Springboks, Cornal Hendricks (wing) and Lionel Mapoe (centre) performed “Cooler as ekke” with Afrikaans rapper, Jack Parow, at the second annual Brightrock Choice Awards in Johannesburg last night.
There were also performances by Parow and Refentse as well as other players including Elton Jantjies, Hacjivah Dayimani and SP Marais.
Springbok hooker, Malcolm Marx, won both the prestigious Player’s Player Award (won by Bok captain, Siya Kolisi, in 2017) and the Forward of the Year Award, whilst Bok flyer, Aphiwe Dyantyi won the #LoveChange Award and the Backline Player of the Year Award. Pieter-Steph du Toit, who quite surprisingly didn’t win the Player’s Player of the Year, won the Defender of the Year award.
Hendricks, who is currently preparing with the Bulls for whom he will play in 2019, says it was a fun filled evening. “It’s been a long year for most of the players and I thought the organisers did well to involve some of the players for the entertainment. We had a lot of fun and it was a great night in general. It was fantastic to perform with Jack Parow and I thought myself and Lionel did a great job although we should probably just stick to playing rugby,” Hendricks quipped.
