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 to be raising their game this upcoming weekend in order to screw the chances of the rest of the country.
In a tradition that goes back to the earliest days of the Super 12, the minnows of South African rugby save their best games of the season in order to screw up the chances of other local teams. You can bet the Cheetahs will be on top of their game this weekend.
Hell, we could make it a double header. The Cheetahs can screw up the Stormers season and the Bulls can be knocked out of the Super 15 by the Sharks.
Who remembers Gaffie du Toit saving his one good game of the season to eliminate the Stormers and when the Bulls were still the doormats of Super rugby to them pulling one out of the fire at Loftus to dick up another Sharks season?
You can be sure that the SA teams already eliminated from the competition will be pulling out all the stops to stuff up everyone else’s season. Who will the new villain of SA semi-final hopes be this time around?
Geez boys, I thought we’d grown out of the “if I can’t have it – no one else can” mentality.
