Cape Town - Bulls and Springbok prop Trevor Nyakane believes he’s put the early bumps in the road behind him in his career, and is looking forward to many more years in a Springbok jersey.

Nyakane appears on The Dan Nicholl Show on SuperSport on Wednesday night, and gives an honest assessment of his career to date.

“I had my ups and downs, I was a bit naughty at times,” Nyakane confesses.

“It was a difficult journey, and I needed to find myself, but at this point in time I think I’m living the dream, and I hope to still be doing it for next 10 or more years.”

But while Nyakane is a more focused player know, there’s still a mischievous glint in the front rower’s eye.

“I still have that little bit of naughty, but I’m good at hiding it right now,” he admits with a broad smile, before performing the highlight of the show: a tribute to Michael Jackson from a rugby player who loves to dance.

Nyakane also expresses confidence in the Vodacom Super Rugby season in store for the Bulls, and also believes that every player is back to square one with a new Springbok coach, although he does have a plan to get on the new coach’s good side.

Nyakane is joined on the show by Proteas one-day and T20 star David Miller, who gives his thoughts on the England series and the upcoming ICC World Twenty20, and former Miss South Africa and television presenter Jo-Ann Strauss, who explains the difficulties of explaining cricket to her German husband.
