Behind the great men who pull on a Springbok jersey, there is one even greater woman – public relations and administration manager Annelee Murray.

Murray’s job takes her all around the world. She has worked with seven Springbok captains – André Vos, Bob Skinstad, Corné Krige, John Smit, Victor Matfield, Johann Muller, Jean de Villiers and Siya Kolisi– and has been with the Boks for over 200 Tests. Murray’s biggest advantage is her caring and almost motherly approach to looking after the players and she always puts their wellbeing first. From dealing with a player who once invited two girlfriends into the box by accident to dealing with Jean de Villiers’s jokes, Murray has seen it all.

Having made her debut in 2000 when South Africa played Argentina, Murray still gets goose bumps when singing the national anthem. She is somebody anyone who works in rugby knows and has become a real role model to other women aspiring to take up similar roles. She has proven that with passion, hard work and dedication, it is possible for women to make a real difference in sport.


A bit of adventure is something we all want in our lives and Jamie Marais is making a career of it.

Not only are world record attempts and extreme endurance challenges just part of his day’s work, he’s also an actor, guitarist, songwriter and that’s not even the half of it.

Jamie cycled a vertical ascent of 9,000 metres in just 36 hours on 29 and 30 August 2020 within Kariega Game Reserve. This is the equivalent of riding more than the height of Everest and 337 km in one go.
