IRB Sevens – England Man Shamed by Wales

November 25, 2011 in Uncategorized

I don’t know about other bloggers but I’m a massive supporter of 7’s rugby and always love watching our boys play, I don’t care what time it is i’ll watch them.

So far the top three SH teams are looking hot, (SA, AUS, NZ) this is no surprise

Other teams looking good include Wales, France and Samoa,

I don’t know whats happened to the English team but they look absolutly pathetic compared to the past. Horrible! Wales made them look like an under 14 rugby team.

I think it’s safe to say that the winner of the Aus vs SA game will be the form team of the comp, can’t wait for that game!

England you shamefull NH side! step up or step down!

Where can you get IRB 7’s live scoring

Hugo’s Drunk, here’s the sober report

November 22, 2011 in Uncategorized

Ok So Hugo is obviously Drunk, and I’ve decided too help him out a bit here

Graeme Smith

(7/10)

 

Good captaincy in regards to his field placing and utilisation of his bowlers. He played a few good nocks and is clearly regaining his best batting form. He should not be blamed for another shared series unless he is expected to control the minds of the batters.(Sheriffff) Fair mark given to Smith, he got starts in 3 of his 4 innings and top scored in the Proteas 96 all out added to that his match winning century I think 7/10 is deserved

Jacques Rudolph

(3/10)

 

He looked good opening the batting and got starts in tricky conditions. He played to many shots and it cost him his wicket on most occasions. He deserves another chance against the Sri Lankans but he will have to average 50 in that series to become a regular. (Sheriffff) Yes he does deserve another chance and he did play silly risky shots at times but I would give him a 4/10 because him and Smith attacked the bowlers from the get go

Hashim Amla

(8/10)

 

What a batter under pressure and probably the best 3 in the world. He still need to avoid risky shots early in his innings but it is hard to criticise the Rock of South Africa. He ran Ashwell Prince out at a vital stage in the Protea second innings. (Sheriffff) two centuries in two matches deserves an 8/10 so no comment there, it would have been 9/10 had he scored in the other two innings.

Jacques Kallis

(4/10).

Failed with the bat and not as effective with the ball as he can be. He still bowls at a speed of up to 140 km. Disappointing series for the best cricketer ever. (Sheriffff) Kallis is still a big asset to the Proteas and we can’t expect batsmen to score big runs every series or every match, a bit out of form but should bounce back with the bat, his fielding at slip was excellent so I’ll bump him up to 5/10

AB de Villiers

(3/10)

 

Played well at stages but couldn’t really steady the middle order. AB needs to make a mind shift about his batting and he will have to assess conditions and play accordingly. On occasions he threw his wicket away when the Proteas needed him to occupy the crease. His shot in the second innings of the second test was shocking considering the conditions. AB should also in the interest of South Africa be available to succeed Mark Boucher as wicket keeper. (Sheriffff) To many sips of whatever you are having, AB did well in the field and wasn’t terrible with the bat, he had just come back from an injury so fireworks were not expected, AB always gives 100% 5/10 from me

Ashwell Prince

(1/10)

Time to go. (Sheriffff) I would give him a 2/10 he was very quiet this series, other than that I have no comment.

Mark Boucher

(1/10)

Time to go and not performing with the bat or gloves. (Sheriffff) I would give him a 2/10 he was good with the gloves at times, I would give him one more go against Sri Lanka

Vernon Philander

(9/10)

 

A star is born. A brilliant debut: quick with swing and bounce. The pick of the bowlers and the best Protea of the series; also showed tenacity with the bat. (Sheriffff) I agree here.

Dale Steyn

(8/10)

 

Showed why he is the best bowler in the world but at times he was down on pace and swing. Steyn again illustrated his ability to bat under difficult circumstances. Not to blame for the defeat in the second test but didn’t bowl well in the Aus last innings. He cannot be expected to safe the Proteas every time. (Sheriffff) I agree here

Morne Morkel

(6/10)

Not his best series but still good. (Sheriffff) I would give him a 7/10

Imran Tahir

(5/10)

Good first series but should probably have taken more wickets in the final innings of the series. Definitely the best spinner in South Africa. He will cause havoc on a pitch that breaks up. (Sheriffff) I agree here, I would have given him a 3 or 4 had he not cleaned up the tail in Australia’s first innings of the second match

 

One week to go . . .

November 21, 2011 in Uncategorized

No this is not one of those embarrassing “England are going to win the world cup” posts Kitchener is so accustomed to posting, No One week, well to be precise 5 days is the amount of time I have left in Holland and on Saturday I will be flying to London to catch my long awaited flight back to the best Country in the World, South Africa, a few facts and lessons I’ve learnt in my three months here in Holland :

1. South Africa is home and no place compares to it

2. We have something special that I have missed terribly, the weekend braai with friends and family over a few beers watching our Springboks or Proteas take on the world or our Provincial union’s smashing each other around

3. Amsterdam is not for sissies, It’s a crazy place and a weekend in Amsterdam should only be done by the bravest of tourists, it’s no joke seriously, partying is a religion there.

4. I miss driving, never thought I would say it but the cycling gets a bit much and driving will be a new form of entertainment when I get back

5. 9 out of 10 woman here are gorgeous – fact

6. I miss the sun, seriously the temperature here does not get past 2 degrees in winter, it’s a living hell.

7. British people are not as sad, pathetic and rude as Kitchener makes them seem, they are actually nice people.

8. Soccer, soccer and more soccer that’s the only sport these people love, sorry I’ll stick top my rugby and cricket.

So advise from me? It’s a beautiful place to visit and Amsterdam is a mad city where partying for 48 hours straight is the norm, my return to SA is an exciting one, I will be starting my own business and will also be working on a sports social networking platform for all the sport freaks out there like myself, will obviously like to work with all of you to get input on the site so will keep you posted, now for cricket . . . .

