Last year we got two of our boys in the Sharks set up and had one play for the under 19’s. We also have the window to send them to other unions. We have had 10 play for the Griquas, Leopards, Pumas and Limpopo Blue Bulls. Our players are not solely reliant on he Sharks. We also had one player have a stint in the US.

  1. @Speartackle: Why confused? Sorry, silly question. If Im not mistaken, they are associated with the Norwegian Settlers Church, which explains the name or connection with “Viking”

  2. For me religion and politics need to stay out of sport, but that is just my opinion of course..

  3. @Grasshopper: There is no “religion” as you put it, in this. I think they merely initiated and facilitated this in an area which is economically depressed (even more than elsewhere) to offer young men some guidance and hope, who otherwise would have had nothing. And in that regard, im sure they do an amazing job.@Couchmavin: Not as if there are strong cricket (or rugby) franchises elsewhere- shocking. No wonder SA U19s were beaten by Zim and Namibia.@Speartackle: Ek het vanoggend wakker geword met die nuus dat ons voorgeslag, o.l.v Jan Van Riebeeck, reeds 2000 jr gelede in die Kaap geland het- met die opdrag om te vernietig- aldus die “minister” Wanneer het jy gese dat jou oupagrootjie die plaas by Oubaai gehad het? In die jaar 1000?

  4. @BOG: Hoekom staan jy so laat op? Ek wil sulke nuus vroeer hoor. Dink jy JVR se trawante was verantwoordelik vir Umtata High ook?

    Ek merk ook op dit gaan rof daar in Bloem met julle derbies……JF vs Sentraal…..kopstampe, vuishoue, balknype……skorsings.

  5. @BOG: Yeah, I get that but this whole movement to óur god is greater’, praying before and after games, taking the boys to happy clappy sessions etc is just not for me. Schools saying god supports them, does that mean he doesn’t support the opposition too. It’s just something that needs to stay out of sports. What if your players are Muslim, Hindi, Sikh or atheist…

  6. @Grasshopper: Well in the first place, I dont think this is the place to answer you in detail, otherwise the comments could end with 1000 or more. If Im not mistaken, the Genesis Trust is also involved in the caring of Aids patients- something that the State cannot do. Its called community involvement. Are you now really being critical of them because they are prepared to become involved? A case of “damned if you do, and damned if you dont” ? Im absolutely certain that they have never forced a single muslim, hindu, hari krishna or a delusional atheist to join them.@Speartackle: Nee, alle aanduidings was dat Onse Jan en sy trawante, was n vernietigende skepsel. Alle tekens van beskaafdheid waarmee hulle in kontak gekom het was vernietig- hoofwee, universiteite, fabrieke, ruimteprogramme, klerefabrieke- alles voor die voet, vernietig. So, in alle waarskynlikheid, het hulle Umtata High ook beetgekry.

  7. @BOG: You probably right, this is isn’t the place for religious debate. I’m just saying I think it’s gone over the top in some schools, everything in moderation for me.

  8. @Green Mamba: Guys???? Bog is feminine…..she writes the speeches for the DA leaders in the Cape……but she does know a little about rugby…very little

  9. @Green Mamba: How about some bi-lingualism ? Or even beter, Tri-lingualism? Eu falar Portugues? But I think that commenting on Jan Van Riebeeck, Afrikaans/Nederlands, is the most appropriate. When we get to the 1820 Settlers, I shall switch to the English vernacular.

  10. @Andre T: @BOG: I have been following this site for a few months now and seen a lot of politics being discussed here. Schoolboys do read this and I feel it’s inappropriate. But it isnt up to me. There are places to set those frustrations free

  11. Lol……ek gaan nou bietjie iewers solank begin kuier. Baie lus om Umhlanga toe te ry voor ek Westville gaan kyk. Lekker daar in een van die koffiehuise sit en dan moet ek eerlik wees……het nou n dating site gejoin hier en flippet die vrouens van Durban Noord en Umhlanga is mooi….maar hulle hou dadelik op gesels as ek sê ek is van Toti. Ek het gister vir een gesê ek bly op Mount Edgecombe en wragtig ek en sy gaan nou n wyntjie drink.

    En ek het gedink Pretoria is snobisties

  12. @Speartackle: I think I must start my West Rand Diary again and then you do a KXN one. Maybe Beet will give us a weekly thread for it. You are close by there now so go and discuss it with him.

    Oh yes and for your date, don’t forget to spray that Jade East I bought you as a going away pressie

  13. @Andre T: And further down the coast, you have “Welkom/ Vd Bijl by the sea”, oka, Margate. Se vir Spear as hy verveeld raak om altyd met dieselfde klomp te baklei, moet hy Margate probeer.And they are mostly walk overs.Even with fake Chinese after shave, he could get a date there.

  14. @Greenman: He never invites them over..he always goes to their place..else he would never get a second date!..and he can makes a quick exit if needed and not be stuck!..

  15. @Greenman: Careful for double talk. I just hope he uses his red 1970 Ford, 3 L, wide silver mags the one with lime fur on the dash, and a dog with a turning head in the back window, rather than his Bantam bakkie. The Ford should be an instant hit in Margate- they might even think he is a breker or damduiker from Brakpan. And if he wears his fishnet vest, well then its a certainty- elbow out the window. In Margate, he would be regarded as intellectually superior.

  16. @Greenman: three points on the “politics” you refer to:
    1. Politics are forced into sports – not talking about it is criminal.
    2. Schoolboys (and girls) are far from stupid and sometimes see and hear and experience and know more than we do.
    3. Opinions are raised here – some contain fact, and some fiction (as can be experienced through the comments of @Speartackle and @Andre T). Which is which remains a challenge – for all, even the dual personalities.

  17. @Grasshopper: When last did you listen to a prayer by the boys. It is not about please support us. It is about thanking God for the opportunity to participate – not to make one team win. Nothing wrong with that!
