    Something I’m quite excited about is the fact that 8(!) of PRG’s 14 u18 WP players will still be around next year. Along with the 6 u16 WP players, that’s quite a decent core for the team next year. Exceptional prop stocks as well, with Mbaliswana and Van Vuuren (both have played first team this year) and the two Grant Khomo props being in the running for next year. With Altus Rabe, Schoeman and Kent also sticking around, that’s a properly good tight 5.

    I don’t think its right to mention the kids name but his name was on the original list in the Academy team, only to find out later that his name was never meant to be there at all. Like I mentioned previously, other blogs/sites who copied this (that is not Beets fault as the change was made on this site) have now put it all over there sites & haven’t made the correction. Beet I agree with your solution to this, WPRFU should also take the blame. The joys of social media. So basically a lot of people are congratulating him & his family based on these other sites & he has to inform them that it was a printing error. Not lekka.

    Obviously the intention isn’t to cause any player disappointment so its regrettably if this happened.
    The information isn’t leaked from one source in a matter of minutes. The gathering of info represents a few hours of work and the assistance of many helpful individuals.
    The process unfolds as follows: WPRU releases each player’s name to only that player’s school. The players are then informed by their respective school officials of the their selection or non-selection for those who had expectations based on attending trials etc. So the WP SBR community gets wind of this happening but only a handful are connected and have access to officials at each school to obtain the other names, so many others turn to persons like myself to satisfy their curiosity about who was picked. I then have a choice to either try answer a 1000 msgs and emails which would take a long time or as an option post the names in one common place for all to see.
    The use of HTML programming language is not so straight forward. My current setup works on an assigned number basis. But following your comment which point to the importance of the numbering to the players coupled with the Sharks not appreciating the numbering be made known in case of changes, I think its in better interests to develop a listing that emphasises position alongside a number so that the listing can be by the latter rather than jersey number.

    Ideally what WPRU should do is release the list to each school and offer the schools a one-hour window to inform their players. Then publish the list on their WPRU website. The Sharks should consider doing the same thing with their youth week teams. In that way they attract all the readers to their way instead of this little one-man-band no commercial gain hobby website of my stealing all their thunder.

    I’m not sure who leaked/penned the names of the WP teams to this site but there was a glaring error in the Academy week team sheet that was originally put out onto this site. I see that now there is a question mark in place of the kids name. How disappointing is that for the kid & his family to see his name & then to get told its actually incorrect. Unfortunately with social media nowadays a lot of other sites / blogs have copied that original team sheet from this site as it was the 1st site that sent the so called WP team sheets but please we need to get this right. Lets rather wait the extra day when it is official before splurging it all over social media. I understand that its not your fault that the other sites/blogs copy & paste from your site, however, to top it all the numbers that you gave the kids are also gospel on their sites so all players from 16- 23 are now known as replacements. I know you had it in bold red letters, however, in future rather send the team names out alphabetically with no numbers unless its an official document from the Union with the players numbers on it. Don’t like to criticise as I think you doing a great job on this site, however, when names are being used we need to make sure that we get it right, first time.

    Someone in the know please shed some light. Tygerberg have 3 Grant Khomo representatives. Very well done to them. Suggests they’re a side with some pedigree. Now, National rankings are not the gold standard but some publications have their U16 side ranked as low as 91st nationally. Any explanation would be appreciated…

    AMAZING TALENT IN WP SQUADS

    I have been following the school boy rugby this season intensively, and it is great to see the names of the young men (boys) who has consistently been making their mark this season. Super happy to see Josh Neill on No 7 in the u/18 CW team. He captained WP u/16 GK last year and this young man has a very very bright future… Sad to see his try on Saturday against Paarl Boys not being awarded. It would have won them the game… Good luck to all the boys!

    Weird to see Rhenish Primary in there. When I was a child we had Paul Roos Primary for Afrikaans and English boys, Bloemhof Primary for Afrikaans girls and Rhenish Primary for English Girls. Paul Roos Primary and Bloemhof Primary combined to form Eikestad Primary about 77, for Afrikaans girls and boys both Afrikaans and English, boys wearing PRG uniform and girls Bloemhof uniform until around 1979 when Eikestad got its own uniform. Rhenish Primary remained girls only until late 80s when the Eikestad English boys were moved there.

    Now that the different WP team jersey numbers have been confirmed, is it possible to redo/resend the official WP teams with correct numbers as a lot of other sites has jumped onto the list u sent. I know you highlighted in red that the numbers were unofficial but social media is another world. Maybe in future, if the team is unofficial, list the names with no numbers alphabetically.

