Wynberg Cricket Colts Tour to Mpumalanga

Follow Wynberg Cricket on Facebook || Image source - uplandscollege.org

Friday 15 June 2018: Wynberg Cricket was delighted to accept an invitation from Uplands College in White River to tour during the mid-year holidays. This tour will fly our flag as a Wynberg Colts group of U14 and U15 players, giving them an invaluable pre-season experience against quality teams in Mpumalanga.

As in previous years when our 1st XI squad toured and discovered more in the outfield than just fielders, one of the highlights of the trip will be the opening match against our hosts at the Skukuza Cricket Club Oval in the Kruger National Park, where they will, according to the website, be able “ to add an adventure in the wild before, after and possibly during the match”. [Ed: parents need not fear an encounter in the slips with the ‘Big Five’. The Oval is within the Staff Village, and protected by great hands.]

We thank our schoolmaster coach, Mr Patrick Smith, for pulling the itinerary together - this is his old stamping ground, and his contacts, local friendships, and knowledge of the game will make this a classic school sports tour where cricket skills are developed along with opening new experiences in our sports ethos of ‘Friendship, Rivalry, and Competition’.

Wynberg wishes our touring party the very best - enjoy every moment, play with passion, and bring back memories to last a lifetime.

Wynberg Rugby: Watching Enjoyment Bring Success

View all the match photos of Wynberg vs SACS on Flickr

Saturday 9 June 2018, Wynberg vs SACS: There are numerous reasons why the Wynberg 1st XV have done so well in the first half of the season. The coaching of Justin van Winkel has always been a study in attention to detail. Craig Childs in his full-time role as Director of Rugby has supplemented everything that Justin does and then taken it to the next level in terms of planning, player management, assembling a top coaching and backroom staff, analysis of opposition and creating an environment where all teams learn from each and play with a common goal of advancing the fortunes of the Wynberg rugby club. This has naturally seen an improvement in the fortunes of all teams – not just the 1st XV.

However, a major reason why the 1st side has done so well has been their obvious joy at playing together and for the coaches. No-one epitomises this enjoyment more than rising star and 5-try hero, Jason Alexander.

While most players approach the field with steely eyes and a grim visage, Jason invariably has a smile on his face. And upon crossing the whitewash, he raises his eyes to the heavens, palms upturned, as if giving thanks for being young, fit and being blessed to be afforded the opportunity of playing a great game in a jersey that fills thousands with pride. His excitement was certainly not premature yesterday as he ripped holes through the SACS defence and ran in 5 tries (ok, he ran in 4 and kind of got driven over for the other) in a display that should convince even the most blinkered of selectors that he is 1st choice Craven Week player. He has arguably not had a bad game in almost 18 months and maintained the positive body language and humility even through the dark times of 2017. On so many occasions, he was the one man to get Wynberg over the advantage line despite the attentions of massive defenders in the eye of the storm. However, he has taken things to another level this year and has made hundreds of meters. Despite flat defences, he has been able to break the line with a barely perceptible shimmy of the upper body and a leg drive that has left defenders floundering. Seventy meter runs vs Grey and Bishops were left unrewarded but not so against SACS. Two of his tries were almost carbon copies of each other with the line break followed by a vicious handoff of “the bus is full” proportions before timing his angled run to beat openside flankers and backline players alike with a deceptive turn of speed before swallow diving over in the corner. The only negative was his Usain Bolt-like celebration with the line still 10 metres away before his last try. I am sure his mother had a few words with him about that and he will respond to her and his caring family’s guidance in a positive way. He is that kind of a boy and this will stand him in good stead in the future.

But the Classic Clash win was not a one-man show by any means. Wynberg were invigorated by the long-time return of match starters, Mika Schubert and Di Livio van Wyk and there was much to play for as Siya Nombakuse received his special 50th cap jersey. None of them disappointed and were all instrumental in giving Wynberg the shape that saw them begin the season with a great win over KES in April. Devon Pretorius once again delivered an almost flawless display with the boot and every time he guided one through the uprights with a right to left draw, you could almost hear the SACS faithful groan as the scoreboard pressure mounted. Devon has been doing this trick since Grey and his form will be much needed when we head down the N1 in July.

