Hallo all rugby addicts! It’s good to see the blogging intensifying, as prep for the 2012 Super 15 has started in earnest at all the franchises. Rassie’s antics has stolen my thunder momentarily, but I’M BACK!
Anyway, back to my series of articles on contenders for the Cheetahs 2012 Super squad. Tall Timber is next. An area where the Cheetahs have not had dominance since David de Villiers’ departure. We have had some good locks, guys like Braam Els, Flippie, Rory Duncan, and Barend Pieterse, but we need some staunch players to really get the powerful Cheetahs scrum to become destroyers!
There will be no let-up for Super Rugby’s newest team, as the Rebels confirmed the details of their off-season European tour in August.
The Rebels – who finished last in their debut season in Super Rugby – will play three matches in a week-long tour of England and Ireland that will kick-start the club’s preparations for the 2012 Super Rugby season.
