“I am who I am today because of opportunities of the foundation that I was given to me by the Southern Kings. I know we are all going through times at the moment but what you guys are going through at the moment is really, really painful. To be in that position with your families.”
This is according to Mzwandile Wanky Stick, backline coach of the Springboks, who is donating his original Springbok jersey to Care 4 Kings.
This follows the launch of the Care 4 Kings fundraising initiative by Braam van Straaten, also a former Springbok rugby player and former coach of the Southern Kings. Read more about the initiative here.
Springbok’s dominated 2019
Stick’s support for this initiative comes in the wake of the remembrance of the massive victory by South Africa, who dominated the world cup in 2019. A powerful SuperSport documentary, made in collaboration with the Springboks, tells the rousing tale of their path to redemption and World Cup glory in 2019.
Now YOU the supporter can bid on this special jersey that made history.
Stick further says he donates this jersey, because he wants to show that his heart is with the liquidated Southern Kings players.
Put your money where your mouth is
“I am 100 % in support and I feel the pain. I am donating this jersey for you guys to fundraise and anything that you guys can get from it to support your families it will really really help. I want to ask all the people out there, the supporters, business people, who love and care for the kings, to make sure you put your money where your mouth is. This is the jersey. A historical jersey in South Africa. A world cup running team. Please. Let’s make sure we support the Kings. And I am with you gentlemen in heart and with everything. And once again, let’s be strong. As we always say in Springbok rugby, we are stronger together.”
