The World Cup is behind me, now to Malaysia 2019!

So the 2015 Touch Rugby World Cup is now behind me. I have 9 Mixed Open caps to my name and I am sure that I have come back a better player. Conditions in Coffs Harbour, Australia were pretty intense with flood warnings being sent out and an entire days play being cancelled. However, this only meant that a new competition format (games at 25 minutes 1-way) would make it tougher out there.

The Mixed Open Touch Boks came 11th in the end (far from our goal of third) but the heart shown on the field was something I will never forget. To my entire team, you guys rock. Each and every one of you has left an amazing imprint on my life that I’ll remember for a long time! I really hope I can step onto the field with you again!

I’m definitely gunning to make an Open Side for the 2019 Touch World Cup to be held in Malaysia and to experience an even higher level of touch.

It’s just about 2 weeks until we face off with the best touch rugby players in the country at the 2015 Touch Rugby Senior IPTs. It’s definitely one of the most intense weekends and the level of touch is ridiculously high so I’m really looking forward to it!

To give you an idea, this is the Mens Open Final from 2013.

I had the awesome privilege of being interviewed this morning (Wednesday, 4 march 2015) on Cliff Central by Siya Sangweni-Fynn on his show unTapped Talent.

We chatted about the awesome support I’ve been getting from Louise and Nondwe and also what needs to be done to get me to the 2015 Touch Rugby World Cup.

Action Sports Fundraiser


I’m pretty sure you’re sick of me posting about fundraisers but I’ve almost reached my target which is super exciting.

Gauteng Touch will be hosting an exciting fundraiser this weekend 21 February (5pm onwards) to raise funds for all the Gauteng Touch players. It will be a pretty cool event with action soccer, action netball, action cricket and bubble soccer.

Tickets are R150 for adults and R100 for students. It will be a great night with live Super Rugby, food on sale and a great vibe. Invite a friend and let’s make this awesome!

PS please can you just head to the Gauteng Touch post about this event to book a team by Thursday. It will just make sure we organise a well run event.

Thank you for your continued support!

What do you want me to write about?

What's on the table?

Over the years I have written on a few topics. Some of the topics have been ones that I’ve been interested in writing about but most of the time, at least in the past, I’ve written on topics that I have thought would be popular and get those precious hits up. Over time that has become less and less meaningful to me to the point where I had to refocus and re-evaluate what I could (and wanted to) write about.

After a bit of reading I thought that I should rather ask you, who actually reads my blog, and what you actually enjoy reading on it. I have data on what has been popular but it doesn’t seem right to just focus on that. So I’ve made a list of what I want to write about and would love to hear what you’d like to read on my site. It won’t take a minute and I’d really appreciate your feedback.
