Proud mom! Springbok Sacha spends time with biggest fan

Sacha Feinberg-Mngomezulu has taken time out of his busy Springbok training schedule to spend time with one of his biggest fans, his mother.

The new recruit will make his second test match appearance in the team’s clash against Ireland at Loftus on Saturday, 6 July.

Sacha was born to a white British father and a Zulu mother.


In a sweet Instagram Story this week, Sacha Feinberg-Mngomezulu shared that he was spending quality time with his mother, Makhosazana, whose surname he proudly carries.

“Day off,” he captioned the heartwarming snap.

Sacha also posted pics of his time with his maternal side of the family, including his grandfather, whom he gifted a Springbok jersey to.

Under his Instagram posts, various members of his family have praised Sacha for his amazing achievements.

One proudly posted the Mngomezulu clan names. “Mngomezulu, Dlakadla, Lubelo, Mbikiza, Muthu, Nkabanhle. Those are the praises”.

Another added: “Hearing our Surname the whole time in that green jersey was an unmatched feeling.”


Sacha’s dad, Nick Feinberg – a British-born Heart FM radio presenter – who returned to South Africa in the 90s.

During this period, he met Makhosazana Mngomezulu, an advocate with whom he had sons Nathan and Sacha.

The Bok is the younger brother of Netflix reality TV star Nathan Mngomezulu.  Sacha is also the grandson of anti-Aparthied hero Barry Feinberg, who died last year.

Meanwhile, Sacha Feinberg-Mngomezulu will play alongside famous flyhalf Handre Pollard in the Springboks clash against Ireland this weekend.

And Bok fans are in their element at the sheer display of talent in the squad.

“Pollard is the present, Sacha is the future,” commented one Springbok supporter on social media.

According to Planet Rugby, Handre Pollard is also a fan of the young prodigy.

He said of the 22-year-old: “I’ve been very, very impressed. I’ve watched him for a couple of years now playing for the Stormers, but his understanding of the game, work ethic, and he’s an unbelievably skilled player.

“I’m really excited to see how he goes with the longer he stays in the system, the more he plays, and the more time he gets in the group.
