“I have never coached him but I watched him play back in the day in Boland as an under-19 and never realised he would end up being what he is now.

White added: “He is like having a coach there. He is very clever and extremely skilful, I cannot wait for tomorrow to see how he goes because I am sure people will see just the value that he has.”
