As a Sharks’ supporter, I’m neither here nor there when it comes to throwing my lot in with the sinners, sorry, Stormers.
30 Pieces of silver should be enough to convince even the most zealous crazies that the Stormers are nothing more than a pipe dream, a religious following of Western Cape Wallies that understand nothing about the game of rugby. Then again, we knew that already…
So what drives the useless Stormers and their clueless supporters to don the rather effeminate hooped jerseys? (Sizzlers fan club, anyone?)
Let’s be honest, the Bulls are by far South Africa’s most successful rugby union, with more Currie Cup finals being won by the blue union than any other province.
Having said that, the Sharks are right up there, having made numerous Currie Cup and Super Rugby finals or semis, only to choke when it mattered most…
Oh well, such is life in the Choke Tank.
Last year saw a massive political hoo-ha when the Loins were rightfully dispossessed of their Super Rugby place in the competition.
I don’t know why the relegation system has been disbanded, but I firmly believe that Western Province Rugby should be relegated from all South African tournaments going forward.
It’s painfully clear that rugby in the Western Cape is dysfunctional, to say the least, and that anyone still screaming like dementeds for the local Cape side, is in dire need or therapy.
Let’s be honest, Western Cape (Stormers) Rugby will be SA’s wooden spooners in 2014.
My only wish is that the glorious EP Kings would return to the fold and teach the Capetonians how to play the basic game of rugby…
