Chasing the Sun is a five-part documentary series that will premier on SuperSport on 4 October and charts the Springboks’ road to 2019 World Cup glory.
As the promotional material states: “From a sport defined by its past, and a country defined by its differences, a team choose to believe in something more.”
Chasing the Sun tells the story of the Springbok rugby team and their journey from dejection and under-performance to the pinnacle of international rugby, the Rugby World Cup.
“It is a story about changing fortunes and changing mindsets, about pressure and hope, about recognising the power of inspiration, and learning what representation truly means,” says the promotional material. “With unprecedented behind-the-scenes access and exclusive contributions from coaching staff, players and commentators, Chasing the Sun is the story of how a team, a nation, and the world came to discover that we are all indeed, stronger together.”
