Personal Overview

What is Rugby to me? It's a lifestyle, my passion & my dream. I have been involved in the game of rugby as a player for many years, seeing each game as a new challenge & learning curve. Rugby makes me feel that I am part of a team & family. The last 4 years I have widen my horizon by coaching at schools & clubs, teaching the games skills to young boys who share my passion & love for the game. My ultimate dream is to run out on a field & represent a top rugby side proving to myself & everyone that has had faith & supported me in my journey that this is where I belong. All the hard work, training & dedication has paid off. Nothing is ever achieved without hard work & I am ready to give my all to achieve my dream.

Coaching References

Tony Steel – Hillcrest High 1st Team Coach
I have known Devon for a number of years & had the distinct pleasure of being his coach during 2013 & 2014 when he made the 1st XV rugby team. I can honestly say it was a privilege. Devon is a fairly quiet & unassuming person who has strong convictions of his own & is passionate about everything that he has been involved in. I admire the fact that he will give of his best & has the humility to listen & appreciate advise given. He has strong beliefs & will defend these with a calmness & maturity beyond his years. He is also very passionate in whatever he undertakes & will always go the extra mile. While playing 1st Team rugby for me in these last 2 years, Devon displayed his versatility & skill and has therefore played in a number of positions, both forwards & backs. Contact –

Devon van Dyk played Rugby for Collegians Colts Rugby Club for the 2013 Season. Devon played for the U18 team. The team had an unbeaten season & went on to win the League.  Devon is an enthusiastic & hard-working player who will be an asset to any team. His enthusiasm is refreshing he is well liked by both Coaches & his Team Mates. I have personally watched Devon play at different levels over the past four years & I can honestly say he has passion for rugby that you won’t find often. Collegians Rugby Club wishes Devon everything of the best for his future and has no doubt that he will make a success of his rugby career.
