In order of age: Willie,Michael, Carel, Jacques.
Edit: Oops, Michael was 2 years older.
In order of rugby skills: Carel, Michael, Willie and Jacques.
Jacques started playing for WP, but did not quite manage to keep his place in the team. He then went to EP and became a regular for a while. IMO he was to short for a wing and should rather have played outside center. Michael played center and fly-half, but I think he was an excellent 10. Great vision with a bit of an kicking game, but could not kick for posts AND he had to compete with Naas at the Boks and Robbie Blair at WP.
I was at the WP/FS game at Newlands in 1984. On the day Carel, Willie and Michael was in the team with Willie the captain if memory serves me well. Great game in the light drizzle...or not so great, but due to the fact that it was my first time at Newlands, I would always recall it as a great game....right next to the field with my heroes only a couple of meters away. Those were the days.
Go WP!!! Bring back the GLORY DAYS!!!!
