I am in an absolutely awesome mood this morning as I completed a project for KPMG a day ahead of schedule. This means a free lunch and an early start to the weekend. I am going to get as much sport in this weekend as humanly possible!
Firstly, today I would love to watch a bit of the TdF to see what Armstrong was on about when he tweeted that today is going to be one of the toughest stages ever. He made mention that it was a very up and down stage with narrow roads and it was the only time (in 1995) that he really saw Indurain on the ropes. It should make for some good viewing I reckon!
Then as the blog’s title suggested, some sort of recipe to exact some revenge onto the Kiwis for the embarrasing of the Boks that was handed down last week!
Please, for the sake of my good health, have your one good game in a year tomorrow morning! You are the link between the forwards and the backs. Be the link, not the broken Telkom line!
There will be no better opportunity for Flo to prove that he is world class, than this weekend. I fear if he has another invisible man performance like last week, that he might get relegated to the bench. Along with Schalk and Spies, the three of them will have to beat ol Richie to each and every loose ball and knock the stuffing out of him at every opportunity.
The Tight Five:
The scrums for me were not such a great disaster last week, but I hope that they can improve that aspect a bit. John, please, show that you are a hooker, not a third prop! Hit some rucks, find your jumpers and LEAD THE PACK! Your leadership which is the only reason Gary Botha or Tiaan Liebenberg are not in the squad, has been missing. Light that fire in the engine room by leading by example! All Victor and Danie has to do is play the way they did in the Super 14 final and they will be fine.
It all depends on Ricky whether the backs will be able to get away some attacks. Morne has proven in the Super 14 that he can get his backline away, and even score some tries himself. If numbers 1 – 9 can get the ball going forward, Morne and his outside players should prove that we can also score some tries.
Attack like demons, defend like your lives depend on it!
Jean and Zane:
Jean, you can’t go for the intercept every time!
Zane, don’t use the high ball every time, the small chip and chase will be a nice change of scenery for you!
Well, there you go, it’s very simple really.
Then my favorite CC fixture of the year, the Bulls vs Sharks as I am a Bull and my girlfriend is a Shark. Imagine the fun I had in 2007 when she phoned me from Kings Park to brag about the Sharks Super 14 victory, and when I phoned back 3 minutes later when Habana scored!
Have a great weekend dudes and dudettes!
