South Africa Rugby announces Nike as new Springboks apparel sponsor

Rugby World Cup: South Africa Rugby announces Nike as new Springboks apparel sponsor

Springbok coach Jacques Nienaber pointed to the positive results of the rugby tournament. South Africa Rugby has announced that the Springboks will be wearing Nike apparel again in 2023 after their contract with ASICS expires in 2022. Nike and South African Rugby have signed a six-year deal, including the Rugby World Cup in 2023 and 2027. Rugby World Cup 2023 fans can buy South Africa Vs Romania Tickets from our website.

Nike, a clothing partner from July 2023, will provide off-field game equipment, apparel and footwear for all South African national teams, as well as off-field game equipment, apparel and footwear for the Boks and Springbok Women, Men’s and Women’s Sevens and Junior Boxing clothing and footwear.

SA Rugby’s Nike deal will take over current partner ASICS, whose contract expires at the end of 2022.

South Africa Rugby CEO Jurie Roux said: “We have an excellent relationship with ASICS and are very grateful for the company’s contributions over the past eight years.”

“It is always sad to see an important partner leave, but we understand that business strategies can change over time and we wish ASICS all the best as it continues its journey in South Africa.”

Carsten Unbehaun, CEO of ASICS EMEA, said: “ASICS has been a sponsor of the South African Rugby Union (SARU) since 2014 and supports their national teams including the famous Blitzboks Sevens and Springboks teams.

“However, since 2020, ASICS EMEA is adapting its activities to focus on the main sports categories; running, tennis and indoor sports. As such, following an agreement with SARU, ASICS will not renew the contract. We would like to thank SARU for passing the following way to provide support over the years and wish the team all the best.”

This will be the second time the famous Swoosh has graced the front of a Springbok jersey, as Nike was the team’s apparel partner from 1996 to 2003. Nike jerseys will hit the shelves in July 2023.

“We are delighted to welcome Nike on board, an iconic global brand whose vision to partner with Springbok impressed us from our very first conversation,” said Roux.

“Nike has big plans for a partnership and we look forward to officially launching our new alliance next year.”

Rugby World Cup winner Siya Kolisi poses with Klopp and Thiago during Liverpool training

On Wednesday there was a special guest at the AXA Training Center in Liverpool, attended by the Rugby World Cup winner and South African captain Siya Kolisi.

A huge Liverpool fan, Kolisi led the Springboks to the World Cup in the November 2019 final against England.

Later that month, a chance meeting with Jurgen Klopp in Cape Town led to his invitation to Liverpool’s Champions League clash with Napoli, his first chance to see The Reds live at Anfield.

Earlier this week, Kolisi fulfilled another dream: to see Klopp again with the help of Adidas ZA and see Liverpool players participate in Wednesday’s training. Rugby World Cup fans can buy South Africa Vs Tonga Tickets from our website.

The South African rugby star posted some images of Virgil van Dijk’s match on Instagram, as well as a photo with Klopp and Thiago, whom he called “the magician”.

Kolisi was there with his wife Rachel, who described the day on her Instagram as a “dream come true”.

In 2019, having just won the World Cup, he explained his doubts after meeting Klopp.

“I was sitting there with South African cricket captain Faf du Plessis and when I saw him come in I almost fell off my chair because I couldn’t believe it,” he told Liverpool FC at the time.

“He went to the bathroom and I was outside waiting for him to come out.

“I was too scared to ask him [to chat], so I just gave him my phone because I knew someone who knew him. Then he came up to me and said, ‘Man, you can ask. I know that you who are, we watched the final.” So that really struck me.”

“Then he talked to us for 40 minutes.”

Kolisi went on to explain that his admiration for Steven Gerrard as a young man, especially his leadership, “touched his heart.”

Let’s hope Kolisi, as the World Cup winner, has some inspiring advice for Liverpool players as they embark on their busy pre-World Cup schedule.

Rugby united the country and saved South Africa from military conflict
Rugby united the country and saved South Africa from military conflict

How South African Rugby Players United the Nation In 1995

In 1995 South Africa was on the brink of civil war. The divide between the country’s black and white populations has reached a tipping point and problems seem inevitable.

