Two of the best backlines in Western Province rugby have involved Carel du Plessis, one as player and one as coach. The lineups my head are:
9. Serfontien 10. M du Plessis 11 Carel Du Plessis 12 Goggie van Heerden 13. Faffa Knoetze (or W Du Plessis) 14. Neil Burger (Avril Williams) 15. Calla Scholtz
The other would be:
9. Conradie 10. C Rossouw 11. P Rossouw 12. Fleck 13. J de Villiers 14. C. Williams 15. Montgomery
Now Carel’s son, Jean-Luc, looks like he might be about to make his debut at flyhalf for the Stormers who are coached by Robbie Fleck – one might get the feeling, from looking at the above, that there are only three families that play rugby in the Cape.
No Jean-Luc and oh what a dismal loss (Sharks).
