LETTERS PRESIDENT’S LETTER

in recent years, which was the case again in 2014. A total of 36 players, many of them products of Western Province club rugby, were part of the senior provincial structures for the first time. Some of them even received the opportunity to play Super Rugby. This season’s DHL Stormers debutants include the likes of UCT scrumhalf Dylon Frylinck and Maties loosehead prop Alistair Vermaak, who speaks about his experience of playing club rugby on page 22. This is testament to the well-established club rugby structures in this region, as well as the great work our talent identification department is carrying out. You will seldom find club players conditionedtoplayathigherlevelsinotherpartsofthecountry.

A

lthough the DHL Stormers will not qualify for the Vodacom Super Rugby play-offs this season, there are still many positives to take out. One major positive is the emergence of club players playing at higher levels. A number of representatives from local clubs have worked their way into DHL Western Province Vodacom Cup squads

WORD FROM CAPE RUGBY TV

Each year, we pick a Western Province Amateur squad, who have the opportunity to play against other provincial amateur teams. Those selected also have the chance to train with the DHL Western Province Vodacom Cup and Absa Currie Cup squads. I encourage all club players to continue working hard to catch the attention of provincial selectors.You could be next in line.

pride factor which has come back into the homes of the community participants. The channel, which reaches in excess of two million cumulative viewers per month, is a great way for clubs’ sponsors to reach their target market. Media coverage for clubs of course includes various match days, but for many clubs that have stepped up, their jerseys can now be seen on the wall of the Cape Rugby show, and of course in this magazine. This means clubs now have a much greater value proposition to offer sponsors. Essentially, the sponsor wants exposure.

T

he past few years have seen a dramatic shift in the attention for community rugby. The Cape Rugby Show, which flights weekly on Cape Town TV, is an ideal tool to help clubs garner support and sponsorship, not to mention the

CAPE RUGBY MAGAZINE / Issue 4

While clubs need someone to go out find a sponsor, this is made easier by the fact that exposure can now be offered. This is underlined by the fact that WP Club Rugby, the union under which you fall, now has a full media complement. My advice to clubs is to use this to your full advantage. Have a fantastic rugby weekend.

MATCH DETAILS Game: Langa 13 Franschoek 7 Division: Super League C Venue: Langa Stadium

LANGA EDGE FRANSCHOEK Langa held on for a crucial tight win against Franschoek.

I

MARK TITUS FRANSCHOEK COACH

n what was a tough encounter in the howling wind, Super League C log-leaders Langa came out on top 13-7 against Franschoek at Langa Stadium.

The difficult conditions made running rugby very difficult. Ultimately, it was Langa’s ruthlessness on attack and discipline on defence that made the difference. Langa pride themselves on their defensive structures and this game was further testament to that as they offered Franschoek few scoring opportunities. This was a gritty and determined performance, which showed just why they have conceded the least number of points in the division this season. The result keeps Langa’s unbeaten streak alive at the top of the Super League C standings, while it was Franschoek’s first defeat of the season.

It was a very tough game today. Congratulations must go to Langa for their performance but we know we made too many mistakes. We’ll take it from here and look to fix it up. We know our backline is our main weapon, but we need to secure front-foot ball.

JEFFREY WHITELANE FRANSCHOEK CAPTAIN

Langa used the wind to their advantage and scored the points when it mattered. We struggled to get into the game structurally.

We told ourselves before the game that we put the hours in during the week and now it was time to make it count. Most of us have been playing together for a long time now, since U13, so we know each other very well and we play for each other.

MZUKISI QUDUSHE LANGA (MAN OF THE MATCH)

We’re very happy with this result. The spirit of the team is very good and we are made up of youngsters and experienced heads.

ACROSS THE LEAGUES

CLASHES OF THE WEEK Cape Rugby TV picks the standout fixtures across the leagues. Division: Super League A Match: False Bay v Primrose Venue: Phillip Herbstein The Bay have made a solid start to the season and will look to maintain their push for a top-six finish. They host a Primrose side that has opened a few eyes with an exciting brand of rugby under head coach Rito Hlungwani. The visitors have shown themselves to be a dangerous outfit when given space, so False Bay will need to be strong on defence. Division: Super League B Match: Pniel Villagers v Hands and Hearts Venue: Pniel Both sides go into this clash with hopes of claiming a play-off place. Hands and Hearts have had recent success playing sevens and have translated that to the 15-man game, playing an expansive brand of open rugby. Pniel have flown under the radar, but have steadily improved as the season has gone on. A win for either team this weekend will no doubt make the top clubs in Super League B take note. Division: Super League C Match: Franschoek United v Raithby Universals Venue: Franschoek RaithbyUniversalsmadeafantasticstarttotheseasonasthey won their opening five games. Similarly, Franschoek United won their opening four games and look a dangerous outfit, especially at home. The hosts are also one of the league’s highest point-scorers. Expect something special from two of the more well-rounded teams in Super League C. Division: City League Match: Young Stars v Hamediehs Venue: Green Point Track Young Stars have been the team to beat this season and have made their home ground a fortress. The Track is an intimidating place to play and Stars will be counting on that support when they host the in-form Hamediehs. The visitors boast one of the division’s toughest defences and will have to be on top of their game if they are to stop the shooting Stars.

