Two new Blue Jays on the Horizon

Bulls 23 – Sharks 19 Heyneke Meyer will no doubt be very happy about a new “problem” which emerged from Saturday’s big tussle. The two Blue Jays in the Bulls side, Jacques du Plessis and Jacques-Louis Potgieter will certainly ask questions of their counterparts in the Bok side. While the established loose forwards in the […]

Cricket Gods Abandon Proteas

How dramatic was that last hour! With only four overs to go, two fatal stabs by a limping Harris delivered the coup de grãce. The Proteas, in the past, managed to survive and “hang-on” in so many tests that the cricket gods were bound to turn their backs on them at some stage. A pity […]

Provincialism was not frowned upon then – it was akin to national pride. Having your neighbour support the arch enemy was akin to treason, unlike today, […]

Halfway to Paradise

Carol King co-wrote a song with this title made famous by Billy Fury: I want to be your lover But your friend is all I’ve stayed I’m only halfway to paradise So near, yet so far away This must be what both the Cheetahs and the Bulls are singing after being “White” washed by Jake […]

They fell 17 runs short in the rain affected, Duckworth-Lewis influenced result.
