We were all looking forward to the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan. What we did not anticipate during the month of October was that the booking sheets did not fill up as expected. Especially Saturdays and the days when the Springboks did their thing on the rugby field. After investigation, we realised that a number of members migrated to Japan to be part of the Rugby World Cup.
I know of Wikus Minnie and Johan Minnie, who went to Japan to see the first few South African games, as well as two Namibian games before they came back. Then on Sunday, we witnessed Renso Nel on World television supporting the Boks against Japan.
Please let us know who else had the time and money to be part of Rugby World Cup 2019.
Last week’s three were identified as: FLTR Andy van Wyk, Rudy Maree and Iaan Bent (non-member). The lady again remains a mystery. Thanks to Kevin Maree, Anneline du Plessis and Jan Hanekom who identified them for us.
I sincerely hope that I would receive some feedback on who the people on the photograph are. Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you recognise any of the individuals on the photographs.

Sexes are similar, but non-breeding adults and juveniles are browner in colour, with a white belly. Some southern races retain the crest all year round.
