SARU DP makes mockery of national achievements

EXCLUSIVE: You would think that the Deputy President of the sport’s National body would know the achievements of the various national teams, but not the DP of the South African Rugby Union.

At the opening ceremony of the 2018 Craven Week, Francois Davids delivered a speech that shocked the packed Paarl Boys’ High grandstand.

Davids stumbled through his speech to open the celebration of rugby.

As he struggled his way through his speech, Davids congratulated the “Springboks for their Series victory over Ireland and Neil Powell’s Sevens team for retaining the SABC Sevens Series.” ***

The crowd did not take kindly to those errors and corrected him immediately.

Some spectators lost interest in the opening ceremony from that point, walked away and laughed.
