Three Kearsney Old Boys in Springbok Squad
Congratulations to the du Preez brothers who play their rugby for the Sharks and have all been selected for the Springbok squad for the June internationals. This is a phenomenal achievement for each player.
Special mention should be made of flyhalf Rob du Preez (2011), pictured, on this occasion as he earns his first Springbok squad selection.
Loose forward, Jean-Luc du Preez (2013) has played in ten Tests for the Boks to date and scored two tries. Dan du Preez (2013), also a loose forward, has represented the national side on three occasions.
The Springboks are due to play a test against Wales in Washington DC on Saturday 02 June and the first of three Tests against England in Johannesburg on 09 June. Of the three players, only Daniel will travel to the USA for the Test against Wales.
We wish the brothers the best for the forthcoming Tests.
