Is there a brothel in Third Avenue? Strange noises heard late at night sparks brothel speculation in Fairways MELISSA LE ROUX
March for social change 5 5
SOME residents of Third Avenue, Fairways, believe that one of the houses in their street is being used as a brothel. One resident, who wishes to remain anonymous, says “fancy” cars pull up to the house at all hours of the night and day. “We don’t have proof about what is going on though, but something is definitely going on in that house,” she says. A former resident of the road, who also wishes to remain anonymous, says that there were many nights when she heard obscene sexual noises coming from the house. “The noises would start between 22:00 and 03:00. There was one night in particular where there was no doubt in my mind that something non-consensual was happening. If discretion had been used all the previous times it was definitely not

used that night,” she said. However, Grassy Park Police Station spokesperson, Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith, says police have no knowledge of the alleged brothel. “If what is said about the house is true, we would need to do an investigation into the matter and see the circumstances under which the ‘brothel’ is working. “At this point we don’t know anything. If people have any information they need to come forward and let us know about it. It is a very serious matter,” she says. Paul Thomas, chairperson of the Fairways Neighbourhood Watch, says rumours of prostitution in one of the houses have been circulating in the neighbourhood for quite some time now. “We don’t have solid information or concrete evidence to go with these allegations of the happenings in Third Avenue. “We don’t even know which

house the so-called brothel is in. If residents who have an idea of where the house is can give me some kind of clue we will definitely follow up on it, but as of now I have no idea which one it could be,” he says. He adds that the neighbourhood watch has been keeping an eye out for any suspicious activity, but as of yet, nothing has come up. Phillip Bam, chairperson of the Lotus River, Ottery, Grassy Park Residents’ Association (LOGRA), says there have been no reports on the house. “The police haven’t heard about the speculation. However, they will now be giving attention to the matter,” he said. Yaseen Meyer, chairperson of the Grassy Park Community Policing Forum (CPF), also says that he has no knowledge of a house in the road being used as a brothel. “It hasn’t been brought

up in any management meetings, but we will be looking into it,” he says. In order to run any type of business in a residential area, permission needs to be gained from the City of Cape Town. Councillor for Ward 72, Jan Burger, says: “You cannot run a brothel from a private house; it is illegal. If it is a massage parlour, the business owner would need to get permission from the City. The local councillor needs to give input and the community will also have the opportunity to have their say,” he said. He adds that if there is a brothel running illegally in a residential area, it must be reported to the police so that action can be taken against the offenders.

Tale of two landings VIV JAMES will be giving a talk entitled “In the footsteps of Shackleton” at the next meeting of the Historical Society of Cape Town on Monday 9 May at 20:00 at the SA Astronomical Observatory Auditorium, Observatory Road, Observatory. James’ father, Reginald, joined Sir Ernest Shackleton’s 1914 Antarctic expedition, and on the way south their ship was trapped in ice for nine months and subsequently sank. They later reached Elephant Island where they camped for nearly five months under terrible conditions. Two years ago, James sailed from the Falkland Islands as a guest of the Royal Navy and was able to land on Elephant Island where his father was marooned. He will talk about his father’s trip, as well as his own landing on Elephant Island. Entrance is free. Contact Neil on (021) 762-2825 for more information..

DID YOU KNOW that Nelson Mandela was one of the most important leaders of the 20th century? Under his leadership, South Africa adopted one of the best constitutions in the world. Mandela once said: “And so it has come to
pass that South Africa today undergoes her rebirth, cleansed of a horrible past, matured from a tentative beginning, and reaching out to the future with confidence. Our pledge is: never and never again shall the laws of our land rend our people apart, or legalise their oppression and repression.” – (www.ezinearticles.com/619695)

A 23-YEAR-OLD was stabbed in the heart during a scuffle over a stolen cellphone in Parkwood on Sunday at around 11:30. According to Grassy Park Police Station’s spokesperson, Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith, the victim had apparently stolen a cellphone. “The people who the cellphone was stolen from had the wrong information about who stole it. They kept on going to the wrong guy asking him for the phone,” she said. The 25-year-old suspect went to the victim to tell him that he was being bothered about the stolen cellphone. A scuffle broke out between the two – the victim had a screwdriver and the suspect had a knife. The suspect was arrested and he will be appearing in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court today. . At 10:30 on Saturday 30 April, a man was held up at gunpoint by three unknown men and robbed of R7 000 in Delia Road, Grassy Park.

