Cyrus Smith Reviews From Locker Room to Boardroom by Ross van Reenen

From Locker Room to Boardroom: Converting Rugby Talent Into Business SuccessVerdict: carrot

This is a book for every lover of rugby and especially of those great Springboks who, after retiring from rugby, made it to the top in the business world. There you find fascinating insights to 30 of these greats, including Danie Craven, Louis Luyt, Jan Bull Pickard, Francois Pienaar, Kobus Wiese and Pretoria’s hero, Naas Botha.

In the foreword, Morné du Plessis writes that for the professional sports person there is an additional certainty of life, to add to the cliché of there being death and taxes: the day they will stop participating at the highest level of their sport.
