Three players in Naka Drotske’s 2013 Super Rugby wider training group, have been selected to play 7’s rugby with Paul Treu’s Blitzbokke. Robert Ebersohn, Kevin Luiters, and Hansi Graaff will be available for the Dubai, and Port Elizabeth legs of the IRB Sevens Tournament.
Last year Robert Ebersohn also played 7’s as part of a loan agreement with the Blitzbokke. Hansie Graaff continues his rise up the ranks, after impressing at flyhalf for the Griffons in the 1st Division of the Currie Cup. Paul Treu has an eye for promising players, and he has had his eye on Graaff since last year. Apparently the Kings are also interested in the young flyhalf’s services. He can add another option to the Cheetahs flyhalf options. Luiters is a very attacking scrumhalf. It will be great development for the two youngsters.
