Young star Jooste to fly flag for WA

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Drive Way -

YEAR 12 stu­dent Ni­cholas Jooste has scored more than 450 points – in­clud­ing 25 tries – in his three years at Hale School.

The school’s rugby team cap­tain has been named as the only WA player in the Aus­tralian Schools Rugby Bar­bar­ian Team to play Samoan and New Zealand schools in the up­com­ing na­tional com­pe­ti­tion.

Jooste has been de­scribed as a prodi­gious place-kicker and a strong, quick and pow­er­ful at­tacker.

Jooste is also in the Perth Spirit squad for Na­tional Rugby Cham­pi­onships this month.

Western Force player Dane Haylett-Petty vis­ited Hale School last month to speak to the stu­dents and con­grat­u­lated Jooste on his Win­ter Sport Hon­ours award from the school.
