2008-10-29

Five Kovsies are included in the Springbok Rugby team that will leave for the rugby tour to England this week. One of the newcomers in the team, Heinrich Brüssow  (photo), is a fourth-year B.Com. student in Economics at the University of the Free State (UFS).

The other four players are former students of the UFS. They are: Juan Smith, Bismarck du Plessis, Gürthro Steenkamp, Ruan Pienaar and CJ van der Linde. Brüssow is flank of the Vodacom Free State Cheetahs and also played for the Shimlas – the UFS’s first rugby team.

“It seems that the UFS is continuously producing national rugby players for South Africa. This is something to be proud of and is an indication of the standard of our coaching,” says Mr James Letuka, Director of KovsieSport.

“We wish all the Kovsies and the rest of the team good luck with the coming tour,” says Mr Letuka
