A rugby-mad 13-year-old girl, with support from her brother, has turned her dream of selecting the ideal Springbok dream team into reality with a new Web site.
Rouxve Meyer, a Grade 8 learner from Parel Vallei High School in Somerset West, thought it would be fun to see what other people thought about the perfect team too – and so her Web site was born.

SA Select lets members select their own Springbok team. It then counts the total votes for each position and displays the most popular team, as selected by the fans themselves.

Selectors – as registered members are termed – can then discuss or comment on the current popular team, view other users’ teams by visiting their profiles and view the overall rankings of players for every position.

Meyer enlisted the support of her brother, Francois (18) to design and develop the site.

Meyer explains that the site fulfils a dream.
“I am not looking to make any money out of this. I just wanted to give people a place to make their selection and to share their selections with everyone else – rather like we do at home, I wanted to see what other people think. I hope people like the idea.”

SA Select already has 296 registered selectors.
