Well, I am all alone here in Warmbad, lone Free State supporter in Bulls' paradise.
I loved visiting grandparents in Warmbad as a youngster. :thumbup:

24 years ago...we might even have crossed paths. My grandparents and uncle were "the tennis people" in town for years back then.

Chilli has done a great job of waving the flag for the Cheetahs. I admire his fortitude :thumbup:

Thanks for that. You got Fred Zeilnga from us, how's that working out?

Besides, it's the Stomers who have been raiding your ranks. Although it sounds like they did you a favour getting rid of Rhule.

Not only can I see them winning, the bookies have it even money and they are very good at rugby odds. God bless the days when they didn´t have a clue and you could get some inside info :x

Munster put us to the sword last time 51/18. I hope we can avenge the utter humiliation of that game but even with a weaker squad it will be stupid for us to underestimate them.

With a Friday game this week and a Sunday kick off next week we have a 9 day turnaround, so even allowing for a day of travel tomorrow, and a family day for the players on Sunday, there is a good long recovery period , assuming of course no injuries :uhoh: .

Can’t see us winning this though.

:lol: perhaps you should keep things in your head.

So besides the players that you are falsely trying to claim credit for, almost all of those players made their name at the Sharks.

They left that embarrassment of a union and joined a professional one, and have gone on to have successful careers because of that move.

It's not poaching, this isn't schoolboy rugby. These are professional rugby players making ration decisions on their own.

Stop playing the victim. The Cheetahs are a joke of a union and that's why they were booted from Super Rugby. How embarrassing.

All of those except Bismarck made name playing for the Free State. There is a host of others ... Banana Boys are perennials poachers, ever was. Remember Piet Strydom, Gawie Visagie, De Wet Ras ?

Should be a cracker of a game, the starting Munster midfield is not going to get much quality ball out to our wingers but we have a bench full of impact and if we're in touching distance with 20 to go I think we're in a with a good shout of winning.

Primary objective- no injuries for next week! For all the media talk about the poor timing of the SA tour in advance of next week the lads look like they're having a ball based on Twitter and Instagram and enjoying the sunshine together is far preferable to getting pissed on for a fortnight in Limerick.

You mean except Bismark, Honiball and Andre Joubert? Honiball never even played for Free State, FFS.

As for those names, no I don't remember them as I'm not 80 ;)

Stop playing the victim. Ever stop to ask why the Cheetahs have such a high turnover of players which continues to this day?

I'm particularly looking forward to Zebo coming into the line and targeting the 10 channel, then pulling out fistfuls of French monopoly money and chucking it at Goosen as he swerves him.

:lol:
Early in his career, he was also a star for Ammosal Rugby Club and Griquas, representing them 39 times from 1977 to 1980.

He then moved to Durban where he played for Durban Collegians and Natal. Visagie represented Natal in 42 matches from 1981 to 1985.
