WPRFU News Update 6th July

The Western Province Rugby Football Union launched the junior talent identification programme at City Park on Tuesday 4th July.
As part of the efforts of the Bestmed School of Excellence, matches were held throughout the day at City Park in order to expose and develop talented young players in the U15 and U17 age-groups.

Following the provincial age-group trials and selection of DHL Western Province junior representative teams, smaller schools and clubs were asked to nominate players for the programme.

This programme will ensure that promising players who are not representing DHL Western Province at the upcoming national Youth Weeks are identified and developed.

In more development news, how fantastic it was to see Anele Madli, a product of the HUBS Development Program, selected for the U16 WP Grant Khomo Team. Well done young man, you have made your Union very proud indeed!

The HUBS Development teams have been extremely active over the past week. Last week they played a mini-tournament at Florida Park where the official launch of the Athlone Regional Team was announced.

There were also two further representatives from the HUBS program at the trials on Tuesday. We must commend the efforts of the entire HUBS team who are helping change the landscape of rugby development within the Western Cape.

Our WP U18 Girls team got off to the perfect start at their National Week with a 38 – 7 win over Border on Wednesday afternoon. We wish the team all the best as they look to make WP proud.

There will be a Junior Referees course for scholars aged 14 years and older which will take place on 18 and 19 July at Jan Kriel School. Bookings are still open so do not miss this opportunity!
