J was just reading the Blood Brothers website. (http://www.blood-brothers.co.za)

They have a section where there is information on the players and something on there really made me smile.

The question was ....

Toughest opponent?

Matfield's answer = Paul O’Connell
Bakkies' answer = Nobody :D

Well, he is The Enforcer !
Tell you what, I'm just glad this guy is a Springbok and not a Kiwi / Ausie

I was watching the 2007 final again tonight and Bakkies was a monster in that game with some truly scary cleanouts at the rucks. We're really going to miss him. I really hope they're just being extra cautious with him and that he will be available in the knockout stages (Although having him around to keep the Pacific Islanders honest in the pool stages would have been nice.)

As much as everyone loves to hate him he is a great lock and if he had played in the earlier years of rugby he would have been a scary opponent as we all know the game was a bit more "dirty" back then.

I feel that although he has done some super stupid things, he has also been punished unfairly a number of times.

We will miss him once he hangs up his Bok boots.

Bakkies makes me lol... He equates himself to farm machinery that needs to warm up before shifting into action.


Pray he sees out the game with no injury.
