If there’s anyone that will not have gone gently into that good night – it’s Jonah Lomu. In fact, I reckon he probably made a few big fend-offs and surprisingly agile side-steps on the way… RIP big man!
Courtesy of the Sports Bible on Facebook… the most embarrassing haka ever… Crikey, if you ever want to NOT be intimidated by the All Blacks, just fired up this baby on your iPhone before kickoff, and you’ll be good to… Continue Reading
Is this the best haka of all time? It has everything… obscure location, simultaneous performances, confrontations, bad haircuts, mullets, condoning commentary… It starts off slow, but ends with a brawl. Could want anything more?

So the Springboks have potentially finally uncovered the flyhalf they have been looking for for decades: A big, powerful number 10, with great distribution skills, a monster boot, a line breaker and most importantly: a 10 who eats All Blacks… Continue Reading
Last night I had a dream that Heyneke Meyer selected Kobus Wiese to play for the Boks in next year’s World Cup.
If you think the All Black’s loss or the Pumas first victory in the Rugby Championship was the most shocking thing to happen this weekend…think again! This tackle during a recent University match in Northern England might just be the… Continue Reading
Jannie du Plessis hasn’t retired yet, but he has left quite a legacy in SA rugby. His front row partnership with Bismarck is one of the great Springbok sibling contributions. But it isn’t just his caps, he has pioneered the… Continue Reading
It’s almost the start of the tournament formerly known as the TriNations and that old familiar Springbok feeling of “don’t get your hopes up” is sweeping the fan base. How will they break hearts again this year? – steam roll… Continue Reading
We all know the career span of a professional rugby player is pretty limited, so it’s always a good idea to plan for the future. So hats off (or should I say jock-straps off?) to Aussie player Berrick Barnes who… Continue Reading
The Stormers suck (yes, tough start to the year, tough break on injuries, but still…) The Bulls just quite aren’t that menacing bully team you love to hate (have you seen their flyhalf?) The Sharks are South Africa’s best hope… Continue Reading
Thank you Brian O’Driscoll. We will miss you. Probably the best way a legend can leave the game.
One tries really hard to make fun of the Bulls. But then they do such a good job it for themselves, I sometimes wonder, why bother parodying them at all? Aren’t they just the biggest parody themselves? I’m still basking… Continue Reading
If England takes nothing else from Saturday’s defeat against the All Blacks, they can rest assured that they had better hair on the day. One player in particular stood head and shoulders above the rest with a stirringly impressive display… Continue Reading
Our reporter on the ground in the UK this week has uncovered that far from the gentle harmonious image portrayed on most mainstream media sites, the Springbok camp is in fact rife with infighting and competitive squabbling ahead of the… Continue Reading
A few years ago there was an episode of South Park that featured Mickey Mouse as a brutal dictator of the Disney empire. While Mickey presented a smiling, cuddly personality to the public, behind the scenes he ruled with an… Continue Reading
All the talk this week has been about Sonny Bill Williams. Not just the will or her won’t he have a future representing the All Blacks again, but rather his poor fashion choices. While other blogs have been happy to… Continue Reading
News of Jake White’s resignation from coaching the Brumbies has hit Australian papers and blogs today. What could possess a man who was poised to inherit the Wallaby coaching position to burn his bridges down under? He issued a strange… Continue Reading
The IRB reveals the persuasive photo evidence that cleared Du Plessis of his red card. Not sure who the original poster was here.
It seems no one is safe from the antics of Manu ‘Ferry jumper’ Tuilagi… including the Great British Prime Minister! Tuilagi’s general pissing into the wind attitude towards life was further demonstrated at a recent photo op at Downing Street,… Continue Reading
Those of you who are bloggers or are in the tech space may know that WordPress and Google give you reports telling you what people are typing in the search bar on your site. I will say this: Whoever typed… Continue Reading
Saturday is pretty much as good as it gets for a rugby fan. A rising South African side, buoyed by a vicious assault of the Wallabies, taking on the mighty All Blacks in New Zealand. If you’re not up for… Continue Reading
Who doesn’t like a good old fashioned villain to passionately hate and shout abuse at from the safety of the living-room armchair? Just ask the inhabitants of New Zealand. According to a recent national survey, the third most popular hobby… Continue Reading
Who is the better scrumhalf? If anybody hasn’t been paying attention to Springbok rugby in the last few years, we thought we’d line them up, by the stats. You decide for yourself who should the Bok starting scrumhalf be?… Continue Reading
Things aren’t going well down under. A statement most of us don’t want to hear from our doctor, but one that also applies to the state of Australian sport at the moment. Not only have the English retained the ashes,… Continue Reading
No one cares. Let’s get to the real rugby. Please Supersport and all print newspapers stop trying to make me care. It’s embarrassing – like the awkward guy at the pub trying to get the ladies attention.
In offices and pubs around the country, South African rugby fans are sharply divided into two camps. On one hand, we have the dreamers, the romantics, the hopeful misfits. They can be heard consoling the cynics with phrases like: “Yes,… Continue Reading
What me, worry? What me, turn down three kickable shots at goal in a knock-out semi-final when we’re leading by one point and I have a bankable points machine like Morne Steyn in the team? Derrrrp.
Best “night on the town” incident: Kurtley Beale and Cooper Vuna displayed the famous Australian trait of being able to hold their drink well and managed to get themselves sent home from the Rebels tour of South Africa for boozing… Continue Reading
As part of the upcoming international season in the Southern Hemisphere, we’ll be doing a bit of a lifestyle segment on some international players. We thought we’d start off by showing the softer side of one of the Bok squad… Continue Reading
