A 13-year-old’s Rugby Wish


A 13-year-old’s Rugby Wish

Meet Rouxve Meyer, a Grade 8 learner at the Parel Vallei High School in Somerset West. Rather, meet her website. Rouxve absolutely loves rugby and has decided to put her passion into practice.

Rouxve enlisted the help of her older brother Francois, 18, to develop a website. People who love rugby and have something to say can pop onto the site and leave their comments. They even have the opportunity to vote for their favourite national Springbok Rugby team as well as the local regions such as the Bulls, Cheetahs, etc. The votes are counted and the top team is then revealed. It would be interesting to see how the National Selectors and the list from the rugby fans correlate – or not!

Rouxve says “I am not looking to make money out of this …  I just wanted to give people a place to make their selection and to share their selections with everyone else … I wanted to see what other people think. I hope people like the idea.”

The site is user friendly and all you need to do to get commenting is register and then let your opinions fly. So for those ardent rugby fans, you now have an outlet for your comments but remember to watch those p’s and q’s as there are other teens on the site too!
