No more 2008 for Isma-eel, Frikkie

Isma-eel Dollie’s rugby season is over.

A month after the Western Province-contracted flyhalf rejoined the Boland Cavaliers, he sustained a groin injury against the Sharks that rules him out for the rest of the season.

“It is sad,” Dollie said.

“The specialist ruled me out for six weeks which mean I will not return to the playing field this season.”

That was not the only bad news coach Deon Davids received on Wednesday ahead of Saturday’s Currie Cup match against Griquas in Kimberley.

Hark-working lock Frikkie Spies will also miss the rest of the season after sustaining a shoulder injury against the Sharks and right wing Danwell Demas could not be selected because of an shoulder injury, while hooker Clemen Lewis will sit it out with a knee injury.

“It is really tough when your group of players is not that big. But I suppose it is something the so-called smaller unions have to live with,” coach Deon Davids said.

Demas will be replaced by promising young Cornell Hendricks on the right wing, while Boland’s most experienced player, Piet van Zyl, takes Hendricks’ place at centre.

Elgar Watts takes over the No 10 jersey from Dollie, while Marnus Hugo returns at scrumhalf at the expense of Neil Papier. Papier now finds himself amongst the replacements.

And up front towering Nico Esterhuyse comes in for Spies.

The Boland team: Justin Peach, Cornell Hendricks, Piet van Zyl (capt), Lionel Cornelius, Alvin Hugo, Elgar Watts, Marnus Hugo, Dries van Schalkwyk, Angelo Brinkhuis, Zolani Mofu, Bradley Mockford, Nico Esterhuyse, WP Nel, Harry Vermaas, Janro van Niekerk.

Replacements: Pieter Wium, Jean Botha, Cecil Kemp, Whalied Heyns, Neil Papier, Deon Scholtz, Renfred Dazel.

  • From last Sundays Kaap Rapport-
    The following 12 players will not be available for Boland next season
    Coennie Basson (France)
    Fabian Brandt (retiring)
    Tommy Dixon (retiring)
    Henley du Plessis (retiring)
    John Daniels (retiring)
    Dewaldt Duvenhage (WP)
    Francois Prinsloo (Taranaki NZ)
    Dries van Schalkwyk (Bulls)
    Jean Botha (Cheetahs)
    Lionel Cornelius (SHARKS)
    Piet van Zyl (France)

    These players will be replaced by players coming through the club system in Boland. No players will be, or can be, bought in.

  • I pressume its the money issue. In the article the coach just mentions that they will be filling the void with club players. There are apparently more than 200 clubs in the Boland.
