Congratulations to our athletes representing South Africa at the 2018 Coca-Cola Craven Week and Academy Week!
Tsetse Kawaya and Mickael Williams are both playing for the SA LSEN team throughout this week at the Academy Week tournament in Paarl.
A third national LSEN athlete, Reno, has also trained with and represented Connect against a touring side from the UK.
Man of The Match
Micky even sealed a Man of The Match award on Wednesday.
Our speedster scored a pair of tries as the boys won 26-22 against the Valke.
On Monday they were edged out in a tight opening fixture by Zimbabwe, with Tsetse and Reno making their mark.
If you’re heading to Paarl Boys’ High this week, make sure you head along to cheer our boys on in their final fixture.
This experience is a reward for the work they have put in to make the Western Province LSEN squad, before impressing at the national tournament a couple of weeks ago.
Mickael and Tsetse joined our other athletes at Western Province’s recent capping ceremony in Cape Town.
Also receiving his cap was our Under 16 hooker Lukhanyo “Boepa” Vokozela, who represented Western Province at the recent Grant Khomo Week in Kimberley.
Representative selection is a springboard for all three as they head into off-season later in the year.
We’ll be working intensively with our athletes throughout the summer at our High Performance Centre in Burgundy Estate, Cape Town.
The boys have done themselves proud in recent weeks and we’re committed to providing them with the quality resources and opportunities they need to help them reach their full potential, on and off the rugby pitch.
