Springboks, that was rubbish

“My Sports point of View”

By Stanley Hermanus


The game between Aussies and Springboks was absolute rubbish between 4 lines!

Coetzee needs to find and settle on his team and build for the future, no more surprises (like with Strauss). He can build them up as well as instil much needed confidence in the group. Confidence is everything in sport.

There were some hope for the rest for the world, but then the All Blacks kicked into their AWESOME mode.

The Lions are showing South Africa that if you believe in something put all your heart and mind into it than you will get more successes than failures. They totally mauled my beloved WP team this past weekend. Let’s hope AC and his Boks will follow suit. First things first, start Kriel and Whitely as a combination and allow Mapoe to start in the backline so that he and Elton can connect.

Rohan Janse van Rensburg’ s call up should also not be too far away.

We all know what is to follow on Saturday between the Springboks and NZ All Blacks, but let’s not lose heart.

Well done to all the winning teams!


Many a Liverpool supporter will be very happy; their own team’s win will be a bonus (cherry on the cake).

Round one of the BIG DERBY has come and goes and City (Pep) planted the first blow. It is amazing how Spurs, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool are not even mentioned as title contenders.

Wits breezed through their 1st leg MTN8 semi-final, but Chippa put up a brave fight against the mighty Sundowns to secure a draw.

Costa is not too far away from a red card and subsequent 3 game suspensions. How does he manage to stay on the field each and every time? There is no denying his class though. What about Watford’s fight back after being 2-0 down against the Hammers? This is the most equal league in the world and it all started with the even distribution of TV money.

Liverpool was awesome in winning. They were not even set back by the silly goal conceded to give champions Leicester a sniff of a comeback. Arsenal showed some steel in turning one point into a full house of three log points. All teams need luck one way or the other it is all about what you do with the opportunity(s).

Well done to all the winning teams!
