Half-time Chat with Siv & Corne Krige
Corne Krige was Springbok captain during one of the most tumultuous periods in South African rugby post-1994. Despite those challenges, the Zambian-born Krige ended his rugby career as a legend in green and gold. Having retired from rugby relatively early at the age 30, Krige has navigated the past 15 years of his life with the same tenacity in which he played the game.
In his sit-down chat with Siv, Corne reflects on the rugby lessons he applies in life and business, not drawing his identity from temporary positions and what true change means for him.
