The players, teams , issues involved with the Rugby World Cup 2015


Feeling depressed because of the Springboks

Players that played so well in Superugby looked terrible against an out of form Wales. Springbok rugby is in an awful way…….it needs to be fixed.

I feel a bit embarrassed for writing an article bigging up Rohan Janse van Rensburg because he had a bad game. His first Superugby game wasn’t good either and then he made a comeback and became one of the stand-out players in Superugby.

I am sure most Bok supporters are feeling the pain as this year comes to an end. It has been awful.

In addition to those performances was an outstanding victory over the Wallabies in Brisbane in 2013. Brisbane a city where South Africa had not beaten Australia since 1971 Continue reading
