J&B MET 2010

Readers of these columns will recall our piece of yesterday, where we spoke of Springbok coaches Jake White and Andre Maakgraaff, and the “wildebeest catcher”, Tiaan Strauss, among the many we’d spent time with at the J&B Met. Add to the list international rugby’s Player of the Year in 2008, Bryan Habana; the man that torpedoed the All Blacks’ 1995 World Cup hopes with his titanic drop goal in extra time, Joel Stransky, and double Olympic Gold medallist swimmer, Roland Schoeman, and you begin to understand the allure of a good event. In South Africa at least, the Met remains a “must do” on the cv’s of even the most celebrated.