But suddenly, in 1995, rugby united the country and saved South Africa from military conflict. By the way, if you not only like to read about rugby but are also a daring player.

“White South Africa”. The party’s platform included an apartheid policy, the main slogan of the National’s campaign during South Africa’s first post-war elections. Which consisted only of the oppression of the black population. They are not allowed to vote, they are not allowed to stay in cities where white people live, they are not allowed to enter white companies, they are not hired, they are not allowed to marry white people and many other things are restricted.

The nightmare lasted until 1994, when Nelson Mandela, a black Nobel Peace Prize laureate, became the country’s president. It was Mandela who made possible the first free elections and started to change lives in this country. Rugby World Cup 2023 fans can buy South Africa Vs Ireland Tickets from our website.

The country’s new president decided to repeal most of the apartheid laws, but the legal process was not completed overnight and a section of the black population was so desperate for their long-awaited freedom that they didn’t want to wait. White people are frankly afraid of being oppressed.

Everyone needs a signal, a signal that everything is going to be okay.

The signal came from a place they hadn’t expected. One of Mandela’s plans was to develop sports and increase South Africa’s international exposure. Finally, international sanctions against the country, which prevented the national team from participating in major competitions, were lifted. The South African rugby team in specific missed two Rugby World Cups.

Mandela not only defended the national team’s right to participate in the World Cup but also ensured that South Africa becomes the host country of this World Cup.

One country – One team

In the beginning, not everything went smoothly. The slogan “One Nation – One Team” seems to be a mockery of black people. They don’t believe white athletes have empathy. Also, people cheered their teams more. How strong is that hatred?

However, Mandela took a series of measures that fundamentally changed the situation. He invited the captain of the national team, Francois Pienaar, to his home and discussed with him

Unite the people of the land. The wise decision was to send the best rugby player in the country to prison, where Mandela spent 27 years. But only one day they wrote about it in all the papers. The players’ passionate displays of support for black people and calls to unite for the most important games have not gone unnoticed.

The moment of unification

The day before the final, Mandela personally came to the team’s training ground and spoke to every member of the team. The captain of the South African national team handed over the national team jersey to the president. Of course, New Zealand is considered the most popular and they are much more technical, but sometimes the sport isn’t all about skill. Hundreds of thousands of fans sided with the host. The players of the team have become heroes!

With the frenzied support from the stands, whites and blacks came to cheer on their favourites and the South Africans began the most important game of their lives. And win in overtime.

Nelson Mandela arrived at the awards ceremony wearing the same uniform and hat the players gave him. They then handed the white captain the trophy for winning the World Cup. This is a time to unite the nation, which is enjoyed by all, regardless of colour or wealth. The moment that saved an entire country from civil war.

Lack of forethought by Springboks coaches leaves flagrant holes looking before next year’s Rugby World Cup

Lack of forethought by Springboks coaches leaves flagrant holes looking before next year’s Rugby World Cup

The Springboks found themselves in a tricky position in their second Test against Australia, with a number of mandatory changes leading to serious concerns for Coach Jacques Nienaber ahead of the Rugby World Cup 2023. For a team lauded for its depth. Nienaber and its coaching staff have failed to address obvious question marks in key positions. Rugby World Cup 2023 fans can buy South Africa Vs Romania Tickets from our website.

The problem started with the prostitutes, and Nienaber has two world-class players, Bongi Mbonambi and Malcolm Marx, who have been mainstays since Rassie Erasmus took over in 2018.

Nienaber and its coaching staff have failed to address obvious question marks
Nienaber and its coaching staff have failed to address obvious question marks

Concerns of Hooker

While the pair are largely in good health, the nature of rugby means injuries are inevitable. Mbonambi’s injury prior to the test at Ellis Park against the All Blacks was a prime example, leading to a blatant mistake by Nienaber when starting Joseph Dweba.

New recruit Stormer has shown promise in the Springboks team formed during the British and Irish Lions series and is expected to grow into a third quality whore for the world champions.

However, the decision not to give Nelspruit his life for the collision in Ellis Park a week earlier and for Marx, who threw Dweba into the abyss, failed.

