Wolseley is a small town about 130km outside Cape Town where a firm handshake is still regarded as proper etiquette.The Breede Valley town is renowned for its icy winters and the one-and-only butchery which sells the most amazing steaks. But it's now also known for producing new Springbok tighthead Wilco Louw, whose handshake is almost as potent as his ability to scrum opponents into the dirt. "Wilco has got an unbelievable handshake. Actually, it's frightening.
Ten years ago today the Springboks won their second Rugby World Cup by beating England 15-6 in the final. KweséESPN takes a look at the starting team's contribution in that final and checks out what they are up to now.Fullback: Percy MontgomeryThe former fullback, who scored 12 points in the final with his accurate left boot, is still hitting the gym hard and recently won the LifeSaving South Africa Celebrity Challenge in Camps Bay.
For years, the inside-centre role in South Africa was mainly about bashing the ball up.They were the sacrificial lambs on attack, the guys who were supposed to provide the momentum so that other runners could also have a crack from front-foot ball to try to suck in defenders.But it's no coincidence that when the Springboks had a 'second flyhalf' in that position they ended up winning the Rugby World Cup in 1995 and in 2007.Hennie le Roux, also a superb flyhalf, was the Boks' inside centre en...
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
