Re: End of Another Aura

It is a shame South Africa didn't turn up to give a better gauge on the level the Rugby Championship teams are currently at. However, even the most optimistic Bok supporter must realize it is unlikely they would have gone unbeaten if they did come. Better Bok teams that the one that won the World C...

Re: SA rugby return to play

The aim with the competition was to prepare players for the RC. After we withdraw the CC was more the real thing. Just to play rugby again is the main thing. We need our players to get back in the groove as 2021 is a massive year for us. TRC and RWC champions up against The British and Irish Lions....

Re: What Scares the Boks...

Whenever I watch the 6 Nations, I always cheer for Ireland, mostly because I think their style of play and their attitudes are similar to South Africa.
