Here are three of the WP Under 18 teams to represent the province at Brug Street from 9 to 14 July 2018.

The late publication of the sides has regrettably proved to be something quite beyond the understanding and control of normal human beings.  Finding out the players in the Academy Week Invitation team can wait; getting these three has caused more than enough frustration.

Make of the teams what you will.  Apart from an abnormally high HJS Paarl representation, they look pretty much as expected.  Mind you, the large number of Boishaai players is also something one has come to expect…. 

The original lists had the wrong schools for two of the players and a total of twelve errors in the spelling of various players' names, but that must be an oversight caused by all the secrecy and time constraints.  Yeah, right !
