South Africa stun Scotland with eight-try romp in Port Elizabeth

I thoroughly enjoyed the game and I'm really excited to see what the Boks can achieve over the next year heading into the WC. I do feel for Scotland because after a touring leg that stretched four different countries on three different continents, I'm sure they were beat to hell by the time they ran out in NM Bay Stadium. Scotland were beaten physically from the opening whistle (...mostly, I really hope Coenie can step his game up).

I didn't appreciate the shot on le Roux, and I'm sure he didn't either, which caused him to leave the field for a bit. I'm terribly one-sided with the Boks so maybe it wasn't on purpose. But I sure felt like it was at the time. Fair play to Scotland overall, I hope they continue to improve and start seeing some favorable results.

South Africa maintain home record with dramatic last ditch win over Wales

Fantastic job dragging an entire team through the mud to console your fears that you might actually have a hotheaded player on your hands with Liam Williams. I'd take a jab to the ribs any day over a sliding elbow to the jaw while looking the other direction.

I'm so thankful for that tackle from Williams and so is Steyn, that would've been tough to slot from the corner.

Springboks brush aside Welsh challenge with convincing win in Durban

I miss PDV. He couldn't coach to save his life and it depressed me on a regular basis, but he sure could hold one hell of a press conference.

Haha love the name. The bokke need to work on fitness, doesn't help having hulking forwards if they're just walking around and laying on top of each other at every ruck for the last ten minutes. Looking forward to the next game. Go Bokkies.

Midweek Madness - Player falls to floor after worst fight ever

Its a joke guys, and a pretty funny one if you ask me. We've all seen videos of rugby fights involving the Island nations, and they definitely don't go like this.

UCT Ikeys win 2014 Varsity Cup final with unbelievable comeback

He released an official statement saying that he had been pepper sprayed just prior and couldn't see who was attacking him. Her statement was absolutely ridiculous claiming self-defense and that she was just trying to stop the brawl. Nobody should hit anyone over the back of the head 15 times with a shoe and expect a clean getaway.

If you'd like a link to the story and both his and her statements I can find it quickly. As a general rule of thumb, I feel people should avoid wading into mass brawl and beating people over the head. Damn shame it came to all that.

Carlin Isles dropped ball blooper ruins great fifteens debut try

I disagree Matt. Gio is a fantastic player but he's had his clock pretty thoroughly cleaned a few times and I dare say he would've walked a straighter line after standing up if he were a little heavier. Again my point was not weight on attack guys, it was on defense. Nothing can hold down a player with heart, but physics comes knocking every so often; in the case of smaller guys like Aplon, Kolbe, and Isles, it knocks a little harder.