    Was sent to Wolsley Primêr a year late, because there was no space left at the time and as an October baby he was at the back of the queue, just in case anyone shits their pants about his age. Only played rugby first time in his gr9 year, for the towns senior 7’s team, without his mom knowing. He will be in the u19 WP hoops before the year is out

    I tend to agree with Bungee…the combination of Norton, Kemp and Kruger is PRG’s best loose forward combination by a country mile…ask any team who had to face them. Kemp and Kruger were most definitely missed on Saturday. There were just too many missed tackles in the 1st 25 minutes of the match.

    Ek dink darem nie so nie. Ek dink die Craven Week span se vaste 5 is te sterk vir die CW XV s’n. Op sekere sleutelposisies is die CW span net te sterk (10 en die senters, al sou ek Markus M bo Kobus B kies). Die CW XV se lostrio is wel sterker.

    Tactical decision? The people on here certainly didn’t select the team but as always with selections, there will always be more questions than answers. I don’t think I’ve ever seen or heard of a Craven Week team that everyone has been happy with, however, you might be surprised at the end of the week with these certain selections that you obviously are not happy with. As long as WP keep winning the main match on the last day, who are we to complain or moan about selections. If they lose then bring on the knives.

    I don’t think you realise how much depth that schools like Paul Roos have especially this year, They could have half the team out & they would still win most of their matches. The person who is replacing the 1st team player is not very far off the usual starter plus those players tend to up their game as they would like to impress the 1st team coaches. So I disagree with ur statement, yes they missed them, but really how much did they actually, Norton at 7 is not a bad replacement for Kemp if not a better replacement then him, so I don’t think its as big as you think.

    Feel-good storie van die dag: die Craven Week-span se vaskopstut het in HJS se wedstryd teen PRG nog vir HJS se derdespan diens gedoen. Hy het toe deur die spanne opgeskuif en speel nou Craven Week. Wys mens hoe klein die margins tussen spelers op hierdie vlak is (en hoe maklik dit vir afrigters is om goeie spelers mis te kyk).

    This is why I liked the 4th team being based mainly from outside the big schools. I get to see these big school players play week in week out. I want to see the cream of the rest also play, because usually when they get the opportunity to play with other quality players, they start to properly shine. I’m just thinking of the amount of “pros” that are from outside these schools.

    Based on this, I am very much interested to see what the Grant Khomo make-up will look like. Any idea when we will see the teamsheets?

    That’s just a symptom of the centralisation of talent, I’m afraid. Promising players from smaller schools get scooped up by big schools (either Cape schools or schools from the North) after Grant Khomo. To be perfectly honest, I’m surprised that there are as many players from outside the powerhouses as there are. I haven’t watched a Bellville game, but I watched quite a few Stellenberg, Durbanville and Milnerton matches. Of those teams, I thought Milnerton’s 9 (Sellidon) and Stellenberg’s hooker (Keizer) might make it (they did). Stellenberg’s flyhalf is okay, but not better than Dampies, who also missed out in any case. Apart from those three, I could not really point out any player from those teams that I thought had to be here.

    I hope the AW team can win the week again so that WP can have 4 u18 teams again. So many quality players in the region that miss out. Also sad to me that there are so few players that made the teams from outside the old established superpowers (4 SS schools and 4 Wineland schools). (8 in total). Feels lazy

    Quite surprised to not see Joshua Dampies from PRG feature somewhere. He might not be the best flyhalf in the WP, but he is surely among the best six flyhalves. Heck, wasn’t he player of the tournament at Noord-Suid?

    The Wynberg players are confirmed now.
    So only Ashwin Cox and Lucca Mynhardt appear to be outstanding.

    100% agree, I cannot believe that he didn’t make one of these teams. According to me, he should’ve made the Cravenweek team. But luckily he’s only grade 11 so he’ll have another shot next year. Besides his exclusion, the cravenweek team looks strong!

    I agree, thought Jack Benade has had a great season & should definitely have made one of the sides. Unfortunately not sure how the selection committee works.

    This has to do with the quota system in place at Craven Week. Think the number is 12 of the 23 is required.

    I’m surprised that the fullback from SACS has not made one of the three teams?

    I’m wondering more why 2nd team players from Paul Roos made it above their 1st team counterparts. Do the selectors know something Paul Roos’s coaching staff don’t?

    I’m still scratching my head as to how Jayden Joubert missed out
