  • That Tuks team looks very strong. I’d say players from Tuks to watch out for are Clayton Blommetjies, Wesley Dunlop, Lohan Jacobs, Okkie Kruger and Mike Williams. Juan Schoeman (prop) played for SAU20 last year while Lean Schwartz (flank) played for SA Schools in 2009.

  • I can’t understand this one. Grant Hattingh, one of the players of the week last week, a physical lock, was nothing more than a 4th choice lock for WP u21 last season, yet on the occasion I watched him, he can on from the bench and was up for the task vs the Sharks u21.

    Reniel Hugo, 2 year undisputed 1st choice lock for WP u21. One of the most consistent performers at junior age group level.

    Now look at the Maties pecking order :roll:

    I admit that things change, players change, some get better others don’t but still finding this one a little strange.

    I just pray the TUT rugby budget remains in check otherwise we might not have any locks next year.

  • @slammerboy (Comment 16) : Agreed. I’ve mentioned those same points before but to win the u21 CC you need quality. Mike is now available to the Bulls u21. From my own selfish point of view, I’m finding it sad.

    Also got to remember that in the recruitment game you have to offer school leavers a viable alternative to places like Pretoria. If the Sharks become uncompetitive at u21 junior level, this could have far reaching negative effects for bringing talent this way.

  • @beet (Comment 17) : the biggest issue is that the Sharks dont have a representative side in the Varsity Cup, only the Varsity Shield. With no ‘established’ rugby University in Durban how can the Sharks attract decent talent. This will always be a discussion point

    KZN Uni in the Varsity Shield has not won a game this year although they have had some good support at the Peter Booysen Stadium.

  • @slammerboy (Comment 18) : We’ve always attracted good players this way. They VC is just making it that much more difficult. Good evidence of this is that the top 4 ranked locks coming out of school in 2011 all chose to join the Bulls. Very unusual that the Sharks weren’t able to attract a single one of them. Add to this that we’re starting to lose key juniors like Williams before he loses his value to the NRU is distressing.

  • @slammerboy (Comment 18) : also the junior recruiting process has no beginning or end point, its an ongoing quest to have the best possible guys to choose from.

    Just coz we seemingly have an oversupply of locks this year doesn’t mean we stop contracting the best junior locks.

    We signed props like Chadwick and Redelinghuys when we had an overstock of good props on our senior books.

  • @beet (Comment 21) : I dunno about this… seems to me that unless you’re contracting an entire 22 each year at under 19 level, you can’t compete with the Bulls… but where does the money come from to do that and what happens to the 65% of those players who never make it past u21 level?

  • @robdylan (Comment 22) : to follow on from there… is it fair to give a guy a few grand a month when he’s 18 and tell him he’s going to be a pro rugby player? When three years later, it turns out he isn’t going to be one and he’s got nothing to fall back on…

  • Beet, did you see that Francois Du Toit is on the bench for the Lions tomorrow against the Kings and Ruan Botha is starting. Do you think they will step up or is it a bit too soon, particularly for Botha?

  • @robdylan (Comment 22) : Agreed. I think the Bulls will continue contracting the best talent but keeping that talent will be a problem. Thats when teams like the Sharks and Lions and step and offer them contracts. Let them develop elsewhere. I’m quite happy if the Sharks cherry pick a few players here and there.

    What i dont want to see is a guy like Stefan Watermeyer leave SA because of the Bulls recruitment when he could have slotted in at another franchise. I though he could have had a chance at the Sharks as an outside centre / wing

  • @Pat (Comment 24) : Thats interesting. Is Botha starting with Ruan Venter? Are Willemse or Ooshuizen included in the squad? If you want to talk about the talent at lock then look no further than the Lions. All 4 of these guys are 20 or younger!

  • @robdylan (Comment 22) : Rob, we’re in a changing process right now. The outcome will be known in 4-5 years time.

    If the Bulls have first choice to the best players and we’re forced to pick up the left overs, sure we’ll still have a good team but they may end up with the best team.

    The point is we need to challenging for the best talent available every year. This is by no means a guarantee that we’ll get it.

  • @slammerboy (Comment 26) :

    Nope, i think Venter is out injured, I know he got injured in the JWC and think he is still possibly out from that. He is locking with Hendrik Roodt, who I am looking forward to seeing particularly if he is properly conditioned and with a great mentor like Ackermann he could be a real handful! Nope Willemse or Oosthuizen i think will probably play vodacom cup, Stephan Greef is on the bench. Lions for the locks are like buses, seemingly there are none and then suddenly 4 all come along at once!

    As for you comment about the Bulls contracting the best juniors, i dont see it changing. I think that is one of their cornerstone policies to try and contract the best juniors irrespective of their positions. I think more youngsters should follow Goosen’s suit and stay around the Cheetahs or go to a Union that they might get up the ladder quicker. A player like Serfontein for instance is gonna have to sit behind Venter/Olivier and also the same goes with Dries Swanepoel when they might have a better chance at FS.

