March 31, 2011 in Uncategorized

In a freakish incident on the golf course yesterday, Dan Carter, injured his knee and will probably miss the World Cup!

 

Is this the end of the All Blacks chances?

Bok captain announced on 2nd of May

March 31, 2011 in Uncategorized

My eerste indrukke is dat Pieter de Villiers uiteindelik die lig gesien het! As John Smit beslis sy kaptein sou wees, hoekom maak hy dus hierdie stelling?

Wat kommerwek is dat hy dink John Smit is nogsteeds goed genoeg om vir die Bokke te haak! Kyk hy ooit die Super 15! Dit beteken dus John Smit gaan beslis as speler saam na die Wereldbeker! Hoe moet ander hakers in SA nou voel? Watter motivering het hul nog?

John Smit moet eerder in ‘n beampte hoedanigheid die Bokgroep vergesel. Hy kan beslis as motiveerder waarde toevoeg. Dalk moes hy in die Protea-kamp gewees het.

Victor Matfield, is vir my die geskikste kandidaat. Hy was al Bokkaptein en het groot sukses met die Bulle behaal. Hy was ook Bokkaptein toe ons in NZ gewen het. Dit sal die kroon span op een van die wereld se beste slotte ooit, as hy kaptein is van die Bokspan!

Jean de Villiers, sou ek as onderkaptein aanstel. Schalk Burger en Juan Smith is geensins verseker van hul plekke nie, en/of moet geensins outomatiese keuses wees nie. Met Willem Alberts tans die wereld se beste no.7 en verskeie ander flanke soos Josh Strauss, Francois Louw, Keegan Daniels en Heinrich Brussow ook nog daar, sou dit fataal wees om Smith of Burger te oorweeg.

 

Jake White reckons that Schalk Burger, Juan Smith and Pierre Spies/Danie Rossouw should be the loosies! White has obiviously forgotten the World Champion Wallabies (1995) who tried to win  consecutive World Cups with players that won it in 1991. Don’t pick players pass their sell-by date!

 

Bok players still on contract for this year:

Bakkies Botha, Schalk Burger, Fourie du Preez, Jaque Fourie, Bryan Habana, Victor Matfield, JP Pietersen, John Smit, Juan Smith en Pierre Spies.

New contracted players for this year:

Juan de Jongh, Jean de Villiers, Jannie du Plessis, CJ van der Linde en Gurthrö Steenkamp.

Good to see that Snor is still considering Frans Steyn as member for the Bok squad!

Wie (en waarom) dink jy moet die Bokkaptein wees vir die ‘holy grail’ 2011?

 

PS: as WP-man was ek bitter teleurgesteld in Kitch Christie se besluit om Tiaan Straaus “van ‘n Wereldbeker te ontneem” het in 1995! Tog, het dit sin gemaak dat Tiaan en Francois Pienaar verskillende volgelinge gehad het en dus die kamp kon verdeel het. Snor moet nou hier uit leer en John Smit nie kies nie!

Welgedaan Nieu-Seeland! Clarke new cappy!

March 30, 2011 in Uncategorized

Gedog ek wil net ‘bow’ vir Australia se ‘kleinboet’. Nee, dit is nie sarkasties nie, ek bedoel dit. Vir ‘n eilandjie met +4miljoen mense is hul sport prestasies ver bo gemiddeld tot briljant! Hul mag dalk nooit ‘n Krieket Wereldbeker wen nie, maar hul weet hoe om die Choketeas te klop!

 

Hul mag dalk nie in atletiek, motorsport, tennis, surfing uitstaan nie of domineer in die Olimpiese Spele nie. Tog…

Nieu-Seeland se sport die afgelope 12 maande:

Die All Blacks is die beste span op die planeet. Drienasie-kampioene en ook nommer 1 op die IRB ranglys!

Die Kiwis is die Rugbyliga Wereldkampioene!

Die Kiwis is die wereld se nommer 1 netbalspan!

Die Kiwi sokkerspan was die enigste span wat nie ‘n wedstyrd in laasjaar se Sokker ‘holy grail’ verloor het nie!

 

Pakistan vs India! Who will win this one and who do you want to win it!

