The Real Face behind Sharksworld


Written by Iza Loubser (Ice)

Posted in :Meet the bloggers, Original Content on 24 Aug 2010 at 13:19

Okay fans, I have come up with a bit of an idea – just for fun. A lot of us on here have known each other for quite a few years. Others come and go, but the core seems to stick around and yeah, I suppose you can say we are like family!

What I would like to do is, every week or every second week, feature three or so regular bloggers in a Ice- exclusive “Column” (Hopefully this will score me more SW points to go from Super 14 player to Coach or something decent! ) :idea:;-)

So – as new bloggers join us, we will feature them too. :grin:

Okay – I have not all my ducks in a row yet. But the idea is for you to send me a little bio and some supporting picks. There will also be a bit of a Q & A section. (I still need to work out a nice little template) – Here is where YOU guys come into the whole idea:

I need questions that can be asked – something lekker and nice stuff that you’s like to know about your fellow bloggers – KEEP IT CLEAN though – this is not a “dating” spot! :twisted::mrgreen:

Also – before we start – I need to know if you are interested in contributing towards this? No need to continue if there is only 2 people that will participate….also if you have nice ideas for this – please pass it on! [email protected] or you can comment below!

Okay – so what do you say? Yay or nay?? :?::grin:

Had three Natal schools players in that team, plus my sister who later on got selected for Natal schools team.

    Kuswag was like the Bulls are to the Sharks to us.

The match was actually stopped for a while, because the kids had to calm their parents down.

It was the here after I left school, I was supporting my sister and the woman turned round and said: “That’s my daughter you’re talking about.” and I looked straight at her and said, “Well, it’s still true.” :lol: She was not happy. It really makes me think of the Bulls and the Sharks.

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 57) : Nope, they were bloody good though so I can see how you would think that… their rugby team weren’t bad though, as I said our sucked. I was in Durban North Collage. Usually our sport sucked, but then my sister and I came to the school and it all changed. :cool: No really, our school is a little sad when it comes to sport… and most other things. But for some reason our Netball team did a little better when we were there.

    I think in 2002 we won a game against you at your school, but it was a friendly. Like a pre-season type of match. My sister broke her elbow in that match when a girl took her legs out from under her. She could barely move her arm, but her team mates didn’t allow her to sit the rest of the match out. She got Man – of – the Match. We had just started going to the school and didn’t know how big a deal it was, but when they basically carried her of on their shoulders, we knew. :smile:

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 67) : Yip, probably because we didn’t even play in the same devision that you did. We didn’t have a good enough team to have a first team. We probably just played all the 2nd or 3rd teams. Not that it was surprising, we only had about three different teams. Two in different age groups and one made up of all the guys in the school that could pass and catch a ball, but hey we did have one guy that got selected for Natal, I don’t know what happened to him.

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 73) : Unfortunately as far as I know, School sport in other areas in the country is way more professional than it is here. I went to primary school in a small town in the free state, and our netball team was run more professionally than any of the teams here in Natal. Also we got smashed in provincial games. I don’t know how it was at Kuswag, seeing as you actually had good sport teams, but our coaches was far from professional.

    Our school was so laid back, I sometimes wanted to go back to school when I was on vacation. So maybe my school aren’t such a great example.
