Kenmare Could Go All The Way In 2019


With 6 u/13 and 9 u/12 boys in the current Lions practice squads, Kenmare is set to have yet another a successful season in 2019. With two very strong age grades coming together one cannot be blamed to see them as one of the favourites to end at number 1 at the end of 2019. Their claim to the number 1 spot will be tested early in the season with matches against Rooihuiskraal and Grey in the space of 2 days.

There was some concern that when coach Morne Kruger left at the end of 2017 might have an influence on Kenmare's results, however, Kenmare was crowned the 2018 Lions u/13A Champions showing that the coaching standards at the school are of high standards and planning is done years in advance.

It is questionable that they are not taking part in the Wildeklawer u/13 tournament but derby days against Grey College and Paarl Gim loom very largely. The Lions league fixtures are not yet available and will be added as soon as it is received.

Expect a big and strong pack of forwards with quick and skilful backs, paying rugby the Kenmare way.
