Interesting weekend of Rugby, hey? All South African teams got an away win, except for the Bulls. The Bulls. Haahahahaha, anyway, moving on…
Blues vs Bulls
14-7 for the half time score and we all thought the Bulls were still in there. But through a terrible 2nd half display of Rugby, the Blues made the Bulls look like an unfit, unorganized and deurmekaar team.
Sunwolves vs Stormers
First things first… how amateur were the officials during that game? BIG communication gap there. It really made it difficult to watch. Another thing that made it difficult to watch, was the bad Rugby from the Stormers. Their defense was shocking. Like Mallet pointed out after the game, it looked better when du Plessis replaced Kriel. How comfortable did Leyds look at fullback?
Southern Kings vs Lions
Malcolm Jaer and Anidisa Ntsila had a fantastic game for the Kings. With Ntsila getting two great breaks. So far this year, I’m more excited to write about the Kings than the Bulls. Never thought I say that, ever. Jaco Kriel with 116 running meters gained with 9 defenders beaten. Micheal Tambwe had a brace of good finishing. Lions Rugby is looking healthy.
Cheetahs vs Sharks
Very equal affair in Bloemfontein Saturday. Very competitive game to watch. That yellow on Coenie? Nah… How much has Kobus van Wyk’s Rugby improved since joining the Sharks? He looks like a completely new player from the Stormers player we knew? Will we see Curwin Bosch play 15 again? He looks like a much more natural 10 at the moment. Raymond Rhule had 156m meters gained with ball in hand. Looks like he is finding some form again. Henco Venter made 15/15 tackles for Vrystaat on Saturday.
