The Pumas should move to Nelspruit

November 5, 2012 in Uncategorized

The Ford “no beach only stinking coal mines” Pumas push the EP “Super Rugby Wannabies with Loads of Cash and A Beach” Kings close in the Currie Cup First Division this year. After 240 minutes of rugby only one point separated them and that point made the Kings champions.

In the meantime the Pumas found some cash to lure a number of new young players to the mine dumps of Witbank, which says a lot for their recruiting skills.

Ya Ya Hartzenberg (23) – flank (WP u/19, WP u/21, SA u/20, WP, Stormers)
Rosko Specman (23) – wing (EP u/19, Sharks u/21, Sharks XV, Sharks CC)
Stefan Watermeyer (24) – centre (Blue Bulls since u/16 and part time Griqua)
Wilmaure Louw (25) – centre (Griquas)
Frankie Herne (23) – hooker (Cheetahs and EP Kings)

I suggest that they seriously consider moving their headquarters to the beautiful Nelspruit, next to the Kruger National Park and a short drive from the beaches of Mozambique.

For your entertainment here’s Bob Dylan (although I don’t think he has ever been to Mozambique)

  1. The Pumas are already in Nelspruit. Have been for thie whole season.

  2. Murray, will definitely be injured by end of season. He will have all the doctors and physios cell numbers at Kings, within the first few days.

  3. Well maybe the Pumas are so great because there is nothing else to do except train for rugby games?
    Anyhow the EP Kings are now starting to make some decent signings. Although not all star signings these signings will at least make them competitive in the CC and next season they should boss the CC first div.
    And with the Lions losing more and more senior players that promo/releg match is getting more equal everyday.

    • Not sure it will be all tha equal but a lot depend on whether the Lions get the games they plan to keep their players match fit going.

      Assuming all the players are fit at the time of the wooden spoon knockouts the Lions team would look something like this:

      15 Andries Coetzee, 14 Ruan Combrinck, 13 Jaco Taute, 12 Alwyn Hollenbach, 11 Lionel Mapoe, 10 Elton Jantjies, 9 Michael Bondesio, 8 Warren Whiteley, 7 Jaco Kriel, 6 Derick Minnie, 5 Franco van der Merwe, 4 Ruan Venter, 3 Ruan Botha, 2 Callie Visagie, 1. JC Janse van Rensburg

      16 Martin Bezuidenhout/Francois du Toit, 17 CJ van der Linde, 18 Stephan Greeff, 19 Willie Britz/Warwick Tecklenburg, 20 Ross Cronje, 21 Marnitz Boshoff, 22 Anthony Volminck

      I don’t know the Kings players but putting a side together from what we know they have (not sure if these are their best options so don’t shoot me :) ). Maybe someone more familiar with their team can update this.

      15 Hadleigh Parkes, 14 Michael Killian, 13 Waylon Murray, 12 Andries Strauss, 11 Marcello Sampson, 10 Demetri Catrakilis, 9 Nicolás Vergallo, 8 Luke Watson, 7 Wimpie van der Walt, 6 Devin Oosthuizen, 5 Steven Sykes, 4 Darron Nell (Captain), 3 Charl du Plessis, 2 Bandise Maku, 1 Jaco Engels

      16 Hannes Franklin, 17 Schalk Ferreira, 18 Cornell du Preez, 19 Mpho Mbiyozo, 20 Falie Oelschig, 21 George Whitehead, 22 Tiger Mangweni
