The U19 team to kick off the rugby at Mr Price Kings Park this Saturday has been announced, as they face up to Western Province in a must win game. The team sees a reshuffled backline and only one change to the forward pack that faced the Cheetahs two weeks ago.

Amongst the forwards, we see Ernst Ladendorf replacing Braam Steyn in the second row, with Steyn falling to the bench while Wade Elliot falls out of the match 22.

It is in the backline where we see the most change, as Heinrish Arendse moves to fullback from right wing, Siyabonga Tom shifts from left to right wing, Janco Tietd moving from fullback to left wing. So all in all, the exact same back three, just a swop of jerseys.

We also see a brand new centre pairing as Ruan Allerston and Andrew Holland fall out of the match 22 to make way for Dean Moolman and Tyler Fisher. This takes to 5 the amount of school-going boys in this team, with Tyler Fisher, Dean Moolman, Siyabonga Tom, Stefan Ungerer and Robert du Preez all still at school.

The Sharks U19: 15. Heinrich Arendse, 14. Siyabonga Tom, 13. Tyler Fisher, 12. Dean Moolman, 11. Janco Tiedt, 10. Robert du Preez, 9. Ivan Ludick, 8.Guy Alexander, 7. Alwyn Jansen van Vuuren, 6. Khaya Majola, 5. Stephan Lewies, 4. Ernst Ladendorf, 3. Nicolaas van Dyk, 2. Franco Marais, 1. Allan Dell (Capt)

Reserves: 16. Chad Banfield, 17. Simon Kerrod, 18. Stephan Deyzel, 19. Jason Klaasen, 20. Braam Steyn, 21. Stefan Ungerer, 22. Riaan van Zyl, 23. Keelin Bastew

  • @Muzi (Comment 1) : :mrgreen: Sounds like we might have got something right here. No point going to the Bulls to watch S and S play every Saturday.

    BTW congrats on the achievements of your u19 team. The Bulls are really going all out to regain control of junior rugby in SA and they seem to be succeeding.

  • Thanks Mr Beet Paul Anthony has a great bunch of young players to choose from.
    One can see the bulls really really want to win the junior under 19 currie cup comp.

    What impresses me is the depth they have this year a guy like wiaan liebenberg has made the step up to under 21 rugby without any problems.

    With rudi van rooyen injured i believe abrie griesel is playing really well.

    What worries me though like last years final the bulls under 19s somehow choke :mrgreen: we always fail to impress in the crunch games. :cry:

    Oh yea watch out for the free state under 19s they can beat anyone thats how well drilled those boytjies are.

  • Well done to Tyler Fisher and Dean Moolman on being selected.
    For me, Tyler has been the KZN schoolboy player of 2011. He is incredibly powerful, very strong on his feet and has scored no fewer than 17 tries for Westville this season. It’s little wonder he made SA Schools.
    Dean is an uncompromising defender. One of the best tacklers at SBR level in SA period.
    Together these 2 formed an outstanding midfield combo in super KZN Craven Week backline that include Stefan Ungerer, Robert du Preez and SiyabongaTom, not to mention the super hotstepper Mbhembe Payi and speedy Lwazi Sithole.

  • @Muzi (Comment 3) : The Vrystaat u19s blow hot and cold. They do however have a super l/fwd combo in Neill Jordaan, Tyron Schulz and Henco Venter.

  • @beet (Comment 6) : Beet they blow hot in the finals dude thats why i would rather play the sharks or lions the free state side worries me :???: they know how to win junior titles.

    Jordaan is a big boy….there are alot of talented players in that side..ex waterkloof skipper thys smit is at 12 with van der merver from gimmies at 13.

    You can include that big full back neil marais is class and you can inlude little kevin luiters.

    Its a great side beet. ;-)

    Happy Mr Ferguson :mrgreen:

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 7) : As Muzi said, Dean Moolman signed a contract with the Bulls – I think as long ago as last year – these days the Bulls scouts hang out at maternity wards to get baby’s thumb print on one of those contracts :mrgreen: They must spend a fortune on junior contract printing costs :mrgreen:

    However I think Dean must be staying. It is highly unusual for a Union to play a schoolboy that is not going to be part of the setup the following year

  • @beet (Comment 14) :

    See my comment above..

    This is why I am rather confused..

    I heard a rumour that Matfield’s daughter is the next big thing to come to the Bulls as well..

  • @Muzi (Comment 8) : Ja I like Neil Marais. Good player.

    But look at the VS u19 results this season. No consistency. They’ll lose to the Sharks at home then beat WP at Newlands. They snuck home against the Leopards after losing to them in round 1.

    Maybe you’re right. They are so unpredictable that they’ll beat WP and the Bulls in the playoffs. :twisted:

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 11) : Tom is still in Standard 9… so he’s not going anywhere for another year at least.

    BTW, am I the only one who thinks it’s hilarious that we have a junior winger called Lwazi Sithole? Does he have a mate called Sibusiso Mvovo?

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 20) : :mrgreen: I’m joking. But don’t bank on Gr.11 players staying put anymore.

    If you don’t believe me ask EG Jansen, Waterkloof or even Westville about their u18 provincial players who’ll be at other schools in 2012. 2 of them will be playing for other provinces as well.

  • @Shark1Fan (Comment 24) : I’m sure Beet will be along soon to answer that!

    I know Ungerer goes to Maritzburg College, Du Preez to Kearsney and Fisher to Westville… I think Tom is also at Kearsney.

  • @Shark1Fan (Comment 24) : They come from all over the country. There is even a player there from Pretoria Boys High School but he was boarder (not a day boy).

    The schoolboys are Ungerer (Maritzburg College Captain), Robert du Preez (Kearsney), Tyler Fisher (Westville and SA Schools), Dean Moolman and Siyabonga Tom (both Glenwood, Tom is SA Schools)

  • @robdylan (Comment 30) : You have to feel for talented kids from schools like these. Unless they are exceptionally good, their chances of making their regional Craven Week teams is infinitesimal, if I can you that word here.

    Voortrekker actually had a reasonably good season this year and even made it onto the R365 top 20 for a week.

  • 7-5 to Province u19 who scored a try on the halftime hooter when Lewies missed a tackle. We will be taking more of a diagonal wind in the face in the 2nd half so will do well to stay in this one.
