Pukke 2021 u/20 Young Guns Newcomers Announced. Bart And I Can Not Agree On Their Chances

The Pukke has a history that they develop their u/20 Young Guns Squad into a very competitive side. This year's squad, however, have a few "stars to be" in the line-up that will upset a few opponents. It must also be remembered that several players from the 2020 squad will still be available.

Bart Schoeman is confident that several stars in the squad will be contracted elsewhere in the country by the end of the 2021 rugby season, and gives his reasons. I, unfortunately, can not agree as the first year in a very competitive structure and competition could be difficult to adapt to for several boys who hail from smaller schools where the competition was not as fierce.
