YESTERDAY was a red letter day for the Lions trio of Edwill van der Merwe, Jordan Hendrikse and Sanele Nohamba, with the former pair announced in the Springbok team to play Wales on Saturday, and the latter crowned South Africas United Rugby Championship Player of the Season.

Winger Van der Merwe will make his debut for the Boks and he said he will be playing for the rugby-mad community in his hometown of Kylemore, near Stellenbosch.

I come from a small town where everyone is crazy about rugby, Van der Merwe said.

(Fellow Bok) Herschell Jantjies is also from Kylemore and when the Boks won the 2019 World Cup, he had his own trophy tour. I was in the crowd on the streets of Kylemore as he was driven through with the World Cup on the back of a bakkie.
