Top Rugby Talent on Display at NWU-Puk Skouspel

Tue, 26/03/2013 - 16:47
  • Glenwood vs Framesby

This year's NWU-PUK-Rugbyinstituut Skole Skouspel was unquestionably dominated by Gauteng and North West schools Garsfontein, Noord-Kaap, and Transvalia. The only three undefeated teams also boasted the only positive points differences among the twelve competing schools with Garsies posting the best offensive record (168) and HS Transvalia conceding the least (34)!

Garsies look like their 2013 campaign will be a strong one after four of their players made the tournament team - two more than any other school at the tournament. 2012 Bulls Craven Week representative, Lock Hyron Andrews, came as no surprise but it seems he's not the only talent Garsfontein is holding as fellow forward Heinrich de Jongh (hooker), inside centre Franco Naude, and fullback Jade Solomons joined him in the tournament selection. 

Noord-Kaap's outside centre made a name for himself as he was crowned the best backline player as well as being selected for the tournament team alongside teammate GM Bruwer. This up and comer deserves the attention after his heavy contributions to his side's victories. 

While HTS Louis Botha had an unimpressive run winning one of three matches, their star prop Ox Nche impressed as usual to earn his title as best forward, and Drostdy's Hanro Liebenberg (Wiaan Liebenberg's younger brother) is living up to expectations with his selection to the tournament team and taking Player of the Tournament.
