  • Wigan Pekeur :Who is this chap..?

    Justin Wheeler and this lad..?

    Other than that looks like a fairly solid squad..except ofcourse Benjamin at centre :shock:

    Also where is ErnestJ and Baywatch…resting I suspect , perhaps this game is too blood some new players and combos.

  • Benjamin tackles well, is pretty quick, and has TONS of heart.

    Hands like Danie PK though – lets hope they coat his palms with superglue.

  • @CoffeeShopBok;-) (Comment 2) :

    Pekeur is ‘n Winger with an Affro hairdo, only saw him play one game so far this year, in the warmup match against the Bulls at Wits. He didn’t get too many chances in the game, but fielded a number of high balls so at least he looked safe in that aspect of his play.

  • @robdylan (Comment 6) :

    Let’s be fair to Benjamin, a lot of the passes to him can also bet better, I don’t think it’s always just his fault.

  • @walter van transvaal.co.za (Comment 7) : True. Now he’ll be the guy giving the passes, not catching :-)
