Province lure young gun back from France
NEWS: Western Province is securing its future by investing in its youth.
Talented flyhalf Kade Wolhuter and impressive loose forward Keke Morabe have both committed to WP in a major boost to the union’s youth stocks.
Wolhuter is a product of Paul Roos Gymnasium and represented Western Province at youth level, starring in the 2019 Craven Week before signing with French club Montpellier last year.
The 18-year-old returns to the Cape where he will bolster the backline resources and grow further while playing for the union that nurtured his talents as a junior.
Morabe is an imposing No.8 who has represented SA Schools for the last two years and captained the Griffons at the 2019 Craven Week.
A loose forward with an exciting blend of power and pace, Morabe will get the opportunity to train alongside some of the best in the world when he makes the move to Cape Town.
Stormers coach John Dobson said that both Wolhuter and Morabe will add valuable depth as they develop their respective games in the coming years.
“We know that both these players are highly talented, it is now up to us to give them the tools that they need to realise their considerable potential.
“It is very encouraging that these two talented youngsters have chosen to take their careers forward at WP Rugby and our coaches are looking forward to working with them and developing them both as rugby players and young men,” he said.
