2017 - Preview
The coaches at Oos Moot must be very excited as the 2017 promise to be one of the best. With the 2017 Grade 12's coming back it is the names of centre Edmund Ludick and prop Dandre Nolte who already represented the Blue Bulls at various levels. Then add lock Christiaan Meyer and wing Emile Bester who was also included in the Mauritz Hansen touring squad, and one can understand their excitement.
When adding center Conrad van Deventer and loosie Dean Steinhoble, who was already regulars in the 1stXV in 2016 excitement changes to confidence. And to top it all, an u/16 group that played in the final of the 2016 Beeld/VirSeker series will provide the necessary competition to ensure no grade 12 player can sit back and expect to pull the light blue jersey over their head.
Hooker Eduan Swart, centre Jaco Kruger and prop JP van der Meulen is some of the stars of the u/16 group that a lot is expected from. Eduan Swart represented the Blue Bulls NoordVaal u/16 team in 2016.
No wonder the coaches is walking with big smiles on their faces and although Helpmekaar will be a massive challenge, expect that game to be World War 1 and 2 all in one, revenge must be a big possibility in 2017.
