All in a day’s work for EG’s coaches Rudi & Reghardt

What an Easter Monday , 18 April 2022 was for EG Jansen and University of Pretoria coaches Rudi Dames and Reghardt Botha!

Kearsney Easter Rugby Festival – Botha’s Hill, KwaZulu-Natal

09h30 – Dr EG Jansen’s match against Glenwood kicks off.

Midway through the first half and Jansies look to be staring down a barrel at 0-10 down and unable to find any gears.

EG look a different team in the second half and add two second-half tries to one awarded in the first half, to finish strongly to cause a bit of an upset, winning 17-10.

Soon after the final whistle Dames and Botha set off on a 6.5-hour 600km trip to their next destination.

Varsity Cup Semi-Final – Shimla Park, Bloemfontein

19h00 – Underdogs UP-Tuks get underway against UFS Shimlas.

After 32-min it’s 11-21 to the University of Free State and going according to the form-book.

18-unanwered points sees Tuks reverse the tables to cause an upset, win 29-21 and book a place in the final against Maties at the Danie Craven Stadium in Stellenbosch on 25 April 2022.

  6. @Mate: As die wind eers begin waai op Val de Vlie is daardie baan nie jou maat nie.
    Jy is net uiters bevvoorreg om in die oggend so vroeg te speel.

    Iโ€™m sure originally Rudi was going to be in charge but had some other commitments and then became 2IC
    Maybe somebody can verify that
    If Iโ€™m wrong then Iโ€™ll humbly apologise

  10. Two very very good coaches. Tough as nails and so are the teams they coach. Both also played good rugby. @mate Im not too sure if Rudi ever pulled the strings at Glenwood in SE era, I always remember SE being the Rugby man in charge, Rudi did however fill that role when SE left to HJS. Then Rudi took a role at PTA Boys, where he and Regardt coached together at the Bulls provincial teams when Regardt was at Menlo. They both moved to EGJ and coach together at TUKS.

  12. Did you know that back in the days, Dames was actually the big dog at Glenwood and Sean Erasmus his under study
    Rugby commitments abroad for Dames then made SE in charge
    Very very underrated coach this Dames character
