  • Not to upset any of the Newcastle folk, but in my day when reffing in SA still Newcastle had a bit of a reputation….

    Has that changed? I hope so.

    The last thing I would want to happen is see one of the Highlanders take out a Shark in an attempt to make name for himself amongst his friends.

Sharks forever!!! We have a great chance to win all the tournamnets we are involved in this year…Superrugby…Vodacom Cup and Currie Cup. I believe the union can pull it off…so exited!!!
