I must say, I've lost quite a bit of interest in rugby over the last few years but I always watch the Boks. It's been a rough last 12 years for us since we won the 2007 World Cup. We haven't won the Rugby Championships since its inception in 2012, largely due to the...

I can tell you unequivocally that it’s not their love for the beautiful game! Jeez, this whole FIFA thing just stinks, doesn’t it? I guess it was just a question of time before the authorities had enough evidence to pounce. The aftermath of last week’s high level...

Surely AB De Villiers is tired of carrying the Proteas?

Jeez, Tuesday’s Cricket World Cup semi-final was a roller coaster ride! When Brendon McCullum was smacking us to all parts of the ground, I really thought the game was up. But, to our credit we rallied hard and fought tooth and nail until the very end. It just wasn’t...

The toothless Bok fan who stole the show

I was lucky enough to go to the game at Ellis Park on Saturday and it was a helluva spectacle, wasn't it? Great 1st half by the Boks, New Zealand rallied back like true champions and then a last minute penalty by Lambie. But, it was the toothless Bok fan two seats in...