Dweba’s foundations are revealed in his sidelines tossing and clambering. It’s not that prostitutes don’t have potential. Nevertheless, Nienaber has pushed the 26-year-old into a frenzy from the media and fans, inevitably hindering his confidence and possibly even his development.

Why don’t you start Marx, arguably the world’s hooker, and have Dweba get 30 minutes in the back after the hard work is done. So he can take full advantage of the platform he built to fit the test scenario?

Dweba

Then let Dweba gain confidence in his abilities against Australia instead of coming out of the media pain. Now Nienaber is in a situation where he would rather have Deon Fourie, who has front row time, shoot off the bench this weekend than Dweba.

Dweba's foundations are revealed in his sidelines tossing and clambering
Dweba’s foundations are revealed in his sidelines tossing and clambering

The questionable decision-making goes beyond that when we look at the 42-man squad named after the rugby tournament, with five scrum halves named and just three hookers.

In principle, both positions are crucial, but all five scrum halves have at least one Test cap. It would make more sense to pick an additional whore in Bulls star Johan Grobbelaar, who has been in the setup before and has been great in the United Rugby Championship (URC). Rugby World Cup fans can buy South Africa Vs Ireland Tickets from our website.

Then, when the crisis hits, as it is now, there’s a fourth potential hooker to call on. Which will give the team a head start on the road to the World Cup.

Fourie is a great player with extraordinary striking ability and he will play the Schalk Brits when he comes to the highs. But he doesn’t have to be a backup hooker.

Fly-Half crisis

Fly-half is another interesting weakness for the Springboks rugby. Handre Pollard and Elton Jantjies are just two outright pivots on the squad, and the risks associated with this limited roster have overtaken the South African.

Damian Willemse

Sure, Damian Willemse is versatile, starting at 10 this weekend, but looking ahead to the World Cup, how can there be only two professional half-timers in the wider squad?

Damian Willemse is versatile, starting at 10 this weekend

Injuries are the main concern, and it’s been highlighted this week, even before it’s no secret. That Pollard isn’t the old-fashioned self who has come close to perfecting World Cup wins time and time again. Instead, the pivots were inconsistent and sometimes unreliable.

Meanwhile, Jantjies, who was also thrown into the game against Wales. After a few months of injury, is a questionable option at the Test level.

The former Lion was an outstanding rugby player and one of the best fly-halves in attack. But his style never mixed with the Springbok lineup as he did at the club level.

This begs the question, what about the World Cup? Granted, in the URC squad there is no outright bout for a half-court spot like Evan Roos at number 8. But it’s risky to pick two halves that aren’t at their best.

Chris Smith

Bringing Bulls forward Chris Smith could be an option. The 27-year-old is not yet ready for Test rugby, but his fundamentals are excellent and he offers a similar package to Morne Steyn, with his kicks and goals solid. Put him on a bigger list of intense workouts and get to know the system. Because when disaster strikes, Smith is closer to where he needs to be. Rugby World Cup 2023 fans can buy South Africa Vs Tonga Tickets from our website.

Willemse was the half-court fix and could be great this weekend. But if the 24-year-old is injured or suspended this week. Nienaber will be a lifesaver. Of course, there will always be Frans Steyn to fill the void. But for all the tribute to the legendary Springbok. It will be difficult to defend the World Cup with the 35-year-old fly-half.

The situation isn’t as dire as this article suggests. But the ramifications of the decisions the Springboks coaching staff are making now will intensify. As his team progresses to France 2023, and if his team is to defend their title, Nienaber must step up. There’s a reason the Webb Ellis Trophy is only defended once.

Springbok rugby hooker Malcolm Marx could be the next big name to head to France

Malcolm Marx could be the next Bok to go to France

According to reports, Springbok hooker Malcolm Marx could be the next big name to head to France in search of a lucrative top 14 contract.

According to Midi Olympique, Marx is an important target for at least the top 14 teams. Rumours that ASM Clermont is looking to lose their wallets to a high-level No. 2, and the 50-cap Springbok. Whose contract expires in the summer of 2023, have clearly piqued their interest.

