Grootfontein players rewarded at Pannar Rugby Week 2018:
On Friday, 6 July 2018, after the conclusion of the Pannar Rugby Week at Cedara in Pietermaritzburg, the SA Agricultural Colleges Team was announced for 2018:
Four players from the Grootfontein Agricultural College, Ruan Lambrecht (Tinkie), Alex Greig (Dozer), Curtley Leslie (Hasie) and Joppie du Pisani (Lood), were included in the SAAC (SA Agricultural Colleges Team).
Special trophies were awarded to three of the Grootfontein students for outstanding play during the rugby week:
Alex Greig received the Boland Bank Cup for the Most Constructive Rugby Player, while Ruan Lambrecht received the Joe Venter Cup for the Best Forward of the tournament.
The captains of Grootfontein, Joppie du Pisani, and Elsenburg, Gerco Nortje, received the trophy from Mr Willie van Zijl for the best match between two teams at the tournament.
Both Mr van Zijl (from Elsenburg) and Niel Schoeman (from Grootfontein) have long been involved with the SA Agricultural College team's management and tournaments, but have now retired from these positions.
