So reports suggest Meyer could be in the Springbok hot seat until Rugby World Cup 2019. The news has been prominent since last season and has surfaced once again this year at a time which is the toughest in Heyneke Meyer’s tenure. This is not new, Springbok coaches always feel the heat before the […]
Argentina have reasons to be positive The brilliance that was the Pumas must be acknowledged. Their development side managed to dazzle in the Vodacom Cup a few years ago and some of those performers excelled a few years later. They made history for their country and beat the mighty Springboks. Their attitude was massive and […]
Daniel Carter and Sonny Bill Williams among big players miss out on the squad to tour Africa, I mean South Africa. There will also be no Waisake Naholo as the start winger managed to break his leg on what was an impressive debut for the All Blacks. Hansen also sounded disappointed with the injury suffered […]

Our very own Brendon Shields, who is under a self-imposed ban from blogging till now, shares his views on how we should re-shape and re-think how we use the whole team.
Ek kan vandag maklik skryf oor hoe bekakkenswaardig die Springbokke in Nasrec was teen die All Blacks gistermiddag, maar dit sal te maklik wees.
Julle sal my vergewe as ek nie té liries raak oor die Bokke se wen oor die Wallabies gister nie, vir die eerste keer die jaar het hulle eenvoudig ’n wen gekry wat hulle verwag het om te kry.

Kan dit waar wees? Kan twee afrigters van totale teenoorgestelde pole hulle in dieselfde posisie vind op dieselfde stadium van hulle loopbane?
Greg Growden from the Sydney Morning Herald gives us the Aussie view from this weekend’s test.
