    Not good thst our top 2 scrumhalves are out injured and third one only coming back fro injury this week, and both no 8s out as well, will we see Dewald Potgieter shifted to 8 think he cou,d do a good job there but as ge is on his way out maybe should give Jean Cook a try there.

    When heard about the injuries to Vermaak and Hougaard was really concerned for how we will manage rsst of Super 1y and thought that Bulls should ask Glasgow to see about getting Matawalu in on short term loan, what an amazing player he was for them and he will still be match fit having been on tour with Fiji, not sure when the new season gets going again with competetive games as thry have not long started with preseason training but think we could get at least a month out of Matawalu if they went that route, BUT that was more than a week ago the two pulled up injured so probably too late now to go down this route.

    I know it was out of the box thinking but man you should see Matawalu play he is such a livewire that would add value any time let alone now with this crises, this is the time of the season for big time players not youngsters still finding their way if we are serious about winning the title maybe you should try and have a word at Loftus about this player he is a gem! Must get off to bed was a busy tiring weekend cheers vir eers.
