Manyike’s agents, In Touch Sports, announced on September 8 that the 20-year-old was set to join the South African Sevens Academy. He was also invited to a Junior Springboks training camp in February, but had to withdraw due to injury.
HE WAS GRANTED AN EARLY RELEASE BY THE LIONS
His contract with the Lions concluded on October 31, but an early release was granted at the player’s request.
Manyike had come through the ranks at the Golden Lions, representing the Johannesburg franchise at U12, U13, U16 and U18 levels. He also captained the U16 team in 2016.
He was named head boy of Jeppe High in 2018. That same year he played for the Lions’ Craven Week squad for a second time and was selected as vice-captain of SA Schools.
CCTV CAMERAS SHOW HIM IN PRETORIA NORTH
A missing person’s report has been filed for Manyike in Randfontein. He was understood to have been last seen in Pretoria North on November 18 with CCTV camera’s showing him abandoning his car.
