Young Guns led by Kalahari boy

The Duineveld High School in Upington has once again produced an exciting young star.

The CUT Young Guns (YG) will be lead by former Duineveld learner, lock forward Hanco von Abo, who was raised on a Kalahari farm.

This was made known when the FNB CUT Young Guns announced their new leaders for the 2020 Varsity Cup season.

Van Abo is following in the footsteps of legendary CUT captains from the Kalahari, such as former Ixias captain, Rayno Nel.

Von Abo will be taking the reigns in a team who have found it difficult to be a power factor at Young Guns level in the FNB Varsity Cup.

They are competing against universities with powerful numbers of students to select from, such as Tuks, Maties, UJ, Pukke and Kovsies.

Since joining the Varsity Cup, CUT YG have yet to show their true capabilities and strength, and usually find themselves having to play catch-up rugby, chasing the opponents on the score board. Von Abo aims to change this in 2020.

“I have only one big aim for the Ixias.

I want 2020 to be our best season ever.

We are not willing to be any opponent’s pushover. In true CUT tradition, we also have a powerful pack of forwards this year.

“I know how talented our backs are this year, and we aim to convert every Newton of pressure into valuable points 2020,” Von Abo continued.

This burley forward seems to be one of those typical strong but mobile forwards, just like so many youngsters produced in the Kalahari-Gordonia region.

Judging by the way Von Abo plays his rugby, he will be up front leading by example, with passion and power in equal measure.

When asked on his view where he expects CUT YG to be in this campaign, he said: “Watch this space!”
