SA Schools Leadership Announced
SARU has announced that, as expected, Adrian Alberts will captain the SA Schools team in its tournament with England, France and Wales, which starts this week.
Alberts, a lock, played for SA schools last year and this year has captained Paarl Boys’ High and Western Province, the best performing team at Craven Week.
The team’s vice-captain is Muzilikazi Manyike, mostly a centre, who is Jeppe’s head boy this year. He played for the Golden Lions at the Under-13 Craven Week, then for two years at the Grant Khomo Week and then for two years at the Craven Week.
The coach of the team, Sean Erasmus, has just finished a wonderful stint as coach of Paarl Boys’ high and so will be used to working with Alberts.
Erasmus said: “Adrian and Muzi both bring leadership experience to the squad and I’m excited to see what they bring to our team in the coming weeks.
“It’s going to be a tough series against Wales, England and France, and these two players, with the support of the other leaders in the squad, will have a big task at hand.
“But they’ve already taken the responsibility since we got together over the weekend and the excitement in the squad is palpable.”
