After a very successful LSEN week held at the Izak Steyl Stadium a very strong SA LSEN Team was announced that will participate in this year's u/18 Academy Week being hosted by Paarl Boishaai from 09 - 14 July 2018.
The talent on show this year at the LSEN Week was out of the world and the selectors had their work cut out not to make any "mistakes". Apart from these boy's selected a good 15 - 20 boys that did not get the nod would not let any team down at the Academy Week. At the rate the quality and talent improve year on year we could see the SA LSEN Team play at the Craven Week within a few years.
