The incubator role Eastern Province Rugby plays in South Africa must not be underestimated: “Springbok skipper Siya Kolisi and teammates Lukhanyo Am and Makazole Mapimpi, all part of the recent World Cup-winning team, are from the Eastern Cape. So, coincidentally, are head coach Rassie Erasmus and backline coach Mzwandile Stick.
All three black players went to local schools and played age-group rugby for EP or Border before leaving for other provinces.
The region is a “Hot Bed” of Rugby talent. Please do your part to give HOPE to the Next Generation of Stars.
