Why I envy Steve Hansen
The All Black success over the past few years – and their ability to snatch victory from defeat last Saturday – truly made me think again about the state of South African rugby. Read full blog
Reason to feel Bok-proud
The Springboks produced a cracking performance against a committed team in the All Blacks at Emirates Airline Park. It was a heart-breaking loss because they played so well for such long periods. Read full blog
Game of inches
Saturday's latest epic in the great continuing saga of All Black-Springbok rugby was decided by the smallest of margins. Read full blog
Du Plessis brothers make a statement
The Springboks have learned the hard way over the past two weekends that at the highest level domination of opponents ends up counting for little if you don’t take your opportunities and if you concede momentum with soft moments in a game. Read full blog
Battle lines drawn at the breakdown
The result in Brisbane this past Saturday was a big disappointment. With 30 seconds remaining on the clock and the ball in the Springboks’ possession, to end up losing the test match was a shocker. Read full blog
Boks are in a good space
There is some justice in the fact that Schalk Burger will become the 55th Springbok captain in the Castle Lager Rugby Championship clash with the All Blacks in Johannesburg on Saturday. Read full blog
I’m no great stickler for stats
There’s a trend for “Best Of the Week” teams being picked purely on statistical data for example, when the numbers simply don’t tell the whole story. Read full blog
Bok oldies are indispensable
Saturday’s loss to the Wallabies was a cruel moment in sport, one of those that draws us in so willingly and leaves us in despair when the result doesn’t go our way. Read full blog
Form versus reputation
“Statistics are like bikinis. What they reveal is suggestive but what they conceal is vital.” – Aaron Levenstein Read full blog
Cut Bok coach some slack
The Springboks beat the World XV 46-10 in their opening match of the season last week, but if you read or listen to some of the social media reaction to the team announcement for the match against Australia, you’d think they lost by that score. Read full blog
Real Deal, or Phony War?
Will this year's Rugby Championship be the Real Deal, or the Phony War? Read full blog
A blueprint for Bok success
The 2015 Super Rugby decider in Wellington was a high-quality final contested by two great teams. Read full blog
Two SA standouts in all-NZ affair
It was an all-New Zealand Super Rugby final, but two South Africans have emerged with credit. Read full blog
It can’t just be about experimentation
The Springboks have arrived in Cape Town and have started to intensify the build-up to the three match sequence that will start their international season. Read full blog
Square peg, round hole
On Saturday, Nick Mallett’s post-match comment that South African coaches should simply learn from the Hurricanes, reminded me of a conversation I had with a former teammate at London Irish. Read full blog
Steyn provides significant boost to Boks
Having seen so many Springbok coaches come and go in the more than two decades since the end of isolation, it can get irritating when Heyneke Meyer says he thought he’d get a medal. Read full blog
Weighing up the collateral damage
As attention switches rapidly to the upcoming international programme, the three national coaches are weighing up collateral damage from Super Rugby. Read full blog

In a state of flux
While the Brumbies deserve credit for defeating the Stormers, I was irked by the match commentators’ assessment. Read full blog
