Delron Buckley Dancing with the Stars SA

Soccer star Delron Buckley and rugby legend Thando Manana take to the stage on Dancing with the Stars SA.

The two will be joining Thembisa Mdoda, Frank Opperman, Juanita De Villiers, Liesl Laurie, Odessa Swarts and Zola Nombona as they hit the dancefloor on the series.

Delron Buckley is currently retired from playing. He is an assistant coach at Amazulu, and runs his own soccer school. Talking about his ambition in the series, he said: “I am competitive like most pro-sports people are – so make no mistake that I am going to give my best and I will be looking to win this dance off!”

Thando Manana is a rugby commentator, pundit and member of the infamous Room Dividers team on Metro FM. He is determined to win. “I love dominating anything I put my mind to, so my next challenge will be to dominate the dance floor.”

Both Delron and Thando have successfully released autobiographical books about their lives and sporting journeys.
