TALENTED rising rugby star Koketso Moganeng has been chosen as the August winner for the SuperSport Let’s Play Sport Star of the Month for Express.

He has been selected for his remarkable achievements in his chosen sport of rugby.

Koketso (18) is a learner at the Boshoff High School in the Free State and is rising steadily to greater heights.

He has an impressive record in rugby, notable with achievements.

His achievements include his selection to play inside centre in the u.16 VKB Week tournament in 2014, at a very young age. He was also selected for the Southern Free State u.16 team in the same year.

His talent saw him chosen in 2015 as the best outside centre of the u.19 VKB Week tournament and he played for the Southern Free State u.19 team.

Koketso’s merited performance also saw him included in the u.19 team that represented South Africa at an international tournament held during September 2015 in Italy.

He distinguished himself at this international development competition and this saw him receiving the Player of the Tournament award.

Koketso’s most recent achievements include being voted as the best number 14 wing of the u.19 VKB Week, chosen for the SA Country Districts u.19 team and voted Man of the Match twice at the Spar u.19 tournament.

He has been rewarded for his impressive performance being chosen for the ITEC u.19 international team to tour England and Wales in October 2016.

Koketso’s personal motto is: “Believe in yourself, believe in your capabilities, work hard and never give up.”

More on the Let’s Play initiative:

SuperSport over time has evolved as the quintessential sports authority. With such strong sporting influence within the South African market, SuperSport has been perfectly poised to harness this power and rally the public and corporates to truly make a difference in society.

SuperSport identified that there were huge issues severely inhibi-ting the development of children through skills learned by playing, physical education and sport – all of which are imperative to the holistic development of young people.

It was from this insight that Let’s Play was born in November 2005 with the aim of elevating awareness of our social situation and to introduce and encourage play, activity and sport in schools.