Sebastian says was having trouble with his chest freezer about two weeks before Christmas last year. A friend recommended the owner of AC Refrigeration in Grassy Park, Allan Heuvel. After inspecting the freezer, Heuvel said it needed to be regassed. Sebastian says the freezer started leaking again about 20 minutes after Heuvel completed the job. “I called him immediately, because the freezer started leaking gas. He came back the next day and said that he would need to take it with him to his home. Up until today he has not brought my freezer back,” he says. Sebastian says Heuvel explained what the hold-up was. “He said that as he was pumping more gas into the freezer, the pipe burst. He said that it was rotten. He cut a hole into the freezer so that he could install piping on the inside of the freezer,” he said. An angry Sebastian, who forked out R380 to have his freezer repaired properly, said that
Heuvel has been making poor excuses to explain why his freezer has not yet been repaired. “I called him on numerous occasions, and he keeps on promising me that he will bring me my repaired freezer. “Two months ago I went to his house to demand an explanation. He apologised for taking so long and said that he will replace everything at no extra cost,” he says. When People’s Post contacted Heuvel, he confirmed that he still has Sebastian’s freezer. He says the freezer has internal leaks which are beyond repair. “I have told Keith that I am waiting for a cabinet, because his box is leaking profusely. It is unfortunate that is taking so long, as the one I did get also had a leak in it and now I am trying to get another cabinet,” he said. Heuvel told People’s Post that he will keep in touch with Sebastian and he will try to get his freezer sorted out over the weekend. But when People’s Post checked yesterday, Sebastian had received not word from Heuval and had not received his freezer.

The project’s fundraisers are appealing to shoppers to continue sup porting the initiative by buying branded items for CHOC and other worthy nongovernmental organisations. If you are interested in being a volunteer or in donating any items to the CHOC House or CHOC Lodge, contact Nina on 086 110 6441.

Draft ECD policy out for comment THE public can now comment on the City of Cape Town’s new Early Childhood Development (ECD) policy. The newly revised ECD draft policy aims to address all the aspects of establishing ECD centres and is applicable to all ECD centres. “The new draft policy states the same minimum standards and policy statements should apply city-wide and across different income groups,” says Brian Watkyns, chairperson of the City’s planning and environment portfolio committee (Pepco). The policy provides planning and land use management guidelines for the establishing of ECD centres, health and safety standards, information on the operational management of these facilities and guidance as to what assistance the Department of Social Development will give to these centres after they have been approved. James Vos, councillor and chairperson of
the City’s health portfolio committee, says the policy aims to ensure children’s needs are met at all ECD centres across the Cape metropole. Although the application and registration process for ECD centres is dealt with by the Department of Social Development, various City departments give their input. These departments include health, fire and rescue services, as well as the department of planning and building development management. Comments on the draft policy will be accepted until 17 May. The draft policy can be downloaded at www.capetown.gov.za or can be forwarded by email upon request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Hard copies are available for viewing at all subcouncil offices, district planning, health and social development offices and public libraries.
According to Wilfred Solomons-Johannes, spokesperson for the City of Cape Town’s Disaster Risk Management Centre, the cause of the fire is still unknown.
The councillor for Ward 80, Moses Baskiti, did not know about the fire. He thanked People’s Post for letting him know that the fire had occurred over the weekend. “I will be going out to the area to see what can be done for those who have lost their homes,” he said. People’s Post tried calling Baskiti several times after 18:00 yesterday again, but his cellphone was turned off. The MEC for Social Deve-
lopment in the Western Cape, Patricia de Lille, says she has instructed departmental officials to hand out baby packs, brunches and blankets to those who lost everything in the fire. Trauma counselling will also be offered, where needed. If anyone would like to donate anything to those who have lost their homes in the fire, contact community leader, Nazeer Sonday, on (021) 703-2816.

