F%#k (again). Bring out the knives…
The Cape Times is drinking the Bryan Habana Kool-Aid again. No wonder nobody reads papers anymore. What odds on the phrase “big match temperament” being used in the article?
With the Super 15 season rapidly drawing to a close it’s time for us to announce the winner of our inaugural “Big Daddy Rugby-Questionable Grooming” title for the 2011 season. For those of you who missed the original post or if… Continue Reading
The old SA flag waving racists have all packed their bags and moved to Perth. There’s a new racist in town: the pseudo-kiwi at Newlands. These idiots ruining the experience for everyone are not to be confused with real New… Continue Reading
Here at Big Daddy Rugby our girlfriends and wives readers often accuse us of being too cynical and mean-spirited. So we thought we’d cover a feel good story for a change. One of those triumphs of the human spirit/overcoming the odds… Continue Reading
S@&t. Well that was predictable. There goes the weekend…
The regular Super 15 season is over. It’s time to judge the franchises and see who is found wanting… SA Conference Bulls – Fortress Loftus turned into Sandcastle Loftus this year. Losing at home to the Highlanders is a pretty big low. … Continue Reading
Ever tried getting tickets for the Boks at Newlands? Ever tried lining up for U2 tickets in South Africa? Ever thought it was a good idea to watch your rugby team in a Super Rugby playoff game? Then you’ll know… Continue Reading
In an absolute cracker of a knock out match between the Bulls and the Sharks, the Sharks qualified for the post-season of 2011 Super Rugby with a 26-23 away win at Loftus. I reckon the celebrations must have lasted all… Continue Reading
Supersport’s Brenden Nel reported earlier this week that Bryan Habana got the snub from Toulon for asking for an outrageous R21 million contract. Clearly Habana thinks it is still 2007 and that the sun still shines out of his oversized… Continue Reading
With weekend 18(!) of this year’s Super 15 approaching, we thought it was time to update the Big Daddy Rugby drinking game, with a special “Super 15 final week of the group stages” edition. If you’re planning on catching a… Continue Reading
Somewhere deep under the Pacific Ocean Dr Evil Naka Drotske sits in his undersea lair plotting his revenge on the Stormers this weekend. In true South African style, you can bet your bottom R5 coin that the Cheetahs are going… Continue Reading
What a load of bollocks. I want my money back (including beer money).
You know it is bad when even the Kiwi’s are jumping on the bandwagon and complaining about “the Dick” who blew the whistle in the match between the Reds and the Crusaders. Hell – hasn’t any one been paying attention… Continue Reading
What a weekend for South African rugby fans. It’s been a long long time since Saffer Super Rugby franchises played so well against their Antipodean opponents. In the dark days of my college studies, I can still remember several weekends… Continue Reading
Danny Cipriani is looking for the exit on his Melbourne Rebels contract, like a high school kid counting down the days until graduation. Unfortunately for Danny, he has burned a few too many bridges earlier in his past for this… Continue Reading
“That’ll do, pig. That’ll do.” ~ Farmer Hoggett.
Early warning to readers – I haven’t had my customary post Stormers loss “cooling off period” before I wrote this piece. Stuart Dickinson is a name that lives infamy for most South African rugby fans. It’s fair to say he… Continue Reading
The Reds pulled of another impressive victory this season when they beat the Blues 37-31 in the “Durban of Australia”, Brisbane. Major of tip of the hat to you, Reds squad and Reds coaching team. The Bundie will be flowing… Continue Reading
The Kiwi press this week has been reporting that the New Zealand Rugby Union will be providing financial assistance to the Cantebury Rugby Union, home of the Crusaders. While some of us may have thoughts that rush to visions of… Continue Reading
Well that’s it folks. You can plan to have your wedding on June 9 now, because the weekend of the Super 15 final sure as heck ain’t going to be a weekend to celebrate South African rugby. The Stormers’ loss… Continue Reading
There’s two types of South African rugby fan which makes me throw up just a little bit in my mouth, and unfortunately with the arrival of the Crusaders this week, Newlands on Saturday will not be as “Pro-Stormers” as one… Continue Reading
So let’s get this right. The Stormers were top of the South African conference and were unbeaten against fellow South African sides but according to a number of websites and papers in the build up to the game the Sharks… Continue Reading
The sun has set on the empire of the Blue Bulls. The Bulls 26-21 loss to the Force in Perth not only puts to an end the hopes of a 2011 Super 15 title but also foreshadowed the end of… Continue Reading
I don’t know how they do it. How the hell do Cheetahs fans get up every Saturday morning, pull that orange and white jersey off the shelf, slip it over their shoulders and walk out into the sun ready to… Continue Reading
Full marks to Digby Ioane for his try celebration against the Bulls yesterday. There seems to be a little confusion as to whether the move is called “The Catepillar” or “The Spinning Top“, but either way Big Daddy likes!
Oh dear. This is starting to seem all too familiar. The Bulls got themselves a “to nothing” ass-whooping in Christchurch. The Cheetahs turned up empty handed after a brave but outgunned performance in Kiwiland. The Stormers looked inept and brainless… Continue Reading
BigDaddy was on the move this weekend during round 8 of super rugby. The venue was the Sharks Supporters Club, Cape Town branch (SSC – CT Branch), which is tucked away on Palmyra road, Claremont, between the latest, greenest Woolworths… Continue Reading
Wynand Olivier burst onto the Super rugby scene in 2005 amidst a storm of controversy about his hair. Certain sections of the Blue Bulls fan base were in awe of his long flowing locks – while the more conservative sections… Continue Reading
