Proteas on top down under

What an amazing game of test cricket Perth delivered! It once again proved why test cricket is the pinnacle! Turning points were Dale Steyn leaving the field injured, 100’s by Elgar and Duminy and Bavuma’s run-out, fifty and awesome runout! Next up is Hobart – this will prove a different test as the conditions will […]

Where to now, Proteas?

The ticking time bomb which threatened since the departure of stalwarts like Smith, Kallis and Boucher finally exploded. Losing our number one spot in the world rankings came as no surprise. My colleague, Bobby Londt, recently shared HD Ackerman’s comment that we were only in the top spot on paper for the past year. Our […]

Rupert se Leopard Creek SMS aan Kallis

Altus Momberg het verlede week in Media24 berig oor hoe Jacques Kallis en Mark Boucher lewenslange lidmaatskap van Leopard Creek gekry het. Tydens die spoggeleentheid in die Cape Sun-hotel, waar Kallis vereer is deur sy skool se Old Boys, Wynberg Boys’ High School, het hy die volgende vertel: Hy het dié staaltjie oor sy eerste […]

Curriebeker Finaal 2014

As mens in ag neem hoe die Lions en WP verlede week gespeel het, behoort Saterdag se eindstryd een van die aanskoulikstes in jare te wees. Die spanne was nog nie bekend ten tye van die skrywe hiervan nie, maar ek verwag nie enige verrassings nie. Baie kommentators sien die besoekers, met reg, as die […]

Clansey's Clangers & Proteas win!

Clancey Clangers not the only reason – Paul Kruger  If the Springboks had the benefit of appealing against the result of Saturday’s match against Australia, their chances of success would be excellent if it was purely based on the poor decisions by the officials. Unfortunately, Heyneke’s game plan also failed the test, and this is […]

Mooi Rugby is ook Wenrugby

Dit is baie bemoedigend om na vier weke van die kompetisie te sien dat die spanne wat bereid is om hardlooprugby te speel, bo-aan die punteleer is. Die Pumas se oorwinning oor die Sharks was dalk vir party mense die verrassing van die naweek, maar moenie verbaas wees as hulle nog meer opskuddings gaan veroorsaak […]

Proteas Bloom

The single biggest reason why I enjoy a South African victory over an Australian side, more than one over the English, is that the Aussies are usually much more competitive. I was fortunate in that flu kept me in bed yesterday, which allowed me to follow most of the match live. Graeme Smith earned his […]

The End of an Era

Bobby Londt To describe King Kallis’s career in a blog would not be possible, nor would it do justice to a career that ranks up there with the best. For this reason, this writing only serves as a reminder of the greatest cricketer South Africa has ever produced. If one takes into account the names […]

One suspects that the ultimate list of 30 players will be a mixed grill of experience and promising youngsters, like the team who played against Scotland a few weeks ago. While a key player like […]
