  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 9) : With the exceptions of my Cheetahs and my Blue Bulls, I can agree with you on several occasions. Griquas victory will give more and interesting life to the Premier bottom fights

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 11) : Sharks supporters dislike Blue Bulls for they don’t want to accept last year’s S14 loss yet. Wounds still bleeding and not healed.

    @KSA Shark © (Comment 12) : the bottom placed team in the Premier surely will have to fight a lot to deny Leopards the upgrading.

  • @Die Jood (Comment 13) :

    If only you knew how much i disliked the Bulls since,,,,,,since,,,,,,since ALWAYS. There is only one thing i like less than the Bulls and that is their CC team the Blue Bulls. :wink:

    I thought last year the Valke would surely go down to the first division after not winning a SINGLE match in the premier division. They proved me VERY wrong when the comforatbly stayed in the premier division.

    I think the gap between 1st Div and Premier Div is very big and it will not be easy for the Leopards to jump across that gap.
