Shimlas in front line for Baby Boks


Jacques du Toit and Luan de Bruin
07 May 2013

Our university is very proud of its two Shimla rugby players included in this year’s Junior Springbok team for the International Rugby Board’s (IRB) World Championships in France.

Luan de Bruin (hooker) and Jacques du Toit (prop) will help defend the World Championships, which they won in the Cape last year, from 5 June 2013. The Baby Boks took the prestigious Under-20 title from the New Zealand Baby Blacks in 2012.

Luan matriculated at the Afrikaans Boys’ High School in Pretoria and represented the Blue Bulls at the Craven Week in 2010 and 2011. Jacques, a Grey College alumnus, in 2011 played for the Free State at the Craven Week.

The two Kovsies are also the only players from the Free State in the Baby Boks’ World Championship squad.

They are currently at a training camp in the Cape in preparation for the World Cup tournament.
