"Pretoria Boys High School is proud to announce that Rudi Dames will be taking over as Director of Rugby from January 2017. Rudi is a HTS Vereeniging Old Boy who is very passionate about rugby. He was fortunate to play SA Schools Rugby in 1999 and was chosen to play SA Under-19 the following year.
In 2000 Rudi joined the Potchefstroom University Rugby Institute and started with a BComm Degree, but in 2002 he was given the opportunity to play for the Sharks Under-21 squad and he decided to pursue his rugby career.
From 2004 – 2006 he played for the Wildebeeste. In 2006 he was part of the Sharks Currie Cup Squad and in 2007 he was given the opportunity to play in Nice (France). On his return in mid-2008 he went on to play for Collegians, but because of many injuries he shifted his focus entirely to coaching.
Rudi has had the opportunity to coach a range of teams. He has been coaching the KZN Academy team since 2009. In 2013 he was the assistant coach of the Sharks Under-21 team and he has been coaching the Collegians Under-20 team for some time. Rudi was the Assistant Coach at Glenwood High School from 2003 and took over as Head Coach in 2014.
We would like to welcome Rudi and wish him many years of success."
