‘You expect more from a national hero’

2013-11-27 17:45

Twitter users have voiced their anger over a not-so-new hunting picture of former rugby player Victor Matfield and current Springbok player Fourie du Preez posing with a dead zebra. The picture, tweeted by Matfield in 2011 and removed after getting negative comments, has resurfaced – in the wake of the Melissa Bachman debacle – and sparked less than favourable comments yet again.


Since the picture was published petitions have surfaced, calling for a ban on Bachman visiting South Africa and the cancellation of her show, Winchester Deadly Passion.
