Captain's Profile: Hanro Liebenberg

Another derby is upon us and Drostdy captain Hanro Liebenberg is hoping his side can make his school and the greater community proud.

As brother to former Baby Bok captain Wian Liebenberg, Hanro has some big boots to fill but he has been playing some devastating rugby this season and is hoping for that recall to the Boland Craven Week side.

"We had trails yesterday against Western Province but it didn't go that well for us but hopefully I can make the Craven Week side again this year," Liebenberg said.

The secret, it seems, is that you do not take this derby game as a special match – you treat it in the same way you would treat any other game.

"We have been taking every game step by step and this game is no different.

"Our team will not go into this game any differently and we want to play to our structures and not look at this game as a Classic Clash," Liebenberg added.

From what Liebenberg has said the Drostdy season has been fairly up and down and they have battled to get a consistent run going.

"We had a great start to our season but from then we lost a bit of rhythm in the middle of the season but hopefully we can put that right this weekend," he said.

A Classic Clash is always a momentous occasion and, although, they are trying to downplay the significance it is difficult to ignore it.

"This weekend against Worcester is a massive game for us, there is a lot of fuss made about it and we hope that we can make the school proud when we play.

"We cannot underestimate Worcester because they will come at us with everything they have so we will go into the game on Saturday as if we are playing a new team," he mentioned.
