Who of you remember the Player 23 Campaign of a few years ago, where supporters were asked or even convinced that we were Player 23, as supporters.
If you remember the campaign, you will also remember old Jan… well this is what it’s all about, we as the more ardent supporters of rugby in South Africa and around the globe always complain that we want to feel envolved in the game, mean something to the game of rugby as a whole, and have fun in the process.
With all the focus the start of the Rugby Championship this weekend, not much thought has been given to another small matter starting today. Cricket. If SA draw or win at Lords they go to No.1 spot in the world. But England, as we all know by now are in turmoil over the KP issue. So on the eve of the match, a lighter look at the KP issue.
Well whoever said rugby was boring. In one fell swoop, the Sharks were left washed up on some beach on the Jukskei, the Bulls were humbled at home, Heyneke Meyer attempts to fark with our heads and Keo is up for a bit of sex and coke. And that is all before the Queen steps onto her barge!
The new pink garb is selling like hot cakes in Pretoria at the moment in preparation for next weeks sellout match against the Stormers. Some of the supporters have even been spotted trying out the new strip for size.
A while back I offered to manage a selection competition where we at Rugby-Talk could show our knowledge of SA rugby and who can read Heyneke Meyer’s mind the best. Bok Barometer was the driving force in this idea. The first Test is on the 9th of June, less than 4 weeks away.
Last night Graeme Joffe aired his sportspodcast. I mention this because it has led to a rather acrimonious bitching session and airing of dirty laundry out in the blogosphere. The reason? Yes, you guessed it, it’s that Kings vs Lions thingy again.
Rarely do I find myself doubled over in pain from laughter, but, when I saw this, I wondered what Scrumdown’s house, and in particular, furniture must look like after the trashing it must have received through his frustration. Open the thread to see what I mean.
