Bok Rugby Beter

Die meeste van ons sukkel nog om die impak van Saterdag se oorwinning oor die All Blacks reg te verwerk. Van die meer sober gedagtes wat sedertdien aan die lig gekom het, is dat ons weer nie in die tweede helfte kon voortbou op ‘n stewige fondament nie. Die All Blacks het 12 punte aangeteken, […]

Fouries are jolly good fellows

The condition of the pitch is important in cricket, but it should not affect the quality of a rugby match. Sadly, Wales lost here, too. I felt particularly sorry for Frans Malherbe, and also Coenie Oosthuizen, who must have come close to setting a new record for receiving a yellow card in the least amount […]

Potty mouth Kiwi’s 1 – Proteas 1 & Super Rugby is back!

It was an obvious tactic by the Black Caps to verbally pressure the young Proteas side into submission, especially with the experienced campaigners like Kallis and Smith not playing. One wondered if they would be able to withstand the verbal onslaught of which the Kiwi’s are masters – yes, they are even better sledgers than […]

deur Paul. Daar sal nie te veel mense wees wat trane stort oor die feit dat die aankondiging van die nuwe Springbok-afrigter saamgeval het met die skop onder die jis vir iemand wat duidelik nie How to win friends and influence people geskryf of gelees het nie. Julius het waarskynlik eerder Mein Kampf tydens houtwerk klasse […]

A “good loser” is a habitual loser…

Pitched online – by Bobby Reading the comments on various websites this morning I realised once again that Protea fans are really bad losers, which, to be honest, doesn’t really bother me that much as I have always believed a “good loser” is a habitual loser. Despite criticism after the last two games, I believe […]

Proteas firmly in control and Indians disappoint!

Pitched online by Bobby East London proved a much sterner test for AB de Villiers and his men as they won the second ODI against Sri Lanka. On a slow wicket which required a lot of patience, the Sri Lankans gave a much better account of themselves but they will still be seriously concerned as […]

Quo Vadis SA Rugby

Paul se perspektief Dan Retief concluded his blog overview of the previous rugby season with the following comment: What an indictment John Mitchell’s resurrection of the Lions is of his immediate predecessor at Coca-Cola Park and of other local coaches. To take the Lions from where they were, with an outfit of patched-up veterans, outcasts […]

SA versus Sri Lanka: A series of value

Bobby’s Bouncers Originally we thought that the series against Sri Lanka might be a bit of a doddle and we questioned the value of such a series in terms of preparation for the upcoming season. Well I think it’s fair to say the series win was achieved as we assumed it would be, but the […]

White wash for Proteas?

Pitched online – by Bobby Centurion plays host to the first of a three match test series between the Proteas and Sri Lanka tomorrow. Many predict a comfortable ride for the Proteas and to be fair I think it will be too. Without Murali and Malinga, both retired from test cricket, the Sri Lankan bowling […]
