    So the Springbok team to face Australia was announced this morning. And as was expected, Vermeulen and Goosen are both included in the match-22. Finally Meyer have listened to the fans by moving Hougaard to the wing and putting Pienaar in at starting scrumhalf. Tough luck on Mvovo as he didn’t do much wrong in […]

    Bryce Lawrence is getting mauled

    I am as upset about a terrible ref as anyone else, and it’s got to be said that Bryce Lawrence got the whole country united. United in hating him. Let’s not dwell too much on what he did wrong (long list…) or right (very short list). The most enjoyable part is the love being shown […]

    Springbok team to face Namibia

    The springbok team to face Namibia has been announced. P Divvy made 5 changes from the team that beat Fiji. I’m glad to see that he decided to rest a few players, I’m also glad that Chilliboy and Juan de Jongh are in the squad, but I would’ve preffered them to be in the starting […]

    Fourie du Preez : Springbok Rugby Player Profiles

    Arguably the best scrumhalf, nay, rugby player in the world. Screw Richie McCaw, Fourie du Preez makes an immediate and major impact on the game as soon as his studs touch the pitch. It’s not for idle reasons that he has been nominated as SA player of the year 3 times and winning twice. So […]
