Naas Olivier has been named in the WP 22 to take on the Valke in Brakpan this weekend!

As predicted, the frankly baffling decision to release virtually all of WP’s young flyhalf talent to other provinces has resulted in Alistair Coetzee having no option but to include the recently-returned Olivier in the number 21 jersey.

Boland scrumhalf Dewald Duvenage comes straight into the starting team, with Alistair Siegelaar on the bench and Paul Delport playing club rugby. PJ Vermeulen and Morgan Newman swap jerseys; the former will start in 13.

Justin Melck comes in for Pieter Myburgh in the only change to the pack, with Pieter Louw and Conraad Britz the second and third row replacements on the bench.

Here is the side, again captained by Gcobani Bobo:

15 Gio Aplon, 14 Tonderai Chavanga, 13 PJ Vermeulen, 12 Gcobani Bobo (capt), 11 Wylie Human, 10 Willem de Waal, 9 Dewald Duvenage, 8 AJ Venter, 7 Francois Louw, 6 Justin Melck, 5 Ross Skeate, 4 Adriaan Fondse, 3 Brok Harris, 2 Deon Fourie, 1 Wicus Blaauw
16 Simon Westraadt, 17 Schalk Ferreira, 18 Pieter Louw, 19 Conraad Britz, 20 Alistair Siegelaar, 21 Naas Olivier, 22 Morgan Newman

  • Way to grow the young talent. Sheesh, suppose we’ll just spend a bomb buying the next greatest from some other union.

    BTW, is Len (Valke) Olivier Naas’s brother?

    Yes. He also looks a bit Meisiekind-ish, surprising they are not related…

  • @robdylan (Comment 23) :
    He had his chances and didnt take them. I fear that a lack of consistency in his throwing was his undoing. I once expected much of him, but alas, he has taken the low road – for now.

  • Pretty surprise to see Dewald in WP 9. :shock: Look like bOland had swopped him for Dollie. Dewaldt is however a much better talent then either Siegelaar or Delport. Boland having Marnus and Papier.

    Naas Olivier is a former Shark player?
    It seems as if not all people in Sharksworld like him.
    Did he make any mistakes?

    Welcome to the site…. I’m pretty sure they said on Friday night that Len is not related to Wynand. I thought he was related to Naas.

  • ok – so Naas was born in Klerksdorp and went to Potch HTS.

    Wynand born in Welkom and went to Riebeeckstad Primary, then Affies

    Len born in Pretoria, went to Hennopspark Primary, then Affies.

    Based on that, I don’t reckon any of them are related.
