Please let me introduce you to Lourens Delport, better known by friends and loved ones as Akker.
Akker was born to rugby. A sweet 2001-baby with no desire to be better than anyone else but an extreme passion to be the best that he can be.
From the first moment he held a rugbyball, we knew that Akker has a love for the game.
When Akker scored his first official try in grade 1 (in true Habanna-style), one thing was certain; Akker was born to rugby.
Akker started his rugby-career as a nifty scrumhalf, showing versatility when moved to flanker and eightman. Currently serving his U16-team in the backline, excelling as an outside centre for Potchefstroom-Gimnasium.
His love for rugby was moulded in the womb, extracted and developed by numerous coaches like Andrè Smith in primary school and currently, Fanus Anderson. Because they also believe that Akker was born to rugby.
During the Easter holiday, Potch Gim participated at the Glenwood Rugby-Festival. Akker was selected to be part of the Glenwood Invitational-Team for the chance to tour to Ireland Nov/Dec 2017. A golden opportunity for a young man who was born to rugby.
The cost is estimated at R38,320-00; excluding apparal, clothing and spending money. Please help us to Take Akker To Ireland.
