Ox Nche to make Kovsies proud in Italy
2015-06-03

 

Shimlas prop, Ox Nche, was included recently in the Junior Springbok squad who will compete in the 2015 World Rugby Under-20 Championships in Italy.

The Junior Boks will kick off their championship when they face the host nation, Italy, at the Stadio San Michele in Calvisano on Tuesday 2 June 2015. Thereafter, the Green and Gold will clash with Samoa on Saturday 6 June 2015, and face their last rivals in Pool B when they play against Australia. The playoffs are scheduled for 15 and 20 June 2015.

Nche was part of the unbeaten Shimlas squad who made history when beating the North-West University Pukke in the 2015 Varsity Cup final. Shortly after the Kovsie victory, Nche was added as a starting player to the Junior Boks side who faced the Varsity Cup Dream Team. He has been the preferred prop ever since.

Nche matriculated at HTS Louis Botha in 2013, and played SA Schools in 2012 and 2013.
