Are the Bulls unstopable?

After this weekend I have to pose the question. In my total unbiased (NOT!) opinion, I don’t think Freestate can stop them. I must say that Rassie is a class act and if anyone has to beat the Bulls he’d probably be my 1st choice. One tends to forget that he was in the all-conquering side of ’98.

I was pissed off at Bakkies Botha though. He always seems to be prodding and teasing the opposition. This reminds of the dark days. Heyneke should address this issue ASAP. It is something that White Jake should also keep an eye on.

I can’t wait for the Super12 next year. I know these are huge words, but with Heyneke at the helm I really think we can win it. He is such an astute tactician and we do have the players. Right now the only real weaknesses that we have are the wings. I wish we could get our hands on Ashwin!

Geo Cronje in the UK!

I’ve just seen that Geo Cronje has joined Harlequins in the UK. Those of you that are interested in rugby and the Boks will know that he was involved in a ‘race’ issue in South-Africa last year. At the time I was very pissed off at the English media (see my BBC post) for the way they treated this story. They always make it sound as if all Afrikaners are racist (or as Ali G says: racialistic). In true fashion though, now that Geo will be offering his services to an English club, not a word is said. Anyway, even though I know Geo has made the best choice for himself, I do think he (and his beard!) will be missed sorely at Loftus. I thought he brought some real character to the pro game.

New contract

Well my current contract finishes this week so I’ve started looking again. The market seems quite active though so hopefully it should be OK. There’s a lot of talk around “Design Patterns” though. I’m quite keen to get an insight into this ASAP, so I’ve just bought a recommended book about it. If anyone knows of any descent resources, please let me know.
