The latest issue of SA Rugby magazine caught the eye of cover star Makazole Mapimpi and teammates Aphelele Fassi, Lukhanyo Am and Curwin Bosch.
In our new issue, we catch up with Mapimpi and find out more about his journey from humble beginnings to now being spoken of as a front-runner to earn selection for the Springboks’ World Cup squad later this year.
‘I’m not playing for myself. I’m playing for everyone from the Eastern Cape,’ he tells SA Rugby magazine. ‘I still get messages from people from my past, people who backed me when I was a youngster playing age-group rugby for Border. I have a lot of people from the rural areas sending me messages on Facebook saying that they’re praying for me and wishing me well.’

Fassi and Am also joined Mapimpi in checking out the magazine. Fassi was featured in the May issue of SA Rugby magazine, while Am was the cover star back in April.
Talented utility back Bosch will feature in the July magazine, and also took some time to see what was included in the latest issue.
