The South African Rugby Union (SARU) today moved to dispel rumours of a rift in the Springbok Team Management, that has been reported on in various publications over the last two days.
Andy Marinos, SARU’s National Teams Manager who accompanied the Springboks on the away leg of the Vodacom Tri-Nations, said on Monday any such rumours are unfound and unwarranted.

“I’ve been with the Springboks for almost three weeks now and can categorically state there is no rift in the Management Team,” said Marinos.

“In my various discussions with Bok coach Peter de Villiers, his assistant coaches Dick Muir and Gary Gold, as well as senior team members John Smit and Victor Matfield, it’s never once come up that there are problems in the camp.

“For three weeks in a row we have not played well and made it harder for ourselves by playing with only 14 players on the field at crucial time during the games, away from home.”

  • Usually when something is true the sequence of events is.

    1) Rumours in the media player is going to leave a team, coach is going to be fired etc.

    2) Management rubbish the rumours.

    3) Rumour persist.

    4) rumours revealed as being the truth

    5) everything crumbles.

  • If. But. Who. Where. What. When. You can’t honestly say that”nothing” is wrong. Of course something is wrong! It could be a simple something. It does not have to be a complex something. But something, is still something.

  • Blah blah blah
    Gary Gold is VERY good mates with Gavin Rich and Tank Lanning. Isn’t it strange they have been punting Gold as the one behind the ‘structured’ approach when in fact Gary Gold is not a good coach at all.
    If anyone can tell me when he ever did well as a coach I will gladly admit that I’m wrong.
    He was useless at London Irish and he was even worse at WP.

    Are you seriously naive enough to believe that?

    I’m sorry to say this, but that is something that I honestly expect only the alcoholic and unschooled to believe.

    No organisation with this much capital invested in it will allow such a situation arise.

    I bet you think the Da Vinci Code is a work of non-fiction too?

    That was my point – you really don’t have an excuse for that kind of naivete.

    The extreme nature of your reaction to PDV leads to me to suspect transference.:evil:

  • Transference is a phenomenon in psychoanalysis characterized by unconscious redirection of feelings from one person to another. One definition of transference is “the inappropriate repetition in the present of a relationship that was important in a person’s childhood.”

    IT explains a lot though. All those hours surfing the net in the guise of a social life… After the right hand gets sore, I guess one gravitates to those right-wing sites which proclaim that the moon landing was filmed in Cincinatti and so on.
