I know it may be hard at first but if you slow down, stop, take a deep breath and have a bit of a look around there is something other than the Super 14 happening at the moment.
The Vodacom Cup has kicked off and is well under way at grounds around the country, some people tend to forget about this competition but i promise it provides a nice distraction from the emotional rollercoaster that is the Super 14 and also provides a nice platform to spot a few up and coming stars or one of the older players you love to watch.
Clubs are also nearing the end of their preseason friendlies and are set to kick off the club season.If you don’t take the odd Saturday to catch a club game or two then you really missing out,i must admit to having had a sniff and being addicted to going to club games.
The Vodacom Cup fixtures for this weekend are:
|7||Border||v||Golden Lions||19:00||Absa Stadium, East London|
|8||SWD||v||Griffons||15:00||Rustdene Sports Grounds, Beaufort West|

So if your doctor tells you ease up and get the blood pressure down but you dont want to miss your rugby fix, catch a VC or club game, who knows, you may just like it.
