Pretoria - Rugby legend Naas Botha’s estate was provisionally sequestrated by the high court in Pretoria on Thursday, after a bank claimed he owed it more than R1.1 million on a mortgage bond for a property in Mooikloof, east of the city.

Hendrik Egnatius Botha – popularly known as Naas – was not at court, nor did he oppose the provisional sequestration application, although the papers were served on him by the sheriff.

He also did not submit an affidavit to the court setting out his possible defence.

Judge Peter Mabuse gave the retired Springbok fly-half until June 15, to oppose the application and give reasons as to why he should not be finally sequestrated.

Botha, a four-time Rugby Player of the Year winner, has been involved in a six-year financial battle with Nedbank.

In December 2009, the bank turned to court for the first time to demand that Botha and his wife, Karen, pay back the money they owed in terms of the mortgage.

His wife had obtained a bond from Nedbank in January 2006 to buy the property, and Botha signed surety for it.

As the couple defended the bank’s action, Nedbank decided to settle after the Bothas undertook to make certain payments.

Dana van Zyl, a legal adviser for Nedbank, said in court documents, that shortly after the settlement, Karen sold the property for an amount which was not enough to repay the full loan amount.

The couple also failed to make regular monthly instalments to the bank, as agreed.

At that time, the couple owed the bank R1 357 474 and was due to pay back R17 000 a month over seven years. A new agreement was then signed, in terms of which Nedbank agreed to reduce the monthly instalments to R8 500 a month.

Van Zyl said the couple once again fell in arrears and a third agreement was entered into last year. By then the amount owed was about R1.1m.

Van Zyl said the couple failed to pay the debt in March, June and July last year. The bank then decided to withdraw the agreement.

Last August, the court ordered the couple to pay the more than R1.1m, and a month later an order was issued that their movable property could be sold on execution to recover the money.

The sheriff went to the couple’s Lynnwood Park home to serve the warrant of execution. The sheriff said he gave the notice to Botha, who said he did not have money nor disposable assets.

The sheriff, having returned empty-handed, said in a statement: “No disposable assets were either pointed out to me or could be found after a diligent search.”

Van Zyl said it would be to the advantage of the creditors if the estate could be sequestrated and a trustee appointed to investigate Botha’s financial affairs.

He questioned Botha’s reported lack of funds and said the legend was a well-known television presenter, who provided commentary on rugby games, and represented the Springboks as fly-half from 1980 to 1992. “He lives in an upmarket residential area and his income is likely to be higher than average.”

Van Zyl submitted that Botha also stated on his online profile that he “drives a Toyota Prado… his favourite holiday is visiting Mickey and Minnie at Disney World and his hobby is golf, golf and more golf…”

Botha was in the past or still is a director of 42 corporate entities, he added.

According to Van Zyl, Botha had in September 2011 issued a statement to the bank reflecting his assets were valued at R16.4m. “It is strange that all these assets could have dissipated in a period of five years,” Van Zyl said.

Nedbank said it had no knowledge of his income, assets and whether Karen was gainfully employed. It said that a trustee should investigate these issues.

Karen was earlier declared insolvent by the court, after she could not repay the property debt to Nedbank.

How do you sell a property with a bond on it for such a big loss? Something not lekke indeed.

We don't know the figures involved. Can sell at a loss with the bond holders permission.

Ricardo Loubscher: From Boks to schools rugby

 

Cape Town - Ricardo Loubscher, who was Springbok backline coach in the Heyneke Meyer era, is now helping out at Pretoria Boys' High's Under-14 team.

The former Springbok wing was an assistant coach at the Bulls before serving under Meyer for four years, but has been unable to find a full-time job since his contract with SA Rugby ended.

“First prize for me is my family and also to stay in South Africa,” Loubscher told Rapport. “I have 47 Tests worth of experience value to add, and ultimately it's about whether you want to make a difference.

”I would definitely like to coach in South Africa, but if it is not destined for me, then I would have to look overseas for other options.”

Forwards coach Johann van Graan and team manager Ian Swartz are the two survivors from the Meyer era, with both having received contract extensions by SA Rugby. 

Mzwandile Stick has replaced Loubscher as Springbok backline coach.

Mzwandile Stick I notice loves to watch a game of rugby with a big bowl of Biltong. Maybe he should start getting used to taking notes of the game.

Cape Town - A group of protesters caused chaos outside SARU House in Cape Town on Wednesday calling for speedier transformation.

According to Netwerk24, police were forced to throw stun grenades after around 100 members of the African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) burst through the entrance to the building.

Protesters had arrived in Plattekloof from 08:00.

Carrying placards with phrases such as "Cricket, netball and tennis are next" and "White supremacy must fall", the ANCYL had a memorandum of demands accepted by a SA Rugby representative at around 12:00, after which protests subsided. 

South African sports minister Fikile Mbalula last month banned the federations in charge of cricket, rugby, netball and athletics in the country from hosting major international events due to them all not meeting their transformation targets following the release of the Imminent Persons Group (IPG) report.

While the protest had been scheduled some 48 hours ago, those unhappy with the speed of transformation couldn't have been impressed by yesterday's confirmation that only five of the 28-man Junior Springboks Under-20 Championship squad were black.

Fok these okes are stupid. Does this stupid cunt honestly think that getting players frpom the township will help a side beat New Zealand, these guys are just blinded by hatred that he has no clue.

Quite frankly the fans need to boycott the stadiums. The fans need to take back the power.

They don't care about beating New Zealand. It is not about how you play the game but how much you get paid.

That's what Draad has being saying. No attendance to stadiums. Attendance figures are already down, they'll hit lower. BUT SA Rugby will then call the supporters racist...cos guess besides CT, what race is the biggest supporter group...ANC hasn't yet worked that one out...except when to throw the racist card around...

There you are - go buy one.

My RWC jersey and T-shirt I gave to my garden executive who wears them with "pride"

 

http://www.sport24.co.za/Rugby/Springboks/new-look-bok-supporters-jersey-on-sale-20160512

Cape Town - The Springboks will kick off a new era under Allister Coetzee in the opening Test of the Incoming Series against Ireland on June 11 at Newlands in Cape Town.

 
The new supporters replica jersey is proudly made in South Africa for South Africans, by South Africans. The new jersey features enhanced durability and quality through updated textured fabrication.
 
The launch of the supporters replica jersey coincides with ASICS' “Want It More” worldwide marketing campaign that was launched earlier in 2016 as the Springboks prepare for the Incoming Series, which consists of three Test matches against Ireland in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth next month.
 
ASICS’ “Want It More” campaign for 2016 was filmed on location in South Africa with the country’s passion for sport serving as the ideal setting to inspire athletes both locally and worldwide to enhance and further improve their levels of performance.
 
According to Brian Kerby, the General Manager for ASICS South Africa, providing the Springboks and Springbok supporters with the best possible equipment is paramount for the company.
 
Kerby explains: “We are extremely proud to provide a locally made product that is of a world-class standard, and most importantly, to see supporters wear a jersey that is manufactured by the nation they represent.”
 
Jurie Roux, CEO of SA Rugby, said “The improved quality of the new supporters replica jersey fits with the aim of SA Rugby to consistently deliver improved performances and we are looking forward to this new apparel contributing towards a successful 2016 campaign,”

We should be giving DSTV a pass too. R800 for premium just to be able to watch the rugby is a serious rip off. The lesser packages is half and more than half cheaper. I'm going to start streaming the matches. SS is paying a lot for rugby, and is also using rugby to sell their premium package.  FCK them.
