Be Brave!

I’ve done four warriors this year and each one has been as much fun as the last! We only have one more locally in Gauteng this year and we’ll definitely be doing it without a doubt! We’ve stuck with the rookie courses so far as we have been roping in friends and family members each […]

Jackal Creek Run

September saw myself and Taryn do our first night trail run at Jackal Creek Golf estate. They do a monthly night run, they have a 4km and an 8km. We did the 4km race as our starter – first night run so wanted to make sure we managed ok! The vibe was awesome leading up […]

The 2015 L’Ormarins Queens Plate

The JabuView with Michael Makings

One of the most exciting visual sports is Gymnastics, and the gymnasts that perform in this support are truly amazing athletes. We were lucky enough to meet South Africa’s best, Michael Makings, and find out more about him and his sport. Gymnastics is unfortunately not given the coverage it deserves. Hopefully we’ll be attending a […]

The JabuView with Jaco Taute

  Jaco Taute is part of the exciting future of the Springbok team. This year, his season was cut short due to injury. As he has now formally signed for the Stormers, he will have a chance to deliver on the promise again next season! A player with bucket loads of potential. Dirk had a chat with […]

The JabuView with Captain Courageous, Corne Krige

Corne Krige was capped 39 times for the Springboks and captained the side through a turbulent time in the country’s rugby history. Western Provice and Stormers fans will remember him and his side fondly, as do I as a Stormers fan, and the legacy they left behind. He captained the Boks 18 times in all […]