Marx is currently competing for the Springboks rugby starting shirt with Bongi Mbonambi, who is an integral part of Jacques Nienaber’s roster, and any transfer will take place after next year’s Rugby World Cup in France. The 27-year-old is currently under contract with Japan’s Kubota Spears and will play one season with the NTT Shining Arcs in 2020.

Unlike other countries, Springboks doesn’t have a strict policy banning foreign players from participating in Springboks training camps. So while playing abroad doesn’t necessarily help, exclusion from Test Rugby isn’t necessarily an issue.

Of course, South African rugby is not the only team to lose players from the north. After the sport’s flagship event in 2023. There could be a slew of stars in the southern hemisphere looking to move to Europe.

The regular four-year immigration cycle could also include All Blacks superstar Beauden Barrett and nervous prop Nepo Laulala, who are reported to be weighing both deals with the French club.

Some of the current All Blacks – including Laulala, Barrett, Brodie Retallick, Sam Whitelock, Aaron Smith and Richie Mo’unga – are currently under contract until the end of 2023. This could prevent them from going to the 2027 Rugby World Cup. They will certainly keep an eye on major contracts from France and Japan.

Bongi Mbonambi scored a goal, substitute Malcolm Marx made two passes for ‘Boks – technically the home side of the match – and Handré Pollard scored three penalties, but converted only once in three attempts.

As for the All Blacks’ 39-0 win over Argentina, as the score between the team and New Zealand was 7.45 points, the final score had no real impact on the rankings – New Zealand’s five tries belonged to Rieko Ioane, Sevu Reece, and Dalton Papalii and Luke Jacobson (Luke Jacobson) support-designated by Sanzaar as the home team.

Faf de Klerk: ‘South Africa want to point out we deserved to win World Cup’

There are many major problems about which it is up to Faf de Klerk. But first of all the first things. How much is the South African blonde bombshell looking forward to the return of hair salons? The Rugby fans can buy South Africa Rugby World Cup Tickets from our website at exclusively discounted prices.

“It was a nightmare,” he replies, slowly exuberantly.

“I would like them to reopen. I’ve always had long hair, but it’s too long. I tried all sorts – tie it up, Alice bands – but it was uncomfortable. I’m very excited.”

It is easy to understand Faf’s impatience, in all respects, to rethink his roots. South Africa won the Rugby World Cup 17 months ago since the Springboks failed to play a single test. The 29-year-old last saw his parents at home a year ago and spent the winter lockout in Manchester alone. Even his typical temperamental nature – “It quite difficult” – painfully tested. For South Africa Rugby World Cup tickets visit eticketing.co.

But finally, there are light shafts. The British &Irish Lions tour will take place in South Africa in July and August. And is on the horizon and the world’s most famous scrum-half can’t wait. ‘It’s much more open there at the moment than it is here. But we really don’t know what’s going to happen. It’s all up to the SA government. Fans or no fans, the Boks want to show that their triumph in 2019 was no accident.

“We want to show that we deserved it, that it wasn’t just luck in the draw.”

His club Sale Sharks, meanwhile are desperate to prove something, starting with a champions cup weekend trip to West Wales. Where the Scarlet’s will escape. Win and for the second time in the club’s history, they will be involved in the last eight European club competitions. As Sharks director of rugby Alex Sanderson bluntly says:

“Sales have always been an outsider. If we win, it is because someone else played badly. I think it’s going to make us all a little sick.”

Last season’s disappointment – was when the Sharks drove out of the Premiership play-offs by the Covid-19 outbreak. And has also been fuelled by the northern fires and De Klerk. Although he is from Nelspruit rather than Northenden, is just as motivated as anyone. “That’s how I feel for sure. We’ve been gradually increasing over the last three seasons, but we want to be the dominant force. We want to get away from the whole.

“Sell is just shabby north side playing rugby” atmosphere.

We want to take that sign off our shoulders. And be one of the best teams in the Premiership. The fans can also buy Rugby World Cup final Tickets from eticketing.

