Tumi Khukhele, the Under-19 rugby coach at Boy’s High School is under no illusions that his team will face an upward battle in the Absa Wildeklawer Tournament.

Speaking to the DFA, the coach acknowledged the formidable competition that lies ahead for his team. Yet, despite facing early-season challenges, Khukhele notes a positive shift in momentum within the team.

Khukhele highlights the significance of last year’s “Bok day”, a Sevens tournament that served as a talent-spotting platform. The coach told the DFA that this event enabled the coaching staff to identify key players and strategically allocate positions, laying a foundation for focused training and development.

However, Khukhele candidly admits to facing hurdles in their training regimen, citing staffing shortages as a primary obstacle. Despite this setback, the coaching staff remains resolute in their efforts to maximise the team’s potential with the resources at their disposal.

Khukhele sees the 2024 tournament as a test for the team’s structural framework and would be happy if it highlighted areas for improvement. He views this event as an invaluable opportunity to assess their progress and refine their strategies moving forward.
