‘A Few People Were Shocked By Me Coming Here,’ Brockie On His SA Experience So Far! The New Zealander has been living in South Africa with his young family since the beginning of 2015 and judging by his social media, he loves it.
In a recent interview, the Sundowns player opened up about his move to South Africa, exploring SA and his experience living in the country so far.
“I love it out here. South Africa is similar to New Zealand in many ways, so it feels like a second home to me,” Brockie said. “The wildlife … and, of course, another thing we share is our passion for sport in general. It was a good choice to come to the PSL,” Brockie said.
Brockie says he didn’t know much about Mzansi but did his research and made his own conclusion despite having a few people who were shocked he was moving to South Africa.
Whilst he’s ben here for a few years, Brockie is quite the tourist.
“As a family we have been to the Pilanesberg National Park at Sun City a number of times and to the uShaka Marine World (Durban). We have been to the beaches in Cape Town, Durban and the winelands in Constantia . South Africa is really a beautiful country.”
The only time you won’t hear him gushing over SA is Rugby time. “That is the biggest rivalry in rugby. There’s a lot of history,” he concluded.
