    Well last year his articles pointed out he was supporting the Stormers all the way and no way did his articles look like he was supporting the Sharks ever. So it is a surprise for me to hear he is a Shark Supporter. Better get moving and write some decent stuff about my team this year………… :mrgreen: :)

    He was also saying he hopes his side goes one better this year to take the title….

    Well done Blues. Good to have them back. Though wanted a Canes win for my bru.

    Personally glad the Canes did not even pick up a Log point… they’ll be more of a factor later on than the Blues

    Well last year I can assure you from his articles on SS he was supporting Stormers and not the Sharks. He wrote us off when we played the Reds, we beat them. Then totally wrote us off when we had to play the Stormers and we beat them. After that never read much of his articles. Now if he is a Sharks supporter will go back to SS and read what he has to say about his team then….hehehehe. Hope none of the bulldust he wrote about the Sharks last year.

    Did you get a chance to go through that Media Guide for the year I posted Thursday night?

    Sometimes when a journo supports a certain side, they tend to be overly critical of their mistakes… to attempt to appear unbiased and neutral.

    Yes did think that right now as well. Though think Blues will play a lot better this year. Sharks miss playing the Canes this year, remember they beat us by plenty last year. We play the Blues in Durbs this year. Though the Sharks have had the wood over them for many, many years now. Think we have beaten them every year since 2006. They will play better as the tourney goes now that they have GH helping them I think.
