20 Minutes. What a waste and a shame, most clubs would have send him in Pro2 for a year or so.

Four 2019 Junior Springbok World Rugby U20 Championship players and another 10 who travelled to Georgia with the SA U19 team in December were included in a 19-man squad invited to the first of four SA Rugby Academy alignment camps in Stellenbosch in February.

Celimpilo Gumede (flanker), fondly known as “Brick” by his team-mates, Emile van Heerden (lock), Sibusiso Sangweni (looseforward) and Thabiso Mdletshe (prop) all participated in the World Rugby U20 Championship in Argentina last year, while a number of their team-mates made their presence felt in the South Africa U19 team’s successful tour to Georgia, where they won both matches against the hosts.

The camps, which will each feature a different group of players, will play an integral role in the talent identification process for both the Junior Springbok squad and SA Rugby Academy programme.

The World Rugby U20 Championship will be hosted in Italy from Sunday 28 June to Saturday 18 July, with the Junior Springboks set to face England, Fiji and hosts, Italy, in the pool stages.

The SA Rugby Academy programme, meanwhile, will run from 13 March to the middle of May. The first alignment camp, which will be hosted at the Stellenbosch Academy of Sport, will run from Monday, 3 to Thursday, 6 February.

“The SA Rugby Academy programme and the Junior Springboks play a vital role in developing and grooming the top age-group players in the country for first class rugby, and these alignment camps will give us a good idea of the talent available with an eye on selecting these squads,” said Junior Springbok coach Chean Roux.

“The SA Rugby Academy programme has been a great success in terms of developing Junior Springboks, and the fact that all of the players who participated in the World Rugby U20 Championship last year came through the programme is evidence of that.

“These camps will also serve as part of our preparation for the World Rugby U20 Championship later in the year, so this is the start of an exciting journey for us.”

Players invited to first SA Rugby alignment camp (3 to 6 February – in alphabetical order):

Adriaan Alberts (Xerox Golden Lions; lock)
Mthenjane Banele (Xerox Golden Lions; prop)
Morne Brandon (Xerox Golden Lions; flanker) - A hooker afaik
Werner Coetzee (Cell C Sharks; lock)
Dylan de Leeuw (DHL Western Province; lock)
Dewald Donald (Vodacom Blue Bulls; prop)
Sphekahle Dube (Cell C Sharks; prop)
Werner Gouws (Vodacom Blue Bulls; No 8 )
Celimpilo Gumede (Cell C Sharks; flanker)
Hanro Jacobs (Cell C Sharks; prop)
Thabiso Mdletshe (Cell C Sharks; prop)
Lunga Ncube (Cell C Sharks; lock)
Thabo Ndimande (Xerox Golden Lions; flanker)
Wian Otto (Vodacom Blue Bulls; prop)
Evan Roos (Cell C Sharks; No 8 )
Sibusiso Sangweni (Xerox Golden Lions; looseforward)
Uzile Tele (Vodacom Blue Bulls; utility forward)
Cullen van der Merwe (Cell C Sharks; hooker)
Emile van Heerden (Cell C Sharks; lock)

Its the transformation targets....Sharks are killing it lately with bringing talent through....

My son was invited to a cricket tour to India....For him it was 33K for the tour.....there were huge transformation requirements first before he was offered a place after playing for the development side in Worcester last year....

But its a lot of money and time....I would have to go as well which would double the 33K just for Tickets etc....and that wouldn't even include spending money etc....

Yet the transformation kids get it sponsored.

to sponsor that from my company I would have to do a bar turnover just to cover the cost of my son and I..... :roll:

To spend that amount of money, I'd have to know that my son is really good in cricket and be able to make a living from it someday. If you have it laying around, fine, if not, there will be other opportunities. Better to spend money on him when he's older.

Not sure why you would have to go with him tho?

No vokking way I would do it...turned it down...I was just highlighting how transformation is being done.

Besides...India just has slow pitches and all our lads are used to facing fast bowling so I suspect they are really going to struggle with the lack of pace.......and the turn on the ball....

Regarding going with...of course I Would........if it was the West Indies or Aus etc......not interested in Delhi. Remember my kid is only 11.......

Onlu one WP player in that team and a lot of Sharks. I wonder if it has something to do with all the other players being tied up in the Young Guns Varsity Cup



Its the transformation targets....Sharks are killing it lately with bringing talent through....

My son was invited to a cricket tour to India....For him it was 33K for the tour.....there were huge transformation requirements first before he was offered a place after playing for the development side in Worcester last year....

But its a lot of money and time....I would have to go as well which would double the 33K just for Tickets etc....and that wouldn't even include spending money etc....

Yet the transformation kids get it sponsored.

to sponsor that from my company I would have to do a bar turnover just to cover the cost of my son and I..... :roll:

To spend that amount of money, I'd have to know that my son is really good in cricket and be able to make a living from it someday. If you have it laying around, fine, if not, there will be other opportunities. Better to spend money on him when he's older.

Not sure why you would have to go with him tho?



No vokking way I would do it...turned it down...I was just highlighting how transformation is being done.

Besides...India just has slow pitches and all our lads are used to facing fast bowling so I suspect they are really going to struggle with the lack of pace.......and the turn on the ball....

Regarding going with...of course I Would........if it was the West Indies or Aus etc......not interested in Delhi. Remember my kid is only 11.......

Well, transformation has to happen as children of colour weren't giving the opportunity to go in the past.

Surely teachers or coaches are going along for supervising. R 33k is much better than R 66k. Rather see it as development for your son than a holiday for yourself.

Kids that have gone on tour in the past have always had the tour costs covered by the parents. Unless they have sponsorship but that does not happen at this age.

Holiday.... dude its your kid. You are spending 6 hours a day watching them play....
