With the disappointing South African Tri-Nations campaign over, it is great to be able to watch some quality rugby, without wanting to throw beers, remotes, small children at the TV. The Currie Cup has proven once again that we have immense talent and depth in this country. There has been talk of resting as many as 13 of the contracted Springboks for the end of year tour and if this proves to be true, it will be one of the better moves by the Bok management for a long time. Players like Smit, Matfield, Steyn, Spies, Fourie, Burger, Gurthro, Olivier and Habana will definitely benefit from an extended break and hopefully come back next season refreshed and ready for the World Cup. So with the EOYT fast approaching, have a gander at the team we feel could do us proud and even sneak a grand slam win. This team is chosen mostly on Currie Cup form and assuming that the incumbents are all rested. 15. Gio Aplon – Made an immediate impact when coming on as a replacement in the last few Tri-Nations games and full of confidence after an impressive year. Small but lightning, Speedy Gonzales quick and solid [&hellip

Let’s face it, the array of cosmetic products aimed at your average bloke borders on fit inducing. Choices, choices, choices… do you scrub up, scrub down and what the firetruck essence are you supposed to musk up with? Odeon is still some way from marketing a liquid soap version of Sex Panther, in fact the recent shun on using real panther bits in their products means we could be facing a future without the guaranteed 60% strike rate Sex Panther delivers… bleak I know. As evidenced by the popularity of Old Spice’s recent viral campaign, it’s clear guys want to smell like fighter jets and punching, not like soap or a vase of daffodils. Old Spice did a good job of getting men to man the firetruck up, but it was only the first step in the right direction, what we need is a giant leap, what we need is Sueeve! Here at Sueeve, we understand that showering can be one of the most boring, shame and confusion-filled parts of your day and we’ve made it our mission to fix that! If the mere sight of a loofah sends you into a gender-confusion-driven, psychotic rage, you need the Shower Hammer! [&hellip

Today is the last day of voting at the 2010 SA Blog Awards, and it’s probably about time some Bloggers started penning their acceptance speeches. I hope our fixation with Hollywood and events like the Oscars or MTV Music Awards taints at least a few of the winners’ words… I don’t expect to see a complete melt down, but I do hope to see unbridled, unhinged, tiger-out-of-the-cage moments as illustrated by Ohio’s Phil Davison. [Thanks TCD] Never apologise for your tone. Ever! That’s the first rule you learn in your masters degree in communication. Afterwards Phil told PBS “I spoke my mind, if I had to give it again, I would give it again.” Lets hope he does

One year until next year’s World Cup. Yess!!! Will the Southern Hemisphere teams dominate? If this year’s Tri-Nations is anything to go by, then at least two of them will. The Bokke have been decidedly average this year. The refusal to admit that anything is wrong by the management team is perhaps more worrying than anything else. Not to mention strange team selections and the seeming inability to properly use the replacements bench. Things are not looking good but there is still time. The Aussies finally managed to win on the Highveld and looked sublime for periods of their games this year. Massive brain farts and the failure to close out games hampered their season but with experienced players coming back into the team, the Aussies may well be one of the favourites in New Zealand next September. The All Blacks are well and truly on top of the rugby world at the moment. Their only fault seemingly is that they may be peaking too early but to quote my Gran “I would rather be winning than losing”. Worryingly it looks like they have learnt to win matches regardless of venue, crowds or the fact that they have been trailing [&hellip

Making rednecks proud, George Lewis can’t resist the opportunity to flex his intellect and foggot [sic] spotting prowess by catapulting astute observations at David Thorne….is that the school bell I hear ringing?! 27b/6′s latest post: Sometimes people email me to tell me how their day is going, other times they email me to tell me that I am a dickhead and my website is stupid which I am already aware of due to many preceding emails stating the same thing. I don’t harbor behind a fake name and my email address is clearly listed so it is a simple process for people like George to express their opinion to me but as I never initiate an email correspondence, simply reply, I am not always sure why they bother. If I was hetroflexible, I am pretty sure I would already be aware of the fact and if I’m not, stating that I am is in error so either way it is a pointless exercise. I don’t email random people telling them that they have a pet cat named Charles on the off chance they do and are not aware of it. I have read your website and it is obviously that [&hellip
