Open Microphone with Rob Louw & Sikhumbuzo Notshe, 11 October 2018

Thursday 11 October 2018: We are honoured to host Wynberg Old Boys & Rugby Springboks, Rob Louw (1973) and Sikhumbuzo Notshe (2012) at our Open Microphone at 19h00 in the Bill Bowden Pavilion. The MC is another old boy, Howard Kahn (1996), Sports Marketing Manager for Adidas, previously Communications Manager for the Stormers. This will be an extra special occasion in that it marks our 50th Open Microphone, and we say thank you to convenor, Paul Barichievy, for organising these outstanding evenings starting with the inaugural Open Mic with Duncan Fletcher, almost 10 years ago to the day.

Rob will have just returned from his annual golf visit to St Andrew's, where he plays in the company of many stars and high profile people. Notch, as he calls himself, will just have finished his duties as part of the Springbok squad. Rob is still very active in rugby, with his regular Twitter Feeds and observations and has plenty of stories and opinions to share with us. Notch, is also a double Springbok, having played for the Blitzbokke 7 a-side, earlier this year. The similarities between the two are remarkable, both being players known for their incredible pace and ball carrying abilities, hard tackling and amazing athleticism.

Tickets can be booked with Carol Ramsay – This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Cost: R120 includes supper and a lucky draw.

Wynberg vs SACS, We Reflect on Success & Our Wynberg Way

Monday 27 August 2018: The 2018 winter season finale played out like so many before - a gloriously miserable Cape winter’s day with plenty of wind, rain and mud - but, happily, with a triple crown for the 1st XV on SACS main field, their Memorial A.

Wynberg support was once again awe inspiring - 500 boys, immaculately turned out in full winter uniform, most of them armed with umbrellas in anticipation of the rain. Just before kick-off, the weather seemed to be taking a severe turn for the worse and Reza Grever came over to me on the SACS side of the field to ask if the boys could share the undercover seating on the new pavilion at SACS. Fortunately this move was not necessary, Wynberg Men are made of sterner stuff,  as the heavy rain stayed away until the second half of the WP vs Cheetahs game when DSTV signals went off across the Southern Suburbs as all hell literally and figuratively broke loose.  

Our boys merely had to withstand the bitterly cold North Wester that swept across the ground, but that did not take the heat out of a very clinical Wynberg display as they ran out 30-17 winners.

SACS tried everything, including tackling one of our cheerleaders, but their creativity on attack was not enough to end their tough season on a high note. The hockey on Friday night was equally heartwarming.  Goals aplenty as Wynberg tore the heart out of a gutsy SACS outfit who led after dominating possession in the first chukka.

Wynberg turned on the heat for the next 45 minutes and were irrepressible in everything they did – except charm the opposition supporters and neutral observers.  Goalmouth celebrations that revealed dance moves, hairy chests, and fake sniggering were disappointing and wholly unbecoming of Wynberg men. I will endeavour to ensure that this does not become the norm for any Wynberg sport. My embarrassment was further compounded by a moment of madness by a Wynberg parent climbing over a fence at the astro, doing some minimal damage to property in the process, before running across the astro arrogantly celebrating our victory. This is not our Wynberg Way. I exhort all parents, Old Boys, and supporters to lead our boys in exemplary behaviour, field-side and on social media.
