9 days till holy grail!

August 31, 2011 in Uncategorized

Only 9 days!

Let’s rewind starting with 2007:

Where were you on this day and where did you watch the game?

It was Sunday morning 5:00 am as friends and I watched the final at my home! Party started the previous night in Brisvegas, drinking Springboks (had to explain to the pubs how to make it) and went straight through. It continued till the Sunday evening at 10:00 pm. Did not go to work the next day! Called in sick, but, everyone knew!

Highlight? Bokke smashing the Poms in the pool game 36-0! Bryan Habana burnt like toast by Takudzwa Ngwenya. All Blacks choked against the French, again!

Let’s predict the safest option with minimal ‘upsets’:

Pool A: winner NZL & Runner up France

Pool B: winner England & Runner up Arg or Scotland

Pool C: winner Aus & Runner up Ireland

Pool D: winner SA & Runner up Wales/Samoa

 

Possible Quarter finals:

QF1: Wallabies vs Wales/Samoa

QF2: England vs France

QF3: Springboks vs Ireland

QF4: All Blacks vs Argentina/Scotland

 

Possible semi-finals:

SF1: Wallabies vs France/England

SF2: Springboks vs All Blacks

 

Kevin D’s Final prediction: All Blacks vs Wallabies

10 Days to go! All Blacks vs Wallabies final?

August 30, 2011 in Uncategorized

The road for the reigning World Champion, the Springboks, is going to be a hard and rocky road. No, it’s going to be hell! For the Springboks to become the first team ever, to defend their title successfully, they can claim this one without ‘excuses’ like in 2007 (from other countries fans), ala ‘they didn’t play the All Blacks or Wallabies’! It is true though.

Dit sal die Springbokke in ‘n uniek heiligdom plaas indien hul die eerste span ooit sal word, om ‘Bill’ suksesvol te kon verdedig. Ek glo egter groot aan ‘home ground’ advantage. Van al die ‘top dogs’ wat die ‘holy grail’ aangebied het, was almal in die finaal in daai toernooi.

1987: In NZ – winner All Blacks      1991: In Eng – Eng vs Wallabies final

1995: In SA- winner Bokke            2003: In Aus – Wallabies vs Eng final

Die All Blacks se verlore het hul  op ‘n gepaste tyd gekom, glo ek. Niemand kan dus nou weergee dat die All Blacks te gou ge-peak het nie! Daar sal ook effens minder verwagting onder die All Blacks ondersteuners wees aangesien hul verseker nou sal twyfel. Ek glo ook die verlore beteken nie veel nie aangesien dit ‘n All Black B-span in Suid Afrika was en ook ‘n verloor in Brisbane. Solank die All black spelers se selfvertroue nie ‘n knou weg het nie, glo ek hul sal dit kan doen. Onthou, die All Blacks het nog NOOIT ‘n ‘holy grail’ wedstryd in Nieu-Zeeland verloor nie. Dit sit ook nie sommer in enige span se broek om die All Blacks daar met Richie McCaw en Dan Carter in die span te gaan klop nie.

The Wallabies have the ‘easier’ route to the final, however, a possible semis vs France or England might be the tricky one. I believe England might have somewhat of psychological advantage over the Aussies. The ‘Mother land’ beat the ‘convicts’ in 1995 and 2003 in the World Cup encounters. The Poms also smashed the Wallabies at the end of last year’s UK tour. The Wallabies only once beat the Poms in the 1991 World Cup final in London.

For the Springboks, everything should fall into place. I think that the Boks are too ‘old’. It is one thing to say that England won in 2003 due to experience. The ‘expereinced’ English champions were not pass their sell by date, and the interpretations of some laws were different. The Boks, however, is more compareable to the Wallabies of 1995, a reigning World Champion team that was just too slow. I, however, believe in miracles!

Natuurlik gaan die kampioenspan ook geluk nodig he. die spring van die bal, ‘n regte of verkeerde besluit deur die ‘sheriff’ met die fluitjie….Let the count down begin!