Not that de Klerk, sharp as a dag, needs a second invitation to make it difficult for him. But perceptions can be misleading: much challenging homework becomes the world’s biggest irritating rugby on the field. I’m sure. I’ll look at the opposition nine and see if there are any qualities. I can catch to put him under pressure. Let’s just say nine tends to run from the base. If he changes direction, maybe I’ll stand in his eye or get in his way. I’ll be careful in attack if the attackers are slowly off base or if there’s room in the backfield. In fact, I’m trying to find every advantage I can get.”

And if all this doesn’t work, then maybe a little chat. “Gloucester had a young nine trying to tell me something and then kicked two balls straight into contact. That was a great opportunity to say, “yes, you wanted to tell me something, and now look what happened!” Some guys like to talk, but it can affect others. I try to play it when I can.” Which opponent does he enjoy the most when he gets his wits about him? “A lot of nines prefer to stuck with bigger guys because they know there’s nothing they can do. But I like playing Danny care because of the threat he poses. He’s always a tough guy to play against.”

Scarlet’s and Wales scrum-half Gareth Davies should consider a warning. De Klerk may have won the World Cup – he stripped down to his underpants and then chatted with Prince Harry – but he still longs for more.

You can’t just win a World Cup and then play rugby like you don’t know how to do it.”

Although he is only 170cm tall, nothing brings him out of madness – his mother Corrie describes him as “a little Jack Russell, but with the heart of a lion” – and his four years in England have made him even better, he says. It definitely made me a better player. When I first started here. I wasn’t in the role I have now to control the game and be a leader… I’m sure that’s developed my game a lot. If you think about improving, I think you’ll always grow.”

“We are finally able to compete, and that’s the exciting thing,” de Klerk said.

“I think it will very close to the quality of Test matches with players as both teams have now.”

Every time he’s involved in a big game. It’s rarely worth betting against the smallest man on the field. www.eticketing.co is the best website for World Cup 2023 tickets. The Rugby fans can buy Rugby World Cup Tickets 2023 from our website at massively discounted prices.

Most memorable match

For pure drama, the 1995 final against New Zealand will overshadow one of the Springbok’s finals against England. The score was 9-9 at full-time and 12-12 in overtime. The fate of the Webb Ellis Cup remained undecided until Joel Stransky got the ball from Joost van der Westhuizen. And made history for himself and the Springboks.

Iconic moment

While the sight of Nelson Mandela presenting. The Webb Ellis Cup to Francois Pienaar in the Springbok captain’s number six jersey in 1995. And will forever remain an iconic image of the Rugby World Cup, Siya Kolisi leads the Springboks to victory in 2019, as the team’s first black captain is also there.

Low point

Ten places and just over 13 points were shared by the sides of the rugby world rankings as South Africa. And Japan met on the second day of RWC 2015. Japan has not won an RWC competition since 1991, while South Africa became world champions in both 1995 and 2007. No one prayed for the Brave Blossoms. But the form came out of the window as the Springboks succumbed to the biggest shock in tournament history. Losing 34-32 on Karne Hesketh’s last try.

Iconic player

Chester Williams. Now sadly dead, Williams became only the third non-white player to play for the Springboks in 1993. Two years later, he was a reluctant poster boy for the 1995 Rugby World Cup. The injury delayed his participation in the 1995 RWC until the quarter-finals. But he immediately impressed with four tries against Samoa and then played a key role in the semi-finals and finals.

Record-breaker

Anyone who shares a record with Jonah Lomu should be good, very good. And Bryan Habana definitely falls into that category. The lightning-fast winger equaled Lomu’s record in most tournament attempts. And compiling his hat-trick in a 64-0 win over the U.S. at RWC 2015 and glittering a total of 15 points.

Jannie de Beer’s nap against England in the 1999 quarter-finals is a record for a single Rugby World Cup match.

Quote

“I got down on my knees to pray quickly, and before I knew it, everyone was around me. All the tension in those six weeks, everything that led to the final, came just upfront. It was very, very emotional. I was incredibly proud of the team, proud of the moment. And very proud to be a Springbok rugby player.” – Francois Pienaar, after the Springboks won the 1995 RWC final.
