WATCH: Bok-Proteas double — dare we dream?

The Springboks and Proteas have given South African sports fans plenty to cheer about in recent weeks.

What a euphoric week for South African sport. Another dramatic chapter written in our rugby history by Siya Kolisi and his men at the Stade de France in Paris last Saturday.

World Champions for a record fourth time – yes, it has a lovely ring to it.

With a sequence of impressive results, Temba Bavuma and the Proteas cricket team are also well on their way to the knockout phase of the Cricket World Cup in India.

Join host Trevor Cramer, Head of Citizen Sport Jacques van der Westhuyzen and senior Citizen sports writer Wesley Botton for another instalment of your weekly podcast TALKING POINT.

Jacques picks up the post-World Cup rugby debate with among others, his takeaways from the tournament which has had rugby fans glued to their TVs for the past seven weeks, the way forward for Springbok rugby, where to now for Rassie, bridging the generation gap and the new format of the competition in 2027.

Wesley looks at among a cluster of issues, the progress of the Proteas in India, that phenomenon called Quinton de Kock, coach Rob Walter’s mandate to the players to go out and express themselves and play with freedom and the big question – can they finally unshackle themselves from a very unwanted tag and win a major international trophy?
