Need a game to amuse kids at a party? Need a replacement for a Supersport rugby studio guest when one of the current “analysts” is unavailable?
Write the following phrases on separate pieces of paper, put in a tin and shake up, read out in whichever order you drew them and “hey Presto” you’ve just pulled off a DSTV Supersport Rugby broadcast – with the same quality you’ve come to expect from years of abuse at the hands of Naas Botha and co.
- “This one will be decided up front”
- “I think they just didn’t want it enough”
- “It was a game of two halves”
- “He just took his eyes off the ball there when he dropped it”
- “It’s all about who wants it the most”
- “No one works harder in training than [insert name of player who is woefully out of form]”
- “electricifying pace”/”the atmosphere is electric”
- “are these guys even practising anything in training” (reserved for where one of the participants is pretending to be Nick Mallett”
- “Whatever the coach said at half time has worked”
- “He’s been a great servant of the game”