Joy after mystery food donation Choir debutantes
rock Cape Town TAURIQ HASSEN
THE Cape Malay Choir Board (CMCB) has wrapped up a successful 2011 Malay choir season. In their debut season, the CMCB caught the attention of thousands of local supporters, even recruiting eight new choirs to compete in next year’s competition. Ebrahim Hull, president of the CMCB, says the first year “proved to be a major success”, and their sights are already set on arranging an even “bigger and better” competition. “We are proud of what we achieved this season, and we will raise the bar slightly next year to create the best Malay choir competition for everybody to enjoy,” says Hull. The 2011 competition was split into five segments, Section One, Section Two, the Challenge Cup, the Champions Cup and the Heritage Cup. On 25 February, the Section One winners were the Silver Sounds Singkoor and Kenfac Community Singkoor. Capetonians Singkoor and Jordan Sporting Club won Section Two on 26 February. In the Challenge Cup on 11 March, Playboys Sporting Club and Hamediehs Sporting Club walked away with top honours. The six top choirs in the top three segments were then all drawn into the Champions Cup, which took place on 27 March at the Athlone Civic Centre. According to Hull, the Cham-
pions Cup “was an extremely tight affair”. Capetonians and Playboys ended in first position, tied with the same number of points, with Silver Sounds and Hamediehs, also in joint second position. On 2 April, the teams competed for the ultimate prize – the Heritage Cup – at the Vygieskraal Stadium. Capetonians Singkoor walked away with the top prize, wrapping up the year’s final competitive choir event. “We believe the competition was a great success. The event was organised well, the people showed great support and we can only go from strength to strength,” says Hull. Looking ahead, Hull says the event will take place at the Good Hope Centre next year. “We don’t want to reveal the dates for the next competition, but we can confirm that we have secured the venue for the next competition,” says Hull. An additional feature to their debut season was seeing two lucky winners walk away with a flat screen television and a ticket to go on Hajj (holy trip to Mecca) later this year. “We achieved a lot in our first season, but we hope to achieve a lot more next year, building on our experiences in our debut season. “We say thank you to everybody involved in making this year’s competition such a major success,” Hull says.

Impoverished take to the streets TAMMY PETERSEN
ORE than 1 000 people from 12 areas braved the elements on Tuesday when they marched from Keizersgracht Street to the Cape Town Civic Centre in protest against what they call the “victimisation of the poor”. After handing over a memorandum to a City of Cape Town representative, Communities for Social Change (CSC), which arranged the protest, threatened the council with a 24-hour hunger strike on its doorstep if demands for follow up meetings were not met within the next seven days. The march comes after meetings with City of Cape Town officials failed to produce satisfactory feedback on issues plaguing the poor, Mario Wanza, the organiser of the CSC, tells People’s Post. He says the organisation is “satisfied” with the number of people who came from Hanover Park, Athlone, Manenberg, Mitchell’s Plain, Hout Bay, Heideveld, Lavender Hill, Lotus River, Ottery, Grassy Park, Elsies River and Leonsdale in support of its “Eerste Kos Dan Rent” campaign. “Their attendance showed their commitment to the cause, especially since things were rainy and wet in the city. We showed that a bietjie

The spirit was there and we made our voices heard.” The group chanted slogans as they walked through the city streets armed with banners stating their demands. The memorandum, which was received by an official from the mayor’s office, listed the group’s demands, which include the halting of all evictions; the scrapping of municipal arrears as residents are “deeply in debt and unable to keep up with payments”; that ownership
be given to tenants who have been paying rent to the City for up to 40 years; a change in attitude by the City’s anti-land invasion unit whose “kragdadigheid was experienced under the apartheid government”; improving service delivery and maintenance of community facilities to lower-income areas; and dealing with issues surrounding the upgrade of the City’s triple-storey flats, especially those by people who improved their flats from their own pockets. Errol Davids, the CSC coordinator for Hanover Park, says protest-

ers will keep returning to the Civic Centre until answers are received. “Our demands are simple and not at all unreasonable. What we need is for the relevant officials to listen and address the needs of the communities. If they don’t, we will be back.” Mitchell’s Plain CSC coordinator, Sulyman Stellenboom, says he is “mobilising the people” to bring up the numbers to make a human chain around the Civic Centre later this month. “We are sick and tired of empty promises and blatant lies. Instead of

taking an interest in the needs of the people, our local government is more interested in campaigning and getting re-elected. These are not the type of politicians who look out for the people. They only care about themselves.” Area-specific protests also took place in the past three months. In March, 3 000 residents from Manenberg took to the streets armed with posters asking the City to lower their rent and write off their rental backlog. Also under the banner of the CSC, more than 500 Hanover Park residents took to the streets two months ago and delivered a memorandum to the local rent office demanding that their arrears be scrapped. Last month, Mitchell’s Plain residents expressed their concerns about the scrapping of water arrears when they burnt a cardboard coffin containing hundreds of warning letters issued by the City. Mayor Dan Plato says he has received the CSC’s memorandum, adding that no feedback has yet been given as “they can’t expect it immediately”. “We will respond in due time,” Plato says. He says the action is politically motivated; Wanza is standing as an independent candidate for the position of ward councillor in Manenberg and “everything should be looked at through a political lens”. He declined further comment.

