Duran Koevort credits former Springbok Robbie Fleck for Ikeys’ success on attack

Former Springbok centre and Stormers coach Robbie Fleck has been with FNB UCT-Ikeys for several years as an attacking coach. Ikeys fullback Duran Koevort says credit must be given to all the work Fleck has put in.  

 


“He is mainly our attack coach which works around our general play as well as our scrum and lineout attacking play. I think Fleckie is brilliant to have in the team, we all know how experienced he is in the game and his knowledge does wonders for us. He always challenges us to make decisions and think for ourselves around the game." 

 

Koevort adds that he looks up to many people and athletes for motivation to do better every day in his rugby career.  

 

"Kobe Bryant has to be my favourite sports idol of all time, his mentality he had around basketball and just as a person, in general, is one I strive towards. He called it ‘Mamba Mentality’ and described it as trying to be better today than you were yesterday …  trying to inspire people around you through your actions and what you do." 

 

"Much like with Bryant’s ‘Mamba Mentality’, I’m just trying to become the best version of myself and I think I’m able to become that through playing rugby and then there’s also purely a (desire) from my side to become better." 

 

Koevort, who is in his fourth season with Ikeys, says growing up, sports was something he enjoyed playing. 

 

He says he never told his family about his love for rugby over football. 

 

"Growing up I always used to play football outside with my brother or wherever we could, this was something that I enjoyed. I never really told my family that I wanted to pursue playing rugby.  

 

"From a young age, I fell in love with the game and most of my time went towards it. Throughout my rugby journey, my family has always supported me 100% and encouraged me to always give my best."
