Emile Booyens – Nominated Backline Player Of The Year



In November 2014 my path crossed with that of Emile Booyens. I started working with the kid and some other kickers refining their goal kicking techniques.

Over the next two years this multi-talented sportsman amazed me with his work ethic as not only part of the PV 1st rugby team, but cricket and athletics teams too. His will to improve, harsh self-criticism and competitive nature are all absolute hallmarks of this youngster.

Parel Vallei 1st XV will miss him big time next year as he contributed a massive 164 points including 6 tries, 49 conversions and 12 penalties to the highly successful 1st XV rugby team stats. This placed him at the 10th highest point scoring position in the province.
