We were excited to have the opportunity to catch up with Springbok coach Peter de Villiers last week. He’s a busy man, with one of the highest profile jobs in the country- it’s often said that more people know who the national rugby coach is than the president. Whether that’s true or not these days we’re not sure, but being fans of the bok’s we sure know, and appreciated the fact that we could grab a piece of his time.
The reason was to present him with a bottle of our Tri-Nations winning Haskell Pillars Syrah 2007 as a celebration of winning the Tri-Nations rugby this year over Australia and New Zealand. For good measure he bought along the Tri-Nations trophy, and Rianie bought along hers as well for a little photo opportunity. Peter was apparently great value and we hope that he got to drink most of the bottle himself without having to share it with his forward pack!
