Springbok Rugby Indaba

All eyes and ears of rugby lovers were focused on Newlands this week as the cream of South African rugby converged to plot and plan the resurrection of the ailing patient. Perhaps I should rephrase that and rather call it the milk of SA rugby. The cream would have included the likes of Nick Mallett, […]

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 […]

A Scintillating Weekend Awaits

The T20 Semi-final – Proteas vs India It’s a difficult one to call, and as objective as I would like to be, I must admit I wouldn’t bet any money on SA. Not because I think we can’t win it – more out of “we’ve been here before” and “I’ll believe it when I see […]

Batting him at number three, as many pundits suggested before the match against England on Saturday, proved to be the right decision. A highlight of the match for […]

Drie uit Drie?

Round 7 sees the Lions and Cheetahs taking a well-earned break to try and get their injured players back in shape. In the case of the Free Staters, they will also be tending to their badly bruised confidence. Reader Comment In response to Monday’s article, Wayne Fouche commented: Personally I fear for the sustainability of […]
