    Thats cause they didn’t..They were Transvaal.. I recall hearing When the Reds come Marching but no idea.

    You must try catch the game KSA , the Aussies played sublime rugby..The Deans factor has taken grip alot quicker than most thought it would.

  • Lions are powerful animals who usually hunt in coordinated groups and stalk their chosen prey. However, they are not particularly known for their stamina – for instance, a lioness’ heart makes up only 0.57 percent of her body weight (a male’s is 0.45 percent of his body weight), whereas a hyena’s heart is close to 10 percent of its body weight. [59] Thus, although lionesses can reach speeds of 59 km/h (40 mph),[60] they can only do so for short bursts[61] so they have to be close to their prey before starting the attack. They take advantage of factors that reduce visibility; many kills take place near some form of cover or at night.[62] They sneak up to the victim until they reach a distance of approximately 30 metres (98 ft) or less

    5 or 6 phases now as they are 15m out and the ball is chipped. (wrong call IMO)

  • @klempie (Comment 84) : Yeah must admit my enthusiasm has been waning. There is no structure or plan evident. And some of the selections are baffling. I cannot believe how we have gone so far downhill in little over a season (taking into account players away with the Boks). The skill levels are very poor!

    So here is the reason for my “win by 15 points” call.

    I just figured that when I was being balanced all season, the Sharks played very poorly; maybe if I displayed completely unfounded optimism, they would surprise me.

    Quite obviously my idea was as stupid as it sounds. :evil:
