Alan and Cecil Africa

It took 3 attempts before South Africa won the home leg of the HSBC Sevens World Series on 8 December 2013 by beating New Zealand 17-14 in the final game at Port Elizabeth’s Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium (Match report HERE).

Whilst the Springboks were on their victory lap around the stadium thanking the spectators for their support I got the chance to have a quick photo – thanks to Derrick Spies – snapped with a son of Missionvale, Port Elizabeth, Cecil Africa, who has been responsible for many thrilling moments on and off the field. Cecil also does some great and hilarious impersonations of hapless media persons interviewing members of the team, nuff said.

As I post this image I cannot help but think of my Mother, Annette who openly tells me that Cecil Africa is hot, hot, hot – not quite the thing someone my age wants to hear from his Mother as I like to think that she improved on the feat of Mary Magdalene by having FOUR virgin births ………..
