Let me open by saying I am a WP fan, but I believe something needs to be said about Griquas Rugby.
Every year we watch the CC with anticipation and excitement, we speculate over who will take home the silver wear and who will go home with their tails between their legs. And every year one of the big 5 take home the cup, we brag and insult each other in the name of sportsmanship, definitely one of my favourite past times .
But the one team who makes the least headlines, and usually end at the bottom of the log, truly embody the spirit of Rugby for me. Every year the top 5 teams buy their best players, every year they play with less than half the resources of their competitors and every year they remain competitive.
They play their best, they refuse to make excuses and come back better each time. I take my hat off to Griquas Rugby, they really are an inspiration to the "never say die" motto. Even though they will never be my own team to support, I say lets give credit where credit is due, they deserve some credit and our respect.
