Stormers throw egg in your general direction

04 March 2014, 12:38

Yes, the Stormers have once again made a fart in your general direction, proving their detractors wrong with an artful display of the waiting game.


Personally, I kind of like the way they break us down, only to build us up, and I feel a victory sealed in the dying moments gives us extra value for money as we knyp, waiting desperately to exhale. I think they knew all along the score was coming – they were just playing cat and mouse with their detractors, embarrassing them right before the whistle.


And what a try it was! A splendid lineout jump, a rolling maul, a mess of bodies and the ball over the line – quite spectacular! I am quite over that frivolous French-style passing stuff which gives rise to basket-ball scores and detracts from the core of the game. Go watch sevens if its bling you are after.


Of course the Cheetahs and Lions are the spent force I said they were. I am really sure why they are even on the field? Expect lots of empty stadiums wherever these teams play. I just hope they don’t bankrupt the game.


And I noticed that the Bulls stadium was almost completely empty too, which is quite telling. Though I imagine the Stormers will pack them in when they Come, they Conquer and they Get the hell out.


The Sharks will have an easy game against the Lions this week, which will only serve to make them look better than they are (which is not very good if you know your rugby). The Sharks have self-implode written all over them.


This weekend will be a test of the two favourites: the Stormers against the Crusaders. The rest of the games are pretty boring and strongly suggest you give them a miss – easy to do if you live in Cape Town because there is so much to do with the mountains and beaches and wine farms – but not so easy if you live up North. Mmm . . . I sadly suspect you will be forced to watch the other games out of sheer boredom.
