Well guys, it’s obviously pretty quiet out there at the moment.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to wish all our readers and contributors a very merry Christmas and all the best for the new year. Thanks to all for your unwavering support over the course of another long year.

We look forward to bringing you the best news, views, opinions and inside info as we can, both from the Sharks camp and the wider rugby world in 2010. I’ll still be checking in and posting the odd story over the next few days, but we’ll be back in full swing again in January, when the Sharks (and other teams) resume their training.

God bless and travel safely.

Cheers
Rob

  • Merry Christmas Everyone!

    We will have a white Christmas here too and I am surviving the rugby withdrawls w/ Setanta although they aren’t a 100% answer as they tend to show more soccer than rugby.

    If only rugbyzone showed Hcup and Top14 as well, I’d renew my subscription there in a heartbeat.

  • @rekinek (Comment 29) : :lol: no excuses either, not like they have to move the snow very far, just to the water front and into the water. Main Street was never all that wide, Annapolis is a Colonial town, Main Street is the same width it was in the 18th century. Cool that you found the downtown camera, I’ll let you know next time I am there and wave to you. :lol:

  • @robdylan (Comment 30) : I see that impression of Government employees and civil servants is a universal concept. :lol: I’d like to make it easy on you Rob, but most businesses in the Washington DC area follow the Federal lead when it comes to shutting down their offices, so a vast majority of the offices in the area were closed too. Since most of the private business around here is in the IT field (like yourself :wink: ) yes, you are 100% correct, there are significantly more idiots on the road. :lol:

So I hope to either see you then or that you might travel here again in 2010. Actually September may be a great time to meet more of the Sharksworld England based bloggers. Maybe a premiership match or something.

  • Hi guys, I watched the Touch Rugby at Diaz Beach today. Rob Louw had an invitational team playing against the winners of todays leg (Rob is apparently still in USA). Team consisted of Brussow, Vlok, Braam v Straaten, Morgan Newman, Joe Pieterson, Robert Ebersohn, Sarel Pretorius and YES Louis Ludik. He played with a heavy knee brace on his right knee, but appeared to have no real hassles with his knee. He was on the field more often due to the presence of the two oupa’s (Vlok and Braam) :smile: He still has 6 weeks till kick off, so hope he will be available……if he is going to be with the Sharks I might add. Damn, its lonely here (on the blog)

  • First, I want to thank Rob for providing us a little place on the web where we can share our passion and views about the Sharks and Boks in 2009. Second, I want to thank each and every one of my fellow bloggers for your friendship and incredibly valuable input that each provides on a very regular basis. Living in the Western Hemisphere, it is difficult to say the least, to keep up with rugby world wide, and certainly very difficult to keep up with my favourite teams. This site and each one of you allows me to be a passionate and informed supporter.

    For 2010, we sometimes forget how lucky we are as Sharks supporters. It really has been a long time since we started a season without high expectations. Each year, we have a legitimate shot at winning both the Super 14 and Currie Cup. This year as always looks rosy, with a little help from Lady Luck, we should be celebrating a great year 365 days from now.

    Happy new year and all the very best to everyone for 2010! Be well!

    I couldn’t agree more. And aside from the Bulls who also go into each competition with a realistic opportunity to do well, how many other teams have the same feelings of optimism?

    Certainly not the Reds, Force, Cheetahs, Province??, Lions, Highlanders?

    Tough draw in 2010, but the Bulls had the 5 week overseas tour in 2007 and 2009 and won both. Not in insurmountable hurdle!

  • @Baldrick (Comment 78) : I’m not optimistic about the 2010 season. Sorry, I’d really like to be, but I don’t see enough real change in the squad. Sure, it’s nice to (allegedly) have Alberts to add loose forward depth, but we still have no flyhalves.
