Congratulations to our post-school apprentices, Flash Kawaya and Joshua Visagie, who are award winners at the end of the 2019 rugby season.
The pair have been representing Union Milnerton Under 20s throughout the campaign.
And Flash was named back line player of the year at the club’s awards night last weekend.
Josh, meanwhile, was rewarded for being the top point-scorer for 2019.
Access to resources, access to opportunities
Our duo were among several other Connect athletes playing for Uni Mil this season, as part of our commitment to providing playing opportunities for young athletes on leaving school.
Flash and Josh have been combining their athletic progress with work experience and personal development at our Cape Town training base, Burgundy High Performance Centre.
Thank you to Isma-eel Dollie and everyone at Uni Mil for partnering with us during 2019.
