Super 14: Young Cat will face big test
Young Jean Deysel will get the opportunity of a lifetime to carve a name for himself in the big time this Saturday against the Bulls at Ellispark.
With Bioplus van der Merwe being called up to the national sevens squad, Deysel has been included in the team to take on the Bulls on Saturday with Jonathan van der Schyff replacing the talented youngster on the bench.
In yet another admirable move by Ludeke by agreeing to a request from Sevens coach Paul Treu to release Bioplus, the University of Johannesburg's Player of the Year for 2005 will be faced with his toughest test yet, but those who know him rates him as a very mature player.
The battle between Deysel and recent Bulls convert Pierre Spies, will prove to be one of the more closely watched areas by both teams' coaches.
