A South African Under 20 squad to play against a number of French invitational teams in February has been named. The tour will give the players much-needed international exposure ahead of the annual IRB Junior World Championships, to be played in Argentina in June.

Sharks under 19 locks Johan Schoonbee and Peet Marais have been included, along with promising hooker Monde Hadebe and winger Sibu Sithole. A third lock, Kene Okafor, has been ruled out of the tour due to injury, along with former Dale number 8 Tera Mthemba.

The side will contain a core of experienced players, including a trio of Bulls stars who played for the Baby Boks at the IRB Champs last year. Number 8 Christian Stander and outside backs Clayton Blommetjies and Sampie Mastriet will look to show the new players the ropes.

Congrats to our Sharks lads and good luck to the team!

  • a Few 150 year 2008 Paarl Gimmies in this team:
    Louis Schreuder (Gims capt) scrummie, Helmut lehman (red hair 6 flanker), Johan Scoonbee (tall lock). Was hoping Ruaan Smith (fatty) would make the team also. He have ties with Australia and may end up in canary yellow if they dont pluck him.

  • Miss watching him walking down Paarls main road from school. My daughter was in his matrix class and she told me they were doing some welfare work for the church in our Mbkweni area , painting a Pre Primary school. They forget the ladder to do the ceiling, luckily they had Shcoonbee, he did it chop, chop.

  • Oh hope we’ll add one trophe tonighte, :lol:

    Anyway Scoonbee the only Paarl Gim boy that left WP in 2008, thought he’d probably suffer more then myself with the Red Tale in Durbs. Boerklong daai and hope you look good after our talent.

    Rossouw de Klerk the other, he sure will come back and hunt WP for years to come. That boy have a old head on a young fatty body and expecting big things from him.

    Grey College captain and scrumhalf Pieter Rademan leads his team into battle

    Grey College and Paarl Gimnasium will clash for the first time in quite a while, when the two teams meet each other on April 24, 2010 on the first day of the Wildeklawer Superschool Invitation-tournament hosted by Affies in Pretoria.

    This year’s tournament was hosted by Paarl Gimnasium, while the tournament will move to Kimberley with Diamantveld set to play hosts in 2011.

    Matches between Paul Roos Gimnasium and Outeniqua, Paarl Boys’ High and Glenwood, Affies and Outeniqua and last, but certainly not least, Boland Landbou and Waterkloof are also – no doubt – going to produce fireworks on Day One.

    Grey College did not feature in this year’s tournament, having committed to the FNB-sponsored tournament – hosted by Windhoek Gimnasium – in Namibia. They will, however, make the trip to Windhoek, too, as well as playing in Kearsney College’s tournament over the Easter weekend.

    With Grey College set to play Paarl Boys’ High, Glenwood, Paul Roos Gimnasium and Outeniqua next year, they might play against Monument, Waterkloof or Outeniqua in their second match of this Wildeklawer Superschool Invitation-tournament.

    The Day Two fixtures will be confirmed at a later stage.

    Day One fixtures:
    (Times not yet finalised, but in order of matches.)
    Florida v Wildeklawer Barbarians
    Framesby v EG Jansen
    Boland Landbou v Waterkloof
    Grey College v Paarl Gimnasium
    Diamantveld v Middelburg THS
    Paarl Boys’ High v Glenwood
    Paul Roos Gimnasium v Monument
    Affies v Outeniqua
