Alberts really impressed me with his work rate throughout the tournament, he definitely earned his salary.

Bosch was a disappointment to me. He is turning into a two trick pony. Long kicks at poles and plenty of distance with his long range kicks but the rest of his game has not developed and in some ways has gone backwards. I like Kriel the Bulls no 15, he is a youngster with plenty of potential.

Other good news is that the Varsity Cup and Shield competitions are on to be played in a bio bubble format of 3 to 4 bubbles between 3 April and end May, probably at Tukkies in Pta. The Young Guns comp has been cancelled for financial and other reasons. With Covid protocols and the potential for infections the teams may have to tap into the younger pool of talent anyway. I miss club and schools rugby and at least this is a start, although I would love to be watching from the side of the field.....

u20 WC had been cancelled twice already. This is where the Varsity Cup fill a void. Players need that step in between school and senior rugby otherwise a vaccuum Many WC boks played in the winning u20 WC
a Few Cc stars of this year such as Elrigh Louw also played u20 WC. Now at least youngsters can come to the fore in the Varsity Cup.

SA Rugby announced the kick-off of the 2021 season with a number of preparation fixtures for eight provincial teams as national planning focuses on entry to the international Rainbow Cup and the Springboks’ forthcoming Test season, starting with the series against the British & Irish Lions.

The series of encounters have been specifically designed by the Rugby Department of SA Rugby and the competing unions to meet teams’ high performance needs against the landscape of the pandemic and to prepare them for the coming season.

One significant change is that teams will play on a ten-day cycle (rather than each week) to manage COVID testing protocols.

The eight teams – the EP Elephants join the seven sides that competed in Super Rugby Unlocked and the Currie Cup from October last year – have been split into two groups and will play cross-pool matches between 27 February and 27 March, ensuring four encounters for every side.

Pool A will consist of the Bulls, Lions, Griquas and Cheetahs, and they will play the four sides in Pool B, namely the Sharks, Stormers, Pumas and Eastern Province Elephants.

Venues and kick-off times must still be confirmed, but the four matches in the opening round will see the Bulls host the EP Elephants, the Lions take on the Pumas, the Sharks squaring off against Griquas, and Stormers up against the Cheetahs.

“It’s imperative that we get the new season underway as soon as possible as we have a big year ahead, with preparing our players for the British & Irish Lions a top priority, but also providing opportunities for all teams to get match fit with an eye on entry into European competitions, and our planned local season,” said Rassie Erasmus, Director of Rugby.

“These matches will provide our top players with further opportunities to test themselves against the best in South Africa, while our match officials will also get some valuable game-time under the belt.”

Preparation series fixtures (home teams named first, kick-off times and venues to be confirmed):

Saturday 27 February
Bulls v EP Elephants
Lions v Pumas

Sunday 28 February
Sharks v Griquas
Stormers v Cheetahs

Tuesday 9 March
Cheetahs v Sharks
Griquas v Stormers

Wednesday 10 March
Pumas v Bulls
Elephants v Lions

Friday 19 March
Bulls v Stormers
Lions v Sharks

Saturday 20 March
Pumas v Cheetahs
EP Elephants v Griquas

Saturday 27 March
Cheetahs v EP Elephants
Griquas v Pumas
Sharks v Bulls
Stormers v Lions

Former SA Schools captain Muzi Manyike found dead

CAPE TOWN – Former SA Schools captain Muzilikazi Manyike, who has been missing since late last year, has ended in tragedy after his body was identified by family at the Ga-Rankuwa police station.

The 20-year-ol Manyike disappeared last year, which resulted in his ommission from the Lions successful Under-21 campaign.

According to Sport24, a family spokesperson confirmed Manyike’s body had been identified, but that a cause of death was still not known at this stage.

Manyike, who was set to join the national sevens academy in January, was reportedly found on the R101 near Hammanskraal on 20 November, two days after he was last seen on CCTV footage in Pretoria North.
https://www.iol.co.za/sport/rugby/forme ... 61b7e662ab
Manyike was the head boy of the prestigious Jeppe High School for Boys in 2018.

He appeared in Craven week twice and also represented the SA national U17 and U18 sevens team.

After SA Rugby introduced a number of innovations to speed up play, we list everything you need to know.
  • The first implemented change is a 10-day turnaround between matches to ensure better prepared teams and conditioned players. This was done with Covid-19 testing protocols taken into consideration
  • SA Rugby director of rugby Rassie Erasmus said teams and referees have also been asked to speed up play when it comes to taking lineouts, completing scrums and lining up kicks at goal, all of which lagged in comparison to international standards.
  • Teams have been urged to make quicker decisions when awarded penalties, and kickers must ensure they take their kicks within the allotted 60 seconds (for penalty goals) and 90 seconds (for conversions). A countdown clock is to be introduced as part of the broadcast to ensure compliance for penalty and conversion kicks at goal
  • Furthermore, restart kicks have to be taken in less than 30 seconds from either the 22-metre or halfway lines
  • At scrum time, the two packs of forwards must be formed and ready for the ‘crouch’ call within 30 seconds after the referee has given the mark, while referees will be able to stop the clock if they feel too much time is taken up with reset scrums
  • Apart from the on-field changes, SuperSport will be using a couple of broadcast innovations to enhance the viewer’s experience of these encounters, and show a rare perspective into team tactics
  • These include sideline commentary by players, audio comments from the coaches’ box, and new on-screen visual references.

    Agree on SA Young gun Simelane. Would have liked to see as one of the finalists their new nr10 Tiaan S.
    SA Coach agree on Jake. Would have liked if they added Jimmy Stonehouse as one ofcthe finalists in recognition of him building the Pumas from nowhere into one of the top teams
