Ashwin returns as TV pundit

Former Springbok and ex-Supersport Rugby analyst Ashwin Willemse will return to South African screens as a sports show host.

Willemse, who played 19 Tests between 2003 and 2007, will bring his experience and passion for the game to the new eExtra programme. BÔll & Ôll. The show will air on Sundays at 6.30pm on Openview eExtra, with a rebroadcast on Saturdays on e.tv.

Willemse, along with presenter JP Keyter, will host the weekly talk show focusing on local rugby.

The eExtra announcement comes six years after Willemse’s dramatic departure from a Supersport broadcast, where he accused fellow analysts Nick Mallett and Naas Botha of racism.

An independent investigation found no evidence of racism, leading Willemse and SuperSport to part ways.
