    Nee kyk, ons doen goed op verdediging, ons forwards is goed, but for crying out loud, jdv maak elke bal wat hy kry dood. Dink die beste ding vir ons is n skip pass vanaf elke beweging. Skip jdv. Ek gaan n beldtog loods, die skip jdv beweging. Hy maak elke beweging dood, elke liewe een. Ek dink Wynand Olivier was te lank deel van die bok groep en het raad aan jean gegee oor hoe om die bal lewendig te hou, as jean nou sy har groei, sal ek dink dis wynand op 12

    Maak dit n veldtog eerder as beldtog en hare eerder as har

    Sorry but bambie is not up to it

    Bambie did have a poor game. I can only single out our starting 8 forwards and marcell coetsee for having a good game. Our backline is poor. We might as well start the game with 15 forwards. We might to consider bringing back morne steyn for the English test and dropping our captain. Cant blame the backline, if the flyhalf and inside centre are clueless.

    Van die begin af dit gesê dat hy swak tackle en te stadig is.

    EN

    Ten spyte van die alewige geteem oor Lambie, Steyn, Grant, Goosen en Jantjes… het ons nou se dae net average losskakels oor in SA.

    Kannie die coach blameer as hy kak het om mee ‘n paleis te bou…

    Heyneke Meyer must go.
    He Is not up to it.
    If he was of colour he would be
    Ridiculed already.
    He is not going anywhere with the
    Bokkies
    Get Rid of him

    En met geteem bedoel ek

    1. Brendan en Kaapse media wil Johan Goosen hê

    2. Sharskworld en Kaapse media wil Lambie hê

    3. Jhb media wil Jantjes kans gee… Kaapse media baie gekant.

    4. Heyneke wil Morne Steyn hê

    Al vier is kak.

    Daar is nie nuwes wat Cruden en maats kan match nie.

    Wonder when will we see an 80 minute perfomrance of rugby from SA?

  12. avatar Aldo says:
    November 17th, 2012 at 7:15 pm

    David, I dont agree completely. Goosen is the real deal, but he is injury prone, which worries me. I wish he wasnt, cos we do not look all that good.

    Duiwel, Meyer has had to deal with the loss of a whole lot of senior players and a bunch of injuries. Our defense and forwards are seriously up for it, what we need is a different backline coach and a new inside centre

  13. avatar Aldo says:

    And as solid as kirchner is, and he is solid and I like his play, Lambie is our future 15, him or Le Roux. So play one of them now.

    Let me recall some Mallet statements by memory:

    1. Why is Lambie so much poorer than he was for Guppies?
    2. JdeV was magnificent on defense, gained metres over
    the gainline every time – but then we get slow ball?
    Surely this is where you attack hand to hand from?
    3. Question: Is Kirchner part of the backline – creating
    the man over etc. – or not? And why?
    4. Boks look much more confident on defense than on
    attack. Why? (Afraid for the wrath of HM?)
    5. Total lack of play between backs and forwards.
    6. Ball never going through the hands. Hougaard
    and JPP never got a ball. Instead we usually
    kicked or bashed.
    Perhaps you can add to the points raised.

    CJ vd Linde vindicated all my earlier criticism
    against him. He was POOR.

    Gurthro completely missed 2 (3?) tackles where
    he was bounced off.

    That Scottish try from the lineout cancells out
    a lot of the good Bok defence. That was an
    elementary mistake.

    Etzebeth and others good in carrying – but
    nothing comes from it.

    Point Mallett raised: In their last tests ABs
    had 18 offloads, Frogs 13, Boks . . . wait for
    it: ONE.

    Weet jy wat is ʼn Leunstoel afrigter???

    Dit is iemand wat die wedstryd ontleed as dit verby is, wat die afrigters uit mekaar trek oor verkeerde keuses, wat die spelers kritiseer, wat kla oor die skeidsregter se besluite, en tevrede is daarmee om eerder in die stadion te sit en eerder ʼn toeskouer as ʼn afrigter/speler te wees.
    Word wakker!!! Dit vra toewyding om vir ure lank te oefen met die wete dat jy deur die toeskouers uitgejou gaan word, deur jou oppponente gepak gaan word en die veld stokflou en vuil gaan verlaat.
    Dit is iemand wat die afrigters in die media kritiseer oor hoe verkeerd sy keuses was, die opinie van mense gebaseer op persoonlike provinsiale voorkeure of rassistiese oortuigings,
    Mense wat in hul lewe self niks verder op die afrigters leer gevorder het as om sy seuntjie en die se maatjies op sy agterplaas grasperk te onderrig in die fyner kunsies van sy geliefde spel wat hy glo met onderskeiding gespeel het en so net, net sy Sprinbok klere misgeloop het.

    Julle Leunstoel afrigters maak my siek!!!!

    Wat jy dus sê is dat as ons nie die Bokke
    afrig nie, mag ons nie die span bespreek
    of ‘n mening hê nie?

    Ja ongelukkig, blouballas
    is ons Leunstoel afrigters
    die seuns wat televiesies Besit en aanskakel,
    seuns saterdae rugby toe neem,
    Klubs getrou finansieel ondetsteun
    die rede is dat Daai twee en twintig poepolle
    Met hulle gladbek afrigters
    n trui het om oor sy Fokker kop te trek
    En n moerse salaries vir sy effort.

    Ons verwag na about tien jaar se rugby speel
    hy moet kan fkn pass at least
    tackle en die bliksemse bal kan raakvang
    sonder om die ding te laat fkn val.
    En as die poepol nie kan nie
    n afrigter om dit te kan sien
    en dit te fkn leer.

    En ons is gatvol vir hulle Fokken stories
    hoekom hulle die pay vat en dan instede
    Van rugby speel
    Hulle met ons geld oorsee gaan
    En naam wegmoer.
