Can Sport take you to Varsity Abroad?

Every year matrics across the country apply to South African universities. Though some look abroad, especially to the United States. In this week's episode, brought to you by Spur, Alex and Tim chat with Luca, a student hoping to study in America next year through his football, and some of the team from BrUSA, who are hoping to get him there.

We find out exactly how the collegiate system works, how it's different from SA and if we have to worry about all the great talent leaving our proud sporting country.

Tim and Luca also go head to head in the #SSSPodQuiz.
