Rugby players ooze machismo. Dik legs. Ripped torsos. Big guns. Hands that can crush a beer keg with one quick clench of the fist. They are the Alpha Males of the sporting world. Which is why they don’t drive dainty cars like the Mazda MX-5. Nooit bru. They command cars with attitude. Golden Lions winger, Courtnall Skosan, for example, has just been given the keys to a brand new 197kW Subaru WRX. Recognising his on-field speed and agility, not to mention aggression, Subaru Johannesburg has just made the 25-year-old rugby star their official brand ambassador – a position that Skosan is most pleased about. “I remember as a little boy making the sound of the Subaru WRX when watching movies,” he said upon taking delivery of his new Pearl White wheels. “I probably watched Born 2 Race 100 times and still don’t get sick of it. It is a real honour and privilege for me to be a part of the Subaru Johannesburg family. These cars are fantastic and the perfect fit for who I am and what I do. They represent real Power with Control.” Hopefully his contract pays him enough to keep the tank filled as lord knows these things can get thirsty when they get driven like they should.
