Charles Van Staden
Playing the Scrum Half position, Charlie is a danger with ball in hand. He can step off both feet very well. He has the ability to distribute the ball with accuracy to both sides of the field and importantly, at full speed . He likes to control the game and speed. He is a natural ball player and can also be used at any backline position. He played provincial in every backline position. He is a first choice goal kicker in the starting line - up and kicks equally well out of hand with both feet.
Charlie applied his skills as a young player in 7’s rugby and as a result he is excellent at exploiting space on the front foot and applies in practice the importance of making first time one - on - one tackles.
Charlie's communication skills are outstanding and he is a organizer in all aspects of the game. He communicates with the team on attack and defense. The team always comes first for Charles and he is a principled driven player on and off the field with impeccable behavior and old world values he abides by.
