Last week dished up two deep fried quality match ups that could both have gone either way.

Later in the day, the Sharks were given a scare by the Highlanders and trailed at half time but managed to use their scrum dominance to good effect, eventually winning by

Ahh knock out rugby, a time where Super Rugby sides play with a Test Rugby influence, with tight defense and mistake minimization at a premium. Mistake minimization? Is that a phrase? I am gonna leave it in, sounds professional
There are four games on Saturday, the last one being a vital Stormers vs Sharks situash and by the end of it we will finally know who our top 6 are. What do I reckon the final standings will be? You ask
Yes, it has finally arrived… the last round. What?! No ways, make mine a triple Johnny Walker Black!
Three cracking more games this Saturday and one on Sunday for good measure. It looks like we are in for a rainy weekend here in the Cape, perfect weather for loads of rugby, not to mention Wimbledon and the FIFA SWC 2014. Set weekend activity level to: Couch. Things are heating up in Brazil and no mistake. I am not usually a big soccer fan but have been enjoying watching the World Cup, although the diving and theatrics are massively irritating. Thankfully the supporters go a fair way in easing my frustration. Hup Holland!
Two rounds left before the play-offs. Two rounds to make or break a season. Two rounds to make sure of a spot in the play-offs. Two rounds to secure a home semi-final or if you are the Cheetahs, two rounds to try to not finish last.
Shoooweeee that was a close one. Way to knock years off my life guys, sheesh kebabs with stress sauce! I am of course referring to the 1 point win over Wales achieved at the death after a penalty try. It was one of the best performances by a Welsh side for a long time and truth be told they probably deserved the win more than the Springboks did
Is it just me or does it feel like Super Rugby was aaages ago? I have been so wrapped up in the June Internationals that I all but forgot that we have three rounds of regular games before the play-offs. Aww yis!
That’ll do Willie, that’ll do. Before Saturday’s Springboks vs Wales Test, there were a few murmurings of how the Welsh may actually run the Springboks close. A few rugby websites even suggested that Wales had their best chance of breaking their losing streak against the Bokke in SA. Great predictions guys. Julius Caesar thumbs down
Interesting times last weekend and no mistake. England’s so called second string team came very close to upsetting the All Blacks in Eden Park, Australia dick punched France in their faces in Brisbane, Ireland caused an upset by winning in Argentina for the first time everrrr and the Springboks dispatched the World XV comfortably in Newlands after a toiter than expected first half
