The South African National Rugby team may have been away from home, but that didn’t stop the squad from pulling over from their team bus to help some bystanders who were having car trouble. The team was in Canada to face the Vancouver team when they spotted a woman and her car pulled over at the side of the road.
It might have been a shock to see a bus full of rugby players file out and take turns in helping change a tire, but it was even stranger for the Vancouver local, who had no idea who they were. She was just surprised and very appreciative of the help she received. In a series of videos uploading on social media, you can see the appreciative motorist as these giant with kind hearts take turns in changing her flat tire.
“We always want to do things on the field right, but it also starts off the field,” said Philip Snyman, captain of the Blitzboks. “That’s exactly what our team stands for. Our culture means touching people’s lives.” That certainly was the case here as they were able to help out a local in a dire situation.
The South African Blitzboks were on their way to the NC Palace Stadium to play the Canada Sevens. Although they won the match against Canada, they fell to the English team. The team is currently on a very busy schedule as they competed in the 2017 Canadian Sevens, but that didn’t stop them from taking time to help out a stranger in need.
