Cape Town - Although his focus is very much on the Rio de Janeiro Olympics and South Africa’s pursuit of a gold medal, Blitzboks skipper Kyle Brown has found time to lee an eye on the new Springbok squad, and is extremely excited about what lies ahead for 15-man game under new coach Allister Coetzee.

“I’m really excited about that squad. If there’s one word to sum up the feeling, it’s energy,” Brown says on The Dan Nicholl Show, showing on SuperSport 1 at 19:00 on Wednesday.

“There’s a great new energy, and a whole new era,” Brown continues.  

“There’s so much talent floating around the Super Rugby teams, and in a younger age category, as opposed to the older age category

“We’ve got a good four, six, eight years ahead of us to look forward to.”

Brown also pays tribute to the “good people, not just good rugby players”, who make up the Blitzboks squad, and is upbeat about South Africa’s chances about the Olympic Games.

The sevens rugby star is joined on Wednesday’s show by miracle cyclist Grant Lottering, who was declared medically dead in a crash in the Alps, but has returned to become an inspirational rider, speaker and fundraiser. Offsetting Lottering’s remarkable story is comedian Tats Nkonzo, the former host of SA’s Got Talent, who is in sparkling form as he discusses life in South Africa, watching cricket at Newlands, and his dream of hosting an Afrikaans game show.

Former Miss South Africa also joins the show after a recent trip on the Blue Train with host Dan Nicholl and comedian Stuart Taylor, and members of UJ’s victorious Varsity Cup hockey team and the Laureus YES project also make an appearance.
