Sharks vs Bulls Archive

Four more Super Rugby adventures this Saturday followed by the UEFA Champions League final! Sporting daaays, don’t let them pass you by. Sporting days A great day for a braai. Sporting days Sporting daaaaaays. Music and lyrics by rennton. Two quality mouth-watering, beer guzzling, smash them in their faces, SA derby games coming your way, not to mention what should be a cracker at Newlands, oh ja and the Force vs the Highlanders. Questions that spring to mind: Can the Kings upset the rugby cart with an upset over the Cheetahs? Can the Sharks rekindle the end of season form from last year and go on a winning run to sneak into the play-offs? Can you use ‘sporting days’ to describe a day of watching sport? Let’s wade in and see what we can see. I can’t promise accurate answers here except for the last question, where the answer is: No, but it sort of rhymes with ‘glory’. Super Rugby round 15, Saturday 25th May 2013 Force vs Highlanders My interest level in this game is about as low as the level of rugga expected. See what I did there, you’re welcome. The Highlanders should beat the Force but they [&hellip

Two more rounds before the play-offs and still nine teams in with a shout of qualifying for the top six. Exciting times ahead and no mistake. Last week the Chiefs, Hurricanes and Bulls (at least for the first 60mins) were the most impressive sides on display. The Stormers did not have a great game but did enough to secure the win over the Lions and the Reds kept their play-off chances alive with a solid win over the Rebels. The big surprise of the round was the Crusaders going down to the Hurricanes at home, which not only makes it impossible for them to top the Kiwi conference but heaps the pressure on as they now cannot afford to lose another game. It must be said that the Hurricanes were a wee bit assisted by some sketchy officiating by the New Zealand ref of the year 2011, Bryce douchebag Lawrence. Slow clap Bryce, way to not improve. The Hurricanes now find themselves in a three-way tie at 6th on the log but are smiling as they have a bye this week. When asked for comment, captain Conrad Smith had this to say “It’s okay, if it’s in a three-way”. Hard [&hellip

Not too much in the way of quality match ups Saturday morning but a beeeg one primed, seasoned and marinated ready at 7:10pm on Saturday night. Sharks vs Bulls. Taste it, put it in your mouth… Delicious. I went searching for an image that would sum up the intense physical, psychological and emotional battle that will ensue on Saturday and then I found this picture and forgot what I was… Are these actual Sharks supporters? Was the ‘Sharks’ logo photo shopped in? 2 Words… Boobies! You’re welcome. Western Force vs Brumbies Is anyone actually interested in this game? The Brumbies were woeful to the max last week. The Force have just come off a bye. The Giteau vs O’Connor battle could be interesting  and I am sure Matt’s mum will be watching but will anyone else? It’s Aussie rugby with no bearing on the tables, so my advice, sleep in, go get the braai meat for later and do that thing your lady has been asking you to do for while. Venue: nib Stadium, Perth Kick-Off: Sat, 2:05pm Prediction: Force by 5-
