Roeshdien aka Mr Jaz to deliver great show on Saturday 28th November

The day to diarise is Saturday 28 November at the Reeler Theatre at Rondebosch Boys High School.

That’s when the “Perfect Mood”, “Feel For life”, “Inside ’n Out” and “Love is in The house” hit maker, along with his 6-piece band, will return to The Reeler Theatre at Rondebosch Boys High School for the official live performance tribute of a song, inspired by 16 Days of Activism called “#BeAMan”, written and produced by one of South Africa’s legendary songwriters, author of Crack the Songwriting Code, and founder of the Cape Town School of Songwriting, Clive Ridgway.

Besides penning Mr Jaz’ brand new hit, Ridgway has written hit singles for the likes of Judith Sephuma, Jonathan Butler, Kurt Darren, Blackbyrd, Dr Victor & the Rasta Rebels, Selim Kagee in amongst a host of others.

The show will play out a fusion of jazz, soul, funk, reggae, spoken word, conscious hip hop and promises patrons music with socially conscious lyrics and loads of commercial appeal.

“It’s a show where like-minded people can connect, share and most importantly take some time out to celebrate the gift of life,” Roeshdien explains. “I will be performing all my popular radio singles, and also pay special tribute to some of my biggest inspirations: Supadan (a band founded by well-known Cape Town born international musician, Brendan Adams and managed by Roeshdien back in 2003), as well as Lauren Hill, Sergio Mendes, Jamiroquai and his ultimate inspiration, Robert Nesta Marley.

This will also be the final Mr Jaz’ final live performance for the year, before he turns his attention to the release of his much anticipated debut album in March 2016, titled The Gratitude Café.

Add the promise of surprise special guests and fans can expect a night like no other!

Tickets are available via Computicket (R150) Limited seats are still available so book now to avoid disappointment.

His two popular radio singles, “Inside ‘N Out” and “Love Is In The House” are currently available on iTunes. Three of his songs are also featured in the popular South African weekday soapie, Isidingo.

Official press statement -Eddie Jones has left WP

Western Province Rugby has agreed terms with the Rugby Football Union which will see Eddie Jones depart to take on an international coaching post with England.

There has been plenty of speculation about Jones’s future ever since his arrival in Cape Town earlier this month and he officially received an offer on Wednesday of this week which proved impossible to turn down.

“While this is very disappointing for us all at WP Rugby and the DHL Stormers, Eddie is quite clearly the most sought-after coach in world rugby and this is the biggest and most lucrative job in international rugby,” said Western Province Rugby Football Union President, Mr Thelo Wakefield.

“Despite all the speculation since the World Cup, and given what he achieved with Japan during RWC 2015, Eddie came to us on Wednesday with an offer from the RFU, which was simply impossible for any coach to turn down.

“It’s a big pity to lose Eddie before he has even had an opportunity to make his mark here but you cannot keep someone against his will, whilst also competing with the richest rugby union at the same time,” said Mr Wakefield.

Jones will assist Western Province Director of Rugby Gert Smal with on-field preparation and planning in December, with Smal now overseeing the team’s off-season programme.

“Of course it is not ideal to lose your coach before you have even begun your pre-season campaign in earnest… we are well aware of that,” said Wakefield.

Looking ahead, Director of Rugby, Smal, added: “For now, I will oversee the team’s off-season preparations. The assistant coaches, management team and playing body remain unaffected and all planning is in place.

“Amazingly enough I have already had contact from some big-name coaches (this week) and I will, once again, look both internally and externally before continuing to plot the way ahead for WP Rugby and the DHL Stormers.”

Eddie Jones commented: “When I was appointed at WP Rugby there was no vacancy within the RFU and I never envisaged this opportunity to come forward. So while I am excited about the opportunity to coach England – in arguably the biggest international coaching job in world rugby – I’m very disappointed to be leaving the DHL Stormers.

“I remain very grateful to WP Rugby for this opportunity and I would sincerely like to apologise to anyone that might have been affected by my sudden decision to leave Cape Town – the WPRFU Executive Committee, the WP Rugby Board of Directors, my fellow coaches, the players, the union’s stakeholders and The Faithful, all of whom have treated me so well in my short stay.

“And while it might sound like lip-service to some I am absolutely convinced that the talent amongst the coaching and playing staff here will continue to see Western Province excel at all levels in the future.”

The DHL Stormers are currently in the conditioning phase of their off-season programme, with the players training until mid-December before taking a proper pre-season holiday.

The squad will reconvene for pre-season training in early January 2016, with the DHL Stormers’ 2016 Vodacom Super Rugby season getting underway against the Bulls on February 27.