Wallabies are the Kings of the South!

August 28, 2011 in Uncategorized

Aussie Aussie Aussie, oi oi oi! Wallabies Wallabies Wallabies, mooi mooi mooi!
 
The Wallabies are the Kings of the Southern Hemisphere. The  2011 statistics shows that the Reds are the Super 15 champs and the Wallabies the Trinations champs!
 
Selfs in  ‘n afgewaterde Drienasies, het die Wallabies tog ‘n volsterkte Springbokspan in Durban en ‘n volsterkte All Blacks span in Brisvegas geklop. Interessant is dat albei spanne ‘n meer skop wedstrydplan (die weer het dit beinvloed verseker, dit het die heeldag gesous in Brisvegas) van gebiedsvoordeel as die hoogste prioriteit gehad het. Albei spanne het van ‘box kicks’ gebruik gemaak ala die Bokke, so dalk het die Bokke ‘n besliste kans oor 12 dae. Die Wallabies het 23 keer geskop, die All Blacks 22 keer. Verbroude duikslae; Wallaibes 16 en die All Blacks 17.
 
Ek gaan nie vandag verder oor die ‘holy grail’ bespeigel nie, sal wag tot later hierdie week. Errol Tobias het juis verwys (see previous blog) na ‘n no.9 wat die opponente moet aanvat. Will Genia het 2 breekslae gemaak; een self gedruk en die ander het gelei tot Kurtley Beale se wen drie toe die telling 20-20 was.
 
Interesting to see that the poll (see right) still doesn’t reflect the Wallabies’ big chance in the ‘holy grail’!

Errol Tobias spot on except for Meisiekind!

August 26, 2011 in Uncategorized

Errol Tobias, has two main concerns about the Bok squad. Valid concerns, I agree.
 
He reckons the Bok midfield paiting of Jean de Villiers’ and Jacques Fourie’s defense is nog good enough.
 
Yes, the All Blacks and Wallabies can expose those channels. The problem is aggrevated when Morne Steyn is at no.10. Morne, brilliant ‘sharp shooter’, is not a Henry ‘the Blade’ Honniball! OK, he is not Butch James either. Steyn is OK, on the scramble defense (not making tackles front on, but, chasing backwards). Steyn doesn’t shoot up in defense and would prefer the opponents first receiver to rather pass. This creates and issue where De Villiers have to patrol channel 2 & 3. The opponents know this and this confusing and lack of trust in Steyn’s defense, creates opportunities. Jean’s defensive techinique is not to grass cut, but, rather to tackle the ball. Against a giant like Sonny Bill Williams, this is not good enough. It is more difficult to offload if your legs are cut from you and you are going down. By standing in the tackle (SBW) the outside defender is drawn in,to assist. That is then ‘game on’ for SBW to offload. If SBW is ‘grass cut’ (take his legs out) then the other defenders can ‘jockey’ (track them) the other attackers and eliminate the off load to them.
 
Tobias, also reckons that all the Bok no.9′s are not ‘asking questions’ of the opponents defense. I totally agree. Francois Hougaard does break and keep the defensive honest. Fourie du Preez and Ruan Pienaar are more kicking no.9′s. The defense has to be tested. Their pilliar (1st defender next to the ruck, post (2nd defender) and key (3rd defender- who controls the forward movement of the defense) must be force to stay in their channels longer. No.9′s who just pass, make the post and key drift/slide quicker and easier. When the defense then shift, there is minimal space on the outside. The only gaps might be on the inside channels. Again the Boks do not play/utilise this as often as the Wallabies & All Blacks.
 
So the ‘mayor’ of Caledon has it correct, except for recommending the one dimensional Wynand Meisiekind Olivier. Juan de Jongh is the best tackling centre in the Bok squad.
 
Will I start without Fourie du Preez? No, however, he has to get his ‘Fuhrer’ form back otherwise, I won’t have a problem with Hougaard starting in the play offs. 
 
