This coming Saturday one of Jacques Van Stadens dreams will become a reality when he dons the Blue and White Hooped jersey for Western Province u21 against the Sharks at Newlands.
After having joined the WPRA earlier this year from Pretoria, the former Hoërskool Menlopark student who had represented The Blue Bulls at u18 and u19 levels has worked exceptionally hard to make an impression on the Western Cape Club Rugby scene.
His standout performances for the WPRA as well as False Bay RFC 1st XV caught the eye of the WP u21 selectors with his initial inclusion in their training squad.
He has toiled the entire season unrelenting in his desire to get his WP u21 cap.
This has duly been achieved and all of us at the WPRA wish him all the best as he starts at inside center knowing this is his opportunity to shine on the Big Stage. Newlands! What a venue for a debut, it should be a humdinger of a fixture.
