This has been long overdue – and I think its time to introduce you to one of Sharksworld ol’faithfulls. We all “know”Pokkel and he has been around for ages! Alway ready with a quirky comment! Sharksworld has asked him a couple of question – just to try and figure out if this guy is sane or not! So – here we go – let me know…can we trust this guy? :)

Name and where do you live?

Charl – Newcastle

What do you do for a living?

Financial Planner

Who do you support and why?

My wife and child because I love them and I have to.

The Sharks and Boks because I’m a born and bred Natalian….oops Kwa-Zulu Natalian

What was your most memorable rugby moment (personally experienced or a team / player?

The 1990 Currie Cup Final when Watson scored THAT try.

The 1995 RWC final. We were playing the unbeatable All Blacks and won against all odds.

What is your Dream team (old and current players)?

15. Andre Joubert

14. James Small

13 Danie Gerber

4. Mark Andrews

3. BJ Botha

2. Uli Schmidt

1. Os du Randt .

I’m staying local here no foreign players.

Which co-bloggers opinion do you value the Most? Why?

Morne. He doesn’t just give opinions but he also backs it up with facts. Morne for Bok coach!!

What is the biggest sacrifice you’ve made to watch a rugby match?

It’s every weekend because I married a wife that doesn’t like rugby and always wants to

do something else on weekends.

Who is your least liked player?

Brian Habana for scoring the try that we don’t mention on Sharksworld.

Who are your favourite 3 players of all time and why?

The Rolls Royce Andre Joubert. Die Lem Henry Honiball. The new Legend Pat Lambie

If you could have a blogger deleted, who would it be and why?

I refuse to answer that question due to fear of intimidation.

If you could select a coach (past or present) to be with Your team – who would it be?

Kitch Christie

How did you end up on SW, wasting valuable company time?

I clicked on robdylan’s name on Voldy and voila.

Who is your favourite referee – current or old?

Andre Watson

Why Rugby ?

Is there any other sport?

If you could play – what position would suite you best and why?

Scrumhalf because I’m a kortgat.

Do you have any pre-match routines (home or going to the game)?

As I said before. Beer – check. Biltong – check

How do you react when your team loses?

Every heard of ‘dronk verdriet’

What is your most memorable rugby moment ever?

Being at Soccer City for John Smit’s 100th

What is your favourite rugby ground?

Kingspark and now Soccer City.
