Kenan Cronje will make his 50th appearance for the Boland Cavaliers when they face Zimbabwe in a SuperSport Rugby Challenge match on Saturday 1 June 2019.
The match will be taking place at the Boland Stadium in Wellington.
The 24-year old utility forward has been selected at eighth-man for this encounter, having been utilised mostly at blindside flank and lock during the season.
Cronje, who hails from Worcester in the Western Cape, made his senior provincial debut for Boland in 2015, having also represented the union at both u.19 and u.20 level. Cronje is a former pupil of Montana High School and also represented Boland Club Rugby side Worcester Villagers.
Boland will be looking to secure a convincing win on Saturday, as points difference could be decisive later-on in the competition. The Free State Cheetahs XV, who will be facing log-leaders Western Province this coming weekend, are currently level on log points (20) with Boland.
