5 Durban High School rugby players selected for SARU U16 team!
Durban High School is proud to announce that five of its learners have been selected for the South African Rugby Union (SARU) U16 Training Camp which will take place in Paarl next month.
In total SARU selected eight players from KZN, five of which are from DHS: Kamvelihle Fatyela, Phendulani Buthelezi, Sanele Nohamba, Sean Barnes and Cham Zondeki.
“This is a massive achievement for the boys and for the school to have 5 boys selected in this Elite squad. There are only 8 boys representing KZN, so we are very proud of them,” said Scott Mathie, DHS Rugby Coordinator and former Sharks player.
These boys have all proved that hard work pays off, as they have been training consistently throughout the year under the supervision and guidance of Mr Mathie, along with their U16A coaches, Mr Grant Simpson and Mr Ray September. The other three players are from Kearsney College, Glenwood High School and Maritzburg College.
“We have put in some hard work into creating a high performance environment for our rugby players and these boys are starting to see the benefits of this programme. We are only at the beginning of this process which makes me excited for the future of DHS rugby. We are constantly working on new ideas and are striving to make DHS the best environment for a young man to maximise his potential both on and off the sports field,” commented Mr Scott Mathie.
The training camp will provide skills and development training across a broad range of categories including that of medical and dietary assessments; conditioning assessments and coaching; fundamental and positional rugby skills assessments and coaching; training and education on relevant rugby topics.
Well done, gentlemen!