Sit jou Balle op die Guillotine:
Wallabies vs All Blacks
Pumas vs WP
Leopards vs Bulls
Griekwas vs Cheetahs

Bokgroep: Flo in! Whooah!

August 24, 2011 in Uncategorized

Natuurlik gaan almal nie te vrede wees met die hele groep nie. Niks nuut nie.

Ek is baie, baie bly dat Francois Louw wel die groep gehaal het. Ek skryf nou al vir jare dat ‘Flo’ SA se beste fetcher is. Ek het ook al verduidelik dat die WP/Stormers Flo nie as uit-en-uit oopkant aanwend nie. Die Stormers speel met linker en regterkant flanke, dus, roteer daai rol tussen Schalk Burger en Flo. Wat Flo so baie goed maak is dat hy meestal die rol van ‘n no.7 (SA terme) speel, tog ‘n ‘meneer’ op die grond is, balle stadig maak en omkeer. Hy staan ook bittermin strafskoppe af. Wat kan ‘n mens dus hieruit aflei? Schalk Burger en Willem Alberts gaan om die no.7 posisie meeding? Of gaan Pierre Spies, Albert en Burger om die no.8 trui ‘arm druk’? Baie geluk aan Snor en die keurders met Flo se insluiting.

Hoe de fok? Hoe kan Odwa Ndungane bo Lwazi Mvovo die span haal. Dit kan tog nie ‘n kleurding wees nie! Interessant dat beide Sharks is….Ian McIntosh!  

 

Pierre Spies, CJ vd Linde, John Smit, Ruan Pienaar en Johan Muller het seker almal kopiee van Snor se beweerde ‘seks-tape’!

Net jammer dat Andries Bekker en Duane Vermeulen beseer is. Veral Bekker as impakslot om Bakkies te vervang in die tweede helfte, sou uiters doeltreffend gewees het.

 

Aan al die Bulle-bloggers hier wat mos dink ek het ‘n strepiesbril, hopelik sal dit nou duidleik raak dat ek spelers beoordeel volgens hul vaardighede en nie volgens die Bul-sukses wat hul dra nie. Vir hoe lank skryf ek nie al dat Deon Stegman, Garry Botha, Werner Kruger, Zane Kirchner en Wynand Olivier nie op toetsvlak hoort nie!? Danie Rossouw en Pierre Spies is moer gelukkig om wel die groep te gehaal het! Beserings van ander het hul in die prentjie gehou!

Die Springbokke:

Voorspelers: Tendai ‘Beast’ Mtawarira (Sharks), Gurthro Steenkamp (Bulls), John Smit (Sharks, K), Bismarck du Plessis (Sharks), Chiliboy Ralepelle (Bulls), Jannie du Plessis (Sharks), CJ van der Linde (Lions), Bakkies Botha (Bulls), Victor Matfield (Bulls, ok), Johann Muller (Ulster), Danie Rossouw (Bulls), Willem Alberts (Sharks), Schalk Burger (WP), Heinrich Brüssow (Free State Cheetahs), Francois Louw (Bath), Pierre Spies (Bulls)
 

Agterspelers: Francois Steyn (Racing Metro), Patrick Lambie (Sharks), JP Pietersen (Sharks), Gio Aplon (WP), Jaque Fourie (Province), Jean de Villiers (WP), Juan de Jongh (WP), Bryan Habana (WP), Odwa Ndungane (Sharks), Morne Steyn (Bulls), Butch James (Golden Lions), Fourie du Preez (Bulls), Francois Hougaard (Bulls), Ruan Pienaar (Ulster)

 

Snor het dus sy eie kop gevolg met die behoud van John Smit as kaptein. Bloggers het anders gedink:

Schalk Burger 193 23.77% 23.77%  
Victor Matfield 275 33.87% 33.87%  
John Smit 98 12.07% 12.07%  
Jean de Villiers 246 30.3% 30.3%

 

 

 

 

 

