Wagenstroom chases Wylie’s record

Wildebeest winger Frank Wagenstroom has left Durban and will represent the Valke for the remainder of the season. The former Free Stater only joined the Sharks at the beginning of 2008, having played for the Free State Cheetahs in last year’s competition.

Frank Joseph Wagenstroom, at 1.8m and 93kg certainly isn’t the biggest winger around, but has always been a contender at age group level, being picked from the Tygerberg first team to represent the SA Academy and SA Schools teams while still a schoolboy. He represented Western Province at all age groups, as well as winning caps for South Africa at under 19 and under 21 level.

His last appearances in WP colours were in the Vodacom Cup of 2005.

In 2006 he moved on to the Cheetahs, where he stayed for two years. He again represented South Africa at under 21 level that year wwhile playing for the Free State junior side. His seven Currie Cup premier division caps were earned the following season, also for the Cheetahs. He played no Super 14 that year, though, having to make do with a spot in the Free State Vodacom Cup team.

2008’s move to Durban promised much for the 22-year-old but alas, delivered little. He showed up well in a pre-season friendly against his former team-mates, but turned in an absolute howler in the opening Vodacom Cup game of the season. That performance pretty much put the kibosh on any hopes Wagenstroom had of being called up to the Super 14 group and he struggled to establish himself in the Wildebeest team this year, only representing them on a handful of occasions.

Although a member of the Sharks wider training squad for the 2008 Currie Cup, Wagenstroom has never managed to get into the matchday squad, having fallen behind the likes of Wes Bodmer and Chris Jordaan, who are both uncontracted club players, in the provincial pecking order.

Wagesntroom made his Valke dΓ©but of the bench against WP last week at his one-time home-ground, Newlands. He will be hoping that with a few good performances, he may be able to force his way into the Bulls training squad for Super 14 2009. So far Wagesntroom has represented three of the big five. He has only two to go and he’ll match Wylie Human’s somewhat dubious record.

  • the amazing thing about Wylie is that he’s actually been CONTRACTED to each of the five big unions at some stage.

    Adi has only ever been contracted to the Valke and the Sharks. He was drafted into the Bulls Super 12 squad. Also, I don’t believe he ever played for the Cats, but I could be wrong

    I am SO glad you said that on this website becasue i wasn’t able to reply to you on the dark side when you made a similar comment the other day. πŸ˜‰

    Adi has only played CC for TWO teams according to SA Rugby.

    He joined the Valke in 1999 where he stayed until 2004 where he joined the Sharks and remains to this day.

    In 2001 & 2002 he was DRAFTED into the Bulls S14 side for the duration of the tournament but still remained with the Valke. In 2003 he was again DRAFTED into the Cats S14 side for the duration of the tourny but again still stayed with the Valke.

    I have no idea where this Adi is a provincial drifter idea comes from. In 10 years of rugby since his provincial debut he has only signed for two different provinces.
