Boks on the Box

Not able to get to the land of the long white cloud for the 7th edition of the Rugby World Cup? Not to worry … Sport24 has it well and truly covered from an online and mobile perspective (Check out our World Cup Section), while SuperSport are going to dish up a veritable television feast!

My absolute favourite is the new RWC show “Toks ‘n Tjops”, which will see Toks van der Linde and co-host Breyton Paulse take to the airwaves on kykNet on match days. Theuns Jordaan, Robbie Wessels and Bok van Blerk will also be part of the mix, ensuring it’s not too serious.

SuperSport will present the most advanced Rugby World Cup in broadcast history, harnessing the latest developments to ensure that all 48 matches will be broadcast live and in High Definition.

SuperSport’s team in New Zealand will include Kobus Wiese, Matt Pearce, Bob Skinstad, Xola Ntshinga, Owen Nkumane, former All Black captain Taine Randell, and Lady Rugga, Elma Smit.

Guests will include Justin Marshall, Ian Jones, Naas Botha, Joel Stransky, Breyton Paulse, John Mitchell, Pieter de Villiers,  Frederic Michalak, Carlos Spencer, Tiaan Strauss and Kees Lensing.

SuperSport 1 and SuperSport HD1 will be 24-hour rugby channels during the World Cup, with select matches, including all Springbok fixtures, available on SuperSport 4 and kykNET with daily highlights on SuperSport 4 and DStv’s Magic World. Commentary will be available in English (all), Afrikaans (all) and Xhosa (select) and the international feed.

The other programmes on the go for the duration of the event are:

SuperFan: A daily half-hour post-match interactive show using all new media elements. Hosted by Derek Alberts and a Lady Rugga finalist, SuperFan targets new media consumers who may be at the office or at home and would like to go online and communicate with like-minded individuals.

Master Plan: Anchored by Joel Stransky, this will be a weekly show focussing on the technical side of the game, with discussions focused on tactics, strategy, game plans and analyses. Guest lined up include Heyneke Meyer, Allister Coetzee, Garth Wright, John Mitchell and a number of referees.

Kia Ora: A daily show broadcast from a waterfront studio in Auckland and in SA, hosted by either Matthew Pearce or Kobus Wiese. Taine Randell, Bob Skinstad and Owen Nkumane will make regular appearances, as will other top former internationals.
