Boks take on Clifton lifeguards
- 08 Jan 2014
A number of Springboks will take on the Clifton Beach lifeguards on Sunday, 19 January, in a variety of events.
The Boks will challenge the lifeguards at touch rugby, flag contests and tug of war on Clifton Fourth Beach.
‘Most Capetonians will remember the great tradition behind this challenge,’ said Stormers coach Allister Coetzee. ‘It’s a wonderful opportunity to renew this tradition and create some friendly rivalry between the two teams.’
Attendees can also play touch rugby, watch musical performances and participate in other activities on the day.
Stop making excuses
Stop excusing Allister Coetzee’s obvious limitations on his late appointment as Bok coach. Stop excusing every Springbok defeat on referees, weather conditions or the age-old South African retreat that the rugby gods have an issue with the Springboks, writes MARK KEOHANE.
Boks still finding their feet
A healthy dose of patience and perspective will be required when assessing the Springboks this season, writes CRAIG LEWIS.
Boks have bigger worries
There are many reasons for the Springboks’ ongoing woes, but blaming transformation agendas is futile and far off the mark, writes CRAIG LEWIS.
