper facilities like what Gary Kirsten has done but bigger scale.
