Olimp3kSignUp jan19For the better part of this Super Rugby campaign coach Rassie must have had tears in his eyes and no hair left to pull out. Yet both the Sharks and Stormers have proven there could be a proudly South African template to going toe-to-toe with the Kiwi’s. The Bulls, Stomers, Sharks and Lions have also all proven very competitive overseas.

Olimp3kSignUp jan19It was a Steven King script, directed by Alfred Hitchcock, produced by Tarrantino and starring Richie Mo’unga as the anti-hero and Elton Jantjies as the villain as the Bulls were massacred at Loftus on Friday and the Lions almost ended up butchering things at Ellis on Saturday. Here’s how things went down in Week 13 of Super Rugby.

Olimp3kSignUp jan19It was another crazy weekend where cards were handed out like it was someone’s birthday, the mightiest of them all got a huge fright at their fortress and amidst the draws there was a slow-mo sprint from Thor! All in weekend’s work of Super Rugby…

Olimp3kSignUp jan19The Lions got chowed in the real lion’s den whilst the Sharks swam better in foreign waters. The Kiwi’s put on a show but there were some local pretenders as well, as Happy Feet Willemse and Dancing Dillyn Leyds gave the Capetonians something to smile about. Here’s how Week 11 of Super Rugby went down…

Olimp3kSignUp jan19Few things beat the peace and tranquillity of an Easter weekend visiting with family in Hermanus. Cue waking up to the sound and smell of the ocean, browsing around interesting markets in the area and having an epic fish braai with enough Kabeljou to feed all the apostles and their plus one’s. Of course, there are a select few of us that can allow something to interfere with this tranquillity…

Olimp3kSignUp jan19The theme park that is Super Rugby is well and truly still open for business and delivering weekly thrills and spills. The Sharks decided to clown around in Durban whilst the Stormers pulled off a magic trick that Dynamo would be proud of by picking up a victory in Australasia.

Olimp3kSignUp jan19It was a jungle out there this past weekend. The Sharks bit back by dispatching Swys’ cubs in the concrete jungle whilst the Tahs were left singing the Blues. Elsewhere the Bulls bashed and bullied their way to a 10-point lead but when all was said and done the calf ended in the pit. In Melbourne the Wolves were finally put down.

Olimp3kSignUp jan19Steven King as writer and Spielberg as director wouldn’t be able to script things better than what transpires in Super Rugby at times. With action, drama and intrigue here’s my critic’s review of this particular miniseries.

Olimp3kSignUp jan19I’m sure you noticed those people, or been one of them yourself, who flashes the Colgate whites and waves at every fellow motorist passing you in the game reserve. Or they enthusiastically greet any and all passers-by whilst strolling along the beach (often even elaborating on fishing conditions despite not knowing your Shad from a Marlin).

Olimp3kSignUp jan19In American sport dramatic sport comebacks lead to epic sport movies – in the Southern Hemisphere we call it just another week of Super Rugby.

Olimp3kSignUp jan19Here’s how my Monday morning around the water cooler chat would sound after Round 4 of Super Rugby.
