Fans went “Bok” for Springbok signing session

Published by

A huge crowd of fans and media gathered for the #BoksInASICS Springbok Signing Session that was held at Sportsman’s Warehouse in Tygervalley, Cape Town, on 9 July. The event was held ahead of the Springbok match against the World XV at Newlands Stadium on 11 July.
Springbok squad members recently held a signing session at Sportsman’s Warehouse in Tygervalley Cape Town.
The staff of Sportsman’s Warehouse wore their green and gold proudly.
The fans - from babies to grannies - came out in their green and gold to meet and greet Springbok squad members Faf de Klerk, Eben Etzebeth, Zane Kirchner, Frans Malherbe, Lionel Mapoe and Tendai ‘Beast’ Mtawarira - the queue went right around the large store and was nearly out the doors.

Even the tiny tots were out taking pictures with our country’s sporting heroes.

De Klerk made sure a fan got the picture he wanted taken with him. 
A group of young boys made sure they got their “selfie” moment with every one of the players at the signing.
The Master of Ceremonies Jean Willers, radio presenter and MC for Varsity Sports, kept the fans entertained with jokes and by asking players one or two questions that allowed the crowd to get to know more about them and their experiences testing and helping with the development of their kit at the ASICS Sports Science Institute in Kobe, Japan.

The experience in Japan was awesome, said Etzebeth. A Japanese restaurant he and Beast visited in their time off had to specially import a few extra cows for the two of them, he joked. 
Etzebeth recalls what he did in his spare time in Japan.
The Bokkie mascot was also a crowd favourite as he performed various rugby moves such as tackles, scrums, etc. with fans waiting to meet their sporting heroes.
