So who in Stormer’s management paid for Bryan Habana’s moved to the Cape? The Bulls must be laughing all the way to the bank. How could a man capable of moments like this:
be turned into the old circus donkey that we’ve got down in the Cape now? I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sure I haven’t seen Habana do anything remotely resembling that try since he got his new jersey. Its a pretty sad indictment on the conditioning programming at the Stormers and WP that you can see Habana’s loss of pace visibly deteriorate over his career down here. If I read one more tweet from the Stormers camp, or one more article from the biased Cape press about how Habana has “regained his pace in training” and is capable of running the 100m 0.4 seconds faster than Usain Bolt, I’ll gag.
Did the moment that Habana put on his Stormer’s jersey coincide with the moment he lost his pace? He seems still capable of finishing tries, as any good finisher would – a bit like Danie Gerber at the end of his career. Only Habana seems slower than Gerber on crutches.
In Stormer’s land we pay top dollar for a Ferrari, but get an old Daihatsu. Ouch.