 

Michael Clarke has been appointed as the new Australian cricket captain after Ricky Ponting stepped down from the position. Ponting will still play for the Aussies if picked. Shane Watson will be the vice-captain!

Graeme Smith vs Elton John?

March 28, 2011 in Uncategorized

It’s Tuesday morning. I’m on holiday and my Stormers won! Still, even two days of drinking didn’t help. It still bloody well hurts. It felt like I swallowed two meters of barbwire and Minora blades; and then someone ripped it through my guts! Thank you Choketeas!

 

Die Choketeas en die All Blacks slaap in een bed as dit by Wereldbekers kom.

Jacques Kallis is die Niel Jenkins van krieket….laat ek dit eerder net daar los.

 

How ‘difficult’ it was for and uncomfortable did Allan Donald looked as the game swung in to NZ’s favour!

 

Congrats to the Sharks and Cruasders for an awesome rugby game. Hopefully the Northen Hemisphere realises that this is what William Webb Ellis meant when he picked up the ball and started to run!

 

Sonny Bill Williams gaan die All Blacks die holy grail laat wen! Ja, ja, ignoreer maar my stelling maar ek sit weereens my kop op ‘n blok. Onthou ek het jul al vier jaar terug vertel dat Bryan Habana en Pierre Spies overrated is….. Onthou ek het jul vertel Jacques Kallis het nie BMT nie….

Aus cricket and the Bulls in the same boat!

March 25, 2011 in Uncategorized

It’s been a while coming and finally World Champions Australia is on the way home! After 3 succesful victories in the last 3 World Cups, it is all over! They are the only country to have won it 4 times and played in 5 finals!

 

Australia always believed that they will have the talent to replace legends like Adam Gilchrist, Steve and Mark Waugh, Glen McGrath, Shane Warne and Matthew Hayden. Others like Andrew Symonds went off the rail and that didn’t help.

 

Australian Cricket was wrong; en toe hul wakker word was hul koffie koud! What is more worrying is that aussie kids are not queing up to play cricket. AFL, League and Soccer are more popular, so ACB will have to take a deep think how they will get Australian cricket out of this slump!

It’s back to the drawing board for Australia and this is where the Bulls have future issues to be considered as well. Legends like Fourie du Preez, Victor Matfield and Bakkies Botha won’t just be replaced! Losing Guthro Steenkamp and Danie Rossouw wont help either. Wynand Olivier and Gary Botha, well who cares? The Bulls so called ‘structures’ was always praised! Simply their ‘structure’ was/is to ‘buy’ players! Money talks!

 

Go Stormers and Proteas!

 

Put your ‘balls’ on the guillotine! Predict the winners this weekend.

Cometh the hour, cometh the Ponting!

March 24, 2011 in Uncategorized

Come the big occassion, come the big player! Don’t compare Jacques Kallis to a Ricky Ponting, Sachin Tendulkar or Brian Lara! Jacques Kallis is the Niel Jenkins of cricket! Stats show ‘how’ great the are, but, the real facts are concealed!

Ricky Ponting scored his 6th Wolrd Cup century, 104 from 118 balls! Will they win the game? Maybe not, but, he did it against the tournament favourites! The previous time he played India in a CWC, was the final in SA were Ponting scored a century as well!

Kallis the King, my arse!

Shark killing Crusade

March 24, 2011 in Uncategorized

Hierdie naweek gaan sekere spanne beslis getoets word. Die Sharks kom voor ‘n helse toets te staan maar dalk kan Twickenham hul meer begunstig as op die Suid-Eiland van NZ. Die Sharks sal gewis ‘n paar duisend ondersteuners daar he (verwag glo 55000 mense).

 

Sonder Patrick Lambie endie Crusaders met Dan Carter, gaan daar nie veel byt in die haaie wees nie! Jacques-Louis Potgieter (sal nie eers die WP Vodacomspan haal nie) was net so puik kopie soos CJ vd Linde! Upfront will be more equal as soon as the Beast replaces the Sharks weakness, John Smit. Before that the Sharks will struggle in the scrums. It, however, is at the back were the Crusaders is going to demolish the Sharks. Carter vs Potgieter, SB Williams vs Meyer Bosman and Robbie Fruean vs Stefan Terblanche! Eish!

