The FNB Madibaz rugby team are unbeaten in the FNB Varsity Shield competition this season, but loose forward Bevan Prinsloo says they will not lose focus of their ultimate goal.
The former Grey High captain, who grew up in PE but now lives in George, said their overall aim was to win the Varsity Shield with a view to returning to the Varsity Cup competition.
“We just want to make sure we don’t slip up anywhere and stick to the processes that we know,” he said after being named the Player that Rocks against UKZN.
“We are keeping our feet on the ground and we want to build on what we have done to try to go from strength to strength.”
A first-year sports management student, the 19-year-old Prinsloo said his success this season was underpinned by a desire to add value to his team.
“My goals are very simple and that is just to go out there and try my best, never give up and always be there for my teammates.”
He added that he was on a learning curve at Madibaz rugby and enjoying the freedom that came within the team’s playing structures.
“The environment is very welcoming and enjoyable and the coaches are very good. They know how to handle players and it creates a great environment for your development as a player.”
