Petrus Du Plessis Interview

Saint Charles College rugby heading in the right direction.


With Saint Charles College kicking off their winter sports program against Michaelhouse this Saturday we are posting up a series of videos we did towards the end of last year as we caught up with 1st team coach and Director of Rugby, Petrus du Plessis.

Petrus has a long distinguished career in coaching rugby and athletics holding an ASA level 1 and IRB level 2 qualifications.

Before his current  position at Saint Charles he was the Head of coaching and 1st team coach for Bethlehem Voortrekker High school for 6 years as well as head of conditioning for the rugby and athletics programs.

We would like to thank Petrus for his time and Saint Charles College for letting us access into to their school.
