Rugby

Too much risk in status quo
So the Springbok tour and the rugby year is over and I’ve been back in Cape Town for two days and have had some time to reflect on the last month and also what went before that. Read full blog
Rugby 2016 tests results
As the old saying goes…It’s all over bar the shouting. And there’ll be plenty of that this week with England to play Australia in the last remaining test of the year.... Read full blog
Final notes from the road
I’ve been to the Millennium Stadium – well okay, now the Principality Stadium – many times and I tend to associate it with Springbok wins and Welsh laments about coming so near and yet so far Read full blog
The need to find answers quickly
I realise there is nothing funny about rugby in South Africa right now, but I would like to start with something that happened in Dublin that made us chuckle. Read full blog
Big decision imminent and necessary
The words that have kept coming to me since the Springboks plunged to their new low in Florence at the weekend were uttered by former national captain and team manager Morne du Plessis. Read full blog
So many talking points, so little time
Another close call for the Wallabies, another dispiriting result for the Springboks, a bounce back from the All Blacks, the race for RWC 2023, and the World Rugby Awards are talking points this week. Read full blog
We need to draw a line in the sand
As the anger and discontent over the Springbok performance at Twickenham continues to simmer, the same questions keep swirling around when it comes to the state of South African rugby. Read full blog
Time to make foreign legion extinct
On the face of it, there should be good reason to think that the Springboks have one big advantage against England at Twickenham on Saturday. Read full blog
Gavin Rich's notes from the road
I stayed on in London and haven’t travelled to Florence. I will rejoin the tour when the Springboks get to Cardiff. Read full blog
No need for NZ to sing the blues
We ended up in a Blues bar in Chicago on Saturday night. Fitting? Not really. Read full blog
Size matters...a lot
It was with mixed feelings that I left Wembley after watching the Springboks draw with the Barbarians. Read full blog
Looking Behind the Silver Ferns
I’m on the way to Chicago and the start of a November tour schedule that has prompted some bullish talk among the Home Unions about how many Southern Hemisphere scalps might be picked up in the coming weeks. Read full blog
Boks must play the conditions
John Plumtree, around a recent braai, told me that one of the big differences between New Zealand and this country is that here there is a lot of talk about game-plan whereas the Kiwis don’t mention it at all. Read full blog
The first step to saving Bok rugby
The big debate about whether or not the Rugby Indaba would lead to any meaningful change in the structure of South African rugby is an interesting one. Read full blog
Cheika's tirade costs him respect
It was a weekend that threw up a bit of everything, most of it enjoyable. Read full blog
Losing the arrogance made good platform
From what was said by the key role-players beforehand and again in the press conference afterwards, the national coaching indaba held in Cape Town was a resounding success. Read full blog
At least Indaba can provide a start
Johan Ackermann’s Lions team has taken 50 points twice this year. I point this out in the interests of fairness, for many see Ackermann as the alternative to Allister Coetzee. Read full blog
Looking for a few good men
It isn’t difficult to believe that this week’s Springbok coaching indaba in Cape Town will do little to change the state of the game. Read full blog
Not losing sight of rugby’s heartbeat
South Africa’s record defeat to New Zealand has cast such a shadow over South African rugby that it is tempting to think the dark clouds are gathering over every aspect of our national game. Read full blog
SA rugby needs a long-term solution
In the wake of the disaster in Durban, SA Rugby’s long-planned national coaching indaba couldn’t come at a better time. Read full blog
