New Zealand born Mamelodi Sundowns striker Jeremy Brockie might be on the verge of qualifying to become a South African citizen, but he is still a proud and loud supporter of New Zealand’s national rugby team the All Blacks.
Brockie was invited to his children’s school last week as part of the school’s heritage month celebration. The striker took the opportunity to teach the Haka (or at least one of the versions of the Haka) to the excited youngsters.
The little ones are obviously enamoured by learning the traditional Mauri war dance, with joy in their faces and laughter all around it’s clear that these kids are having a great time learning about the culture of another country.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Brockie said he was looking forward to seeing how the All Blacks would bounce back against the Springboks when they meet for the final match of the 2018 Rugby Championship in Pretoria.
Citizen.co.za reported that Brockie posted the video of his adventures as a teacher on his Twitter feed and explains he was invited by the school to teach the children about the culture of his native New Zealand.
Brockie has struggled for form since joining Mamelodi Sundowns from SuperSport United in what was expected to be a fruitful new chapter in his career.
Unfortunately, the striker has suffered one of the biggest losses of form in professional sport which has seen him more than a year without finding the back of the net.
Despite this, Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane remains supportive of Brockie. Mosimane said he would not place any pressure on Brockie because he understood how sports worked.
Mosimane pointed out that added pressure could have a negative effect on some players such as Orlando Pirates striker Thamsanqa Gabuza spectacular meltdown against Black Leopards.
Mosimane said he remained convinced Brockie would find his former form at some point. Mosimane hailed Brockie for not giving up during this tough period and continuing to work hard during practices sessions.
