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!
The Springboks Archive
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
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
Ahh the June Internationals, a chance for the Northern Hemisphere teams to come to the South to be reminded once again how inferior they are at Test rugby. Oooooh burn. Harsh but true man, harsh but true
So here we are, the last international Springbok game of the year and still all this beer to be drunk. Who would have thought a case of beer per game would be too much? Hind sight, eh
Not bad. Not great but not bad. A solid start for the Springboks on their Northern Hemisphere End of Year Tour and yet another failure by Warren Gatland’s Wales to beat a Southern Hemisphere side. His record is now a fairly miserable 22 losses out of 23… Fail
Welcome back fellow Bowl Philosophers! It has been too far too long. How have you been? How is work treating you? I am good and yes that rash has cleared up, thanks for asking. What are my thoughts on the Springbok side selected for the Cardiff game, you ask… I will get to that in two shakes of a lamb’s tail but first, a small review of what has happened since my last post
So after being denied what should have been an absolute classic test between the two best sides in world rugby (due to previously discussed refereeing FiretrUCK ups ‘whoopsies’) we now have a re-match and what should be the test of the year, this time at Ellis Park
Ahh the home games. Back in the Mzansi hood and no mistake. Let’s all sit back and enjoy the comforts of this great land, (hopefully) clear skies and Cape hospitality. Gatsbys and beers, get in my face! This Saturday the Springboks take on the Wallabies at Newlands and I am going! Aww yis!
