  • Good to see Anton Verster back from his NMMU stint. Has he moved back to scrummy fulltime, because he was on the wing for NMMU.

  • @Pokkel (Comment 1) : @The Hobbit (Comment 2) : @robdylan (Comment 3) : he’s a tiny flanker, but he’s hard as nails, seen him cut down some big men. I’ll never forget his tackle on Plank, I thought Plank was gone and he would bounce him straight out of the way, but was a great tackle by Jason.

    Nice to see Matt Hankin in the Sarries side, part of an impressive England u20 loose trio at the JWC this year

  • Soo justin downey is not playing at all for the sharks poor him so it was a waste of time buying him

  • @Flippie (Comment 9) : yeah, cos it makes perfect sense to have a Currie Cup squad of exactly 22 players.

    Dude, either you are a very clever troll, or so stupid that I’m astonished that you can use the internet at all. I’m leaning towards the former, in which case your days here are numbered.

  • No rob I know that stokkies is injured. But I meant saying that I hope williams plays a similair game than stokkies and grow to be a good centre
