SA Rugby Christmas wish list – Merry Christmas to All!

December 24, 2013
Posted by


It’s been a year of great up’s and downs, many discussions around the great game we love and we will have many more in the year to come.

Ruggaworld wants to wish all our bloggers and members a beautiful Christmas. Hope 2014 brings all you hope for.

Hope you all have been nice so that you get what you wished for this Christmas.

If their would have been a wish list from the Springboks and the Super Rugby Teams I think this would have been it!


  • We think it’s time for the Springboks to be the #1 Test nation!
  • Some more young talent through the ranks to take pressure of our valuable veterans thanks Santa.
  • The results were so close last time, so we think we’re due for an All Blacks scalp.
  • An engraving of “South Africa” on The Rugby Championship trophy!


  • To see the burgeoning women’s game compete regularly against their New Zealand and Australian counterparts.
  • Time for us to win another big title on the world stage
  • No more big names to depart South African rugby - better to have our stars at home please Santa!
  • Another year like that for captain Jean should see him be close to best player in the world.


  • Will they once again, please Santa, make a mockery of heavily changed roster to remain competitive?
  • More of the same up front thanks, it is a joy supporting such a powerful pack!
  • A capable replacement for superboot flyhalf Morné Steyn.
  • A fourth title would be nice to reassert South Africa’s dominance on Super Rugby!


  • Qualifying for a second consecutive ight Super Rugby Finals Series.
  • For Johan Goosen to remain injury free and push for a Springboks spot.
  • Santa, can Willie le Roux be the best attacking player in 2013 Super Rugby?
  • A sterner defence – last season we made the Finals allowing the second-most points in the South African Conference – so there’s no telling what we can do by improving that area.


  • To record a Lions-best 11th place or higher thanks Santa!
  • For our loyal squad, the bulk of who are from the Golden Lions, to make the big step up to Super Rugby.
  • To shock the competition and claim a number of major scalps along the way
  • Santa, can we please see Ellis Park become a fortress this year?


  • To win a title. Four finals is great, but it’s time for that trophy!
  • Santa, can the magic of John Smit and Jake White rub off on everything in 2014?
  • Can our muscle-bound back row bully every other team this year please?
  • Can be the season be the one where Pat Lambie becomes one of the world’s elite?


  • More tries please!
  • Everyone knows our defence is awesome Santa, can it win us a title this year?
  • Can Schalk Burger regain his fearsome form and become a Springbok again?
  • We’d like our coaches to look after JDV - he is very important!

    Happy holidays to everyone, hope you have a great Christmas with your families and may 2014 just be the one you were waiting for.

    Was pretty awesome to be part of this Band of Brothers(and some sisters) for the past few years.

    It has also been great for me to play a bigger role here at Ruggaworld and I have enjoyed it immensely.

    Looking forward to 2014!! :wave:

    Merry Christmas Fellas.
    This time last year SA Rugby was fumbling around in a tryless fog prior to the selection of “You Know Who”.
    What a difference a year makes!
    Best to you….
