Just your average braaing crew with a rugby problem.
2 cents Ronnie (Left)
Ronnie is by far the sharpest tool in the toolbox. Frequently adding his 2 cents to any conversation, he brings a wealth of knowledge to all things “Rugby”. Ronnie is well versed in challenging the opinions and insights from the “expert” punt-it’s he engages with. He has been around the block, and round again, and brings humor with his well thought out and structured arguments to the podcast discussions.
Ronnie is a rugby fanatic and has not missed a Springbok test match at South Africa’s rugby fortress, Emirates Airline (Ellis) Park, since 2011. In addition he has toured with the Springbok team to Mbombela, Cape Town, Durban, Pretoria, Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth and has set his sights on becoming an integral international Springbok rugby fan – he has no doubt his unique insights have the ability to take the Springbok’s to a whole new level of awesomeness.
Manager Jeff (right)
Hailing from the rugby heartland that is the North West, I attended the University of Pretoria, where I coached and played rugby during the course of my studies. As an avid Sharks fan, I never missed an opportunity to annoy the Loftus faithful whenever the coastal boys were in town to face the Bulls.
Having played in the front row my whole life, where it is well established all the smartest men play, I am always looking to engage and, what better way to do so, than via podcast and blog.
After travelling with my good friend Ronnie to most of the Bok’s home games over the last decade, it hit home just how great the South African rugby landscape is. After being involved with some of rugby’s biggest social media platforms over the last 5 years, I decided to establish The Rugby Punt-it, in order to put a uniquely South African spin on things.
Since we all know that my fellow hosts aren’t too smart, I joined the team to bring a little bit of finesse and brains to the operation. I was in school with Nick and had the unpleasant experience of meeting Ronnie during our varsity years. Whilst the boys can talk about rugby all day long, it was the brains they needed and I was happy to oblige. An integral part of the braaing crew that definitely has a rugby problem, I have the boys backs as we bring you the best in rugby, daily.
