DREAMS of playing rugby across the continent are on course as Emanuel van Wyhe (18), prepares to play in the Vision Sport Mauritius 7’s tournament in Mauritius from October 3 to 10 with the Southern KwaZulu-Natal (SKZN) U18 rugby team.

Speaking to Fever, Emanuel said he has played rugby from Grade 1 and his ambition is to become a professional.
“Last year, I was selected to play rugby in Mauritius, and I am glad to be selected again this year.
“My family is behind my success and I don’t want to disappoint them by doing things they are not proud of,” said Emanuel, who is at the Sharks Academy SKZN in Margate.

He completed matric at King Edward High last year and his goal is to play for a national squad.
He encouraged youngsters to play sport with passion and not give up.

“Young people must stay away from drugs, as an alternative they must play sport and chase their dreams to brighten their future.”
His role model is Curwin Bosch, the South African Rugby Union player, who plays for Sharks.

Emanuel needs R25 500 to get to Mauritius for the tournament and is asking for donations. To donate, contact the academy general manager Andrew Binikos on 082 353 4594, email info@thesharksacademyskzn. or visit
