Dawn Dunn wears many caps but the one she is most well-known for is ‘Rugby nut’. Her story is an incredible one. A previously disadvantaged black female who grew up during apartheid in a township, would not be your idea of the traditional rugby expert. Her technical knowledge together with her eclectic, vivacious nature bring a fresh take on the Rugby commentator.
She is well known, loved Rugby personality who has interacted with many of the rugby fraternity and has an uncanny knack for seeing patterns that even seasoned journalists don’t pick up. Her ongoing podcast with co-host Lauren Terras focusing on the achievements of women in sports are inspirational.
Dawn is a powerhouse of a business woman. She has successfully run an events, marketing and PR business since 2003 and is responsible for innovative events around South Africa. With the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic, she has diversified into the online space proving that there are always opportunities in any situation.
