Dollie to go on trial with the Brumbies

Former Western Province and Boland flyhalf Isma-eel Dollie will go on trial with Australian Super 14 side the Brumbies in Canberra later this week.

Dollie’s father, Ganief, told the Cape Times that his son had approached the Brumbies and that they had invited him for a trial. Dollie is currently out of contract after his WP contract ended on October 31 this year.

Ganief Dollie said he was sad to see his son having to go outside South Africa. “Firstly, I just want to say that Isma-eel has not signed with the Brumbies. He is just going to Canberra on a trial basis,” he said.

“He was actually forced to go there because no-one offered him a Super 14 contract in South Africa. He has been playing Vodacom Cup and Currie Cup rugby for the past two seasons, but he has not been given a chance to prove himself in the Super 14. He really wants to play at that level, and this trial with the Brumbies gives him a chance to hopefully fulfil that dream.”

Ganief Dollie says Isma-eel, the former SA Under-21 flyhalf under current Bok coach Peter de Villiers in 2006, would ideally have liked to stay in South Africa. “Isma-eel left with a heavy heart,” he said. “You know, he is also still on Peter’s radar, so that made it even more difficult for him. But he has tried his best here.

“He is 23 now and wants to play top-level rugby. He also needs to earn a proper living. He has also sent his CV to many teams in France, England, Australia and New Zealand, so we are also awaiting answers from them.”

  • @Worcestershire Sauce (Comment 6) : he needs to impress in the trial first. Good litmus test of whether he really is as good as his legion of adoring fans would have you believe…

    Perhaps they should launch a parallel competition – a “midget Super 14″, if you will, so Rose, Dollie, Ebersohn and their little kind can also feel special :)

    I take exception to that comment.
    Nobody forced him – he simply hasn’t proved himself good enough or forceful enough.
    I’m sorry but he hasn’t.

    He needs to accept that there is a Bok u/21 flyhalf every year and not all of them can go on to become professional players.

    I anyway doubt whetehr he could make a go of it in Oz as a backline player if he wasn’t able to get anyway in SA, a country not overly blessed with backs in the way Oz is.

    The reason he didnt get a S14 contrcat is because there were (at least) 10 better flyhalves in SA than him. It’s not rocket science. To say that you’re forced out becasue you’re not good enough doesn;t cut the mustard in my humble opinion.
    That said, I dont think that is the way it was said or how it was meant.

  • @McLovin (Comment 10) : I have to say this situation is different to most of the others, especially the Rathbone situation. Dollie was out of a Super 14 contract, no SA Super 14 franchises were willing to consider him, therefore he had no choice. Now whether he has the ability to succeed at the Super 14 level rightfully should be questioned, but he really has done nothing wrong here. Rathbone was almost considered a certainty for the Bok team when he left for Oz.

    No ‘official’ Brumbies trial for Dollie
    Mon, 08 Dec 2008 09:54

    Western Province and Boland flyhalf Isma-eel Dollie will “meet” with the Brumbies coaching staff in Canberra this week, but there is no official trial set for the former South African Under-21 star.

    The 23-year-old Dollie, a surprise inclusion in Springbok coach Peter de Villiers’ expanded training squad early this year, told local media outlets on Monday that he had approached the Brumbies and that they had invited him for a “trial”.

    However, the Brumbies on Monday poured cold water on the prospects of the young player earning a contract in Canberra.

    Dollie, currently out of contract after his WP contract ended in October, has been unable to break into Super Rugby – despite being highly rated by the Bok coach, for whom he played at age-group level in 2006.

    He spent most of the last few years playing Vodacom Cup (second tier provincial rugby) and club rugby, while he was also a member of the Boland Cavaliers Currie Cup squad – without getting too much game time.

    However, Dollie felt he was “forced” to look outside South Africa for opportunities as no-one offered him a Super 14 contract in South Africa.

    “He has not been given a chance to prove himself in the Super 14,” Ganief Dollie, Isma-eel’s father, told the Cape Times.

    Dollie admitted he has also sent his CV to “many teams” in France, England, Australia and New Zealand.

    The Brumbies on Monday confirmed that Dollie had made contact with them and will meet with coaching staff in Canberra later this week.

