I just want to point out a few other things I have heard via the grapevine:
Taute is seen as the first choice 15, with Kolbe being touted as the next guy in long term. The reason for this is that Gio is getting […]
Regarding kicking when you are going forward, just like any business teams have standard protocol.
They will have a green zone where they will go flatout for the try. Side to Side stuff (or whatever their […]
The scrum is normally semi-stable. And then what you will see is the 9 picking it up and taking steps/running to the right. This allows the chasing line the time they need to get closer to the offside line from […]
I’m not picking favourites, I’m just telling you what I I’ve been told by people in the know. That is why Schreuder is constantly in the Bok squad.
The lefty kicking disability has actually nothing to do with […]
Groome is no better than Schreuder and he’s a lefty. THey are a liability from a kicking point of view. I also had a chat with someone in the know at the Boks, and he told me that FdP told Heynecke that Schreuder […]
If they suffer another blow at the back they might well be smart to look at young fullback from the Kings. Also George Whitehead could offer useful utility value.
Its good to see the D hold, but I think they […]
In the after special they did an interview on the bus after they had a few beers… and he said that he backed his step because that what he always does.
I firmly believe that is why he en JdJ were so good […]
Interesting factoid. Jacque Fourie ALWAYS carries and steps off his right when the ball goes right. I cannot recall a single time I have seen him pass it to the right. The irony is that is exactly what Juan de […]
It’s a nice clean design. Hopefully when you guys get a main sponsor the colours do not clash.
I’m just repeating what was repeated to me. The people from Paarl/Wellington (hometown) also have a hard time buying that story. But, if you read HM’s comments when he picked him for EOYT he said that they were […]
Oh by the way, I had some interesting chats with my SARU placed friends.
They are a bit apprehensive about Matfield’s return. They say that stats show the game has gotten more physical in the 2 years he has […]
Actually, they ended up playing most of the CC with Boom, Lappies and someone new each week until vd Walt could return from injury.
With vd Walt grafting, Lappies can run in the outside channels which is where […]
They’ve had some growing pains. They have slipped it into blogs.sportchat.co.za now. As with everything on the net the content will be driven by ease of use, and with the niggles they’ve had it will be interesting […]
Maybe I respond too much
I keep going to spam
They are a bit thin in the lock department… and if their loosies struggle like in the CC its going to be a long season. The lack of a kicking 9 will just put more pressure on Goosen. It will be interesting to […]
Will be interesting to see if Cheetah loosies can gel with Heinz out for a few weeks. They struggled to find balance in the CC. Frans Viljoen was very good the first part of last year.
Didn’t you have the Stormers at 6 yesterday?
They are also missing both Potgieters, Jano (who was in the form of his life). They are also much thinner on leadership in the pack if they suffer injuries.
Its not Powa, but that is easily forgiven
To be honest I expect Kirsten to start with either Greyling or Mellet on the LH. I don’t rate Steggies, but I do know van Graan rates him over Brussouw, and that […]
