Western Province pick Boepa & Lamla for Iqhawe Week squad

Congratulations to our two high performance athletes, who will represent their region against the rest of SA in Johannesburg!

Congratulations to our high performance athletes Lukhanyo ‘Boepa’ Vokozela and Lamla Nunu, who have both been called up to represent their province at Iqhawe Week!

The boys will travel to Johannesburg to take on their Under 15 counterparts from the rest of South Africa between 2-5 October at the Bill Jardine Stadium.

This great news comes hot on the heels of two of our U13 athletes, Akha Mjawule and Ilitha Ntinini, being selected for the Western Province 7s squad. They will play in the national tournament in Bloemfontein from 29-30 September.

Both of our young forwards have made huge strides since playing their first rugby at our open training sessions in Khayelitsha, Cape Town, in 2015.

Since January 2017 they have attended and played their rugby for the Western Cape Sport School in Kuils River. 

WCSS reached the final of the national Top Schools rugby competition in Durban earlier this year, as well as shocking the mighty Paul Roos at the recent UR7s Schools Invitational in Cape Town, with Boepa putting in a virtuoso performance.

Connect is committed to providing them with everything they need to maximise their potential, on and off the field, as with all of our high performance athletes.

We are grateful for the support of this ambition by Timbercity’s Woodstock branch in Cape Town, who sponsor Boepa, Lamla and a third of our athletes, Lutho Dyalvane.

If you want your brand or company to be associated with this kind of awesomeness, get in touch now.

All the best for Jozi, boys… we’re right behind you!

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.
