I enjoy our local rugby during this covid pandemic so much. There were too much rugby before. Await the B+I Lions tour with eager. Springboks will be an unknown as they haven't played for 20 months! While they used to play some countries twice a year. Back to tours the best. Like Old School Rugby. The Currie Cup with Springboks playing. The strength vs strength. The titanic 2 pointer win of the Cheetahs over the Bulls last night. The tight defence.
The overseas stars bought and brought back by Ruperts billions. Rupert & Rothchilds billions giving Jake White the blanko cheque. To see a Cheetah backline again with 2 Springboks and a blitzbok against the best money can buy and take it. The titanic struggle upfront by not so conditioned professional teams as yet but rather sleepwalking out of covid.
It's like those half amateur days again. Love it!

Only dissapointment is the B+I Lions not playing the sa Lions.
I feel they could have included 2 more games perhaps a warmup against a Varsity Cup xv and perhaps a sa country centred around Griquas in Kimberley but coached by one of sa's best coaches Jimmy Stonehouse

You’re drunk if you think the B&I Lions are playing anyone in 2021.

Towny would like to see some old school Saffa rugger, but the buggers are hiding behind their sofas rather then face Kiwi and Aussie firepower :nod:

No you won’t. You have cost the other unions money. Including your own. Once the Likns pull out of next year. The SARU will probably be facing bankruptcy.

Wonder which team will make the expanded 8 team Currie Cup next year?
the team must win the pre qualifier of 14 teams
Leopards with a Varsity Cup team as base a strong contender

It can be from Sharks xv, Bulls xv, Lions xv, Cheetahs xv and Western Province. These are the top dog's B Teams that plays in the Rugby Challenge. They'l fight it out with the rest

Its better for the players safety. Lions 4 players early the week and now 2 coaching and assistant staff. They can reschedule it for a midweek later in the competition.

With a Bulls xv etc. if such a team makes the Currie Cup it is a possibility that it can beat the Bulls Currie Cup side. I doubt it will happen though as I think the Leopards will win the pre tournament.
Leopatds have played in the Currie Cup before
They are a better team or uaed to be than the Kings who played internationally
They have a broad base of clubs and a Varsity Cup
They would have done well comparing to the lowest ranking nz/oz/jap teams in super rugby sa used to compete in and will make the Currie Cup stronger comparing to Super Rugby
They are already a pro outfit

What's Great of this Back to Old School Rugby is when last did you see the Stormers rock up with 6 WC Springbok stars and got smacked by 30 points before HT by the Steval Pumas who never before had a chance to play against springbok players due to only the 4 teams allowed in the then Super Rugby and the springboks played in there and no rele/promo or chances to the Pumas in Super Rugby
So you had the Springboks in what became a watered down thing and the likes of the Pumas were never really weighed and therefore not seen by selectors until now.

Do these Saffer teams intend on defending at any stage, or is it three phases and you score?

I think the Stormers and their WC springboks defense which were the best in the world became a bit rusted during covid.
Considering they had one of the best coaches in SA up against them that can decipher defensive patterns like a cup of coffee in the mornings.
Jimmy Stonehouse of the Steval Pumas one of the best and the recognition wouldn't have been there if he hadn't play against springboks
His attacking specially in midfield and his loosetrio specially his nr8 were much better than the opposition

An eye opener for Rassie and Jaque (new Springbok coach) on how Jimmy (Puma coach) shred defenses
They did defend like demons second half to their credit and won the game at final whistle after a debatable forward pass

Would never be like this if the Springboks weren't playing

The game lived up to those old tests between the two. Bulls dominated upfront and Jake White's coaching the diffs. Would love to see this Bulls vs. B + I Lions as i think Jake is building a monster team.
