    Yeah best you don’t.

    But tell her you are wasting money by getting the Sky package and then not using it 😉

    And the result should be NOT going to the braai NOT cancelling the package 😉

  • Ok here is a quick half summary:

    Started badly – kicking too much. Mathie as bad as usual. 15 minutes in, we changed around, Mathie started giving very quick service, Deysel is running into, over, through and top of anyone in front of him – absolutely brutal, the forwards are dominating, both in the loose and the set pieces, and the backs have great structure, despite Dumond.

    Dumond is as pathetic as ever, Mathie playing his best game, Murray very good, Deysel, Botes and Daniel are superb, and the T5, especially Skipper doing well.

    Losers – Jannie DuP getting the ball ripped by oppo 9, Dumond missing a tackle leading to a try, kicking awfully, basically just being himself. Stefan started poorly, but is improving.

    Lets hope we keep it up.

  • A great win there.

    A few massive positives, despite Griquas not being a champion team.

    Jean Deysel is a God amongst men. Skipper CAN actually throw straight and play a bit. Scott Mathie is NOT the worst scrumhalf to have ever lived. Swanepoel at 12 added great structure, as did the tactic of skipping Dumond, who did provide some nice moves in midfield.

    Carstens was man of the match, but if you ask Griquas, they will probably tell you that Deysel was the MVP.

  • @Big Fish (Comment 84) : Have to agree, just watched the match since I was sailing all day, and as big a fan I am of Deon, and as good a game as he played, Deysel quite simply deserved man of the match without doubt. Still very happy with the performance all around, and agree with the rest of your comments.
