A Lone Shark

The title of an article on Supersport reads: “Looks like Sharks will stand alone”, and possibly reflects the views of most South African fans at this stage of the Super 15 Competition. The Bulls have taken massive strides in regaining their mojo by selecting Jaques-Louis Potgieter, who was able to take command in the way […]

The Die is cast…

Cream will rise to the top, and the final standings in the Currie Cup log is possibly a fair reflection of the fortunes of the teams who battled for a place in the play-offs. Western Province followed the same approach as they did in the Super Series by striving to win, rather than win handsomely. […]

Jy moet konsentreer my Kind!

Die groot verskil tussen die Bulle en die ander SA spanne die naweek was hul vermoë om vir 80 minute te konsentreer. Dalk kan mens ook die Lions hiervoor krediet gee. Hulle het so byna die WP se tjank afgetrap in ’n wedstryd wat die verloorders baie langer sal onthou as die wenners. Die Reds […]

It’s all to play for!
