Stormers officially the best SA team, ever

19 February 2014, 15:00

The Stormers are undoubtedly the best Super Team South Africa has ever seen. The stats don’t lie!


If you compile the total log points since the competition began and divide them to calculate the aggregate, then the Crusaders come out tops, followed by the Hurricanes with the Stormers breathing down their necks in third place.


What this means is that over the gruelling log points phase the Stormers are the best. In 2012 they won 14 games - a record!


I think too many South Africans get emotional over the semi’s and the finals. Of course these two games are quite meaningless, really. They are like a sort of silly ‘add on’ to the real show, which is the battle for the most log points.


After watching the fare last weekend I can comment as follows:


Sharks: They have peaked in their first game against the Bulls, and while they may scrape a few more wins that would only be because of their ridiculously easy home ground advantage in the opening phase. When Jake White gets itchy feet after about game ten, the coachless Sharks will fall apart.

Bulls: Just sad. In fact they were so sad they even made the Sharks look better than they are. Embarrassing.

Cheetah’s: Terrible problems at number ten. Without a decent pivot they will continue to struggle. I predict a downward spiral for them.

Lions: Played above themselves on Saturday and well done little cubs! They will play a great under-cat role in the competition, as this is what they have perfected over the years. They will be happy with a 13th or 14th place finish I imagine, because they won’t relinquish their under-cat role very easily – they just enjoy losing too much.

Stormers: Is it asking too much that the Stormers be pre-fixed in conversation as ‘SA’s-most-successful-team- the-Stormers’, or ‘The-team-that-come-from-the-place-where-everybody-wants-to-live-the-Stormers’, or even, ‘The-team-that-every-player-wants-to-play-for-the-Stormers’?


I just mean as a sign of respect . . . use it don’t use it.


I see this mega-team sweeping to a record number of wins this year and taking over the overall number two spot from the Hurricanes. 2015 will see them chase down the Crusaders for number one spot.


If I didn’t regard the semi’s and finals as the hit-‘n-giggle of rugby, I would even venture to say that, for what it is worth, and not that it counts for anything, but I would say that they will most probably take the final as well as the Top Log Standings points.


Only the supremely arrogant would think otherwise.

The ANC arena has become messy beyond understanding. When people are in such mess, they tend to think they are untouchable as the mess creates a sort of barrier around them. Read more...

Yes, by 2019 quotas can have a major impact on the performance of the Springboks. If half of the World Cup squad must be made up of players of colour and their selection is not based on merit, then I agree. Read more...
