Getroud Met Rugby S4
Can’t get home in time for your favourite sport soapie Getroud Met Rugby? Have no fear – Showmax is awarding extra time for fans who’re stuck in traffic, still at the office, not near a telly… Getroud is now streaming here at the same time as it airs on DStv, starting from 5 August.
Not sure what you’re missing? Season 4 has just kicked off with the central Bekker family moving out of the series and newcomers and existing storylines taking a more prominent role as the Stryders rugby players get to grips with their lives on the field.
For starters, there’s that long-time-considered-taboo locker room hook-up between two players. Thought you had to be a butch, overly macho heterosexual to play rugger? Think again! And where there’s smoke and flames, the catty pom-pom cheerleaders are sure to follow.
If you’re a fan of rugby, you’ll love the ins and outs that fans normally don’t get to see. Yes, there’s a little on-field action, but the soapie’s main theme is what goes on behind the scenes at a rugby club, from player contracts and adding to the squad, through to changing coaches, trying new tactics, those high-pressure tournaments and everything in-between.
But it’s not all rugby, all the time. Personal lives also come into play, like with single-to-mingle coach Schalk’s Coach Wants A Wife “reality” contest where he’s getting a helping hand finding a wife. There’s also the hangers-on, like loveable couple Fafa and Maryke, as well as villainess Kristien, who’re bringing those comedic and much-needed evil angles to storylines
Did you know that they have actual ex-pro players advising on storylines as well as those all-important on-field scenes? The actors are pretty convincing – you’d swear they were real rugby players.
If drama’s your name, Getroud Met Rugby is your game!
