|Martin Ryman, who runs an PlayLotteryUK.com, allowing people abroad to play the UK lottery, is asking South African rugby fans to ante up $1million (R7.35million) to end the Springboks' run of poor performances, and plans to do this by hiring US guru Tony Robbins to fire up the team. Robbins claims to have advised Andre Agassi, the LA Kings, and the President of the United States, among others.|
'My idea was to start a fund, which I'll be more than happy to put the first R20,000 into, to bring this Tony Robbins over and turn our boys, who are world class athletes but unfortunately second rate motivated athletes, into people who actually believe they can win the World Cup,' Ryman said. And the response to his masterstroke?
'I've not received anything whatsoever. Nothing,' he said.
