Gerber: Boks are heroes

Legendary Springbok centre Danie Gerber has hailed the current Springbok team as his heroes.

Gerber today handed out the jerseys to the players at a ceremony at the Bok hotel on Friday morning. He encouraged them to do their best tomorrow and said they should be proud to be members of the Springbok team.

“You are my heroes,” Gerber told the team. “Tomorrow I will be sitting in the stands with my son cheering for you. It is going to be a big game. I am confident you will do well.”