Cheers

WP wat nou?

November 17, 2011 in Uncategorized

Hello,

I Must say I am extremely disappointed about the Saracens rugby match in cape town being cancelled and I’m afraid that no one else is to blame but Western Province rugby union. I’ts quite upsetting that when the Crusaders and Sharks needed a place to play due to Christchurch stadium being unavailable, London and more importantly Twickenham accepted the opportunity with open arms and accepted to accomodate the game, now when South Africa has a chance to return the favor we stuff it up.

Why? Because WP didn’t find it “logistical” to play the match at Cape Town stadium but rather wanted the financial benefits of hosting the match at Newlands, this was greedy and is embarassing, instead of us hosting one of England’s finest rugby clubs we have made them feel like a burden to WP Rugby and more importantly to South Africa.

This is a true case of planning and negotiation gone sour add to that the selfish character of it all. As South African’s it should not only be our interest but our duty to promote international interest in our Country but this is surely pushing it away. It starts with the small things people and we need to work hard on those small things.

I was not only looking forward to watching a Saracens match played in Cape Town but also looking forward to our boy Smitty pulling on the Saracens jersey and playing in South Africa.

This is disappointing and a real opportunity gone a begging, oh well maybe next time

As if Western Province don’t have enough problems as it is . . .

  

  

I know WP supporters and bloggers are going to be fuming with me but this is a dodgy move by WP you gotta say

With his overall test average now sitting at a healthy and magnifient 50.30 after his century in Cape Town and his 50 in the ODI Greame Smith certainly looks like a man back on the way to the top, add to this that he has climbed a massive 8 places in the ICC test rankings to make his way back into the top ten and is now ranked the 7th best Test batsmen on the planet and one must feel that with all this and the fact that he is begining to move his feet at the crease beautifully like the Graeme of old there is a big chance that after the Sri Lankan tour Graeme Smith could be ranked the number 1 test batsmen on the planet.

Lets not get too carried away now but it is a posibility, another Hundred and something in Joburg should move him up to 4th spot surpassing Tendulkar provided  Tendulkar is not as equally impressive against West Indies but with him going through a slump of his own the chance has never been better for Smith to grab with two hands.

Either way hate him or love him we can be proud to all our Captain one of the greatest Cricketers  the modern game has ever seen.

We won it without Kallis Or AB . . . .

November 14, 2011 in Uncategorized

Ok I’m tired of all the moaning and groaning and finger pointing we all know Kitchener is a little coward who’s a hypocrite in it’s purest form.

a few positives came out of the Newlands test last week and then of course there were a few negatives.

two of the Proteas top players Jacques Kallis and AB de Villiers played almost no role in getting the Proteas over the line, now don’t get me wrong I’m not being negative about these two players both are class acts and are brilliant players and have always played a vital role in most of the Proteas victories.

I look at it as a positive, it proves that the Proteas are one heck of a force when even one or two of their batsmen shine. Graeme Smith and Hashim Amla were the only two batsmen needed to get the Proteas over the line and With Smith looking in fine form again imagine Smith, Rudolph, Amla, Kallis and AB or firing at the top order with Morkel, Steyn and Vernon doing the work with the ball? I’m hoping we see this in Joburg on Thursday and I have a feeling we are in for another ripper of a Test match.

I have never seen a more exciting match in ALL FORMATS of the game it was touch and go up untill day three when Smith and Amla terrorised the Ausie bowling. Graeme Smith is now the leading run scorrer for South Africa in the series so far a position he hasn’t been in for a while now and although most readers will nail me for being obsessed with Graeme Smith I can honestly say I’m probably one of very few supporters who stuck by him through thick and thin.

I saw some good signs as early as the T20’s and his 50 in the ODI was a Graeme Smith determined to win over a nations trust. he then top scored in SA’s first innings and went on to Smash an unbeaten century with a pretty good strike rate, I see more good news for Smith in Joburg and hopefully by the end of the Sri Lankan tour he will be the Graeme Smith we all know and love, the punisher.

I am not yet going to comment on Rudolph or though he did play well while he was at the crease, I just can’t help but wonder whether that stance of his is the problem? but then again he has been very succesful with it domestically but I do feel that his stance exposes his stumps more than one would hope….

Kitcheners Mom

November 14, 2011 in Uncategorized

On Kitcheners recent blog he refers to my mom as a prostitute (night worker in Amsterdam)

I don’t have a problem with the old fart spending half his day on creating a post for me but I do think it’s bad form to diss someones mom, anyway Darwinia seems to think it’s amusing which is fine but my opinion differs, anyway Kitchener deleted my comment to Daqrwinia (you know, being his hypocritical cowardly self again)

So since she or Kitchener couldn’t answer, I’m a bit confused now you see.

you see apprently Kitchener calling my mother a prostitute is just a “joke” and is amusing

So if I had to call Kitcheners mother a cum swallowing slut that services men for money would you consider that amusing or funny? please take into the consideration that that might be exactly what she does, and she probably does a better job than she does of raising children.

is this funny? is it “amusing” well it should be because it’s just a joke . .. right?
