Week 2 is looking a lot better with a total of 27 new nominations.
Bart and I again discussed the new nominees and agreed that the quality of the nominees is as good as the previous years. However, we must also agree that some deserving players could be left out as the season was cut short by the COVID19 pandemic. To be fair myself and Bart will evaluate each deserving player who is nominated and did not play rugby this year.
The new nominees are:
School of the Year: Garsfontein, Drostdy HTS, Grey College, Waterkloof.
Team of the Year: Grey College, Affies, Ben Vorster.
