The 2011 Rugby World Cup is nearly upon us and here in Canada i’m not feeling the love since they hardly show any rugby related news on television. So when i heard that thousands of fans rocked up in Sandton to say farewell to the Springboks before they left for New Zealand.. i felt a little left out.
Then i heard that Minister of Sport, Fikilele Mbalula, made a speech that would make any Saffa overseas proud. Brought a tear to my eye when he told the Boks to “Gaan and moer hulle! Bliksem hulle, die poppe sal dans!”
Watch our dear minister give our boys a rousing send off.
Dude’s been watching Braveheart because that’s some inspirational sh*t.
Excellent stuff…can’t wait to watch some rugby and scream at the television when i get home.
