King Louis returns

Louis Koen, remember him? The scrumcap-wearing flyhalf who played 15 tests for the Boks a few years ago. The same Louis Koen who has been coaching in Boland for two seasons.

Well, he is back on the playing field again 7 seasons after retiring. The 35 year old will make his debut for Boland against the Valke as coach Loffie Eloff desperately tries to salvage a poor Currie Cup season for a team hoping to get straight back into the Premier division.

It will be interesting to see how the 35 year old goes, but word is that he has been training well and kicking well over the last week. Interesting stuff indeed!

Here are the rest of the first division teams for the weekend:

  • Chris Micklewood at 15 for Boland. So that’s where he is. The Westville old boy was SA Schools fullback and captain before he disappeared off the rugby radar. Was wondering where on earth he went. Maybe he’s studying at Stellies or something.

  • Here’s my list of players that (to my knowledge) at least saw some Super 12/14 game time:
    Louis Koen, Bolla Conradie, Braam Immelman, Hottie Louw, Hilton Lobberts, Nikolai Blignaut, JW Jonker, Barry Goodes, Tiger Mangweni, De Wet Barry, Mzwandile Stick, Solly Tyibilika, Chumani Booi, Bevin Fortuin

    As far as I know: Koen, Conradie, Hottie Louw, De Wet Barry, Solly and Fortuin were all springboks at some point. It’s interesting to witness how some players just seem to slip off the radar. Are they too old or were they never really that good anyway?

    Good question, he was still up there with the big boys when he suddenly vanished. I think his biggest problem was that he had played for Zim so could never play for the Boks.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 54) : Of course the time you are referring to is the infamous Dolph Straueli era where he awarded something like 55 players in one year with green blazers. It was also a strange time because as limited as Louis Koen was, there really wasn’t a flyhalf better than him around.

    Are WP using Boland to keep their guys match fit?

    We seem brighter than these guys we use a premier division side foir that. ;-)
