    Rob,

    I’ve been trying to find any news on Bredenhann returning to Australia. Can’t find anything… only news at the end of last year that he’s signed a contract with the Lions!

    Think you might’ve got that one wrong?

  • I hope Jaco Kriel has a good game. Really like him as a player.

    Will be rooting for the Shimlas. Looks like they have a decent team. Fanie vd Walt and Nico Scheepers are 2 guys I like there.

    Interesting to see Leyds at 15. Think he could shine in this possie and Luiters in ahead of Rademann – a bit of a surprise

  • remember that they’ve fucked up all the scoring rules for Varsity Cup this year, so don’t expect to make sense of what’s going on…

  • Shimlas have scored 2 tries (10 points) 2 conversions (6 points) and a penalty (2 points) to give them 18.

    Ikeys have scored 1 try for their five points.

    You just can’t make this shit up :)

  • @robdylan (Comment 10) : Ja saw his try. He’s an intelligent player but the only 2 Ikeys players I’ve enjoyed watching are no.13 and 11.

    I can see Lappies Labus keeping his pink shorts

    how did that oke go from being probably one of the top 3 performers in the Cheetahs CC team averaged over the campaign, to not even being in the Super Rugby wider training squad?

  • @robdylan (Comment 17) : @robdylan (Comment 18) : he went to a N Ntl sch either Pionier or Sarel Cilliers.

    I think its testimony to FS being fair to Griquas imports but 3 Shimlas must be fringe players for Cheetahs: Lappies, Jacobs and Scheepers

  • I watched the UCT/Shimlas game and I must say that the UCT winger Mark Winter really impressed me.

    He looks a strong runner, and broke tackles everytime he touched the ball.
