The U19 and U21 teams to face WP on Saturday have been announced.

The U21 team backline has the Cronje brothers at scrumhalf and flyhalf, which should make for some entertaining interplay as they know each other so well. Piet Lindeque from the U19 team retains his place in the U21 backline and continues to impress. Kyle Cooper gets a run this weekend with the U21 and should run WP to bits.

U21 team:

15. Wynand Pienaar
14. Mark Richards
13. Piet Lindeque
12. Dwayne Jenner
11. Rosco Speckman
10. Guy Cronje
9. Ross Cronje (Captain)
8. Lubabalo Mtembu
7. Cameron Dunlop
6. Jaco Otto
5. Peet Marais
4. Jandre Marais
3. Francois Hanekom
2. Kyle Cooper
1. Dale Chadwick


16. Hannes Snyman
17. Julian Redelinghuys
18. Meyer Swanepoel
19. Daniel Ojiambo
20. Cobus Reinach
21. Willie du Plessis
22. Howard Mnisi

U19 Team:

15. Jaco van Tonder
14. Kieran Goss
13. Kyle Wilkinson
12. Heimar Williams
11. Mandla Dube
10. Ryno Olivier
9. Dwayne Kelly
8. Siseko Jafta
7. Rynardt van Wyk
6. Francois Kleinhans
5. Nick Dodgen
4. Mike Williams (Captain)
3. Nick Schonert
2. Adrian de le Rey
1. Danie Mienie


16. Gideon Bruwer
17. Riaan Basson
18. Paul Saunders
19. Peet Coetzee
20. Reef Naiken
21. Kayde Fisher
22. Jacques Lombard
23. Alwyn Janse van Vuuren


  • Like that U21 centre combo, and hope Ojiambo gets a good run out: the second Beast.

  • I would have

    20. Cobus Reinach
    21. Willie du Plessis

    starting and the Cronje brothers on the bench.

    The game moved much quicker once Reinach came on and du Plessis, though he’s maybe not as talented as Cronje put the players around him into space more than both Cronje brothers did.

  • @Charlie (Comment 6) : Ons U19s doen goed, die U21s is klas maar die groot manne weet nie so mooi nie.

  • I agree with “Letgo” that Jaco Reinach and Willie du Plessis should be starting for the u/21’s. I think the Cronje brothers are a bit over rated.

    The u’19’s had 2 unfortunate losses in consecutive weeks. I think this can be the weekend that they can bounce back. I think the secret weapon is at no 9. He has the potential to turn the game around.

    The big Sharks have everything going for them in the season so far and I think that they can pull this one off.

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 9) : I guess I am a fan of his but also a fan of the rest of the team. They really have the players to end in the top two or three of the competition.

  • I’m getting contradicting results for the Bulls game, one where they lose 40 – 39 and the other where they win 39-38…

    …which one is true????

  • @ Kaygee

    I agree with you, both these teams have a lot of potential and can easily get to the top of their respective divisions.. Let’s hope we can beat WP 3 – 0 on the day..
