Glenwood Coach Ranked Amongst The Best!

"I learnt teaching from the teachers. I learnt golf from golfers.

Shoulders - Your Blades Of Glory

Sporting Mercenaries?

South Africans representing other countries on the world stage are hardly a new phenomenon. In fact it has gone on for over a century. Whether due to political isolation, immigration, or colonial affiliation, it has long been a fixture on our sporting landscape.Basil De Oliveira and Alan Lamb were England legends. Robin Smith was a Durbanite a Northwood schoolboy. Yet we showed no ill feeing towards them. We wished them well (provided it wasn't against us).

Never before has South Africa enjoyed such a wealth of talent and success in cricket than in 2009. For the first time the country  had in the Protea's,  a team that were ranked the best cricket team in the world, a team which had beaten every side put before them.  Such euphoria over the national team would mean little if there was not a genuine belief that South Africa...

Cayley Tonkin - Passion Personified

If you were to look back at South African national sports teams since the post-isolation era you would find with almost certain regularity that they shared one thing in common. Hell, if you had to look at national teams around the world you would find a similar trend since professionalism began to boom. The common denominator being that in almost every instance each member of the team had already finished school.
