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

About the blog

Do you talk to people about your opinions on rugby and the person you are talking to isn’t into rugby. Do you feel like you need to talk to someone who likes rugby and you can’t find anyone to engage with? I feel like that, So I’ve decided to start a blog and I encourage you to make comments.

I talk about the build up to the event and the event and after the Rugby world Cup.

“Yeah, so what!”

Before you leave, you may want to know it will be from a fans point of view. If you are a fan then it’ll be from your point of view.

I am Steve, I have played rugby, I was an ok open-side flanker. I played for Edenvale Rugby Club in Johannesburg, South Africa , I also played for Ballymena u20’s in Northern Ireland for one season back in 1993. I now live in England and I have been coaching a youth team at Southend Rugby Club for the last 7 years.I am a R.F.U registered referee and have been refereeing games for 4 years.

My dad took my brother and I to Ellis park stadium for our first time back in 1983. There was still a lot of building materials around the ground as the new stadium had not long been completed. My dad insisted that my brother and I were Orange Free State supporters as we were both born in the Free State. My Dad supported the home team Transvaal/The Lions, he still does today. I support the Lions too and have done so probably since 1987.

My brother and I watched part of that first game then joined all the other boys whose main interest was running onto the pitch as the final whistle blew. That was my introduction to rugby but as I got older so my interest and love for the game grew.

Nowadays watching 5 matches on one Saturday is the norm for me.

I like sharing my points of view on matches, players, coaches, incidents, moments. I love rugby, I am very interested in other people’s points of view even if I don’t agree with them.
