Another SA rugby problem is that it coaches do not understand that there is a difference between an outside and inside centre. Robert is a case and point. There are things that an outside centre can get away with […]
I would say that straightening the line does not mean running over the guy in front of you. It seems the step is a forgotten skill in SA rugby. Even Serfontein is turning (maybe always was) into a stampkar centre. […]
Can you blame them if the only merit they are measured on is defense? These guys are expected only to tackle and tackle and look for intercepts or chase the up-and-under, but give them the ball with lots of space […]
Ag wel, Lambie seems to be the obvious choice if he can start coming out of 2nd gear (and the pocket) some time during this year!
Goosen seems to be the anti-Wolverine at the moment and very far away from being […]
It seems to become a South African culture. Just look at the Tukkies issue as well. Teams not following the specified rules, like TUKS and Kings, should get log-points (at least) deducted, but I would love to have […]

Gert, I agree, I still remember the semifinal of the year the Bulls won their first Super title. They played the Crusaders with Richie McCaw and I think Carter played as well. The Bulls defended hard and played […]
Yip, does have that French way of rocking up or not…
Well, the Cheetahs woke up! Now the challenge is to stay awake for the rest of the S15. Man, they play beautiful rugby when they actually click on the day. Few SA teams have that ability to play with forwards and […]
What a week for brilliant Bok flanks. One from the past – RIP oom Jan Ellis. One whose prime was way too brief – Juan Smith. I will never forget that 36-0 RWC match where he was as influential as he could be!
Well, you are still here and still an asshole I see…
Following the “Field of Dreams”-strategy: If you build a lame argument, they will come?
Good luck with the bait, but with this time of the year and […]
Had to type fast, what I wanted to say:
What SARU seems to forget, and you point out, is that the people in a stadium create its atmosphere! If they cannot afford to be there, you can just as well raze the […]
What SARU seems to forget, and you point out, is that the people in a stadium create its atmosphere! If they cannot afford to be there, you can just as well raze the stadia. You could put all the razmatazz there, […]
Ag, TC, it seems that your blog has just ripped the scab off a wide open wound in the hearts of SA-AB’s. This too will pass…
As far as ticket prices go, one can see from the empty stands in S15 that tickets […]
I take it there is another poster in your Frismis stocking to go with the Etzebeth and Vicmat ones on the ceiling above your bed…
Thanks Uysh, yes PdV will be missed for the fun media conferences. Deluded as he might have sounded sometimes (quoted out of context) at least there was consistency there. HM changes his mind like a Weather vane […]
Yes Powa, fully agree. Just because this system is both blind and deaf comment-wise, we have lost some key bloggers. Couple to that the loss of anonymity and it is indeed a recipe for disaster… I am sort of […]
I cannot agree more with you on Robin Peterson! I wonder why he has never gotten a good go at it from the start. In hind sight it did him a world of good as he is a mature bowler now, that will still have a couple […]
