A strong SWD Emerging Squad was selected for this weekend’s Cricket Eastern Cape Tri- angular tournament that will take place in Port Elizabeth. SWD, together with Border and Eastern Province will participate in this annual event.
The team that is coached by the SWD High Performance coach, André du Plessis, include players like Hanno Kotze, Ruan Stander, Glenton Stuurman, Bronwill Goeda and Justin Jordaan who already had a taste of first class experience. Exciting prospects such as Richard Maree and Jean Heunis who both represented the SA Colts team are also part of the line-up. The 18-year old leg spin talent, Lance Roelfse, was not considered due to a wrist injury.
SWD will take on Eastern Province on Friday and Border on Saturday.
