Dean Carelse is officially the new Westville 1st XV rugby assistant coach. Carelse joined Westville from Grey High, where he had at a stage been the 1st XV coach. In this his first rugby season at Westville in 2014, he was head coach of their under-16A team. So it has been a meteoric rise to the top.

According to a source in another rugby change Westville Class of 2006 headboy Jo-Ash van Aswegen, who had been involved in the 2nd XV set up along the way will take over as new Director of Rugby.
The current 1st XV head coach Grant Bell has had his contract renewed for one year and will still be in charge of the 1st XV.
Torsten Sorensen, the 1st XV assistant coach for the past couple of seasons will be part of the under-16A set up in 2015.
It’s assumed that Bell will continue to work with the backs while Carelse takes on the responsibility of the forwards.
The changes at Westville will in all likelihood be overshadowed by fresh allegations of Westville using less than worthy tactics to acquire rugby players from several Eastern Cape Border schools, with locals from the region once again finding reason to link the KZN school’s recruitment activities in their region to the Blue Bulls Rugby Union.
