|Wynand Claassen : Doc Craven|
Wynand and Tommy Bedford – almost birds of a feather. I’ve known Wynand for a long time. In fact I’ve known his father George, a one-time winner of the Comrades Marathon, for even longer. George is a wonderful man, a dedicated schoolmaster.
Wynand wasn’t brilliant in the accepted sense of the word – he was a player who went almost unnoticed. You had to watch him carefully to appreciate the work he got through.
He had a difficult task in New Zealand in 1981 and Wynand later wrote a book in which he was very outspoken. Let people say what they like, that book cost him a place on the selection committee. But he has accepted it with a smile.
He’s doing a wonderful job building up rugby at the University of Natal and I believe we’ll still hear a lot more of Wynand in the future. He still has a big role to play in our rugby.
