Rustenburg – Jaco Fourie, a 20-year old student-teacher and avid rugby player, suffered devastating injuries in a car accident in March this year.

Jaco was a promising rugby player for the Newrak Impala’s first rugby team before the accident. Showing continued support, first team coach Naas Olivier and Impala’s first rugby team manager Wynand Burger went to visit Jaco again on 8 December. “You are still part of our team. We will face the future as a team beside you,” Naas told Jaco. 

This dynamic, determined young man is currently undergoing rehabilitation, but has a long expensive road to recovery.
