To all of Mzansi’s rugby fans, here’s a chance to support the game by taking part in the Care 4 Kings’ fundraising initiative.

A live online auction featuring rugby memorabilia, the event will take place from 16 – 17 October, and will be hosted by former Springbok rugby player, Braam van Straaten at www.care4kings.co.za.

All the earnings will go towards financially aiding the Southern Kings players and staff, after the club announced insolvency on the 19 September 2020. 

A great number of players have come forward in support of the initiative, and have donated several rugby memorabilia for the auction, which include:

  • Braam Van Straaten’s prized Springbok Blazer;
  • Mzwandile Stick, a born-and-bred Eastern Cape player, donated a White Signed World Cup Jersey (Whole Squad) from last year’s 2019 World Cup Winning Team;
  • A signed André Venter White Springbok Jersey
  • The WP Currie Cup Final jersey 2000 and a framed Barbarian jersey;
  • A signed ball by all the BaaBaas player and the glass medal that goes with it;
  • A signed Sharks jersey, donated by AJ Venter, from the 2007 Sharks side that played against the Bulls in the Super Rugby Final at the Kings Park stadium;
  • Tiaan Liebenberg’s 2012 Man of the Match Stormers jersey against the Highlanders at Newlands;
  • A one-of-a kind testimonial jersey signed by Martin Johnson, who played against All Blacks legend Jonah Lomu XV on 4 June 2005 at Twickenham – donated by Danie Coetzee;
  • A framed cartoon artwork of all the players who were part of the 1998 Tri Nations Champions, with their signatures;
  • And lastly, donated by Dick Muir, a signed 2011 World Cup Springbok Jersey (Whole Squad), of the opening game against Wales – which the Boks won 17/16 with some controversies – will also be up for grabs!

To be part of the live auction, all fans must log onto to www.care4kings.co.za and register prior to the event.

Care 4 Kings is overwhelmed by the local and international support from the rugby fraternity who took time out to create support videos such as Eben Etzebeth, Frans Malherba, Lindsay Weyers, Mzwandile Stick, Chris Dry, AJ Venter and Rob Louw.