‘Exceptional’ work awarded T
HE City of Cape Town bestowed civic honours on 37 exceptional individuals and Thursday 28 April. The individuals and organisations were honoured for their out-
standing service or contribution to the City and its residents. At the ceremony, City of Cape Town Executive Mayor, Alderman Dan Plato, explained that the awarding of civic honours was important for a city’s progress and
growth. “We bestow civic honours on certain individuals and organisations to acknowledge their varied contributions to our collective development and to encourage them to continue their outstanding efforts. Our support is important be-
cause these contributions will achieve real, lasting development in this place we call home. “As we build our new democracy, we must do all we can to promote the values of civic-mindedness,” said Plato.
Civic honours were conferred in three categories this year, namely Signing of the Civic Honours Book, one of the highest accolades that the City can confer on its residents, Honorary Title of Alderman and the Mayor’s Medal.

Die Duine Primary covered for winter THE Swiss-based non-profit organisation (NPO) Hope 4 Kids has sponsored school tracksuits and rain ponchos for 10 learners from Die Duine Primary School in Lotus River. Johan Greeff, co-founder of Hope 4 Kids, says: “The NPO unofficially started in 2000 when my Swiss wife, Elvira, was pursuing a five-month teaching practical in Cape Town. During this time she came in contact with many needy people – a contrast from home life. “She was determined to help, so when she returned home she did what she could to raise funds; she even sang with her students.” Today, funding mostly comes from Swiss businesses and private individuals, adds Greeff. He explains that the NPO was registered in 2003 and since it needed help identifying local youths in need, it teamed up with Free Wheel-
ers’ chairperson, Trevor Knowlden, who later became Hope 4 Kids’ executive officer. “Free Wheelers is an NPO focused on getting the youth off drugs and onto bicycles,” says Knowlden. Greeff says hope is paramount. “We all undergo challenges, but our goal is to show that hope can always be found and that less than desired circumstances can be overcome.” Margot Kiewit, principal of the school, thanked the donors: “There’s a saying I hold dear, which is ‘Your treasure is where your heart is’. “When I think about this I realise that your hearts are with the children – tomorrow’s leaders. Helping them replace their mended clothing with new garments, especially as winter approaches, helps give them a renewed sense of dignity.” To donate money to Hope 4 Kids, contact Trevor Knowlden on 072 108 2849.