CAPE RUGBY MAGAZINE / Issue 4

Division: Northern League Match: Khayelitsha v Imiqayi Venue: Khayelitsha Stadium Khayelitsha will look for a big win here to bounce back from a less than convincing start to the league campaign. Imiqayi have made a great start and will be looking to keep pace with the league leaders with a win here. Expect some free-running rugby. Division: Southern League Match: Bishop Lavis v Peninsula Venue: Bishop Lavis Fields Two teams at the wrong end of the table go headto-head, looking for a much-needed win that would ease their relegation fears. Bishop Lavis have had a horror start, losing six of their opening seven games and boast one of the most fragile defences in the division. Peninsula have fared a bit better, but will have concerns about their log position. Division: Paarl League Match: Violets v Young Gardens Venue: Daljosafat Sports Complex Violets have proved to be the “best of the rest” in the Paarl League considering the two-horse race that has evolved between Lower Paarl and Vineyards. They have made an impressive start to the season, winning four of their opening six games. They host a Young Gardens side, who have struggled and will need a victory here to maintain their push for a play-off place. Both teams have exciting backlines, so many expect a high-scoring affair here. Division: Simonsberg Region Match: Ilwandile v Lanquedoc Venue: Simonsberg Two teams with something to prove go head-tohead in this must-win encounter. Both sides have been less than convincing this season, and will be hoping for victory to add some positivity to their campaign.

PLAYER PROFILES SINETHEMBA MAPAQA KUILS RIVER

Age: 24 Height: 1.6m Weight: 93kg Position: Wing School: College of Cape Town, City Campus Club: Kuils River

SHAUN MCDONALD UCT

Age: 25 Height: 1.91m Weight: 123kg Position: Loose forward/lock School: Tygerberg High Club: UCT

Kuils River speedster Sinethemba Mapaqa is one of the most talented wings on the Western Province club rugby scene.

Shaun McDonald is recognised as the next player to work his way into the provincial ranks through the club system.

The 24-year-old is more than just pace. He’s a hard-running player, who makes the most of the possession that comes his way. He’s an effective ball-carrier, and has the strength to make an impact on attack and defence.

The versatile forward, who can slot in at lock or loose forward, has enjoyed an outstanding season with UCT, helping the side to the Varsity Cup title and being crowned as the tournament’s Forward that Rocks.

“I offer a team a fresh approach on the field,” Mapaga tells Cape Rugby TV. “Most wings are all about speed and footwork. I work hard to offer more than just that.” Mapaqa is a proud product of club rugby. After impressing for Sunday league teams, he attracted moves to bigger clubs, which paved the way for provincial selection. He’s trained with DHL Western Province and the DHL Stormers senior teams, and made his Vodacom Cup debut this year. He’s also played for the Western Province Amateurs. Mapaqa hopes to cement his place in the provincial ranks in future.

12

CAPE RUGBY MAGAZINE / Issue 4

A player with a huge physical presence, he makes an impact as a ball-carrier, tackler and lineout option. He also comes with provincial experience, having represented DHL Western Province at the U18 Craven Week in 2006 and 2007, before carrying out a stint with the Golden Lions U21s. McDonald has set high hopes for himself. “I made the WP Amateurs in 2013, and got to train with the DHL Western Province Vodacom Cup squad this year,” McDonald tells Cape Rugby TV. “I want to take the next step and make my senior provincial debut in the near future. Then I want to play myself into the DHL Stormers squad.”


