    All Blacks to make Fairy tale finish

    I don’t think its a question anymore, if the All Blacks will be winning the Web Ellis trophy on Sunday but by how far. Many will point at the unpredictability of the French and their history against the All Blacks in World Cup knockout games but I think even a 150% performance by this French […]

    Well that didn’t go according to plan

    Last week we got really excited with the start of the quarter final stage at this year’s Rugby World Cup in New Zealand. South Africa was up against Australia and sadly we saw a result that broke the hearts of about 50 million South Africans. (This month’s census could verify that number.) The Springboks dominated […]

    Let the Real Games Begin!

    So the pool stages of the Rugby World Cup are officially over and the real competition can start now. The minnow sides had their time to shine but sadly it was all for nothing with the top eight sides on the World rankings managing to either fly or scrape their way to the business end […]

    Eden Park – All Black Fortress

    If you had a chance to have a look at the complete schedule for the World Cup you would’ve have noticed that the All Blacks aren’t taking any chances on where they will be playing their matches.

    Since the Australian loss to Ireland over the weekend there has been a lot to say in the SA media about the fact that the Boks will now most probably have to play Australia in the quarter final of the Rugby World Cup. Then they’ll have to go on to win New Zealand and lastly […]

    Springboks vs Fiji Preview

    P divvy announced a strong team to face the “look like a lock, run like a wing” Fijians. Unlikely that the Boks will go down against them, but we said the same thing against Wales. A big surprise is Bakkies Lazarus Botha. Last week almost had his leg amputated and now he is in the […]

    New Zeeland bulldozes Tonga in RWC 2011 opener
