Hi everyone. Just thought I’d post a little reminder that the Super Rugby semi finals are being played tomorrow.

The Reds play the Blues in what is sure to be a ripper of a game as both sides are known to play a very entertaining brand of ruggas while at the same time they both know how to box clever when the situation dictates.

The match kicks off at 11:40 am SA time so make sure that all your errands are complete, the dog has been walked and the kids have been dispatched to those friends who don’t care much for that “barbaric” game.

Reds – 15 Jono Lance, 14 Rod Davies, 13 Anthony Faingaa, 12 Ben Tapuai, 11 Digby Ioane, 10 Quade Cooper, 9 Will Genia, 8 Radike Samo, 7 Beau Robinson, 6 Scott Higginbotham, 5 James Horwill (c), 4 Rob Simmons, 3 Greg Holmes, 2 Saia Faingaa, 1 Ben Daley. Subs: 16 James Hanson, 17 Guy Shepherdson, 18 Adam Wallace-Harrison, 19 Jake Schatz, 20 Liam Gill, 21 Ian Prior, 22 Will Chambers

 Blues – 15 Jared Payne, 14 Joe Rokocoko, 13 Benson Stanley, 12 Luke McAlister, 11 Rene Ranger/Lachie Munro, 10 Stephen Brett, 9 Alby Mathewson, 8 Peter Saili, 7 Luke Braid, 6 Jerome Kaino, 5 Ali Williams, 4 Chris Lowrey, 3 John Afoa, 2 Keven Mealamu (c), 1 Charlie Faumuina.Subs: 16 Tom McCartney, 17 Tevita Mailau, 18 James King/Matt Luamanu, 19 Daniel Braid, 20 Chris Smylie, 21 Ranger/Munro, 22 Winston Stanley/Sherwin Stowers

The DHL Stormers face the Crusaders at Newlands in what is being billed as the game of the weekend but you would be forgiven for thinking that the game is going to be played by Schalk Brits against the Cape Crusaders by the amount of newspaper and blog space has been given to them.

The Crusaders team has  shown utter class in making the semis as they have basically gotten their having played zero home games while the Stormers have had to give almost every single male in Cape Town the number 10 jersey such injury hoodoo attached to it. (I’m sure I saw Duvanage pass the ball from a ruck and then sprint to receive it as flyhalf in one game)

Stormers – 15 Conrad Jantjes, 14 Gio Aplon, 13 Jaque Fourie, 12 Jean de Villiers, 11 Bryan Habana, 10 Peter Grant, 9 Dewaldt Duvenage, 8 Nick Koster, 7 Francois Louw, 6 Schalk Burger (c), 5 Andries Bekker, 4 Rynhardt Elstadt, 3 Brok Harris, 2 Tiaan Liebenberg, 1 Wicus Blaauw
Subs: 16 Deon Fourie, 17 Steven Kitshoff, 18 Anton van Zyl, 19 Schalk Brits, 20 Louis Schreuder, 21 Juan de Jongh, 22 Johann Sadie.

Crusaders – 15 Tom Marshall, 14 Sean Maitland, 13 Robbie Fruean, 12 Sonny Bill Williams, 11 Zac Guildford, 10 Dan Carter, 9 Andy Ellis, 8 Kieran Read, 7 Richie McCaw (capt), 6 George Whitelock, 5 Sam Whitelock, 4 Brad Thorn, 3 Owen Franks, 2 Corey Flynn, 1 Wyatt Crockett. Subs: 16 Quentin MacDonald, 17 Ben Franks, 18 Luke Romano, 19 Matt Todd, 20 Kahn Foutali’i, 21 Matt Berquist, 22 Ryan Crotty

The point I’m trying to make is lets forget the sideshows and look forward to watching the semi finals of the toughest regional competition in the world.

  • I agree. Who cares about the sideshow. Let the people employed to take care of those matters enjoy their job. Just enjoy the rugby.

    Personally I’m putting aside my differences to root for the Stormers…

  • Stormers! You guys may be my least favourite SA union but I’ll always back a South African team against foreign opposition.

  • @Clayton(PJLD) (Comment 21) : @Clayton(PJLD) (Comment 21) : Seriously! But don’t read to much into it. It’s just because the Western Province is the only SA province with a big rugby union* which I haven’t lived in!

    (* And I tend to back the smaller unions ahead of most other teams because I like underdog teams)

  • @Clayton(PJLD) (Comment 23) : “Least favourite” does not mean Hate – i would not say the bulls are my least favourite team, because there’s nothing “favourite” about them to me – oh wait – favourite to hate perhaps! 😆

  • @Ice (Comment 25) : Agreed and it’s pretty much impossible to hate a team that contains Schalk Burger, Jean de Villiers, Jacques Fourie and Gio Aplon.

    @diablo (Comment 2) : Pity that mistake was corrected as I would also have lmao! 😀

    @Ice (Comment 4) : At the rate the Stormers are losing flyhalves you’ll see the ‘Saders No10 in the Stormers jersy very soon I’m sure!

    @vanmartin (Comment 26) : Nah I think Ice only has eyes for a certain Mr. Carter. 😆 😆 😆
