Min Nathi Mthethwa has weighed in to also compliment both Banyana Banyana and Springboks for their resent achievements.
Our Ladies national team (Banyana Banyana) this past Sunday, successfully defended and retained their Cosafa Cup title by beating Zambia 1-0 at Wolfson Stadium in Port Elizabeth.
The Desiree Ellis’ players through her tactical guidance and discipline, managed to defend their solitary goal until the final whistle.
By the end of the COSAFA CUP final, the match was 1 – 0 in favour of Banyana Banyana making them COSAFA Cup hat trick champions.
On the rugby front in SALTA, Argentina, South Africa walloped for the first time in this competitions Argentina 46-13 to win the Rugby Championship trophy.
The Springboks last won a competition 10years ago which is back in 2009.
As for our senior Rugby national team (AmaBokoboko) especially as they will be taking on Australia on home soil this coming Saturday in preparation of this year Japan Rugby World Cup, I must say that they have indeed started on a positive note and they shouldn’t take their foot off the pedal. This Saturday they will be playing against the same national team that they just defeated and that win will be equally important. Both this National teams wins have indeed brought to our nation a breath of fresh air and I can only hope that they both continue in making us proud. Congratulations once more to both our national teams”, Stated Minister Nathi Mthethwa.
