DHL WP U19s choose for Bloemfontein

The defending champion DHL Western Province Under-19 team will take on the Cheetahs U19s in their first match of the 2013 Provincial Under-19 tournament on Saturday afternoon.

No.5 lock Jan Uys will lead the WP Under-19s into battle in Bloemfontein, as coach Nazeem Adams looks to build on last year’s successful season for the WP juniors.

With youngsters like Jason Worrall, Michael Haznar, captain Uys and Liam Hendricks in the Province mix, Adams has a powerful core of players to build on in 2013.

“It’s always important to start with a win, but more so, I guess, in this tough Under-19 competition where you tend to learn more about your opposition as the season progresses,” said Adams, whose Class of 2012 drew two games en route to winning the title.

“That said, we know that it’s always a difficult game in Bloemfontein. I know a lot of the Cheetahs players from last year’s Craven Week tournament, but there is still a bit of that unknown quantity heading into your season-opener.

“For us, however, it’s all about opening with a win… that’s our only intention at this stage – to go to Bloemfontein and to win!”

Saturday’s match, which kicks-off at 13h00, will take place at Bloemfontein’s Shimla Park.

The DHL Western Province Under-19 team to take on the Cheetahs is as follows:

15. Jason Worrall, 14. Marcus Geldenhuys, 13. Michael Haznar, 12. Faffa Botha, 11. Michael Mvelase, 10. Chris Smith, 9. SP Ferreira, 8. Devon Nash, 7. Luke vd Smith, 6. Johan de Villiers, 5. Jan Uys (captain), 4. Sebastian Ferreira, 3. Michael van Tonder, 2. Ramone Samuels, 1. Liam Hendricks Reserves: 16. Chad Solomon, 17. Nico Steenkamp, 18. Nathan Gogela, 19. Steven Meiring, 20. Sebastian Negri, 21. Pieter Schoonraad, 22. Tiaan Mouton, 23. Alvino Montjies

Referee: Jaco Pretorius
