You're stranded on a desert island and can only pick one Bok

From Faf to Eben, we have reached out to fellow East Coasters with a unique dilemma.

Imagine being stranded on a remote desert island with none other than a Springbok rugby player by your side. 

While it may seem like a bizarre and unlikely scenario, let's explore how such a situation could turn into an unexpected adventure...

Having a Springbok rugby player by your side while enduring the unknown elements of a fictitious island means you've got a natural leader on your side. These athletes possess qualities such as determination, discipline, and teamwork, which would be invaluable for survival.

Additionally, they're no strangers to adversity, and their problem-solving skills would come in handy for finding food, building shelter, and staying safe.

The East Coast Breakfast team have shared which Bok they would want as their island companion:

  • Darren Maule - "I would choose Faf as he eats less."
  • Sky Tshabalala- "Bongi is my pick as he will be on my kant."
  • Carmen - "I have to go with Eben. He can be put to work and can withstand manual labour."


In case you missed it, the Springboks pulled off a spectacular win by a single point - again! As you can imagine, this had our East Coast Breakfast team at the edge of their seats, desperate for the final whistle to seal the win. 

Sky made a bet, lost, and ended up getting the Rugby World Cup dates tattooed on him!