 

Tradisionele derbies tussen die Brumbies vs Warathas kan enige kant toe gaan, terwyl die Bulle lanklaas onder soveel druk is soos komende Saterdag vs die Leeus. Dit beteken nie veel om te erken dat John Mitchell se Leeus baie verbeter het as hul nogsteeds verloor nie! Het die Bulle al ooit drie wedstryde in ‘n ry op Loftus verloor? Ek kan nie aan so geval dink nie! In 2002 se Super 14 het hul wel al hul wedstyde verloor, maar 3 in ‘n ry…?

 

Die Stormers gaan Saterdag vir die eerste keer vanjaar met ‘n bonuspunt wen! Die Force gaan met ‘n Kaapse ‘gail force’ te doen kry!

 

Vir die Cheetahs;, ai, hul kan ten minste Surfers Paradise se strande en warm weer geniet, want Saterdag gaan hul pak vat in Brisneyland!

 

Kom speel saam en sit jou ‘kop op die blok’!

 

My keuses in BOLD.   
Week 6

Even after Pakistan’s raping of the Windies, the poll (see on the right) still shows that most bloggers don’t reckon they will win the World Cup!

 

Aus vs India, who would you like to win? Yeah, I know the answer!

Time for Kallis to come to the party!

March 23, 2011 in Uncategorized

Best at CWC so far (according to Yahoo article), shows only two South Africans in the team:

Do you agree?

 

Again many South African fans’ ‘best cricketer of all time’ doesn’t feature. Rightly so! It is time for Jacques Kallis to ‘step up to the pitch’ and show that he has BMT and can bat at a pace where he doesn’t put more pressure on batsmen to follow.

 

1: Andrew Strauss

2: Sachin Tendulkar

3: Kumar Sangakkara

4: Ryan ten Doeschate

5: AB de Villiers

6: Shakib Al Hasan

9 Stormers in SA barometer!

March 22, 2011 in Uncategorized

Hopefully, Peter Snor de Villiers and his clowns (selectors) will realise that Pierre Skouponie Spies, Wynand Meisiekind Olivier, Werner Kruger, Gary Botha, Chilliboy Ralapele, Deon Slegman, sorry, Stegman and Bryan Habana should not be invited to any Bok squad.

 

Die Stormers se skrum met Wickus Blaauw en Brock Harris was kookwater en albei hierdie twee stutte kan nog die groen en goud dra.

 

Francois Louw het vir Stegman en Dewaldt Potgieter oorskadu. Peter Grant, kan maar gerus saam gaan ‘holy grail’ toe! Deon Fourie was weereens kookwater en dan moet Tiaan Liebenberg ook nog terug kom. Andries Bekker het nou dieselfde ‘pressence’ as Victor Matfield en dit is goed vir die toekoms van Bokrugby.

 

Heinrich Brussow was goed as hy by die bal uitgekom het, maar is nog onfiks. Phil Waugh se afwesigheid het ook bygedra tot sy ‘goed’ en daarom kies ek Francois hierdie week, aangesien hy met 2 Bokflanke kompeteer het.

 

Wat my bekommer is die swak hanteringsvaardighede van veral SA se vleuels. Dit is kommerwekkend dat ek ‘n skrumskakel, Sarel Pretorius, wat ‘n plaasvervanger vleuel opgekom het, hierdie week bo die ander vleuels uitgestaan het.

 

Wie was SA se beste spelers in week 5?

Wk 5 SA Barometer Span Weke in
15 Gio Aplon Stormers NE
14 Odwa Ndungane Sharks NE

6 Francois Louw Stormers NE
5 Alistair Hargreaves Sharks 2
4 Andries Bekker Stormers 2

2 Bismarck du Plessis Sharks 5
1 Wickus Blaauw Stormers NE
  Bulle   0
  Cheethas   1

March 21, 2011 in Uncategorized

Behalwe die Stomers se ‘lekker’, het die Cheetahs seker vir die grootste verrassing gesorg om die Shitney Blou Bulle te slag! CAS party seker die hele week!
