The magic behind the Blitzboks

Wed, 11 Apr 2018 07:41

WATCH as special guest Blitzbok stalwart Chris Dry opens the Springbok Sevens door and reveals how they manage to consistently be at the top of their game, especially when new players are drafted into the main team.

Late Tackle, the talk show with a difference, brings in various personalities from all over the rugby world each week to dissect hot topics and provide unique insight into the professional game.

Dry, who boasts 64 tournament caps for the Blitzboks, is currently undergoing rehab on a knee ligament injury he sustained at the Cape Town Sevens - the second stop on the 10 leg World Sevens Series.

He opens up about how he had no interest in playing the shorter format in the sixth minute, just before Morgan Newman is let loose on the poor Stormers performances in the eighth minute.

Dry touches on what makes Neil Powell such an influential coach in the ninth minute before our second guest Sharks flyhalf Robert du Preez reveals why he returned to Durban in the 13th minute.

We return to our Sevens chat from the 21st minute where everything from the Academy structure, the team culture and sustainability and the work ethic is discussed and given centre stage.

The usual Super Rugby predictions take place from the 33rd minute but would you trust a Blitzboks' calls?