PLAYER PROFILES JP KELLERMAN TYGERBERG

Age: 26 Height: 1.98m Weight: 103kg Position: Lock School: Tygerberg High Club: Tygerberg Standing at 1.98m and 103kg, Tygerberg lock JP Kellerman offers his team more than just brute strength. While he’s a general in the lineouts, he’s work-rate and contributions around the park make him an outstanding feature. Kellerman has played for Western Province Amateur and sevens sides after spending his age-group years at Griquas. He’s represneted NMMU and UWC in the Varsity Cup and Varsity Shield respectively, which led to his SA Students sevens selection. He also enjoyed an overseas stint at third-tier club Thonon in France. Tygerberg have suffered a disappointing start to the season, but Kellerman is confident that the club can turn things around. “We’ve had injury disruptions at the start of the campaign, but the players have adapted,”Kellerman tells Cape Rugby TV. “We are a very good team, but we just haven’t clicked yet. Once we do, watch out.” Although Kellerman’s main focus is on his young family and work, he hopes to give Tygerberg the necessary boost, attracting provincial attention in the meanwhile.

DENZIL RIDDLES HAMILTONS

Age: 25 Height: 1.78m Weight: 106kg Position: Loosehead prop School: Jan Kriel, Kuils River Club: Hamiltons Hamiltons loosehead prop Denzil Riddles is determined to play his way into the provincial ranks. He was touted as a talented junior front-rower, representing DHL Western Province at U18, U19 and U21 levels, before going on to play two years of Vodacom Cup in 2009 and 2010. In recent years, he’s been a regular feature in the Western Province Amateurs squad. “My time in the provincial ranks has contributed a lot to my development,” Riddles tells Cape Rugby TV. “My aim is to secure a provincial contract with DHL Western Province. That’s every club player’s dream. If not, I hope to play provincial rugby elsewhere.” Riddles is a strong scummager and tough frontranker, who joined Hamiltons at the start of the 2013 season. After four years at fellow Super League A competitors SK Walmers, he believes this fresh approach has been a good change.


CLUB FOCUS

GUNNING FOR GOLD Lower Paarl are aiming for a hat-trick of titles this season.

T

he new Western Province club rugby league structures implemented this season will put more silverware up for grabs. In the Paarl League, Lower Paarl are aiming to make a clean sweep. This season has been a remarkable one for Lower Paarl, who are undefeated and the top try-scoring team not only in their division, but in the region. “There are three trophies up for grabs… the league, the play-offs and the knockouts. We want to win them all,” says club committee member Thomas du Plessis. Du Plessis is a long-time member of Lower Paarl, with a résumé that stretches back 40 years. Starting as a player before moving into an administrative role, he knows the club structures better than most. Founded in 1937, Lower Paarl was originally part of the Boland until unification in the early 1990s. They began life under the Western Province banner playing in the reserve leagues before a steady ascension up the club rugby ladder. They opted to play in the Paarl league due to financial constraints and have since gone on to become a powerhouse in the division. “We understand that playing regional rugby makes player development difficult,” Du Plessis tells Cape Rugby TV. “We, as the board, made a conscious

16

CAPE RUGBY MAGAZINE / Issue 4

decision some years ago to re-structure the club, so we could increase player movement through age-group levels all the way to the first team.” And the proof is there. One of the club’s top performers in 2014 is fullback Kempten Kika, who emerged from the 3rd XV structures. Several other U19 players have already filtered through to the 2nd and 1st XVs, and the club has had players called up to the Western Province Disas squad in recent years. Du Plessis is immensely proud of the family values that have been instilled in the club and is aware that poverty and personal hardships are a reality in his community. “We have created a support structure for our players. We support them through the financing of togs and rugby gear,” says Du Plessis. “The teams know they have a board and supporters who are always behind them.” Lower Paarl’s recent success, which includes three consecutive league titles from 2011 to 2013, are down to three things according to Du Plessis; a good administration, dedicated coaching staff and strong leaders on and off the pitch. Two of these leaders, Thomas Oswald and Riaan Jordaan, have come back to the club after spending time at the Sharks Academy. With an eye on all three titles this season, who will be able to stop the mighty Lower Paarl?


CLUB FOCUS SECTION

EXCEEDING EXPECTATIONS St George’s have emerged as the surprise package in Super League B.

A

t the St George’s annual general meeting last year, it was agreed that the goal would be Super League A promotion by 2016. Based on this season’s performances, the team might reach these expectations earlier than expected. The Lulu Boys enjoyed an excellent start to the season, starting their Super League B campaign with a five-match unbeaten streak. Despite a narrow 14-6 loss to rivals Sir Lowrians last month, the club is still on track to qualify for promotion. True to form, the club have supported their players’ desires, providing them with everything they need to maintain their title push. This could be a memorable season for a club that boasts a proud history. Founded in 1941, St George’s have seen its fair share of hardships, including a community divide in 1959, when the area was declared an industrial zone. The club has since built itself up and prides itself on community development. St George’s media and public relations officer Lyndon Julius is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to his beloved Lulu Boys. “Our relationships with surrounding schools, NGOs and churches have always been very strong,” Julius tells Cape Rugby TV. “Every year, we have a Kids Day and the players will dress up like Santa Claus and give each child a present. Last year we invited 1200 kids from the surrounding communities to participate.” It is this ethos that has transcended into the club. In 2010, they were named Club of the Year by the Referees Association for their exemplary discipline on the field. “We’re a very well-run club that looks to empower our players on and off the field” Julius says. “Our coaches are Boksmart accredited and we have 15 administrators that manage and oversee every department of the club. The social development sector assists with finding jobs for our

