Stuart Abbott

He won the Rugby World Cup with England in 2003 and has long been a Cape Town resident. He led the Switch Players team in Spring Season 2016 and his touch is still there where perhaps the legs are not quite what they were and more experience Beach players can dance in the grains with a little more aplomb but his competitive streak and touch on the ball stands out on grass or sand whatever the age.

percy Montgomery

A Camps Bay, Cape Town and South African legend. From the fields of SACS through to winning the RWC in 2007, Percy has been a superstar on the Western Cape. He joined the Switch Players sides in the Spring Season of 2016 and though not quite built for bouncing on the playa, defenders were drawn to him and others found holes across the field. A crowd pleaser to the end, supporters were drawn to the playa to watch the former Bok hero.

Brent Mcdougall

Captain of the CB Legends side that swept all before them in the Spring Season of 2016, winning all but a draw in the finals day groups against eventual runners-up Husk All-Stars. Brent pulls the strings in training and on the field, has an endless engine that impressed so much he ran away with the 'Switch Impact' Player of the Season. 

 

Nick aitken

Another superstar of the sand for much of the past decade as part of the intense sessions on Camps Bay on Saturday mornings, Aitken bought his skills to the big boy league in Spring Season of 2016 for the CB Legends and his speed, step and touches on the ball stood out from the outset.

 

 

Jordan Chaite

You can find this guy at the Institute in Stellenbosch and he has a big future in front of him at No.10. The former SACS star that also played Water Polo for South Africa has taken to the sand with ease. He has touch, vision and a turn of speed that keeps the opposition on the constant back foot.

 

Josh Sarembock

Widely considered the slowest man on sand on the Beach Rugby Series but still on the end of a number of try scoring opportunities including a length of the field run-in during the 2016 Spring Season. A corner stone of the Caprice Staff side since Autumn Season 2016, Sarembock is a huge part of the success of the Beach Rugby Series.
