Obituary: Rugby stalwart Kobus Koorts dies

2008-04-16 00:00

One of KwaZulu-Natal and Durban Collegians rugby’s favourite sons, Jacobus Abraham Koorts, affectionately known as Kobus in his days as one of the country’s smallest but most dynamic Currie Cup wings, died in Klerksdorp this week after a long battle with cancer, writes JOS ROBSON.

After his playing days, he moved to Carltonville where he met his wife Johanna and had three children, Kobus junior, Corné and daughter Alida. He later moved to Rustenburg, where he owned sports and shoe shops, before moving to his farm near Ventersdorp in 1988. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
