Former Bok captain encourages students

Former Springbok captain Corné Krige encouraged first-year Sport & Leisure Management students to exercise self-discipline as they enter an exciting new chapter in their lives.

During a motivational talk at the Mowbray campus, the rugby legend who is now a successful businessman, encouraged the group to “work hard and play hard”.

“Personal discipline is something you must never let go of. It is when you do the right thing, even if nobody is watching. Be responsible but remember to enjoy yourself.”

Krige said South Africa needs amazing administrators in sport.

“You are the future of sport in South Africa and good luck with that responsibility. You are the future CEOs of Cricket South Africa, in soccer and in rugby, so don’t take it lightly”.

Prof Simeon Davies, Head of the Sport Management Department, said the Department was privileged to have Krige, a former CPUT student, addressing the first-years.

“It demonstrates that an ex-student of CPUT can achieve Springbok status and build the foundation for the team that won the World Cup in Japan under captain Siya Kolisi.
