As the country continues to celebrate the victory by the Springboks in the Rugby world cup, what lessons can the country learn from the team?
Clinical psychologist with a Ph.D. in sports, Pierre Nel says having a good reputation goes a long way in building the nations.
Nel say the Springboks coach Rassie Erasmus had a very clear vision and that is how the team managed to succeed in the tournament.

Nel says the nation needs people with credibility.