South African rugby on Thursday paid tribute to All Black captain Richie McCaw,

Rugby on Thursday paid tribute to All Black captain Richie McCaw, who announced his retirement from the game after a career which spanned 148 Tests and two Rugby World Cup triumphs.

if you go to my website and look on the home page I have a 20min interview with Mighty McCaw from March 2011 in Cape Town

The 34-year-old McCaw, who made his Test debut in 2001 against Ireland in Dublin, will go down in history as the most decorated rugby player ever. His 148 Tests is the most by any player and he was on the winning side 131 times for the All Blacks.

McCaw captained New Zealand in 110 Tests, a world record, and under his captaincy, the All Blacks won the Bledisloe Cup 10 times, as well as seven Castle Lager Rugby Championship / Tri Nations titles, two Grand Slams and two Rugby World Cups.

“Richie’s record is nothing short of phenomenal and we would like to congratulate him on an exceptional career for New Zealand, the Crusaders and Canterbury,” said Mr Oregan Hoskins, president of the South African Rugby Union (SARU).

“Richie played against the Springboks 26 times we were on the receiving end of his ability 20 times – no player has beaten the Springboks more than him. Ever since he made his Super Rugby debut for the Crusaders way back in 2001, South African teams have been trying to figure out how to get the better of him.

“But the real measure of a rugby giant of the game isn’t always his statistics and records, rather how he is seen by his peers and here in South Africa he is very highly regarded. Our players have nothing but praise and admiration for his achievements.

“His superb record speaks for itself and he was in a class of his own for more than a decade. To say he is the greatest All Black ever is an apt description of a man who gave everything he had to the game we all love. We would like to wish him well for the next chapters in his life.”

Springbok captain Jean de Villiers, who announced his retirement from Test rugby almost two months ago at the Rugby World Cup following an injury, said McCaw can be very proud of his achievements on the rugby field.

“We all know that at some stage we will have to hang up our boots and say good-bye to this game we love so much,” said De Villiers.

“All we then have left are memories and Richie can be immensely proud of the memories he has helped create on and off the field.

“He has been superb and what he has achieved on the field, as an individual and as captain of the All Blacks, is nothing short of unbelievable. The whole of New Zealand can be very proud of him. Richie will probably go down as the best who has ever played his game and his achievements will last forever.”

Richie McCaw’s goodbye

Richie McCaw’s long, slow goodbye finally comes to an end
It was hardly a shocking development. One way or another, Richie McCaw had been retiring all season. Thursday was simply the day he confirmed it, to warm applause from some of the media present at New Zealand Rugby’s (NZR) Molesworth Street offices.

From the lack of a contract extension with NZR, rumours of a deal with a foreign club, to the documentary crew that trailed him everywhere in recent times and finally the post-World Cup photos the All Blacks’ other retirees, there was plenty to indicate McCaw had come to the end.

He said he needed the World Cup victory just to finally confirm in his mind that he’d done everything he wanted and would be walking away for the right reasons.

Richie McCaw, centre, flanked by Steve Hansen, left, and Steve Tew at Thursday’s retirement announcement.

Not every player gets that luxury. Injuries or the selectors’ axe hit them long before then. But McCaw was no ordinary player, nor ordinary ambassador for NZR, and couldn’t be begrudged the exit of his choosing, even if Jonah Lomu’s death lent a slightly awkward air to the occasion.

“Today’s not exactly as we planned,” NZR chief executive Steve Tew said, before asking the room to rise and acknowledge Lomu with a moment’s silence.

When it came time to talk again, it was McCaw who took the floor and Lomu was the topic.

That was right and proper. McCaw is a greatly respected and admired figure whose conduct, as much as his rugby, have been testament to his qualities as a man. In that respect, his parents might be prouder of that than the 148 test matches and two successful World Cup campaigns as All Blacks captain.

But Lomu was a hero the world over and that elevates him above even McCaw. Not for the only time in his career, McCaw had the humility to recognise that the moment belonged to someone else.

There were several nice touches from then on, particularly the video tributes from Springboks captain Jean de Villiers and Crusaders coach Todd Blackadder. McCaw doesn’t wear his heart on his sleeve so it was interesting to see how Blackadder’s words affected him.

Some team environments are all about the individual. But the team comes first at the Crusaders and, in that respect, McCaw said he found the perfect home when he went north from Otago Boys’ High School.

Tew and Steve Hansen, who flanked McCaw once the press conference portion of Thursday’s announcement began, have been with him virtually ever since. If there were visible signs of sadness, they came from Tew.

A great rugby career wasn’t just coming to an end but a great era in New Zealand rugby as well. McCaws don’t grow on trees and Tew was happy to admit he owed some of his own climb from the Canterbury Rugby Union to NZR, to the day when Hansen marched into his office at Lancaster Park and said “I don’t care how much he costs, we’ve got to get him.”

Hansen, then head of Canterbury’s academy system, didn’t even know McCaw’s name. He just knew the kid could play. Sixteen years on, the kid’s decided to play no more.
