The St Andrew’s Rugby pathway

It has been really exciting following the different rugby journeys of some of our Old Andreans. We have been working hard on setting up our boys for their next chapter. Some of the young men are excelling and should be celebrated.
The Currie Cup has provided three of our boys an opportunity to show off their talents. Matt More has been performing well with the Pumas, and hopefully, this will be only the beginning for him. Sazi Sandi has been a regular for WP and has helped them make the semi-finals this past weekend. Murray Koster has been a revelation at the Sharks, and his partnership with Werner Kok has grown stronger. Murray also got to start a recent game against the British and Irish Lions. We are so proud of these fine young examples.
Three of our older OAs are still playing at a professional level and performing well. Tyler Paul is with NTT Docomo Red Hurricanes side in Japan. Jason Baggot has been playing for Southern Knights in Edinburgh. Sintu Manjezi was brought across to the Bulls and will be hoping to make his mark on the international scene soon with the UCR.
Two of our recent 1st XV boys are currently with Murray at the Sharks. Lloyd Koster was recruited by the Sharks and had been playing for their U20s team. He was joined recently by Lukhanyiso Bomelo, who is on loan from UCT. Our 2019 captain Chris Poole is currently contracted to Ulster Academy in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Byron Sharwood recently made his debut for Western Force in Australia. Brendan Owen has been playing well for Jersey Reds in the UK. Our famous Twins – Basi and Bami Malesu are making waves in France with PAU.
At University level, several Old Andreans are involved and performing well. Lukhanyiso Bomelo, Busang Mmile, Matt Hillary and Sinjin Broad all played for UCT Young guns. Matt Royle and Bradley Van Heerden have been playing Varsity Shield for Rhodes University. Christian Roebert has recovered well from his knee injury and is currently playing for Hartpury 1st XV. His last game for them was against Oxford. Matt Hillary, Jason Thomas, Alex Menage, and Daniel Cooke will join him in Hartpury in Gloucester. Dylan Wilson has been excelling for Melrose Club and has been joined by Sinjin Broad. Both these players will be training with the Southern Knights pro team in Edinburgh.
