Any youngster dreams of going overseas. Many youngsters love to be part of a successful rugby team. Combined, these two aspirations became reality when 19 Plasie rugby players were included in 3 different international touring sides.
After the successful NTK Rugby Week, hosted by Merensky High School during the April school holidays, several scouts appointed players to compete in 2 international tours during the coming October school holidays.
In the u.19 side, Barend Lombard, JC le Grange, Kevin van den Bergh, Richard Coleman, Martin Theunissen and Noko Malatji have the privilege of touring to Argentina.
The u.16 team will be accompanied by Stefan Corbett, Garreth Spaumer, Victor Swan, Ruben Caroto and Keagan Scholtz.
Another feather in Plasie rugby’s cap is the inclusion of eight u.15 players in the Danie Rossouw touring side after attending the Danie Rossouw Rugby Week at Rob Ferreira High School in White River. Tiaan Tönsing, Jan Naudé, Duan Gubitz, Dawie van Heerden, Danie Potgieter, Wikus Swart, WB Grobler and De Marco Meyer will proudly wave the Merensky flag in London.
