    Springboks

    Congratulations to our junior Boks for winning the Junior World Rugby title. South Africa is proud of you!

    After losing their 1st game to Ireland they showed character and came through after a hard fought game against the All Blacks. Its a long time since I've seen such passion in a team. Well done boys!

    Now for the senior Boks to achieve a whitewash against England. Moer hulle Bokke!

    Looks like our Bokke still need to learn how to play in the rain.

    At least it was a draw
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Really bad weekend for England.

    Their rugby juniors lost to the Baby Boks earlier in the week. Their rugby team drew with the Bokke but lost the series 2-0. Their soccer team failed again by losing to Italy.

    better to be a SAFFIE (South African) today.

    Strange that hey ......................... I cannot help but think how much the bookies must have had a say in this ..............
    Sorry ........ but stopped watching cricket long time ago ...... about the same time that Hansie was caught, then the cricket bosses were caught with their hands in the till, then that indian lady that also pleaded ignorance, then ................. I dont think this site would have enough bandwidth to name all the corruption going on in cricket !!

    Bob needed some exposure. He is the "actual coach" for zim. The proteas was scared they would not be allowed to leave the country. It was a win and stay or loose and go situation. Well that is what it looked like.

    The Boks, well when are they eventually going to remove the NAMES and put in some guys that actually want to play and to stop playing guys out of position.

    Formula 1 too?

    I reckon this has been an absolutely awesome year for Formula 1 so far. I had goosebumps watching Alonso, Hakkinen and Schumi on the podium together - the stuff of legends

    Agree 100% with you Dave. This has been one of the closest seasons ever up untill this point. 12 cars within ,5 of a second to another. Every driver can win from 1 - 12. Make the wrong pit stop timing and you slip and slide in the last laps. Get the timing right and you are 3 seconds faster in the last laps. The amount of overtaking is simply brilliant.
