  • Speaking of Cricket:

    De Villiers raised a laugh when one of the British journalists, playing a few mind games of her own, asked what he remembered of South African-born Kevin Pietersen’s magnificent ODI century in the tied match in Bloemfontein in January 2005, in the match in which De Villiers made his debut.
    “I don’t remember much,” he said.”I just remember we won the series four-one.”

    Ja definitely brew. Probably gonna knock off work around fiveish, meet a mate in the city and then head up to wembley.
    Probably be at a pub called the torich either before or after. Bit of a dive of a place, in fact a big dive, but there’s not a terrible amount fo choice up there.

    Anyway, I see the Boks are living in my backyard… and training at the grounds of our arch-rivals.
    Would love to know which hotel they’re in – anybody got any ideas?

There are a lot of conflicting opinion’s on Ruan’s game, how was he honestly. I really feel for this guy!

  • VOLDY brings you the Springbok player ratings from their loss at Wembley.

    Ratings out of 10:

    Earl Rose – 6
    Nice touches with ball in hand, but his tactical use of the boot wasn’t good enough and isn’t strong enough in the air for an international fullback.

    Odwa Ndungane – 5
    Looked disinterested again and doesn’t have the strength, power or pace for an international winger. With the Boks on attack and in a hole, he simply lost the ball in contact too easily.

    Juan de Jongh – 6
    Finished well for the first try, but thereafter tended to hold on too long when had options out wide. Has a good break, but tries too often to take on defenders, who read him easily as the match went on.

    Wynand Olivier – 6
    Did all the basics of a No 12, something which Adi Jacobs can’t do for the Test team. His hit on former team-mate Derick Hougaard would’ve pleased him, but more importantly showed his defensive ability and physicality. Was also productive in setting up second phase, securing the ball well and setting a target for his forwards. A must starter for the remaining two Tests of tour.

    Jongi Nokwe – 7
    Looked dangerous with ball in hand on numerous occasions with his inside backs giving him plenty opportunities in the opening half. Chased well for his first try and was on hand for the second.

    Ruan Pienaar – 5
    An anomaly at flyhalf, does one decent act followed by something poor, but more negatives than positives. From the first kick-off opted to run from deep and handed Saracens three points inside the opening minute. Bettered Hougaard in the tactical kicking game when he did use the boot, but in the second half especially didn’t opt for territory enough. Is just too inconsistent all-round to start at 10 in Tests, and in his goal-kicking.

    Heini Adams – 6
    Taken off at half-time after making some sniping breaks, but his service lacked precision at times. Also doesn’t offer a decent kicking option, but probably should have been kept on as Francois Hougaard hadn’t had regular game-time at No 9 in ages.

    Ashley Johnson – 5
    Not as industrious as his fellow loose forwards. Contested a high ball well for Nokwe’s try, but also made some basic mistakes in decision-making when running from deep.

    Jean Deysel – 8
    Willing ball-carrier, but couldn’t benefit from a disorganised Bok attack at times. Strong defence and added some grunt around the contact points in a physical contest with his pack largely going backwards at the set-pieces. Will have made Peter de Villiers realise he was wrong to originally leave him out of the squad as Deysel must now be in Test contention.

    Dewald Potgieter – 6
    The captain made some good steals at the lineout, while was also solid at receiving kick-offs as Sarries attempted many straight down the middle. However, lacked discipline at the breakdown at times.

    Andries Bekker – 6
    Showed great pace in a run that could have resulted in a 75m try, but was also willing to do the hard work and play tighter without Rossouw starting. Taken off at half-time to save him for the Italy Test.

    Alistair Hargreaves – 4
    Late replacement for Danie Rossouw and on occasions didn’t even have the strength to clean out one player at ruck-time. Was tossed around and in grave need of a notable bulking course sometime very soon. Until then shouldn’t find himself in a Bok jersey again. More suited to the looser role when Rossouw came on.

    CJ van der Linde – 5
    Started strongly at scrum-time but worryingly off after 10 minutes as his injury worries look like they aren’t behind him.

    Adriaan Strauss – 6
    All over the park in the loose, but as the scrum creaked so the rest of his game faltered. Missed his jumpers more as the match went on.

    Heinke van der Merwe – 3
    Late replacement for Wian du Preez in starting his first game since 18 April, nearly seven months to the day. Had to move to tighthead with Van der Linde’s departure after 10 minutes, and struggled technically. This judgement is not his fault however, he’s not a No 3 and was an unfair position to put him in. Coach De Villiers must take the blame for the Bok scrum being marched back yet again as this was his selection.

    Subs:
    Bandise Maku – Not enough time to be judged.

    Wian du Preez – 5
    Came on for Van der Linde after initially being pulled from the starting XV. Solid with ball in hand, but with his tighthead struggling, couldn’t make an impact at scrum-time.

    Danie Rossouw – 6
    On at half-time for Bekker and as he only had 40 minutes should be able to start against Italy. Useful ball-carrier in getting his team over the advantage line.

    Davon Raubenheimer – Not enough time to be judged.

    Francois Hougaard – 3
    On at the start of the second half and his charged down kick brought Sarries back into the game via Ernst Joubert’s try. The Bok No 9 shouldn’t have gone into the wheel and made many errors in a poor half of rugby from a talented scrumhalf.

    Meyer Bosman – Not enough time to be judged.

    Riaan Viljoen – 4
    Some poor decisions at the back when a cool head was needed

    Ive heard one or 2 other comments that he was not good but I realy liked what I saw, not only his general play but his guts in doing it in a less than dominant team.
    I also think Andries Bekker has shown more grunt and willingness for the hard stuff in the last 3 games than Ive seen in 2 years from him
