Jake White Joins the Blogosphere

In Black and WhiteJake White and (Big) Fan Following the tremendous performance of Jake White’s autobiography, In Black and White, after his Springboks won the Rugby World Cup last year, the coach has ventured into the world of “Web 2.0″, and launched both a blog and a YouTube channel.

“I would like to welcome all rugby fans and other visitors to the Jake White Blog,” says the South African hero on Jake White’s World, hosted by Blogspot. “The blog has now been officially launched and links to Jake White YouTube which is the site where I will be speaking directly to the public, conducting interviews or discussing some or other aspect of the sport.”

To judge by the early reaction from visitors, In Black and White remains as popular as ever. Here’s Morne Coetzee, for instance:

“What a book!!!!!!!!!!! Brilliant. Jake coached me at provincial High School Level when it was still Transvaal Rugby. He was an awesome man and coach, and STILL is!!!”

And here’s gazaxxxxxx:

“Just finished “In Black and White”. Phenomenal read… couldn’t put it down.”

To launch the YouTube channel, White sat down with Google SA CEO, Stafford Maisie:
