EXCLUSIVE: Springbok lock Lood de Jager sheds some light on his road to recovery, what has been keeping him busy, and shares his thoughts on the Springboks’ embarrassing defeat to Argentina.
De Jager reveals the extent of his injury and how he gone about his recovery from 20:23 before mentioning something pretty interesting about him remaining involved with the Blue Bulls for the Currie Cup.
There is a slight change to the start of the show as Morgan Newman’s place was taken by West Coast Crew 10s president ‘Moose’, who digs up some dirt on what Newman is really like in the 10s scene.
He goes on to speak about just how big the social rugby scene is around the globe before Newman makes an appearance as the discussion switches to the second round of the Rugby Championships from 06:23.
Anton ‘Worms’ van Zyl makes an interesting suggestion about restructuring the format of the competition just before Lood de Jager makes an appearance.
The show concludes with Newman loving his fantasy points after another exceptional Beauden Barrett performance just before the shortened Currie Cup gets some time in the spotlight.
