Isak Cloete, Rocketfoot prodigy played an exceptional season with Witpoort Primary School. He kicked his u11 team through the Quater and Semi final of the City Cup. Isak converted both his team's tries to win the final 14 - 10. He will be playing scrum-half for the first team in 2018 and we look forward to more success. Isak is a special talent and has a bright future ahead of him. He has confessed that his love for Rugby knows no bounds but the idea of Kicking for an NFL team is not a far off career prospect. The young man certainly has a head on him All I know is that when Isak is 18 years old his post box will be over flowing with Scholarship offers and professional opportunities.