Protect and serve THE South African Police Service (SAPS) is under scrutiny after violent attacks, two of which ended in the death of civilians by shooting. The most recent attack occurred on Saturday, when police were caught on CCTV kicking a Pretoria man in the stomach, hitting him in the face, and trampling on his head. After this assault, the man was arrested for being in possession of an unlicensed firearm, pointing the firearm and resisting arrest. In Woodstock, a sports bar owner and his patrons were allegedly manhandled and assaulted by the Woodstock police at the Easter weekend. President Jacob Zuma, who has expressed “concern” about excessive violence used by SAPS members, called on police to rethink their strategy in containing volatile situations. This came after the death of Ficksburg resident Andries Tatane, who was assaulted and then shot in the chest by police during a service delivery protest in April. Last week, Kempton Park resident Jeanette Odendaal was shot dead by an officer outside a police station after she bumped a parked police car. Much is left to be desired when it comes to the expressed sentiment of the police’s top brass on the point of excessive use of force by officers in the execution of their duties. National Police Commissioner, Bheki Cele, said that recently reported instances of police brutality are mere “isolated cases”. But incidents of excessive violence hardly seem sporadic, with the steady influx of reports at community newspapers alone about officers exerting excessive force. Police brutality sabotages attempts by the force to build stronger relationships with the communities they serve. And a breakdown in trust works against efforts such as the establishment of community police forums and social crime prevention initiatives. Our men and women in blue must always be mindful to first to do no harm.
An Easter blessing EASTER eggs are a gift that children just love to receive because of the chocolate and the different shapes they come in, but it is no more a cheap commodity and to buy for a large family will set you back a few rands, never mind for all the children of an informal settlement. This was my dilemma, but once again prayers and faith in God came through like a sparkling river in a very dry desert. On Good Friday late afternoon, my shepherd at the Ottery Baptist Church, Pastor Patrick Thomas, arrived at my home with three carrier bags filled with all shapes and dare I say flavours of Easter eggs which a member donated. The excitement of such a blessing was so great that we decided to hand out the Easter eggs on the
Shoes in time for winter IN RESPONSE to your letter from Roekshanah Muller regarding the issue of school shoes at Buck Road Primary School in Grassy Park, I would like to firstly thank you for making this much-overlooked social issue known to the public through Roekshanah’s letter of appeal. I am an employee of the Bobs for Good Foundation in Cape Town, and read the appeal with interest after recently proposing to provide school shoes to three other schools in the area where the learners suffer the daily plight of emotional and physical torment because they do not have school shoes. Upon the publication of the letter, my inbox was also flooded with acknowledgements from your
23 April to the children of Freedom Park informal settlement. Accompanied by my wife Tina and a friend Patricia Alberts, we drove in my white steed (beach buggy) with the Easter eggs to Freedom Park, and called the children to come and receive the Easter eggs. What a sight and sound when about 50 kids milled around us with open hands, but we only handed out the Easter eggs after we prayed and thanked God for the gifts received. A person had to be there to see the faces of these precious children as we handed out egg after egg. This made our Easter so special, and thanks to the donor who gave the eggs. It’s just a pity you were not with at the handing out early Easter ceremony. KEITH BLAKE Ottery
readers who kindly took the time to write to our foundation for assistance. After contacting our associates in the Department of Education and Roekshanah herself about the social circumstances of the learners at Buck Road Primary, the Bobs for Good Foundation is delighted to announce that we will ensure that the learners who do not have school shoes will very shortly walk tall with pride and dignity in brand new leather and locally-made school shoes. Our foundation looks forward to visiting Buck Road Primary, and aims to have the school shoes fitted on the needy children by the end of May, in time for winter.

Local issues . Despite people driving with speed on Strandfontein Road, how many times are pedestrians at fault? Come on, I’ve come across many accidents on that road and then many of the pedestrians smell like they have been drinking – and that is a dark road. So why not start educating these people on how to use the roads? And please don’t get me wrong, I’m against speed. . Regarding the construction of new classes at Plantation Primary School: Vusela Construction, why are you using the labour force that was employed to work on the Marble flats? Is that not against the law? Please investigate. General . Just wondering how many others are paying Telkom for no service in return? I have been without service since November. I have even paid rental for the year, yet to this day there has been no service. Is there anyone else getting such lousy treatment? .

Task team to probe Dallas tours BRIAN GAFFNEY
LL Dallas Cup tours for youth footballers to America over the past decade – including the controversy-dogged tours coordinated by Basil Palanyandi since 2009 – will be investigated by an independent task team cochaired by two advocates. This was confirmed by the Safa Cape Town president, Norman Arendse, yesterday (Monday) in the wake of the 2011 tour which went horribly wrong for the 25-person travelling party – which included 17 under-15 footballers. The task team, which will be cochaired by advocates Charles Simon and André Coetzee, have been briefed to investigate the matter with urgency once they have received the relevant submissions from parents and other stakeholders in the tour. Arendse said the Safa CT has also recommended that “pending the outcome of the task team’s findings, Palanyandi must be suspended from all Safa CT activities, including his executive committee position [head of fixtures]”. He said that Palanyandi will be afforded the opportunity to explain his “side of the story” regarding the Dallas tours when he meets with
the task team. Palanyandi has coordinated the tours on his own since 2006, after they were run by the old Safa Western Province since 2000, with him on board at the time. Since 2006, he continued to present the tours to locals and to the Dallas Cup organisers as the “Archbishop Desmond Tutu Ikapa United” tour, implying continued endorsement from Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s office. Local youth footballers’ dreams of competing in the 2011 international showpiece were shattered when they were told they had been disqualified for not meeting the registration deadline, and for failing to have all members present for the opening day on Sunday 17 April. The tournament organisers instead arranged friendly matches for the touring team in Dallas. The tour that never got off the ground was bedevilled by a delay in the issue of visas by the American Consulate in Cape Town. According to irate parents that had called People’s Post, Palanyandi had blamed the consulate for the delay. The parents, however, pointed fingers at Palanyandi for “not fulfilling his duties correctly and timeously”. The tour debacle took another controversial turn on Monday 19