players and gives them as much financial support as our resources will allow.” The players have responded to this outpouring of support with great performances this year. They are very much in title contention and have a well-balanced team. “The average age of our 1st XV is around 22 years old,”says Julius. “We’re a well-oiled team and no one really stands out, although, we do have some talented players. Some of these guys have been playing together for 12 years, which helps .“ Of those players who have impressed this season, flanker Alvino Anthony and veteran flyhalf Morne Adams have steered St George’s in the right direction. With a board dedicated to the club’s wellbeing and players who are passionate and loved by their supporters, don’t be surprised to see the maroon of the Lulu Boys lighting up Super League A in the near future.

Hailing from Kylemore in Stellenbosch, he played for Boland U12s and U13s. After accepting a sports bursary to attend Paul Roos, he went on to feature for DHL Western Province U16s and U18s, and will play his second year at the U18 Craven Week in Middelburg.

ALL-ROUND GROWTH

Rangers, based in Surrey Estate, boast youth structures that see their juniors excel on and off the field. Rangers have established a good junior system, giving their players opportunities to grow as individuals, not just rugby players. With many youngsters coming from disadvantaged backgrounds, youth players are encouraged to be disciplined, responsible and to do well on the field and at school. This has been a youth philosophy instilled within the club since its inception. One example of this is chairperson Nadeema Khan, who’s been in an executive position for over 20 years. “My time at Rangers started when I was five years old, watching my father, brothers and other family

20

CAPE RUGBY MAGAZINE / Issue 4

As a nifty scrumhalf, he brings energy to the team. He keeps defences on their toes with a good running game, and has the passing skills to put his forwards on the front foot and the backline into spaces. His kicking game is also an impressive skill in his arsenal. Jantjies has signed a junior contract with DHL Western Province, and will attend the Western Province Institute after completing high school. “My short-term goals are do well for DHL Western Province at the U18 Craven Week and to make the SA Schools squad,” Jantjies tells Cape Rugby TV. “Then I want to work my way through the agegroup ranks, and hopefully attract the attention of the Baby Bok selectors.” members play for the club,” Khan tells Cape Rugby TV. “My passion for Rangers rugby just grew from there as I accepted several administrative and executive positions. “Yes, the aim is to develop rugby talent, but we also want to develop responsible young people. Hopefully, some of them will be able to run the club in future.” Khan also takes charge of Rangers youth rugby. These structures have produced impressive talent, with former DHL Western Province and Leopards wing Shuaib “Bom” Samaai recognised as one of the club’s proudest products. Rangers continue to receive provincial call-ups, with centre Mujaahid van der Hoven recently making the DHL Western Province U18 Academy squad.


CLUB TO PRO

THE CLUB CONNECTION Cape Rugby Magazine speaks to DHL Stormers and DHL Western Province players who have featured on the club scene.

This week: ALISTAIR VERMAAK PHOTO COURTESY OF: WP RUGBY/CARL FOURIE Which clubs have you currently represented before? I’ve been based at Maties for the past seven years. It’s near to the Western Province Institute, where I spent my time as a DHL Western Province U19 and U21 player. What is your greatest club memory? There are many tough games that come to mind as all clubs go all out and try to get a big scalp against Stellenbosch University. One of the greatest victories that stands out is beating UCT 45-5 during the 2012 Varsity Cup in front of a home crowd. It’s always an exciting rivalry between the two teams as they’re recognised as the top two university clubs in the Western Province region. The players feel the pressure as there’s huge expectations from the students and fans. So being part of the winning team in this game was a great memory. What are your thoughts on Western Province club rugby? I think we have very good structures in club rugby in this region. With over 100 clubs competing week in and week out, there’s a lot of talent on the fields, and the best players get their opportunities playing for the Western Province Amateurs. This

22

CAPE RUGBY MAGAZINE / Issue 4

gives club players the opportunity to work their way into provincial teams. What would your message be to club rugby players? Basically to keep working hard. There are several players who grafted their way through the ranks and worked their way from club level to professional level. Just be patient… your opportunity will come. Whether it’s through consistent form or injury to established players, the coaches will take note of you. Being patient can sometimes be frustrating, but if you give up, you will have no chance of playing at higher levels.

