Rugby

Greetings from Chicago
My first time in this city and quite an occasion to be here with the All Blacks match against the US Eagles to be played in front of a capacity 62 000 crowd at the famous Soldier Field Read full blog
Cape success and Bulls bluster
While few have noticed it, with the advent of the professional era, both the Blue Bulls and Western Province have been fighting an unseen battle – often at school level – to recruit the best available personnel. Read full blog
The Cape is where it’s happening
The Currie Cup may not be as important as it used to be, but if anyone doubted the passion that goes into winning the old trophy, it was evident for all to see when the Western Province players were joined by their fans in celebrating when Marnitz Boshoff’s attempted penalty kick flew wide.

Australian sideshow not good for rugby
Much as we like to beat each other, New Zealand, South Africa, Australia and now Argentina need each other to be strong… Read full blog
No choke for Province this time
With this being the week of a Newlands Currie Cup final, there is sure to be one question dominating the rugby conversation in Cape Town – will Western Province choke again? Read full blog
Bok requirement must be bottom line
With Jaco Taute on the doubtful list and involved in a race against time to be fit for Saturday’s Absa Currie Cup semi-final, it's easy to agree with those who feel Western Province have drawn the short straw. Read full blog
Simple call for consistency
There has been some discussion in the wash up from the Ellis Park test about the manner in which the match-deciding penalty against Liam Messam came about. Read full blog
Who's that kid at No 10 for the Boks?
I’m writing this column sitting on a London overground train as I make my way home from a long day of media at Twickenham. Read full blog
It's a privilege to watch the best in the world
By necessity, the seedings for the Rugby World Cup have to be done well in advance, and are therefore more influenced by the outcome of the previous tournament than the results of the two years leading up. Read full blog
Boks come of age
While the Springboks must be commended for ending their Rugby Championship campaign with consecutive home victories, it’s important to remain performance rather than results-driven. Read full blog
Time to get off Heyneke’s back
Given that the All Blacks had already won the Rugby Championship and had to travel from Argentina to play at altitude, there is probably still enough room for those who want to debate the relevance of it. Read full blog

The retention of Oupa Mohoje in the Springbok team for Saturday’s clash with the All Blacks has largely gone unremarked, which must mean that there is general agreement that his performance against Australia was up to standard. Read full blog
The biggest game of the year
It’s the game many of us have been waiting for, perhaps ever since Nigel Owens blew the final whistle at Ellis Park last year to end one of the greatest test matches ever played. Read full blog
Lambie flexes game-management muscle
On the evidence of the Springboks’ four-try bonus point win over the Wallabies at Newlands, the intent of Heyneke Meyer’s men to keep the ball in hand was clear for all and sundry to see. Read full blog
Kudos to Bok conditioning coach
The perceived superiority of the All Blacks' conditioning was the main reason I was taking a pessimistic view of South Africa’s chances of success at Ellis Park on Saturday, but after Newlands I am wondering if maybe I should have a rethink Read full blog

The All Blacks had a mantra through the last World Cup, one that has continued to serve them well. Read full blog
Boksing clever
Having suffered back-to-back away defeats – albeit by narrow margins – the Springboks’ chances of winning the Rugby Championship are now balanced on a knife’s edge. Read full blog
Boks must improve off the ball

Pollard should get the Kallis treatment
The past few days have provided another example of how quickly the mood of the South African rugby public can swing. Read full blog
