I do think you, me and Apoc are the last remaining CC fans :(
IMO the stronger, better and more competitive the CC, the better our Bok team will perform.

The S15 is eroding our Boks' strength and other countries' players know our players too well. It's one thing to study videos of your opponents but actually knowing and playing against each other too often cannot be good for us.

The S15 should revert to a S10 and be played over a shorter period.

The same for the Tri-Nations. Nice competition but getting stale. It also limits incoming tours from the Five Nations' teams. Yeah, so maybe it's time to scrap the T3N as well.

Stand by for Argentina! I will be buying a decent Puma jersey before the WC. Hopefully they bring something new to that TN business.

I am in favour of a Super 12 - 4 teams from each country with relegation. Promotion-relegation matches can build that local derby business. Argh! Too complex to think about. My potjie is just about ready to simmer through the big game and my beer is in need of replacement.

That kick to corner from Michy was absolute magic hey. Even if we lost, I would have been happy just seeing that kick :)

Bulls youngsters will gel in the coming games and then be dangerous so I'm glad we got this win tonight.

Not too shabby start for me on Superbru.

1st in two of my pools, 17th on Rugby15 and in the Top 5% of the global.

Jip you guys out played us everywhere. Perfect example of what experience brings to a team :)

+1. Very, very poor performance. I am sure that they will better themselves in the coming weeks.

O shut up! :p:D

I am having a hard time with the margins in the Currie Cup. Well that and I feel like I don't know ANY of the teams anymore :(

After round 1 I'm in the top 2%. Pretty cool :)

Grats :D

I did not do well at all in round one :(

Hoping Round two proves to be a better one for me but seeing as I know too little about the makeup of the teams and the new players to make good calls.

Thanks Devill. Did I really just do that? :) hehehe. I average at about 80% accuracy for CC, I suck at Super Rugby though, averaging at around 70%.

Well I ended in the global top 2% for the super rugby with less than a 70% accuracy for this year :wtf:
