The other day I chatted to a sports agent about how players and the game of rugby have changed over the past half-century. Take the legendary flank Frik du Preez, who played for the Bokke between 1961 and 1971, as an example. At 1.89m and 106kg Oom Frik was an excellent all-rounder who later even played lock. Compare this with our 2.02m Springbok lock Bakkies Botha, who weighs a scale-crunching 125kg. Even our backline players Jean de Villiers (1.90m and 103kg) and Francois Steyn (1.91m and 110kg) are about as big as Oom Frik used to be.

If you’d rather slash your Amex Black than be just another C-Class sedan driver, then Mercedes-Benz has the answer: a special, higly versatile low-volume C-Class. It’s the C-Class Estate and will be delivered to early adopters from October this year. What this new model has in common with its successful sedan sibling is a clear yet emotional and sporty design along with innovative engineering. Technical features include the sedan range’s efficient engines and high-quality, refined interiors giving a tangible feeling of modern luxury.
