  • I almost didn’t recognise Ethienne Reyneke the other day in a Vodacom Cup game. It seems ironic that he’s moved to Cape Town and no longer uses peroxide.

  • Firstly I wouldn’t be so quick to write off the Stormers; this is going to be an epic game (I hope) – I think The Bulls will eventually win, but it won’t be a blowout…

    Juan De Jongh – its criminal having a player of his calibre on the bench – I rate him highly – would make place for him in the starting 22, he’s too good not to have in the team – even if he is on the wing in place of out of form Habana.

    CJ on the bench, is he supposed to be the trump card to match the Bulls physicality? He had his best game for the Stormers in the number 3 jumper, he is about as good as John Smit on loosehead – not chuffed to see Smit at loosehead this weekend – but Beast deserves a 60min rest (HE IS A TRUMP CARD)… Looking forward to seeing The Shark squad post Smit – Burden getting more game time, as well as Van Staden (understand he is nursing) – no discredit to John and his awesome accomplishments, but in terms of pure ability, we do have better.

  • @DarkDestroyer (Comment 14) : Wicus Blaauw, altho not the type of scrummer you’d want to write home about, has managed to unsettle the big Bulls TH Werner Kruger in the past. I think the Stormers are banking on Blaauw either doing the same thing or at the very worst pulling off a Bill Young Oscar winning performance in terms of fooling the ref. This frontrow battle will be an interesting contest.

    Well said young man. The Bulls don’t lose many home games and they will really be hurting after their loss against the Highlanders!!

    I think its going to be a very close match!!

  • @DarkDestroyer (Comment 22) : If he comes in a year or so the sharks can offer him a starting 15 spot for every week. Can the stormers do that? I don’t think so.

    Clutching at straws mate!!

    TWG13 will probably leave at the end of this season. If he does De Jongh will take his place.

    I am sure he will stay in CT to infinity and beyond!! 😈

  • out of a sharks point of view – a 0 – 0 draw would be the best result. or maybe, just maybe a bulls victory…

    but hey, dont throw away the draw idea… 😈
