Rugby-TalkThis is Published Article 8 002 on Rugby-Talk as we silently went over the magical 8 000 mark with the Stormers Locks Article earlier today!

On top of it, it is 1 January 2014, the start of a brand new year, which promises so much.

Here’s to a HAPPY and PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR to all the readers, subscribers, contributors, authors and webmasters of Rugby-Talk!


Happy New Year 2014

May all your wishes come true, may your new year resolutions remain firm and may the beautiful game of Rugby Union accross the globe grow, prosper and provide lots of enjoyment!

May 2014 be a year where match officials are better and facilitate rugby much better than in 2013 (which was quite a poor refereeing and match official year). May referees facilitate games, not control or influence rugby game outcomes.

Kind regards,


Rudi Geldenhuys

    What is in stock for you for 2014?

    For us it started with a great fondu lunch and a lazy blue sky day….

    We have so many plans for 2014 and if they come off or most of them come off, it could only be a great year.

    Happy, happy folks, have a good one!

    We’ve had 141 new Articles in December 2013 on Rugby-Talk and already 4 today – 1 January 2014.

    That equates to 4.55 new Articles per day in December, Sundays and Holidays included!

    I think we’ve done a fine job in the Southern Hemisphere off-season, here on Rugby-Talk, so far… and so it will continue.

    The content remains fresh and bubly, bodes well for 2014!

    I am not one for Christmas and New Year. It really does not matter if anyone wish me luck or give me presents. I appreciate a all year friend , like the one we became here on RT. So today was a great working day and the tille rang.
    What happens to our respective teams will only depend on how they outsmart the other teams. So i wish a great , smart rugby season, and may the smartest team win.
    I wish you all good rugby season, mine will be great if we stay competitive and we outsmart a few other teams.

    Hello BlommieBul!

    Wel, op ‘n persoonlike noot, ek wens jou toe ‘n gesonde, amper stresslose en voorspoedige jaar… en natuurlik ‘n besondere rugbyjaar, tussen goeie rugbyvriende!

    Considering that we’ve had 8 002 Articles published here on Rugby-Talk, in just over 52.6 months… it means we’ve had an average of 152 articles per month.

    Not too shabby, Nige!

    My komper se skerm gaan net swart, dan kry ek die boodskap

    Power saving mode

    Ek moet heeltemal restart om enigiets te kan sien.
    Ek het nou die skerm (LG Flatron E2360) direk by die Battery backup ingeplug, dink jy dit sal help?
