    Hi GBS, well we can still live in hope that our Blue Bulls put up a good performance and beat WP, quite a lot of youth in our backline and some speedsters in theirs so hopefully the forwards will deliver good quick ball for the backs to run with and you will see a good game, especially as conditions should be good for running rugby.

    Puma’s were brilliant last night. Love the way they play. Simple. Take ball into contact to draw defenders, get it out quickly while defense trying to re-organise and send wide. Coaching staff doing great job.
    Let’s hope Bulls come to party this afternoon. They haven’t had a game yet where their play has gelled, new flyhalf (Blommetjies big loss, Potgieter not so big), JJ at center as our senior player also a concern. What has happened to Dewald Potgieter for captaincy? Province due for day off (I’m optimistic) and Bulls to win.

    Hi nortierd, ja seen that about the collaboration with the Rhino group, great stuff for a good cause. Am guessing though that the gate takings will be going to the charity and not everything that is earned at Loftus. So this means still a lot of money for the Blue Bulls from you lot for beers and boerewors rolls, would have said ice cream too but probably going to be too chilly for that, not to mention all the money you guys will be spending in the supporters gear shop, stocking up on Blue Bulls apparrel to wear when you think no one is looking, I can just see it now, lang toue WP mense by daai shop, just be patient you will get what you are looking for I let them know to bring in extra stock especially for you guys. Hope you spend the rest of the day wisely until you go to the stadium – go and get lots more of your WP okes to join you there Happy-Grin

    Not seen young flyhalf Josh Stander yet, how do you rate his abilities? It will be William Small Smith and not JJ there today, sounds like some kind of rotation, so hopefully he will click quickly with Odendaal, another really young player. Dewald got injured not long after coming back for Super rugby, don’t know if he is still injured or whether he was only coming back for Super rugby.
