Episode 7: Seabelo Senatla

He’s been part of two HSBC World Sevens Series winning Blitzbok teams, he’s won an Olympic bronze medal and he is South Africa’s all-time leading sevens try-scorer with 224 tries in just 203 World Series games. But Seabelo Senatla is more than a try machine. He’s an inspiration to many, a leader in the squad and now an entrepreneur, dabbling in wine. He is also determined to become a 15s Springbok, cement himself in the Stormers squad for the 2020 Super Rugby championship and win an Olympic Games gold medal with the Blitzboks in Tokyo 2020. This week the try-glutton and all-round nice guy of rugby, joins us on the Maverick Sports Podcast.

Conversation with Paddy Upton - Part 2

This week, on the Maverick Sports podcast, we sit down for part two of our conversation with former Proteas and India cricket coach Paddy Upton. He has written a fascinating account of his journey from cricket coach to leadership mentor titled, “the Barefoot Coach”. In this two-part podcast we talk about Upton’s journey from happy-go-lucky national team fitness coach in the 1990s, to a terrifying near-death experience on Cape Town’s unforgiving streets in the early 2000s, which played a crucial part in his own personal growth. Paddy mines deeper into the concept of success and what it really means, as well as the notions of continual learning and personal mastery. Upton is motivational, inspirational and aspirational as he gives us a glimpse into the mental side of sport, business and life itself.

Welcome to episode two of the Maverick Sports Podcast hosted by Daily Maverick senior sports journalist Craig Ray alongside guest Zelim Nel. There is only one subject on the minds of all South Africans this week – the final of RWC 2019. Can the Springboks repeat the heroics of 1995 and 2007 by joining New Zealand as three-time winners of the tournament? Or is Eddie Jones’ formidable England side unstoppable, especially after the way they dismantled the All Blacks in last week’s semi-final. Nel, as a respected technical analyst, takes us through some of the numbers as we discuss the key battle areas for this monumental match-up.
