Lukhanyo Vokozela

Lukhanyo – Boepa to his friends – is one of three Connect high performance athletes on rugby bursaries at the Western Cape Sport School in Cape Town, alongside Lamla Nunu and Lutho Dyalvane. All three boys are sponsored by the Woodstock, Cape Town, franchise of Timbercity. Join them in supporting a Connect high performance athlete.

Boepa has been involved in Connect Sports Academy since 2015. In that time, he has adapted superbly to Connect’s training regime and is one of our most consistent, high-performing athletes.

Capable of playing at tighthead or loosehead prop, as well as hooker, Boepa’s power, tenacity and sheer athleticism sets him apart from his peers in the front row. Don’t be surprised by the unlikely sight of him kicking for poles, either.

Boepa has a solid head on his young shoulders and is an exciting prospect as the possibility of making it as a professional draws nearer. Whatever you do, though, don’t tell him that he looks just like Springbok Trevor Nyakane.

We’d love for you to sponsor one of our high performance athletes, or make a direct donation to support the work that we do.
