Yeah we chose Georgia because they are the best and biggest bullies on the rugby planet. Nope. We were going to incorporate them in our domestic comp in 2020 AND play them internationally along with Scotland.
Let that sink in. SA rugby is doing more for world rugby than people think.
Level 3 - curfew and restricted booze sales, not as bad as things have been but the govt has run out of leverage for their failure to vaccinate and so on.
Was always going to be no crowds anyway. SARU pushed for 25-50% from their end but that was never likely.
Boks have some issues at lock...
Unfathomable now that a 3x RWC winner has not had the chance to host in 24+ years. SARU have given up on bidding actually after 3 or 4 consecutive failed atrempts at landing the deal. Even after independent research sugfested SA was the best candidate for RWC 2023.
Thanks Japan for your betrayal.
SARU also lost out on RWC 2023 because of Japan's sneaky maneuvres. Most people don't recall that.
In SA we can accept someone leaving for more money if forewarned. Being blindsided like SARU were I don't blame them at all if they had decided to dump the Sunwolves earlier. If SARU had...
Get it in your thick skull. SA never cut off the Sunwolves. The Japanese Rugby Union (JPRU) never subsidised their team going forward. If ARU and NZRU so welcomed them then, why did they not offer to sponsor their participation?
Going well there financially is it? Sponsor them you could not...
They don't care, Blue.
So long we are there at all costs apparently. You know, they'll be sitting at home watching rugby prime-time while we miss out on proper fucking currie cup due to this shit.
This weekend's game was 5AM on a SUNDAY. Who the fuck plays international rugby...
Problem is, next year 'rona gone then you have 150 Springboks. Exaggeration, I know, but something like that.
It is truly something of significance here to get that jersey and probably even more so at the darkness.
I'm also keen for us to participate.
I really, really am.
Feels like the 1-3 saffas on here are being attacked for our government or for SARU though and then some other things in between here which I won't mention.
We don't think it's in our best interest to go.
But I think we should go...
I think your lot can win and want to win and set some records straight w.r.t Eden Park.
Campese didn't make your job easier I suspect, but maybe that's just the Aussie way to be brazen.
Your supporters here has not made it easy for the neutral to, for once, actually support you even though...
At no point that I know of. There.
I'm not the coach.
I used to have a lot of respect for Australia. I even had a bet that Australia would win the weekend past with a mate of mine. My colleague agreed also and said "I also think Australia are gonna win".
Heck, I even think so now with the...
