No 8 Evan Roos was named the U18 Craven Week Hero of the Day after scoring a try in Western Province’s 47-8 thrashing of the Sharks on Saturday.
The Hero of the Day award is based on a standout moment of the day and is not necessarily given to the best player.
With the home side holding a slim six-point lead, Roos made a brilliant run to cut through the Sharks defence to score one of five second-half tries for WP.
‘The lock passed the ball to me… we did a similar move in a warm-up game but I passed the ball to him,’ Roos said. ‘I just saw the line and went for it.
‘It is a total blessing,’ Roos said about the win. ‘It was a tough job but we knew it was one we had to complete. I am just glad the boys and the coaching staff pulled it through in the end.’
