Engelbrecht for Lions against WP

Ikeys powerhouse Pieter Engelbrecht who will play for the Lions at Newlands this weekend had a bit of time for some quick questions about John Mitchell, the Currie Cup and the Soccer vibe at Ellis Park.

Thanks Poot for chatting to us, ,uch appreciated. Lets get right into it, you guys started with a good win last weekend, so things are looking positive. How is John Mitchell as a coach?

Pieter Engelbrecht:
John Mitchell has been great to work with. He has plenty of Rugby knowledge and one can learn a lot from him. He genuinely cares about the cause and fully commited to it as well. I think it would be great if he stayed on for the Super 14.

Great to hear. You have been playing wing and center, what position will you be playing for the Lions this CC season?

Pieter Engelbrecht:
I will play predominantly centre, I feel most comfortable there and can add most value to the team in that position.

How many matches did you play in the 2009 CC and how good do you think your chances are to get some more game time this year?

Pieter Engelbrecht:
I was involved in ten games last year and played in eight of them. I hope to add a couple more to that tally this year.

uctrfc.co.za: Looks like you can kick off your 2010 tally this weekend! Speaking of the big 2010 – Did you get a chance to watch any soccer games? Maybe after training at Ellis Park?
Pieter Engelbrecht: I was lucky enough to watch two games…USA vs Slovenia at ellis park with my mate (and US Eagle) Todd Clever, what a vibe! I also watched the quarter final, Germany vs Argentina in cape town, amazing experience!

uctrfc.co.za: Awesome it was! Good luck this weekend!
Pieter Engelbrecht: Thanks, maybe I’ll bump into some of the boys.
