Jeppe Boys players make it to the Lions’ den

Jeppe Boy player, Tyrone Green, makes his way to the try line during the U/18A team's game against the Valke recently.

17 Jeppe High School for Boys rugby players were selected for the Golden Lions schools teams in preparation of the SA Rugby Inter-provincial Youth Week.

The two age groups, U/18 and U/16, are currently playing warm-up games against other franchises.

The school’s media liaison officer, Jeanrique Snyman, said from this group, seven are part of the U/18A team and five made it to the U/16A team.

He said this is the second highest number of players from one team.

He said that the U/18 team will be playing in the Craven Week and the U/16 team will play in the Coca Cola Grant Khomo Week next month.

”During the warm up games, the Golden Lions U/18 team beat the Leopards, drew with the Blue Bulls and lost 15-14 against the Valke,” said Snyman.

He said during the Valke game, the Jeppe Boys were on-form.

”The centre, Wandisile Simelane, scored one of his side’s two tries and kicked two conversions. The prop, Henry Sickens, was impressive in the scrums while Tyron Green was a handful on attack and very solid in defence,” he said.

Snyman said the Lions teams for the inter-provincial week has not been finalised yet.

”The U/18s will play a KwaZulu-Natal team at the Northern Unions Day in Vanderbijlpark on June 27. I am not expecting too many changes in the current squad,” he said.

Snyman said the U/18A team will play in the Coca Cola Craven Week competition in Stellenbosch in July.

“The U/18B team will be at the National Academy Week in Vanderbijlpark while the U/19 team will play in a Northern Union tournament in Potchefstroom. The U/16’s will be at the Coca Cola Grant Khomo Week in White River,” he said.

Jeppe Boys players who have been included in these teams are:

U/18A – Ricky Ngwabarra, Henry Wickens, Colin Thubadi, Wandesile Simelane, Tyrone Green, Lehlogonolo Naka and Hacjivah Diyamani.

U/18B – Ricky Mangwiro.

U/19 – Andile Ngcobo.

U/16A – Musi Manjike, Jame Msimangu, Mpho Tsamela, Vumile Nameka and Sipho Vayise.
