AUDIO: 'Bittersweet' moment with Springboks

Listen as Aled Walters chats about his journey as the Springboks Head of Athletic Performance.

Walters recently accepted an offer to join Leicester in England after two years with the Springboks.

“It’s obviously very sad to be leaving,” Walters told the latest episode of the SA Rugby podcast.

“But with the current climate, it’s also exciting to get back home. My wife’s family is in Ireland, mine’s in Wales. It’s going to be nice to be closer to them. Of course, there’s also the challenge of working with one of the biggest clubs in Europe. It’s something very hard to turn down and I have massive respect for the Tigers having faced them in the past with Munster.

“So, yeah, it’s a bittersweet moment. But it’s rugby. It’s life. I’ll forever be grateful for the opportunity to work with the Springboks.”

Meanwhile, new Springboks coach Jacques Nienaber talks about on the role Walters played in the Boks’ recent success.
