Bok jersey – Oupa’s next goal
2014-05-22

Former Shimla captain and 2013 Varsity Cup player that Rocks, Teboho Oupa Mohoje, was recently added to the 36-man Springbok training squad for the coming 2014 mid-year international tests.

Teboho already achieved his goal for 2014 when he earned himself Super Rugby caps with the Cheetahs. Next, he has set his sights on becoming a regular with the Boks.

“I found out a week before the announcement was made,” says Oupa. “When [Cheetahs] coach Naka [Drotske] told me, I was actually shocked and had no reaction. I even asked him if he was serious. But it all started to sink in when the announcement was made public.”

This star on the rise is actually better known as Oupa – as he was dubbed by his primary school coach who noticed he had grey hair. Oupa used to study BAgric and now studies Human Movement Sciences at Kovsies, although he does not play Varsity rugby anymore.

“I’ve learnt a lot. I made good mates like Willie Britz [now playing for the Lions] and Freddie Ngoza. I have a lot of great memories and all-in-all it was a good learning curve,” he fondly sums up his time as a Varsity rugby player.
