Trevor Nyakane recently took to his Twitter account to share his excitement at his new surroundings, adding that he and the family already love it there.

Speaking of his moving to France, Nyakane described it as 'the challenge he needed,' Tech Gaming Report confirmed.

“With the Springboks, we came to see Racing play and I said to Bongi Mbonambi: 'If I have to leave South Africa, it is for a club like that, with a stadium like this, an atmosphere like this … .' weeks later, I got a phone call!
"I spent seven years with the Bulls, I think we achieved our goals. We won Super Rugby, two Currie Cups in a row … I needed a new challenge, I felt like my time in South Africa was coming to an end. Growing as a person and as a player, giving my family opportunities, discovering new things, that was the challenge I needed. I wanted to be challenged, physically and mentally, Nyakane said.”

After sharing the snaps, fans can't get enough of Trevor's new life and congratulated the prop on his new journey.


"Well done, try speak the language they'll appreciate you for giving it a go.... Show them your talents"


"We will miss you Trevor, however wishing you and the family the most awesome experience, and lots of happiness."

Jake White proposes an end to overseas Boks in national team, social media critical of the decision

In other rugby news, former Springboks coach Jake White has caused quite a social media stir after comments he made about the overseas-based players in the Springbok squad, Sports Brief recently reported.

The current Blue Bulls Director of Rugby believes that South African Rugby should no longer select Springboks who are signed by overseas clubs and instead focus on players plying their trade locally.

The South African recently reported that it was pointless playing for local South African franchises when you could play abroad and earn in dollars or euros and still be able to represent the country.
