    @ grootblousmile:Yip, with Jean and a nippy JdJ the midfield, who needs a number 5 there? Bekker must do what he does best, as he did right at the end.

    Last pick I made, against the Lions might sink my weekend though

    Stompies top the conference once again. Will they at least reach the final this time?

    201 @ Pietman:
    The thing is, when a forward gets vital backline ball, it’s almost inevitable that it goes to ground and is not passed….

    @ grootblousmile:
    You are going to be really praying that the PussyCats lose, aren’t you. A loss for the Lions will give you a clean sweep on bru Happy-Grin

    Not if they play like they played today, I’m afraid

    I vowed a number of weeks ago that I would not pick the Lions for a win again…

    Good afternoon all.

    I see the weather in Bloem was quite frightful.

    Stormers scrape another one.

    Coca Cola Park was a breeze to ge tinto today, even with CONTINUING roadworks at Gilloolies Interchange.

    They’ve only been busy on that piece of road for 4 1/2 years now. GREAT PRODUCTIVITY.

    Shall we move over to the new thread…

    Gbs, who in the Stormers backline can distribute consistently well off both flanks?

    en lat ons nou nie eens van samespel praat nie….

    All individualists.

    Can you handle the Game thread for us, there from the Press Box?

    211 @ fender:
    Grant, De Villiers & Juan de Jongh CAN distribute, if they put their mind to it

  • 214

    Congratulations to Puma, the biggest superbru climber so far this week!! 😉

    Grant maybe. The other two definitely cannot and the Stormers have the track record to prove it.

    If HM believed JdV could distribute he would let him play 12. But he does not.

    about the conditions for this game …. i’m sorry, but i’ve seen teams play much better rugby in the same conditions. a game that comes to mind is the first bledisloe encounter between the all blacks and wallabies, wellington 1996. conditions was about the same as it was on saturday. final score 43-6 to the all blacks.
    why i still remember that game? although the wallabies stuggled to come to terms with the conditions, the all blacks’ first knock-on came after more than 20 minutes in that game. by that time (i think) theyve scored 2 or 3 tries (not sure about that one anymore).
