Our son Timothy has taken us on the most fantastic, hair raising journey from the moment he joined our family. From birth he has had the most fearless nature I have come across & his boldness in taking on the unimaginable has kept us on our toes. Yes we as his parents have had many grey hairs & sleepless nights, but he has grown up into the most awesome gifted young man.
Having started Judo training before his teens, he learnt an over whelming amount about respect & I believe his fitness training in those early years is what protects him out on the rugby field. It has been difficult knowing that many times he is the smallest out on the field, but with the largest heart (and balls) according to his coaches & teammates.
This year he asked if he could start rugby on a more serious note, as previously he had only done judo competitively (Even taking part in the Commonwealth games in 2016 & receiving his SA colors twice) We closed our eyes & agreed.
Little did we know of the talent & skill that simmered within this young man.
Having moved from 2nd team to 1st team, he took part in the Apcan School Rugby series in August & won not only "Man of the match" twice, he also won "Man of the tournament".
He was then selected to join the touring team for Apcan who are going to Argentina. Our first thoughts as parents was that there was no way we could afford this, but in all fairness, we want to give Tim a fighting chance to get overseas & do what he loves.
We are asking for any small donations that you can afford & hopefully together we can help this beautiful young man make his dreams come true.
