Half-time Chat with Siv Ngesi & Ryan Kankowski

Ryan Kankowski knows all about transition: from Super Rugby with the Sharks, donning 20 Springbok caps and winning the 2009 Tri-Nations and British-Irish series, to playing with the Blitzbokke at the Commonwealth Games and also doing a stint with the Japanese Toyota rugby team in 2012.

He talks to Siv Ngesi about lessons learnt from Japanese culture, how to manage money as a sportsperson, and his latest transition – into the world of online gaming. Here are some quotes by this Dota 2 gamer.

Quotable quotes from Ryan Kankowski interview with Siv Ngesi:
• In Japan, they have respect for everyone whether you’re the street sweeper or the owner of a club.
• They monitor all the small rules... if you let the little basics go, then the big things go
• All that matters is that you gave it your best on the field
• I never knew that rugby was gonna be my career.
• It made me sit back and think differently about money.
• You think you’re everything and one injury can change it all.
• Not only nerds play games! Gaming isn’t some guy playing in a dark hole.
• Whether I’m playing fuzeball with my wife, I can’t handle playing something and not being the best.

Half-time Chat with Siv Ngesi & Francois van Coke

“It doesn't happen overnight”

Francois van Coke goes by many descriptors. Front man of rock band Fokofpolisiekar. Coach on The Voice SA. Son of a preacher. An anarchist that lives in the suburbs (a translated verse from his latest track, Daarsy Boys).

But once upon a time he was just a young boy from a suburb called Bellville who dreamed of becoming a rugby player. As much as his rugby dream may not have materialised, he’s realised a lot of other unexpected dreams along the way.

He chats to Siv Ngesi about how fatherhood has made him less selfish, what change means to him -and to Afrikaans culture, and what made his mom finally accept his music after over a decade.

Quotes from Francois van Coke interview with Siv Ngesi:
• Playing in a band was not my parent’s ideal for me
• We wanted to free ourselves of everything of our past
• I’m definitely a better dad off the sauce than on the sauce
• It took 13 years for my mom to get into my music
• Being in a band is like being in a rugby team
• The only thing I wanted to do was be a rugby player
• The biggest thing I’ve learnt about change is that it’s possible
• I want to be a good dad, be a good husband and make good music until I die
• As long as Afrikaans is looking towards the future, things can change for the better
• I want my daughter to see that I made people think.

Half-time Chat with Siv Ngesi & Paul Treu

“My life has been a rollercoaster of change”

Paul Treu is the name synonymous with the ascent of Sevens rugby in South Africa. After playing for the SA Sevens team from 1999-2003, he became head coach and then went on to become the first African coach to lead the team to victory at a World Sevens series. This former teacher has lived his life from one transition to the next – and he’s not ready to disrupt that narrative.

In episode 9 of Half Time Chat with Siv Ngesi, Paul shares what helps him adjust from one role to the next, and how his principles – and the late Chester Williams – helped shape his rugby success.

Quotes from Paul Treu interview with Siv Ngesi:
• I was born into a rugby family … in those days of playing rugby in the streets with a plastic bottle
• If you don’t have very grounded philosophy of who you are and what you stand for, it’s going to be hard for you to coach
• We wanted to become the first team in the world to win a professional 7s series
• The hardest thing was leaving my family behind
• I’ve always been a person that believes in principle of fairness and equality
• Black coaches are not asking for a free ride, they are asking for opportunity to prove themselves, for a seat at the table.

Half-time Chat with Siv Ngesi & Dalin Oliver

"You dala what you must"

Dalin Oliver is one of the funniest South Africans on the mic and with good reason. He's always been a performer, which explains why this former teacher believes educators are the best storytellers.

Radio DJ by day and comedian by night, Dalin shares about converting his art into business and when opportunity presents itself how to "dala what you must"!

A talented junior athlete in his day, his love for sport goes beyond just talking about it on radio. In this hilarious sit-down with Siv, Dalin reflects about how sport gave him significant opportunities, being comfortable with who you are and why he lives vicariously through rugby.

Quotes from Dalin Oliver interview with Siv Ngesi:
• Those change moments come immediately because you realise it's your passion
• Change must be scary.
• You dala what you must.
• Where there is sincerity people are in your corner
• It's the "change moment". You want something. You must go fetch it
• Home is a safe place but it also teachers you the realities of the world.
• Fame is a concept... don’t get caught up in the hype.
• I love Rugby. Its everything.
• If you are not willing to change and adapt, you are going to get left behind.

Half-time Chat with Siv Ngesi & Kyle Brown

“You are not rugby, rugby is not you, rugby is a part of you”

Holding accolades such as being the winner of 3x World Rugby Sevens Series titles, a gold medal from the 2014 Commonwealth Games and Bronze at 2016 Rio Olympics, sounds like a setup for life. But former Blitzboks captain, Kyle Brown, is candid about why most athletes struggle with life after rugby or professional sport.

In episode 7 of Half-Time Chat, Siv Ngesi gets insights on what helped Kyle persevere through injury and rehab, and how he’s navigating “the greatest season of change in his life”.

Also listen out for the secret reason Kyle walks around with spectacles on.

Quotes from Kyle Brown interview with Siv Ngesi:
• One of the best decisions of my life was to stay at Sevens
• Athletes are fundamentally unemployable
• A very small percentage of athletes earn a liveable salary
• Injuries are part of the game and you must accept it
