Player of the Week – Marnitz Boshoff
08 May 2011

Marnitz Boshoff delivered an outstanding performance for the Blue Bulls in their Vodacom Cup semi-final win over Griquas on Saturday.

Boshoff kicked 27 points, set-up tries and controlled the game with a very impressive overall display, helping the Blue Bulls into a fourth consecutive final.

The former Nelspruit resident only missed with one kick in his side’s 47-34 win, kicking six penalties, three conversions and a dropped goal.

Boshoff has scored 78 points so far in the Vodacom Cup, but it is rather his ability to do the right thing during the big moments of matches that stands out.

Vodacom Bulls and Blue Bulls kicking coach, Vlok Cilliers, punted the young fly half. “He has got a good head on his shoulders. He is a natural kicker of the ball, but also works very hard on his kicking. It is a very good attribute,” Cilliers said.