 Die Wallabies is natuurlik meer betrokke by van die veld af ‘plettervatte’. Kroeg-gevegte in Frankryk tussen die ‘young guns’, Quade Cooper, Kurtley Beale en James O’Connor laasjaar, maak dat rugby unie, vir ‘n slag die agterblaaie haal! Ek is bly Robbie Deans het O’Connor aan die bek geruk nadat die ‘Justin Bieber’ van wereldrugby, laas week die Wallabies  se Wereldbeker-groep aankondigings pers geleentheid gemis het asook die amptelik spanfoto. Hy was glo die aand te vore in ‘n paar spog uithangplekke in die Coogee en Bondi Beach areas opgemerk. O’Connor was vroeer vanjaar ook baie ‘ongewild’ onder oud-Wallabies toe hy oor sy skuif na Melbourne verwys het as; “the move is to improve my brand“! Saterdag gaan die Waalbies vir die eerste keer sedert 2001 probeer om die Drienasietitel te verower hier in Brisneyland. Go the Wallabies!

Gear and Sivivatu not in All Blacks’ World Cup squad!

August 23, 2011 in Uncategorized

Is that depth or madness?

 

No place for Hosea Gear and Sitiveni Sivivatu. Wingers’ places went to Zac Guildford, Cory Jane and Isaia Toeava.

 

Wat kan ‘n mens hieruit aflei?

  

1: Die briljante Israel Dagg kan seker as vleuel oorweeg word indien Mills Muliana as die heelagter ingespan gaan word.

2: Die All Blacks besef die Bokke het net een wedstrydplan.

Skop-jaag-hoop-en-bid-vir-die-beste-wedstrydplan. Daarom dat Gear en Sivivatu nie gekies is nie. Hul is nie die bestes onder die hoebal nie, en kan nie waffers skop nie. Jane en Toeava (ook heelagters) tesame met Guilford het veiliger hande. 

3: Die All Blacks kan dalk met 15: Mills 14: Dagg en 11:Jane/Toeava drie heelagters in die agterste driehoek teen die Bokke speel.

  

All Blacks se groep:

Agterspelers: Mils Muliaina, Israel Dagg, Isaia Toeava, Corey Jane, Zac Guildford, Conrad Smith, Richard Kahui, Ma’a Nonu, Sonny Bill Williams, Dan Carter, Colin Slade, Jimmy Cowan, Piri Weepu, Andy Ellis

 

Voorspelers: Kieran Read, Victor Vito, Richie McCaw (capt), Adam Thomson, Jerome Kaino, Ali Williams, Brad Thorn, Sam Whitelock, Anthony Boric, Owen Franks, John Afoa, Ben Franks, Tony Woodcock, Keven Mealamu, Andrew Hore, Corey Flynn

 

Will these guys become immortals by bring ‘Bill’ back home to New Zealand?

Springbok World Cup Squad 2011

August 22, 2011 in Uncategorized

More kondig Pieter de Villiers sy Bokgroep aan wat die ‘holy grail’ in Nieu-Zeeland moet gaan verdedig. Frans Steyn en Patrick Lambie se beserings kan dalk ‘n stok in die wiel wees maar andersins behoort daar nie te veel verrassings te wees nie.

Hierdie spelers se wiele het afgekom en behoort nie daar te wees nie:

Bjorn Basson, Werner Kruger, Wynand Olivier, Zane Kirchner, Ryan Kankowski, Odwa Ndugane en Deon Stegman.

Spelers wat moontlik ongelukkig gaan wees (om verskillende redes/faktore) en uitmis?

Flip vd Merwe, Keagan Daniels, Coenie Oosthuizen, Dean Greyling, Francois Louw, Duane Vermeulen, Andries Bekker en Adriaan Strauss.

Spelers wat BAIE gelukkig gaan wees om wel die groep te gemaak het:

John Smit, Danie Rossouw en CJ vd Linde. Dalk Johan Muller en Ruan Pienaar?