BEHIND THE WHISTLE

YOUNG ENERGY Nathan Barry is one of the most promising up-andcoming referees to emerge from this region.

D

espite being 23 years old, Nathan Barry is already into his sixth year of refereeing.

“My dad, Roderick Barry, was a provincial ref, so I inherited the desire to come one through him,” Barry tells Cape Rugby TV. “I never had any real desire to play the game, but I always wanted to be involved.” While he’s a regular on the Western Province club scene, the young official has already taken charge of Varsity Sevens and Easter School Festival fixtures.

WOMEN’S PROFILE CHANTEL SIECKERS MILNERTON

Barry looks up to another young referee in Jason Jaftha, who’s making a big name for himself on the national stage. “Jason Jaftha is a personal hero of mine. He too broke through at a young age and his career as taken off,” explains Barry. Barry could soon emulate Jaftha’s early success. He’s recently been named in the SARU Contenders squad – a group of 20 referees who have been fasttracked into getting professional contracts. Chantel Sieckers took up the sport in 2002 after being approached by a co-worker at a local hospital. Twelve years on and she is one of the most experienced and respected players on the women’s club rugby scene. She began her career at Goodwood before moving to Maties in 2009. In 2004, she received her first provincial callup and she has been representing DHL Western Province ever since. The lock, who can play among the loosies too, is a strong ball-carrier and is most effective in the tight phases. Her career has come with major setbacks, which makes her achievements even more remarkable. She has endured 10 operations on her knee and has diabetes. Sieckers has been instrumental in the establishment of the Milnerton Women’s side last year. The project swiftly gained traction after her involvement as she used social media to attract attention.

CAPE RUGBY MAGAZINE / Issue 4

“There were a lot of women in the area who weren’t playing rugby,because itjustwasn’tfeasible to travel to Stellenbosch to play for Maties.There was no other club for them,”she explains. Sieckers plans to retire at the end of the season. One of her goals was to make 50 caps for DHL Western Province, which she has already achieved. Her next step will be a career in coaching.

COACH’S CORNER

SEASONED CAMPAIGNER Kuils River have an experienced coach in Lionel Langenhoven, who’s the ideal candidate to keep the club’s Super League A hopes alive. Tell us about your background. As a player, I was based at Hands and Hearts in Kraaifontein, where I started as a schoolboy in 1983 and retired in 1994. So it was an easy decision to start coaching at the club in 1998. In 2009, I moved on to Brackenfell, before joining Kuils River in 2012. It’s been a difficult season for Kuils River, who are at the bottom of Super League A. What are the challenges your club faces? When I arrived, Kuils River was struggling at the bottom of Super League B, and I was given three years to turn things around. I worked hard to bring the team together. I had limited resources, so I had to depend on the core group of players available. The promotion to Super League A came a bit too early. Our notable struggle is depth. You’d see after 65 minutes, the players would fatigue easily, especially against the top five clubs. However, this is a learning curve, and if we can deliver decent performances, like we did against UCT and Hamiltons, we could surprise a few people and survive in this division.

talent identification initiative. This will be my fourth time on the management team; third time as head coach. It’s going to be a tough task because there is so much talent among our clubs! It’s an amazing opportunity for those who are chosen. They get to play against other amateur provincial teams, and are put on to a strict programme, which allows them to train with the DHL Western Province Vodacom Cup and Currie Cup squads. Dylon Frylinck was among the amateurs last year, and he’s since played for the Vodacom Cup side and DHL Stormers. What are your personal coaching goals? I’m taking things in my stride. I’d love the opportunity to coach at a professional level, maybe Vodacom Cup or Currie Cup. I’ve set very high goals for myself, but I know things need to be taken one step at a time.

What are the positives? There’s definitely talent. We just need to maximise on our potential. We kept UCT scoreless for 20 minutes, and we outscored Hamiltons three tries to one in the second half. If we can be consistent on that level of performance, we can turn things around. We’ve had to reset our goals in the short-term; we have to win at least four games and gain 15 log points for any chance of avoiding relegation. What do you make of the new Western Province club rugby structures? It’s a great change for the clubs and fans. For the new clubs in Super League A, it took time to adjust to the high level of professionalism and game management. But if you look at the results now, you’d see the newbies are adapting quickly and the scores are a lot closer. You will take charge of the Western Province Amateurs this year. What do you make of this opportunity? The Western Province Amateurs is a great