  • @slammerboy (Comment 25) : Realistically Stefan has been given the opport to prove himself at the Bulls. However was thinking the same thing when watching him over the weekend. I think he’s going to use this 7s contact to bounce back and prove his worth at another Union, perhaps even the Sharks.

  • @beet (Comment 27) : The Sharks need to be seen as a top destination for young talent… that much is a given. What concerns me is why a player would rather sign for the Bulls, along with 3 or 4 others competing for the same position even at under 19 level. That, I suspect, is where you are going with this as well?

    Is it because guys want to sign for the team that has the most successful under 19 side? Are they being short sighted about their senior future in the hope of winning silverware at junior level? I dunno…

  • @Pat (Comment 28) : Thing is just like the Cheetahs found out on Sat, you can bring a pedigree junior enforcer type lock into your mix but if he can’t get up ahead of his man in the lineout, you’re on a hiding to nothing, no matter how good he is at scrumming or cleaning rucks. Talking about Andries Ferreira

  • @robdylan (Comment 30) : Well the latest is that the SA Schools captain joined them for free and they already have 6 contracted u19 juniors on their books before he came.

    Here we can’t even work out who will partner Plank in the backrow yet.

    But my initial point is its sad that we lose a guy like Mike Williams ahead of time. He had at least 1 more year of true value to the Sharks as an u21 player and possibly captain, depending on Jafta’s availability.

  • @beet (Comment 32) : yes… but you can’t blame Mike for leaving now, can you? Reality is, that if he had stuck around, he would have struggled to get a senior gig (with meaningful game time) in Durban next year… not unless Steven, Anton, Jandre or Piet-Steph (or possibly two of the above) were to move on.

  • @Pat (Comment 24) : I think Francois du Toit has been slowly climbing the ranks at the Lions and he must be honing in on Martin B now.

    Ruan has been a kind of PSdT fairytale for the Lions. He was promoted ahead of Willemse and Oosthuizen because he can win ball at 5 in the lineout and I think his athletic ability will continue to give him the edge on these 2 other locks. Ruan Venter offers much of both and I’d say that based on the kind of lock Mitchell favours, he certainly has the potential to get to SR rugby sooner than Botha.

Why do locks feel they have to move around at the age of 20 to get “exposure”…

  • @slammerboy (Comment 39) :

    It could be a monstrous pack considering there is scope to play PS du Toit at flank, although I dont know if Dawie would see it that way.

    @beet (Comment 34) :
    Based on the rather skeleton squad that Mitchell has it could be that a few of these younger guns are roped in quicker. Obviously he will stick with Van Heerden and Vd Merwe at the moment but it will be interesting. If the Lions do play a big enforcer it will be imperative to play Rhodes at the back to give a further option because their Lineout is their real achilles.

  • @robdylan (Comment 41) : True but we know how the Sharks contracts work. Come the end of your u21 days and the budget committee have to make a hard and fast decision about whether you stay on the books or not.

    To me, despite what we have, I thought Mike had the goods to made it work with the Sharks. He’s a big-hearted player.

    But perhaps the lower risk option of the VC coupled with a guaranteed u21 start for the Bulls was all the persuading he needed

    Thats no disgrace. Michael vd Spuy who I like a lot was in the same boat at Grey College – behind Venter and Lindeque who had played 1st team in gr.11 already. + Paarl Gym like Bishops are really good for developing centre talent.

    I’m looking at this and seeing very little other than Flip… what am I missing?

    I can only imagine Mike picked up a vibe here – I’m sure he would have enquired about his future prospects in Durban and laid the Tukkies/Bulls offer on the table. Maybe didn’t get the response he’d hoped for, so packed his bags.

    Wish he was still a lock. It looks like pending the PSdT decision we might have to make do with Saunders, Lewies and Wasserman. We need a big of meat in the 2nd row

  • @robdylan (Comment 53) : Strange hey. Is he going overseas then. Apart from an incident in a game vs Paarl Gym when he was a bit younger, he didn’t even make radar, so I thought it might have been his size that impressed the Sharks. Minnie is a short LH and I imagine Keeble’s son might be close to 1.9m tall

  • @robdylan (Comment 58) : He played with Mike W in u19 in 2010. He was a rotated player tho, not a firm favourite. Came from a JHB school, St Johns I think. A friend of a friend works for his dad in some kind of insurance business.

  • Hats off to the marketing crew. An interview with any WP Springbok from ever is bound to end up being the perfect endorsement for the Varsity Cup. Would love to see an interview with a Sharks rugby official :-)

  • @beet (Comment 61) : I think Bulls still have Marvi Orie and Herman Groenewald on their books as well from the U19s

    From the U21s last year Franco Mostert is playing for Tuks while Gert Eksteen im sure will be available

  • @slammerboy (Comment 67) : Franco was a star for the Bulls u21s last year and I forgot Eksteen who was generally playing ahead of JJ Breed will be back. I don’t think Orie or Groenewald present a realistic challenge to Williams his year. So with Schalk, a little more compo than MW wud have had here in Durbs
