Oh man, how do you call this one?

The realist in me says that the Bulls cannot possibly win every game on tour and that the Blues (or the Chiefs to follow) really have to beat them. Then again, on current form, it takes a brave man to bet against this Bulls side and they seem to have that killer instinct that really sets champion teams apart – they know how to win, even when they’re not playing well.

The Blues have blown hot and cold this year, pretty much as always. They do have the goods, though, to expose a Bulls defence that has been far from impressive so far this season. Then again, these days, it’s not really about how many tries you score against the Bulls, but rather about how many they score against you and the Blues may well find themselves in line for a hammering should the Bulls really click on attack.

    Well here is a copy of an email i just recived this afternoon after getting home from work.

    Obviously this guys doesn’t agree with you.

    Your mate craig joubert is the worst ref in pro rugby.
    Nobody destroys a game better than him .
    Please tell the git that he is not the star of the show and to let players play. The arsehole clearly needs to grasp the concept.
