KZN 2013: Returning 1st XV players

The 2012 isn’t quite over yet and the 2013 season is a long long way off but since there seems to be a fair amount of interest in who will be around in 2013, here is an incomplete starting point list of the SBR players that either represented or sat on the bench for their respective first teams this year. (At this stage George Campbell has not been added and there are bound to be several names missing from the schools included as well as a couple of errors, so please contribute if you know of someone who should be on this list)

  1. @Hopper/Grassy; so it seems that on paper the College, MHS, Hiton, Westville, Glenwood, KC teams should be strong. Looks like another good tight season ahead. As you guys have warned, the key is to make sure returning kids do not get full of themselves. I hear kearsney have two warm-up matches, today and next monday vs GW in prep for Grey Bloem…

  2. This is a good guide but predicted form and results should not be attached to the number of returning 1st team players. The best example I can think of of this was the Waterkloof 2011 side who many believed would easily be no.1 in SA last year. They had the players but could not produce the results. Glenwood 2012 is a recent example of WYLYMGB – what you lose you must get get back. They had a young team in 2011 but could not quite find the players to replace their few star Gr.12 players for the 2012 season. So the input of quality u16s + 2nd + 3rd team players + how a team gels can easily reshape fortunes. That said it would be interesting to find out which players (u17+u16) will fill the gaps in these teams in 2013.

  3. Picking a 22-man squad from the u17 players I might go with: Gumede (MC),Whiting (MH),M Jackson(W if he’s u17),Khatide(MC),Pelliccia(K),DduPreez(K),Schramm(K),Schoeman(MH),Maseko(H),JduPreez(K),DelaRey(W),Kay(G),McHardy(W),R-Edwards(K),Tedder(K),VanZyl(D),Nela(G),Coetzee(MC),Ellse(W),Paverd(W),Arnott(MH),Vermaak(G)
    If Jackson is u18 then perhaps Holenstein (MH) or Ndlovu(MC)

  4. 2Beet: Jackson is U17 and will be U18 next year. The above looks good (now), but as we know, a lot happens in a year. :-D

  5. @kcob, yep all the top 4 look to have good players coming back, but we all know Westville and Kearsney are touted to be in the top 2, with College, Glenwood and the others fighting it out for 3rd. I think you are trying to play down Kearsney’s chances, especially with 15 returning. However, you need to take into account those boys that played 2nd’s, 3rd’s and even 4th’s returning as they will be fighting it out for the 1st team. Glenwood’s 2nd’s and 3rd’s I believe are unbeaten locally and have quite a few in grade 11, so hopefully they combine with a relatively strong Under16 group and those mentioned above to create a competitive side. However, the Kearsney game will be at Kearsney this year for Glenwood, which will be extremely difficult to win. DHS and Northwood might be dark horses….

  6. I must add that 2 exciting Glenwood backs that are bound to be contenders for provincial selection next year are Sparks Ngcobo and Mcuma. It will also be interesting to see how the DHS centre Ngubane fares.

  7. @beet Why did you not include Grendon for MHS? Also I watched M. Jackson play U16s last year and so I presume that makes him 17 this year. I am sure he was in the DPHS dream team that included the Du Preez twins.

  8. @star: I missed him by mistake on the sort. He appears in version 2 which now includes Northwood as well. Thanks.

  11. im sure many of this years u16s will put their hands up and will gain 1stxv and kzn selections.
    @beet
    Ngubane is good but has lost a bit of pace after some bulking up, he and brad ellse are MY kzn centre pairing

    ReplyReply
  12. @beet: My jersey looks to plain, what about the Genesis sponsor’s logo? Do you okes play with V necks in Natal? It’s time the scouts start looking at the platteland. Forget about the big schools. There are plenty of talent in the Western Transvaal and OFS CD

    ReplyReply
  13. @horsey; Kurt Webster is a good player. Where will he settle this year? Sounds like he been moved around a bit too?

    ReplyReply
  14. There should also be Andile Ndlovu who was injured the whole of the season but might be playing sevens this term
