I watch a few rugby shows to help me better understand the nuances of rugby. You get some expert opinions, insight and the play back with different commentary, which gives you a better perspective of this great game rugby union.

While there are many similarities in the shows I watch, namely: Boots and all, Super Rugby and Reunion, there is one key difference between the South African shows I watch and the new zealand one. and that is they accentuate the positives and gloss over the negatives in fact negatives are merely mentioned before shrugged off in light of another positives.

Case in point the difference between Adam Thompson’s citing and Dean Greyling’s. We waxed lyrical and screamed and shouted, i myself included (i also do not enjoy watching Flip Van Der Merwe being given marching orders more often than not), in comparison the New Zealanders all said that it was barely a touch.

What i would like to see from s as south Africans is more focus on our positives and where to find positives rather than spend weeks months and years complaining about what is wrong.

  1. Welcome to the Blogworld, watch Reunion closely though, as they kiss Richie’s ass at least twice a show. It’s easy to have a rugby program when your team is playing like the All Blacks are.

  2. Just wanted to say welcome here on the sportblogs. Be aware that there are as many differing opinions as bloggers and having a thick skin is a prerequisite. All that said, this is a fun group and the more the merrier!

  3. But if we don’t complain, what do we write about? ;)