My groep sou as volg wees. Ek kies nie 3 hakers nie, want indien ‘n speler gedurende die toernooi beseer raak, mag hy vervang word, indien hy nie verder aan die toernooi sal deelneem nie.

Bokke se Groen en Goue oomblikke!

August 22, 2011 in Uncategorized

‘n Wen bly ‘n wen! Maar hoe gelukkig en opgewonde kan Bok se kind regtig wees?

 

Oor Saterdag se wen:

Goue oomblikke:

1: Morne Steyn se skopskoen.

2: Heinrich Brussow se werksverrigting

3: Bryan Habana se kruisverdediging

4: Bokke se skrum

5: Jannie du Plessis se skrumwerk puik. Bokke het vaskop ten danke aan hom.

6: Bismarck du Plessis – puik in alle opsigte

7: Bokke se ‘scramble defense’

8: Bakkies Botha!

9: Bok dissipline by afbreekpunte

10: DIE PUIK SKARE (die SAFFAS wat wel die Bokke ondersteun het). Ole, ole, ole het die Haka geneutraliseer! PUIK!

Groen oomblikke:

1: Morne Steyn en Fourie du Preez (hy is nog nie die ‘Fuhrer’ van ouds nie) se onnodig balle wegskop teen die gevaarlike teenaanvalle van die All Blacks. Takties se skoppe geenisns eers 80% nie.

2: Swak eerste linie verdediging. In die eerste helfte het die Bokke alreeds 12 vs 2 duikslae verbrou.

3: Kan nie driee druk nie

4: Lynstane domineer nie meer nie.

5: Morne Steyn speel heeltyd diep. Hy sukkel en is te voorspelbaar as hy vlakker probeer speel.

6: Bryan Habana weer twee keer uit sy lyn gekom op verdediging. Een keer amper weg doellyn toe, maar daai mis het gelei tot die All Blacks se drie wat nie toegeken was nie. Habana bly nogsteeds geen faktor op die aanval nie.

Realisties:

Dit was ‘n All Black B-span! Dit was in die Republiek. Die All Blacks was van ‘n drie beroof, alhoewel die aangee vorentoe was, Shaun Veldsman moes nie dit genoem het nie. Die  Ierse skeidsregter was dus ook verkeerd volgens die TMO reelbeplaings, en daai drie sou die All Blacks terug in die prentjie gebring het.

Heinrich Brussow was puik, en meeste SAFFAS sal saam stem. Brussow het egter nes Meneer Richie McCawesome ‘geflirt’ met die reels en het weggekom daarmee. Slimspel soos ek al vantevore genoem het. Tog, as McCawesome dit doen dan is hy skelm! MOET egter nie VERGEET nie, dat die All Blacks nie met ‘n ‘fecther’ gespeel het nie. Adam Thompson, Liam Messam en Jerome Kaino kompeteer almal vir die no.6 (blindekant flank Aus en NZ terme).

Victor Matfield moet die kaptein wees. Die Springbokke het geensins John Smit nodig nie. Briljante Bismrack du Plessis se gesigsuitdrukking en gemompel toe hy vervang was, spel duidelik sy gevoel oor die situasie uit. Verseker is daar ander wat ook voel Bismarck moet begin en slegs vervang word indien hy beseer raak. Verseker bring dit onmin in die span. Kan nie wag vir Bismarck se outobiografie nie!

  

Bokbarometer:

15: Patrick Lambie (5- te kort op veld maar het niks verkeerd gedoen nie en moet bo Frans Steyn begin)

13: Jacques Fourie (7)    

12: Jean de Villiers (8)

Bismarck’s disgust says it all!

John Smit must go!

That was the clear message from Bismarck du Plessis when he was replaced by John Smit. Ridiculous to take your best player of the field!

Pieter de Villiers moet nou ‘n ‘Robbie Deans’ trek op Johnno en Matfield aanstel as kaptein. Volgens die peiling kry Johnno ook die minste steun. Of, geagte Meneer John Smit, red jou eer en tree nou uit!
