The Springbok Sevens Team recently paraded their new playing strip at the Ysterplaat Air Force Base near Cape Town. If the new promotional video is anything to go by, the choice of venue was no coincidence. Have a look at the BlitzBokke’s brand-new 2009/2010 campaign video and let us know what you think:
The coach’s own website also spoke to Paul Treu himself, the newly appointed BlitzBok Captain Paul Delport as well as SA Sevens Player of the Year Frankie Horne about their thoughts on the new season. From the noise in the background (and the coach’s lip-licking!) BlitzBokke.com could see that the interviews were done at the launch, during the luncheon nogal!
Now, I have seen the coach “in action” at a 2009 HK Sevens press conference buffet line and, given his slight built, if my mother had seen him then, she would have said:“Waa’s die vermox, die man het ‘n wurm!” (Having said that, in jest of course! the poor woman would surely have given up if she had seen her own son’s performance, never mind his built, so I’m not even going to try to translate that!) I can confirm, however, that despite his many previous visits to Hong Kong (and recently to Taiwan) the Coach has yet to develop a liking for sashimi!
Yes, even the BALL was a cake! Hong Kong Sevens, post-press conference. (Pic: Mike Jansen)
