Super Rugby Preview – Sharks vs Stormers

  Match Date: Saturday 2nd March   Kings Park, yes we can officially call it that again (not that we ever stopped),  plays host to the big one.  It’s the final match of the weekend and it’s all out derby warfare!  The Saturday night fight sees the respective “original” coastal franchises (there are now 3) […]

Fantasy Tips: Kickers

With the launch of our new weekly kickers poll (to compliment the captaincy poll) we unpack the early kicking options this season.  If managers didn’t read our articles thoroughly last week (or the week before) they might have found themselves sans kicker.  The main thorn in managers sides was Aaron Cruden who is no longer […]

Super Rugby Preview – Bulls vs Force

Match Date: Saturday 2nd March Fort Loftus looked like a fort again last week and the Force looked like a Farce.   The penultimate game of Round 3 looks more mismatched than Whoopie Goldberg and Ted Danson (we went all the way back to the 90’s to get that joke).  The Bulls will not be […]

Super Rugby Preview – Chiefs vs Cheetahs

Match Date: Friday 1st March After a fine away win over the Hurricanes, the Blues return home to face the tournament favourites, the Crusaders.  The last time these 2 teams met  it was carnage in Canterbury with the home side smashing the visitors black and blue in a 59-12 victory.  This time round it should be […]

Humble Pie

Yes it was the Force, yes they were at home, yes they will face stiffer opposition, but what a performance!  On their Super Rugby debut the Kings showed guts and determination that epitomize what it is to be proudly South African.  With the odds and the public stacked against them the Southern Kings not only […]

Super Rugby Review – Rebels vs Brumbies

Rebels 13 – 30 Brumbies   A rampant Brumbies ran over the Rebels to advance their status as the new Wallaby top-dogs.  We thought it would be close, and with the Rebels leading 13-12 at half-time it looked like it might be, in the end it was far from it.  The ACT franchise kept the […]
