Shades of 1995

South Africa’s victory in the Rugby World Cup final in 1995 is arguably the finest moment in our rugby history. I still believe the opening game at Newlands laid the platform for what was to come. The victory did wonders for Springbok confidence, which carried through when they triumphed against 14 All Blacks and a […]

Worrying times

A much improved bowling and fielding performance by the Proteas in the 2nd one day international was not enough to secure victory.

Satisfying indeed…

Proteas The last time the Proteas came back from the land of the long white cloud in 2003 /2004 it was with a taste of bitterness and humiliation as they drew the test series one all and lost the ODI’s 5 -1. The touring group felt the need to rectify this from a South African […]