April when Dan Vaughan – the aide for Archbishop Desmond Tutu – informed this newspaper that the Archbishop’s office was no longer responsible for the Dallas tour. “About two years ago, the Archbishop’s office, following inquiries to the office, became concerned that the Archbishop’s support of the Dallas tour was being misrepresented and that it was not receiving financial reports regarding the fundraising”. Vaughan said that no further support by the Archbishop could be assured until Palanyandi had provided audited financial statements. “Archbishop Tutu’s support for the tours was accordingly with-
drawn and he has not endorsed the project since then ,” said Vaughan. There was a heated confrontation between some parents at Cape Town International Airport when Palanyandi and the tour group returned from Dallas on Thursday. Carla Goodman from Camps Bay, whose son was included in the under-15 touring squad, called on Palanyandi to call a meeting to address the parents’ concerns surrounding the ill-fated tour. Palanyandi said he would provide parents with his 2011 tour report at the offices of the LFA Cape District at the William Herbert Sports Complex on Wynberg this
past Friday at 18:00. However, when this newspaper contacted Palanyandi yesterday (Monday), he said he was unfortunately able to get the necessary information from the LFA Cape District office, which he said was locked. He, however, met the parents of the junior players at a clubhouse on the complex – where it was decided to reconvene the report-back meeting for Friday 6 May in Wynberg. Palanyandi said he was unaware that a task team had been appointed to investigate all Dallas Cup tours. He was not prepared to comment on any tour issues until after the meeting on Friday.

Stormers brace for the Crusaders the most eagerly-anticipated matches of the tournament. And, following an emphatic 32-12 victory over the Sharks, their closest rivals in the South African conference, the Stormers will be looking to replicate the performance when they take to the field this weekend. The Stormers shook off their label as a defensive team when the men in navy-blue-andwhite ran in four unanswered tries and picked up a valuable bonus point. Even the loss of flyhalf and leading point scorer, Peter
Grant, could not deter the Stormers from playing all-round good rugby – and young LiCLASH of the titans can be expectonel Cronjé stepped up to the plate and did ed when the DHL Stormers take on a fine job replacing the Stormers pivot. the Crusaders in the Vodacom SuInside centre, Jean de Villiers, was impresper Rugby competition at DHL Newlands sive and scored one of his side’s four tries. on Saturday. His performance also earned him the man of the match award.

The excellent play by his side impressed head coach, Coetzee. However he maintains that they can still improve their current form. “It was a good win, and I am satisfied with the outcome – we scored three tries in the first 25 minutes of the match,” he said. “I felt that we stood up physically and again did well on defence. We have been criticised for not scoring many tries, but if we are preventing the other side from scoring tries, I am happy. “However, we still have a lot to work on – we created several opportunities which we did not capitalise on. In a play-off match you need to take such opportunities.” Following the victory over the men from Durban, the Cape side extended their lead on the top of the South African conference log, and have moved to second place on the combined log. The Blues from New Zealand are on top with a one-point lead. The men from Canterbury in New Zealand will be looking for revenge, after their last visit to Newlands ended in a recordbreaking 42-14 win in favour of the Stormers. The current crop of Crusaders players has impressed throughout the season, despite injuries to vital players such as captain, Kieran Read, Daniel Carter and stalwart, Richie McCaw.

the Western Force in Perth on Saturday. Several battles can be expected, with the most exciting being the battle between the centre pairings of De Villiers and Jacque Fourie, and Sonny Bill Williams and Robbie Fruean. It will be Williams’ first match in South Africa, and he will undoubtedly live up to the hype. His ability to draw defenders on attack, as well as off-load within the tackle has been the talking point of the rugby world this year. Williams, a former rugby league player, has lived up to the expectations of the rugbymad New Zealand population – can step (thanks to his heavyweight boxing background), spot gaps and is no slouch on defence either – and the partnership between him and Fruean has been groundbreaking this season. An attacking game plan can be expected from the men in red-and-black – they have scored 36 tries this season while the Stormers have only managed to score 16. The men in navy-blue-and-white must ensure that their defensive plans – their pride – are in tip-top form when they take the field.
