Rugby

A clash of contrasts
Prior to our 1995 World Cup-winning campaign, the late Kitch Christie told us during one particular team meeting that we could either take the high road or the low road to reach the knockout phase. Read full blog
Sharks still have reason to be optimistic
After last week's stats-laden dispatch, I thought I might start this week by lobbing a few more at you that you might take into account before making your weekend picks. Read full blog
Rugby that will bring fans back
All the talk about how finals rugby is played during the course of last week might have given the impression that neutrals could just as easily entertain themselves this past weekend by watching paint dry as watch the two Super Rugby playoff qualifiers. Read full blog
Sharks up for the fight
“Copy and paste,” was Jake White’s riposte at Newlands when quizzed about how the Sharks would approach their play-off decider against the Highlanders in Durban on Saturday. Read full blog
Can Jake make his White Sharks great?
“Believe in the power of black and white,” the team urged us every time we switched on a TV this year. Now that they need it, it seems no one took notice. Read full blog
Shedding some light
In rugby we haven’t quite reached the proportions of American sport where they have a statistic for every possible event dating back to the time when someone thought it would be a good idea to put air inside the ball. Read full blog
It will be worse before it gets better
Nick Mallett was on point on Saturday night after the brutal Stormers-Sharks game when he laid it down thick, saying South African teams had underperformed this year. Read full blog
Bitter-sweet for one, lessons for both
Bitter-sweet is probably the best expression to use in describing what the Cell C Sharks and their coaching staff must have felt after their good win over the DHL Stormers in their final Super Rugby league match. Read full blog
We've herd it all before, Bulls
Death and taxes are the only two certainties in life, they say. We reckon Bulls rugby must have come awfully close to making that list. Read full blog
The role of rotation
With one week of the round-robin stage of Super Rugby to play, a valid point of concern is that the Sharks are the only South African side still in contention to win the tournament. Read full blog
Eating your own
As far as I am aware, cannibalism has been banned in most countries, but it is alive and well in Super Rugby. Read full blog
Right decision at the wrong time
When the Sharks first choice players came onto the field late in the game in Bloemfontein at the weekend and threw everything into turning around the Cheetahs’ advantage, it was a movie I had seen before. Read full blog
Long-term investment
Having scooped the IRB junior player of the tournament award and enjoyed a confident debut for the senior Springbok side, Handré Pollard’s stock has risen exponentially over a short period of time. Read full blog
No praise please, we're South African
A compliment to a South African rugby team is like a pint of milk to a bowl of Rice Krispies. “Snap! Crackle! Pop!” you’ll hear them crumble next time they play. Read full blog
The Super Rugby hunt is on
Having been involved in covering Super Rugby right from its inception, I cannot recall a year in which so many teams were still in the hunt so late in the piece. Read full blog
Boks can ride third-year blues
You can call it the annus horriblis.Translated from Latin, it just means "horrible year", with everything that could possibly go wrong ending up going wrong. Read full blog
Why it is better our Boks are overseas
Amid the normal howls of despair that accompany any Springbok team announcement, it is hard to fathom the argument of some that the Bok coach simply shouldn’t pick his best available squad. Read full blog
Bucking the trend
The Springboks whipped Wales convincingly in the first test and were hailed as world-beaters. One week later, they defeated the self-same opposition by a single point. Read full blog
Thinking outside the Boks
“In 1972 a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground.” Read full blog
Finding the right answers
It’s hard to get a conclusive line on what the June internationals have taught us, in part because the quality of the opposition was so varied. Read full blog
