Connect featured on the CNN World Rugby Show

Our athletes went global when the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series rolled into Cape Town, with the worldwide network stopping by.

We were delighted to welcome the CNN cameras to Cape Town when they featured our high performance athletes on their World Rugby Show.

The global news network sat down for a chat with some of our leading senior athletes.

Lukhanyo ‘Boepa’ Vokozela and Lamla Nunu spoke about their ambitious future plans on the rugby field.

They will be doing their thing in the colours of Rondebosch Boys’ High School throughout the 2018 season after being awarded scholarships at the prestigious Cape Town school.

Sesethu Mtshazi reflected on her time in Connect as well, ahead of starting her sports management course at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology.

Presenter Alex Thomas also spent time with our co-founder and director of rugby, Murray Ingram.

It’s been a long journey over the last three years and it was great to share some of our athletes’ success stories around the globe.

We’re committed to providing consistent access to quality resources and opportunities to help our youngsters fulfill their potential.

But they also need role models beyond our academy.

So it was handy that CNN were among several parties who donated tickets for our children to watch the HSBC Sevens World Series live at the Cape Town Stadium.

Our athletes had a fantastic time over the weekend of action.

And their player of the weekend? Blitzboks star Seabelo Senatla, of course!

It was the perfect way to round off 2017 and we can’t wait to show you what our athletes will be up to throughout next year and beyond.

We’d love for you to sponsor one of our high performance athletes, or make a direct donation to support the work that we do.
