Theres a Rose in Kimberley

Earl Rose has been given another chance to resurrect his rugby career in South Africa by signing a one year deal with the Griquas .

Rose who has a history of controversy and ill discipline was booted out of the Lions camp  coach after walking out on the unions 7’s squad at a tournament a few weeks ago, he also turned down an offer to play for the Leopards, he turned down the Leopards offer by not pitching up for a training session after agreeing to play.

It is alleged that Scottish sides Edinburgh and Glasgow Warriors were keen to sign Rose.

The signing of Rose seems strange as Griquas coach Dawie Theron is known as a no nonsense character and it will be interesting to see how this episode unfolds.

    Well I for one can’t see this working out…it’s either going to be a success or Theron will tear him a new one, he wont get away with the crap he did previously.

    Think the Sharks on loan over there are happy they can leave soon! 🙂

  • You okes need to be a little more open-minded about the Pearl. Many a good player has floundered in the quagmire of the Lions. He will do much better somewhere else

  • I thought the lyrics for the song was “there’s a rose in a fisted glove” not “there’s a rose in Kimberly” Mind you he does play with gloves so “there’s a rose in a fisted glove” but the next line will not rhyme with Kimberly
    with apologies to CSNY

  • Its difficult to be harsh on him , I have been a Rose fan hopefully he comes right at Griquas.Take lessons from Aplon , Jantjies, Killian guys smaller but tackle with heart.On attack he can be sublime.

  • How much is he paying them to let him play?

  • @CoffeeShopBok;-) (Comment 25) :

    Agreed 100%

    If they can work on how he positions his body in the tackle situation, then Griquas will have made a very good buy imho.
