Springbok rugby Coach Alister Coetzee has invited Protea's Bouncer Faizel Aslam to join the Boks at a special training session this week. Aslam will be swapping his Ipad for shinpads after handing off hefty Channel 9 News reporter Mitch Kelly.
The incident was caught on video by Youtuber JessiLuvsTheBiebs57 and went viral. Backline coach Zwandile Stick was trolling the Internet late Sunday night looking for coaching ideas and stumbled across the video. Stick immediately Whatsapped Coetzee a link to the clip.
"We have been looking for someone who can protect our fragile backline and Faizel looks like the guy," said Coetzee. The meddling Aussie journo was trying to get at Faf who was eating sweets at the time and listening to AB de Villier's latest single "Shine On Boyz!"
After being dealt their first ever defeat by Italy on Saturday the Boks are in serious need of a boost and Aslam's timing could not have been better.
