    I had to correct others that they didn’t seperate the Union from the players name.

    i think the golden belongs to the Lions in the next line. 😀 let me fix that.

    Would love to know the story behind that name. Name doesn’t seem very Afrikaans yet the surname is 100% Afrikaans

  • 4 Paarl Gimmies in this squad, two fatties Rossouw de Klerk from the Brutes now & the U19 still in 2009 Ruaan Smith, also two midfielders, Stokkies Hankom’s son Nicolas & the talented Johann Sadie. One Paarl Boishaaier Hartzenberg.

    Pretty glad Ruaan isnt wearing the Convict jersey.

  • I’ve never met anyone with the surname Hartzenberg. 🙄

  • Comment 18, posted at 17.12.08 16:21:40 by McLovin Reply

  • @McLovin (Comment 18) : Hartenzenberg is actually a coloured player, following in Guthro Steenkamps footsteps. Big losie combo lock. All the talent but a lazy Galpil.

  • Comment 19, posted at 17.12.08 17:12:05 by PaarlBok Reply

  • Rossouw de Klerk a hard worker and Gimmie captain in 2007. Still sad we lose him to the Brutes. Johann Sadie very talented and got provincial colours for Boland in 5 different sports as a U13 and Nicolas Hanekom the son of Stokkies. Think all of them still in the Stormers squad at the moment.

  • @PaarlBok (Comment 20) : Rossouw de Klerk? What is it with those okes and the two surname thing? Fourie du Preez? Botha Rossouw? Schutte Bekker… it just goes on!

  • Myself know Rossouw’s parents quite well. His mum was a teacher at KleinGim. Myself quite upset he went to the brutes but his dad say” Thats the fatty factory” and trust me he was a onder Hoofseun at Gimmies and have some great leadership qualities. Write that name down, in Paarl they saw him as a future Bok captain.

  • @robdylan (Comment 21) : Usually thats a cobination of the mum and dad’s surnames. Its a Boer habit to go that route. Twee vliee met een klap sort off.

  • Comment 23, posted at 17.12.08 17:30:43 by PaarlBok Reply

  • @PaarlBok (Comment 23) : Verstaan.

    Pity that so many see Bruteville as the best place to learn frontrow play. Last time I checked, the Sharks had the best front row in the country.

  • @PaarlBok (Comment 23) : That makes sense. In fact one of my cousins has my surname as a middle name. 🙂

  • Comment 26, posted at 17.12.08 17:50:14 by McLovin Reply

  • Think a Cronje/Ebersohn/Sadie/Stokkies combo will be great

  • @robdylan (Comment 31) : Look like Sauls like to pick only one twin. Myself have seen this in the past when the selectors pick the wrong one. Always safer to pick both.

  • Paarlbok, Do you have any contacts within the Boland Athletics Union?