    “At this stage coaches are reviewing his tapes, but no official trial has yet been set,” Brumbies media manager Nick Smith told rugby365.com from Canberra.

    The Brumbies, who have two talented young flyhalves – 18-year-old Matt Toomua and 21-year-old Christian Lealiifano – in their squad are not looking to recruit another No.10.

    “At this stage we are very comfortable with the 31 contracted players we have for 2009,” Smith told this website, adding that there is some flexibility and that they are allowed a maximum of 33 players.

    “But it is unlikely that the senior squad will be extended.”

    Brumbies chasing Giteau’s signature
    Mon, 08 Dec 2008 14:09

    Mercurial Australian flyhalf Matt Giteau is definitely on the Brumbies’ shopping list, even if only for 2010.

    The 26-year-old Giteau, who at the weekend requested ‘proper discussions’ with his Super 14 bosses, the Western Force, appears determined to leave Perth and head back to Canberra.

    Now the Brumbies have confirmed that they are in the market for the No.10′s signature.

    “We have made no secret about our desire to see Matt [Giteau] back with the Brumbies,” Brumbies media manager Nick Smith told rugby365.com on Monday.

    “Matt is contracted with the Western Force for 2009, but we will be discussing the possibility of a return to Canberra for 2010 and 2011,” he told this website.

    Giteau, speaking to the Sunday Herald Sun at the weekend, dismissed the suggestion that he will take up a lucrative deal at a cash-flush French club.

    However, he has given his strongest indication yet that he may not play Super 14 in Perth for much longer.

    “I want to be playing in Australia, but I can’t say where that will be,” he said from London before flying to the United States for Christmas.

    Giteau, who has been the subject of a AU$8 million, four-year offer from French club Bayonne, said he has had no talks with Force since leaving on the Wallabies’ year-end tour to Hong Kong and Europe.

    “That’s been a problem,” he said. “I wouldn’t mind talking to them. I need to sit down and talk it over with the Force, my manager, my family and girlfriend. I’ve got to sit down and have a lengthy, proper discussion and get a few things clear.

    “Australian rugby is where I want to be. Playing for the Wallabies is something special and we’re embarking on something special.”

  • Shame, i feel for Dollie but he should have left the Western Cape ages ago. It is clear he is not rated here. I think he stayed becos Rassie promised he would get a chance to play S14. Hope he gets to play for a decent side soon.

  • @wpw (Comment 55) :

    I would like to expand on what Vinnie said earlier. Dollie (and some of his supporters) need to come to the realisation that not every U/21 Bok Flyhalf is going to play Springbok or even, in some cases, S14 rugby.

    You have a situation where you have a new u/21 flyhalf almost every year yet a senior flyhalf will be around for 5 or more years and if that u/21 flyhalf happens to be at his peak when the senior guys are doing okay then he is not going to have the chance to make the step up to the big time, either straight away or in some cases, ever.

    It’s harsh but it is reality.

    Maybe they originally had hope for the guy and thought he would make the step up and/or be needed, in the end he wasn’t needed and it didn’t work out for him.

    There was time this year when he would have played for them but as luck would have it he had just moved to Boland when WP needed him.

    Dude, maybe u should read all the comments first before posting.

    The ‘trial’ is apparently a meeting… According to the Brumbies, he is NOT there for a trial. :roll:

    ahahahahaha. Brumbies have denied they’re giving him a trial…

    They reckon he asked to come see them and they said yes… it was him who told everyone it was an official trial!

  • @robdylan (Comment 93) : Read somewhere that women prefer taller men, long upper body & short legs. Short relative to the upper body. Not like a chimp.

    And for women being short is a plus point when it comes to finding a mate. But again the short is relative.

    I am not sure what I was weighing then but had lost a bit of weight before starting to train seriously again.

    have just come back from an hour long Spin class and a 4km run.

    Tomorrow am is a hour spin class followed by another 4km run

    Thursday is an hour class followed an 8k run

    Friday is a rest day.

    my heart rate monitor tells me I am burning around 1200Cals per session. (tonight was 913 + 475. worked a little harder) :wink:
