It gets on my nerves when people see things where they are not and then allocate it to a player that does not deserve it.

And so you should! I just get nervous when someone with the nickname "Devill" comments on my post :p

You did not see one compliment for spies after he had a great game last week, neither did anyone aknowledge that Olivier made the most tackles of all the boks last weekend even though he was on for a shorter period of time, etc etc.....

So sorry if you are not one of these :eek:

I am! I just didn't post it here :D

So, when's the next international?

Amen to Devill on his analysis of Ruan Pienaar. He really should be our first choice at 9.

South African coaches of the last 15 years or so have messed up the careers of so many talented players calling them "Utility" or just playing them out of position.

Bad selection and no plan B.

What we need is a game maker and reader (I am not Bulls fan but facts) past game makers and readers of the game:
Naas, Uli, Bobby and Joost - they created play and broker the ranks and could shift a game according to their play. I am a Sharks fan but if we had one of their calibre we would be miles ahead.

Of all the negatives I took out of Saturday, none trumps the EP home ground booing the opposition (at first) and then the Boks (Steyn) later. If that is the kind of conduct they enjoy, I see no merit for the Kings getting anything but the short end of the Super15 stick. Seriously. I refuse to think that all fans from Cape areas are like this but the evidence points in another direction.

As for the game, I cannot name a single player who had anything above a mediocre day out. Picking on one or the other is simply not enough. I read a post above where someone took comfort out of Olivier being average. Average. Is that the best we can expect at this level? Thankfully, he is going to Japan - and as I said before, I hope they teach him how to pass. We really need to up our game, sure, but I see no reason why professionals should bother entertaining a crowd whose manners dictate booing as a means of support.

MickeyD - how bad was this at the stadium? Were people around you booing? When I have seen it, I have asked the low-class rubbish why they do that and find middle ear infections to be the primary cause.

There exists a certain faction of rugby supporters of a certain group of clubs in the PE metro who think that they are a law unto themselves. They started the booing...
