The judges have set the bar high for all the acts on the new season of SA’s Got Talent. In this week’s episode, they’re on the hunt for talented performers from the country’s coastal regions.
The coastal cities brought their A-game this week, with a contortionist, an entertainment fashion act, an 11 year-old piano virtuoso, a dog trainer and her canine companion, plus many more interesting and out-of-the box acts in the episode. Performing on SA’s Got Talent can be extremely stressful, but our coastal contestants really pulled out all the stops this week to give the judges some fresh, unusual and diverse entertainment.

ASICS Ambassador and Springbok lock Eben Etzebeth will celebrate his 50th Test Match against the Wallabies in Brisbane on Saturday and in doing so will become the youngest ever player to reach this milestone.
Eben made his debut at the age of 20 against England at King’s Park in Durban on 9 June 2012 and has since established himself as the Springboks’ first choice number 4.
To commemorate the occasion Eben will be wearing specially embroided yellow GEL-Lethal Scrum boots during this weekend’s match.
“Being the youngest Springbok to reach 50 caps speaks volumes of the hard work that Eben puts in both on and off the field. Achievements such as these don’t come from simply wanting them. Eben has shown in his desire and hunger to achieve and perform that he wants it more and we expect him to reach even greater heights in the future”, says Sarah Mundy, ASICS South Africa Marketing Manager.
ASICS would like to congratulate Eben on this momentous achievement and wish him all the best in all the milestones ahead in his career! Continue reading
Springbok coach Allister Coetzee has included Francois Hougaard, Juan de Jongh and Jesse Kriel in a revamped backline for the Castle Lager Rugby Championship Test against the Wallabies at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on Saturday.
In the only change amongst the forwards, tighthead prop Lourens Adriaanse will earn his first start for the Springboks in place of Vincent Koch, while Eben Etzebeth will become the youngest player ever to reach the milestone of 50 Tests for South Africa this weekend.
Coetzee made four changes in total to the back division which featured in the loss to Argentina in Salta two week ago. One of them is because of injury while another is a positional switch.
Hougaard comes into the side as replacement for Ruan Combrinck, who suffered a fractured leg against the Pumas, and he will play on the left wing, meaning the experienced Bryan Habana moves over to the right. Continue reading

South Africa is a diverse nation and its character is shaped through its strong cultural identity. The strong influence from European and modern culture sweeping across South Africa has seen the formation of organisations such as Indoni striving to preserve the heritage, traditions, culture and unique identity of the country and its people through education.
“As we approach heritage day this September, it is also important to reflect on how we preserve this heritage and pass it onto the next generation undiluted. Through stimulating the African legacy, Indoni aims to rekindle individualistic sense of belonging and identity,” says CEO of Indoni, Dr Nomcebo Mthembu.
From the manner we communicate through language, music, clothes, religion, architecture etc., to the method we handle ourselves, western culture has proved to have imposed great influence in every sphere of human life. Western culture, particularly European culture continues with its overwhelming influence to recolonise Africa, with excessive acceptance and adoption in South Africa and the African Continent at large.
