    Took us 9 years to win this.

    Rassie could not ask for a better start to the season. He will have to make some brave but nice decisions when cutting his WC squad.

    Bravo Bokke - well deserved.

    Could easily be heading to Japan as favourites.

    Its still a bit unreal for us, after a rough time with Coetzee, finally we have a coach with a plan and good vision.

    Yep. Amazing what can happen with coaching. The talent produced in RSA, if tuned right, should be world beaters.

    Wonder how Leyds must be feeling.

    He was out in the wilderness for a while, got a squad call up and a bench spot and then sent packing again. Now he has a start. Let's hope he goes well. He probably knows he would not be there if Aphiwe was fit.

    Boks B team squeak home. Tedious game plan though. 57,000 one-off hit-ups and that's it. Looks like they're going to try and bludgeon their way to RWC victory.

    Dyanti done for roids. Might want to look at some of those English pumpy boys too. Underhill. Definitely Neil Back. Better also check Ben from Accounts. Comically distorted physique.

    Yep,

    Sad affair really. The kid had talent but I fear 4-6 years out of the game will be the end of him. He will need to focus on other things in life now. Silly, silly mistake to make too and I suspect a lot of it in trying to get back on track in order to qualify for RWC selection. Did not work in the first place and even if it did, he would have been caught.

    Yep.

    Both brilliant players. Smith one of my all time favourite Bok players. Schalk always got all the plaudits, but Smith did more than his fair share as well.

    Literally every rugby player ever, except halfbacks, who have comically distorted brains.
