Unbeaten DHL Western Province will travel to Port Elizabeth to take on the EP Kings at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday at 7:00 pm, which could prove to be a tight encounter.
Sylvian Mahuza – EP Kings Rising Star:
Mahuza took the first big leap in his rugby career in 2009 when he represented SWD at the Coca-Cola Under-16 Grant Khomo Week. He went on to represent the province in the Coca-Cola Under-18 Craven Week the following two seasons before moving to the Leopards where he was a member of their Under-19 team in the Absa Junior Championship. The player’s career received another big boost in 2013 when he was named in the Junior Springbok squad for the Junior World Championship in France after which he participated in the Absa Under-21 competition.
He made his debut in the Vodacom Cup last season, and later was selected for the Absa Currie Cup qualifiers, where he made his mark by finishing the qualifiers as joint top try-scorer with 10 tries. The player continued this impressive form in the Absa Currie Cup First Division where he scored four tries – only one less than the competition’s top try-scorer.
At the young age of 21 and a bright career ahead of him at the EP Kings, the former Outeniqua High pupil, who is 178cm tall and weighs 80kg, will be looking to make the most of the opportunity to take another step forward in his career, especially with the EP Kings playing in the Absa Currie Cup Premier Division this season.
