An “awesome spectacle” awaits fans in 2021 when the British & Irish Lions head to South Africa for their quadrennial tour, and former Springbok flank Francois Louw reckons the tourists will have a point to prove against the men in green and gold.
Andy Edwards, the experienced Saracens Strength and Conditioning coach, has been appointed as the new Head of Athletic Performance for the Springboks.
Francois Louw went around the block a few times during his professional rugby career and when he decided to finally hang up his boots last month, he could look back at 15 years of senior rugby with a big smile on his face.
Thanks to the fantastic support and generosity of Springbok supporters, the R1 million-mark was surpassed in the Bok’s #StrongerTogether for R32-12 campaign, which raises money for hunger alleviation in struggling communities as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The cancellation of the inaugural Challenger Series event for women is a setback to their aspirations, but the Springbok Women's Sevens team will not give up on their drive to become a core team on the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series.
