  • No offense to the laaitie, but I rather fancied Boeta over Bosch. Perhaps some time off will have been good for Bosch. If he makes an actual honest tackle, I may crack open one of my few remaining beers. Solid bench in my humble opinion. Hope the forwards are equal to their WP counterparts in the scrum.

  • Rasta Rasivenge…and rain. Doesn’t bode well, but the rain may be an equalizer. I see Ben10 off to London Irish. Its a pity he never really flourished at the Sharks.

  • So going for posts twice in the last 8 minutes actually cost us, seeing that our maul was overly dominant and we were getting penalty after penalty for wp not being able to defend it successfully.

  • I missed this one- sad to see a late loss, but 4 tries is great to see. One thing I’ve noticed is sometimes we are too reliant on Bosch’s boot. Preferring to go for 3 even a long ways out when maybe pushing for 5 or 7 is the better idea. Not his fault, just the way we base a game plan around him. Man I knew we’d regret letting go of Roos.
