HEYNEKE IS YET TO ANSWER A NUMBER OF PRESSING QUESTIONS

I cannot put my finger on why I’ve avoided writing about the Springboks during this years Rugby Championships. Perhaps it’s because I have felt uninspired by them. Or perhaps, with all due respect to the Pumas, I first wanted to see what they could do against those wankers chaps from Australasia as the true test of any team is how they perform against the Wallabies and most importantly the All Blacks. This weekend’s result was a tough pill to swallow and whilst it would be far easier to lambaste the team, I wouldn’t consider that to be constructive. Alternatively, I feel there are a few questions which Heyneke Meyer has yet to answer and the fact that these questions are still being asked a year outside of the Rugby World Cup is of a far greater concern than losing by a whisker to an average Wallabies team.

A TRIBUTE TO BRYAN HABANA ON THE EVE OF HIS 100TH TEST FOR THE BOKS

Bryan Habana is on the eve of becoming only the 4th South African to play 100 rugby Test matches for his country and in the process truly cement himself as a Springbok great.

There is no denying the brilliance of the man as he epitomizes the saying “form is temporary, class is permanent” and below is a tribute to the man with jet-shoes. Forgive the soundtrack and enjoy the tries.

TOP RUGBY PLAYS FROM THE MONTH OF JUNE

The International window saw a welcome break from Super Rugby as the lads from up North made the trek to their Southern rivals. One Hemisphere in the process of finishing off their season whilst the other raring to get it started. Bless the Northern Hemisphere sides, for they tried their best, yet came up second best. Again. The English put up a decent fight in all but one of their Tests against the AB’s, the Welsh tried their best in both Durban and Nelspruit, the Scots were outclassed and the poor French were simply dreadful. Looking back at the month, some fantastic rugby was played by the three Southern Hemisphere heavyweights and the entertainment which awaits us during this year’s Rugby Championships is mouth-watering. All in all, the three Southern Hemisphere teams outscored their Northern counterparts by 303 points to 143. Check out some of the month’s highlights.
