Valke drop Olivier

The Valke have dropped flyhalf Len Olivier for Friday night’s clash against the Blue Bulls in Brakpan for the versatile Riaan “True Blue” Smit.

IOL reports that Smit will again take up the flyhalf reigns with Olivier dropping to the bench after a scintillating display a fortnight ago against Western Province.

Valke coach Rudy Joubert has also recalled suspended winger Johan Swartz and moved the speedy Nicky Kritzinger back to fullback.

Currently contracted Blue Bulls players – winger Dewald Pretorius and outside centre Johan Jackson – will get an opportunity to impress against their employers.

Valke coach Rudy Joubert has also opted to bring back another Blue Bulls player, flanker Emile Verster, for his physical presence against his former team-mates. He replaces Reg-Hack Muller, who drops down to the bench after injuring an ankle.

A decision on big Wouter Moore, the fourth member of the Bulls quartet on loan to the Valke, will be made later this week. Moore is a vital member of the squad, and should he not play, Reg Perkins will keep his place in the Starting XV.

He will be joined by the rugged Ruhan “Chabal” van Jaarsveld, a Sebastian Chabal look-alike who won’t give an inch against a physical Bulls side.

Big Lungelo Payi has also been pencilled in on the bench as cover for Moore.

Valke: Nicky Kritzinger; Dewald Pretorius, Johan Jackson, Hanno Coetzee, Johan Swartz; True Blue Smit, Gerrie Odendaal; Sean Plaatjies, Emile Verster, Warren Perkins, Ruhan van Jaarsveld, Wouter Moore/Reg Perkins, Nico Pretorius, Ryno Barnes, Gavin Whittingham.
Reserves: Jody Jeneker, Frik Venter, Lungelo Payi/Reg Perkins, Reg Muller, Straatkat van Zyl, Len Olivier, Jeff Perkins/Mpho Matsaung. -

  • okay pun not intended but I am truely shocked that they have dropped Len Olivier. I thought he has had a great fooking season.

    But rudy joubert seems to know what he is doing so far this season so let’s have a wait and see.

  • A perfect pun exploits words pairs that sound exactly alike (perfect homophones), or two senses of the same word:

  • “A fight broke out in a kitchen. Egged on by the waiters, two cooks peppered each other with punches. One man, a greasy foie gras specialist, ducked the first blows, but his goose was cooked when the other cold-cocked him. The man who beet him, a weedy salad expert with big cauliflower ears, tried to flee the scene, but was cornered in the maize of tables by a husky off-duty cob. He was charged with a salt and battery. He claims to look forward to the suit, as he’s always wanted to be a sous-chef.”

    At least we have 4 in the top 20…
    But I am surprised with Mackenzie who is at 26 already and he just started playing since 4/5 years ago – West Indies I think (is this not his second series back?)…if not mistaken he fell out of the top 100 before coming back…
    He does have a high average apparently this year…

  • @Hmmm (Comment 44) :

    Steyn has been caught up by Clark and since the last test against India Muli has created an even bigger gap…

    But Steyn still in 2nd and this only his second season as regular bowler….not bad…

    But lets face it….Muli is going to be THE bowling legend….he is going to create such a gap between him and second placed person in most wickets ever (currently still Warne)…especially if he bowls to the same age Warne did (about 5 years to go)…and off-spinners usually last longer than leg!??! I wont be surprised if he does not end on close to double the next person….

    Comes from another blog where some of the Bulls fans would throw their toys with such (or similar) an outburst telling all and sundry to shove the site where the sun don’t shine and that they will never return only to be back a day or so later.

    Hence the accepted response to FJ!!! ELN!!! is usually “Okay, see you in bit” :wink:

    No No, Nobody dislikes Hmmm, we just love giving him a hard time and he loves pulling our chain. We give him shit and he takes it in a good spirit as we take his kak in a good spirit.

    Hmmm is the bloggers version of Steve Irwin, You see some of the things he does or says and you think to yourself, “you idiot, what are you doing” yet the next time he is on you watch with interest.

    Oh and Hmmm is a he BTW, you got that one right ;wink:
