New Madibaz role for for­mer Bok

The Herald (South Africa) - - Horse Racing -

Thando Manana’s pas­sion for rugby will stand him in good stead as he throws his weight be­hind a cam­paign to put the pride back into Madibaz rugby.

The for­mer Spring­bok flank was re­cently elected pres­i­dent of the Madibaz Rugby Club, tak­ing over the hot seat at a time when the var­sity’s pre­mier team have been rel­e­gated to the Var­sity Shield.

In­volved in rugby from an early age, the 41-year-old rugby fa­natic feels the Madibaz need to work hard to en­sure they are the lead­ing rugby in­sti­tu­tion in the East­ern Cape, with a place in the top five var­sity sides in the coun­try among his long-term goals.

Manana said he and his ex­ec­u­tive were pre­pared to put in the hard work to en­sure the Madibaz jersey “be­come great again”.
