    I now feel sorry for all the players that still have to go on eoyt. The season must feel never ending for them. Sometimes wish that we never had to tour at the end of the year. Our Bok players from every team must surely be wishing for rest now than to play more rugby. The rugby year is just way, way too long.

    Just hope our Bok players from each team, all come home injury free.

    @ Puma:
    Looks like Bryan could be out, we’ll know today.

    I am amazed that, given the intensity of the game that there were not more injuries.

    Lots of bruises today though for sure!

    Thanks and respect, Puma.

    Ja, the doc’s absence might have made a difference but surely not that extent? I think the pack ran out of gas. Of all SA teams the Sharks have really had the toughest season. Really, they should all be excused from eoyt I reckon….
