MB Lusaseni exclusive Part1: "I got paid R2K, others got R700 playing pro rugby"

Former Lions and Junior Springbok lock MB Lusaseni revealed how much he used to earn as an entry level rugby player from the Eastern Cape when he arrived at one of the biggest rugby academies in the country.

Moreover, he was playing for the Junior Springboks with the likes of Lionel Mapoe, which was coached by Eric Sauls. In this thrilling MB Lusaseni exclusive Part1, the East London-born lock also spoke about what part agents played in blindsiding some of the naiive young black rugby players who broke into the academy and tried to make a living for themselves. 

SportsLIVE podcast host Sbu Mjikeliso rates this candid interview as one of the Top 5 Best interviews he's had since he became a journalist in 2006. From a person who has interviewed the likes of Bryan Habana, Victor Matfied, Tiyani Mabunda and many others, this says a lot.

We also spoke to resident Man United fan and Sunday Times sports writer Khanyiso Tshwaku about United's flattering 4-0 win over Chelsea in the opening weekend of the English Premier League.

Plus: The return of King Siya Kolisi.
