Re: 2021 Lions Tour Fixtures

It was a big mistake of cutting the nu. of fixtures. For a start things have changed. The opener the Lions play against Stormers will give them a false indication of where they are. Stormers sounds big and a Lions win will boost their confidence whereas in reality last night Jimmy Stonehouse's Curri...

Re: SA rugby return to play

Pumas 22 - 17 Griquas a bit lucky as Griquas wasted 2 or 3 scoring opportunities. What I observed in the wet is the frontrow power is neutralized and the weight from the locks brings advantage. The Pumas lock and Captain Le Roux Roets is a heavy big man and once the weight moves scrumtime behind the...
