Looking After Our Own: Part 1

It was fantastic to hear of the recent employment of u20 scrumhalf Jason Marcus at Wakaberry in Cavendish Square which is owned by 1st XV squad member, Matthew Rockhill.

Jason and Matthew both joined the club this year, Jason hailing from Boland having played for Boland u19s last year while Matthew joined after an extended hiatus from the game, although he did play at Durban Collegians as an u20.

Without paying players the ability of the cub to attract and retain players especially in the u20 ranks where most are still studying will be a difficult prospect moving forward, however with our players looking after each other like this we can look forward retaining more players of Jason’s quality in the future.

Jason has recently been selected for the WP u21 training squad and as a result of this he is expected to be at the WP HPC for most of the day three times a week, a fact that Matthew has no problem allowing. Matthew ensures Jason gets the time off work to attend the training sessions he needs in order to further his Rugby career.

This goes above and beyond the normal call of duty and for that the club wishes to thank Matthew for his efforts.