Cricket South Africa Honours WBHS with the Blue Chip Award for 2018

Headmaster, Mr Jan de Waal, with Wynberg's Cricket South Africa Blue Chip Award

At the end of the 2017/18 schools’ cricket season, Wynberg Cricket was honoured with a Blue Chip Award by Cricket South Africa. Wynberg Boys’ High School is proud, yet humbled, to be the only school in the Western Province to be recognised as meeting the highest standards for cricket development across CSA’s checklist of essentials: “number of teams per age group, number of matches played, coaching infrastructure & qualifications, facility infrastructure, and representation across the school pipeline.”

Wynberg’s Director of Cricket, Andrew Wylie: ”For Jan de Waal, Mike Engelbrecht, and I to be invited to Newlands for ‘a presentation’ was exciting but curious, We went, and were caught in the slips by the media. What an incredible award for my old school to receive, It is a huge honour for Wynberg Cricket.”

With another cricket trophy on Wynberg’s shelf, Andrew expands: “Wynberg Cricket is pure teamwork: our groundsmen, coaches, players, and our Wynberg Families band together with a passion for our brand and cricket in all its formats. A CSA Blue Chip Award must be shared by all, and serve as encouragement to stay on track to seek excellence as one of SA Cricket’s foremost schools.”

CRICKET SOUTH AFRICA (CSA) has congratulated those schools that have achieved Blue Chip status for their achievements over the past year.

Wynberg Cricket Welcomes New 1st XI Coach, Paul Phillipson

Friday 25 May 2018: Newly appointed 1st team coach, Paul Phillipson plans to bring a wealth of playing experience and understanding in coaching to the Wynberg Boys' High School Cricket fraternity. In anticipation of starting this new role at Wynberg Boys in August, Phillipson says:

“It will be another major coaching challenge for me in my long cricket career, but I must genuinely say it’s something I have dreamt about. Wynberg is a top, top school in every way and is recognised as such across the cricketing world. There certainly seems to be a solid structure in place with young, aspirant coaches operating throughout the age-groups.

I have massive respect for Andrew Wylie and the expertise he has brought as Director of Cricket. There’s no doubt we will work well together. My aim is to develop improved skills within the squad of 1st team players, to groom better people in a holistic way and to make Wynberg a school that everyone wants to play against. Can’t wait to get started!”

A professional cricketer since age 19, Paul played for Sussex County Cricket Club from 1970 to 1986.

“It does seem a long time ago when I began in county cricket as a medium pace seam bowler and always a tail ender. But the game was evolving, so my skill-sets had to adapt to that of an all-rounder. In my final years at Sussex, I played as an impact batsman and a specialist fielder in the short-format games. We all worked really hard at our fielding and particularly catching, where of course every chance mattered. It meant a lot to me when I  became the team’s leading slip fielder, trying to hold on to stinging catches from our two great fast bowlers, Imran Khan & Garth Le Roux, the latter a legendary WBHS old-boy.”

Wynberg 1st XV vs Boland Landbou - the Media Report

Follow Wynberg Rugby on Facebook

Saturday 5 May 2018: Wynberg Boys' High reversed a ten-point halftime deficit to overcome their more fancied opponents, Boland Agricultural on the Hawthornden Field. The final score was 27 - 25 after the hosts trailed 5-15 when the teams changed ends.

The Berg are enjoying a successful start to the 2018 season, having recently beaten Rondebosch and then narrowly going down to another Boland powerhouse, Paarl Boys' High.

High-flying Boland Agri, one of the top rugby schools in recent years, started in typical fashion, their bigger forwards aiming to subdue their opponents. The tenacious Southern Suburbs boys surprised their opponents in the opening minutes, overshadowing the Paarlites. Yet it was the visitors who opened the scoring. It was a well-weighted chip kick by their livewire scrumhalf which sat up for his left wing to collect and score. The conversion put the agricultural students seven points in the lead.

With the wind behind them, the visitors kept their hosts pinned in their own half through some clever tactical kicking. A well-executed move off a Wynberg lineout in their own half saw centre Rethabile Louw creating space for fullback Wandile Notshe to put his team on the scoreboard.
