New Bok Jersey

Smitty Models the New Springbok Jersey for 2009

I really like the new Springbok Rugby Jersey. It’s sleek, doesn’t stray too much from the design from the last few years, other than the Springbok being shafted (I did it AGAIN) shifted to the right. This from

Talking of the IPL Cricket Series…

I wrote an article last night about the IPL cricket series currently being played in South Africa. Well actually it was barely about that to be very honest. It was actually about the IPL cheerleaders, and more specfically, the Cheerleader Of Joy. Here is the article. Anyway all this joyousness got me thinking back to […]

IPL Cricket And The Cheerleader Of Joy

Well Spank me with a Wicket

I’ve been follwing the IPL cricket series lately, but the form of the team I support has waned somewhat lately. I always support any team Herschelle Gibbs plays in. So since the Deccan Chargers started to lose a few matches I had to focus my attention elsewhere. Lucky for me theres plenty of action on […]

Pienaar mini-me vs Morgan Mandela

Morgan Mandela signed Sophie's payslip just so she would bugger off.

I’ve been following the developments surrounding the latest Clint Eastwood directed project, The Human Factor (or ‘Untitled Mandela Project’ as it’s also known) for some time. As a huge rugby fan and one who remembers the events of ‘that day’ very well, this is a film I have to see. The movie has been shot […]

Green Point Stadium Video

I was doing a bit of a recce on the net for some dirt on the Soccer World Cup 2010 and on progress of the new Green Point Stadium. Besides a few concerns about the Cape Town winter rains playing a bit of havoc, all seems well on the project. Thought this was pretty cool, […]

Derrick HooHaaaah

The Western Force are courting South African flyhalves Derick Hougaard and Peter Grant. The Western Force will lose star flyhalf Matt Giteau next season, and are said to be in talks with both players, according to The Australian newspaper. Hougaard, who made his Test debut for the Springboks at the Subiaco Oval in Perth in […]

Introducing The Southern Kings

As expected, the new South Africa franchise will be officially known as the Southern Kings. I don’t know the history behind why they’re called this but anyway. I guess there is soemthing ‘ethnic’ behind the reasoning. I personally think they should have gone for a local tribal name or word to describe the team. Southern […]

Deccan Chargers The Team To Beat

I watched the Deccan Chargers, courtesy of Adam Gilchrist and Herschelle Gibbs hammer the Chennai Super Kings attack to hand Deccan Chargers their fourth successive win in the Indian Premier League on Monday. I have been a bit slow getting into the Indian Premier League, mainly due to work commitments and being out of the […]

Walsh Axed Due To Sauce Overload

It’s sad to hear a talented person losing the plot cos of alcohol. I just read a report about Steve Walsh, the New Zealander Rugby ref who has lost his job cos he likes the sauce too much. That’s a damn shame. Although he was one of the guys we all loved to hate, he […]

Lauaki Off The Hook For Habana High Tackle

Cape Town – The disciplinary hearing against Chiefs No. 8 Sione Lauaki was on Monday dismissed on technical grounds as the citing for a dangerous tackle was not received within the prescribed 12 hour period after the match ended. If you haven’t seen the tackle yet its amazing to think that this tackle didn’t constitute […]

A Thriller From Daniller

[ad#468×60] Hennie Daniller scored with 4 minutes to go to secure a 20 – 13 victory for the Cheetahs over the Crusaders in Bloemfontein today. The Crusaders were forced to make many more tackles than the home team as the Cheetahs put in a gutsy display against the New Zealanders. The Cheetahs have raised their […]

Heyneke Meyer is being lined up as the coach for the new Eastern Cape based South African rugby franchise, the Southern Kings. Stormers coach Rassie Erasmus had been been linked to the job in however, Meyer’s better coaching record puts him in pole position for the role. The Southern Kings will play their first game […]

Fans blown up at rugby club

I was reading a favourite rugby blog of mine recently and came across

Jake White to coach the Stormers?

IOL sport is reporting that former Springbok Rugby Coach Jake White may be in line to coach the Stormers from next season. That would rock. First move if he took over would to actually get a decent kicker in the team one would hope. Then maybe get some decent props in. I’d first try get […]

Mark Cueto foot in touch disease revisited

I love rugby. It kicks ass. I love it even more when we win. I support the Springboks. I love it when we have big tours like in the Good Old Days. There nothing that excites the fuck outa me more than a chance to give the British and Irish Lions tour to South Africa […]
