    Good to see Uys back… at 1.91m and 95kgs his physicality has been missing…

    I’d have Basson on the wing instead of this new geezer (alebeit I have not seen much of his game, if any that I can recall)…

    Always good to have Smith back… but with Scholtz and Floors… the mix is not right… and with the average Raubenheimer off the bench… even worse…

    Cheetah’s need some ‘real’ locks… ie one that are over 200cm and 115kg’s with the talent too boot…

    Backs on the bench are good…

    Hy reken hy gaan die senior admiraal van die vloot daar wees.
    Hy gaan glo een of ander lid van die Youff League omkoop om n kickback te vat – as hulle vir Lesotha twee duikbote koop..

    Willem de Waal may be one dimensional but it is still one dimension more than Peter Grant.

    Suppose you have a point.
    Grant is really a 12 then.
    One that can’t kick.

    You all will want to live in my Lesotho, perhaps not Cab because in my schools kids will be moered hard. My defence force will be the worlds first corporate defence force.

    Our entire energy generation capacity will be green. We will use kites to generate wind energy and the spanish ‘mirror boiler’ model for sun energy.

    And o liewe hemel we will have a rugby team. We will moer die springbokke in 5 years max. Bafana we will bliksem probably in year two.

    The SANDF already tried that

    They even got Ernst & Young to do a 40 million USD corporatization study for them and then imoplemented it….

    Sorry

    Army is not a company

    In an army

    When the backoffice boys screw up operations does not look bad in front of “the client”… they die.

    Hence in an army

    What operations says is what ioperations gets… everyone serves them.

    CFO serves operations… not bean crunching

    CEO does what COO says… punt klaar

    As long as your Lesotho is the new Volkstaat it will succeed….

    Otherwise

    Ja well… eish

    No man you are not following me. If you look at Executive Outcomes they are a company which operates on rank and file. Mine would just be bigger. I need to have a strong air force but thats as far as the fancy stuff goes. i want foot soldiers who can live for weeks on mountain edges in the cold and patrol the area.

    The whole idea with a corporate armed force is that the force must generate money, not just eat it.

    For sure… and even worse when January is on his inside and De Jong on the outside… has to be Duvenage/Whitehead if they are going to persist with him at 10…

    As for the Mummy… not everybody… it’s taken 2 seasons of running away from tackles for his die-hards to turn…

    Even Snor is going to have to divorce his Auntie…
