  1. There you go a school that made a mistake and then do the right thing by apologising for their mistake. As long as they learn from this good on them.

    As for Mr. Jonker I have a lot off respect for him. Three years ago he had the whistle at Riebeek Kasteel in one off my sons under 11 game, barefoot and all. The way he helped the props to keep them stable so we could play as one of the props just wasn’t strong enough was awesome. I experienced him as a no nonsense kind off guy but very fair.

  2. I think what Mr Naidoo came to realise, is that having an international referee, albeit a former one, officiating at a SBR match, even if he is connected to one of the schools involved, is by far better than having any other “neutral” referee. The guy is a professional, period.

    Ben Vorster had a similar experience once in Standerton with Mark Lawrence – I think it was one of the few SBR matches where no one complained about the referee!

    But good on Mr Naidoo for manning up.

  3. It will be a waste to not have him referee any SBR nevermind his connection. The man is a pro. Why waste! I will need a Blog to apologies to all the referees I wanted to moer. Last Monday was not an exception. Nothing personal and short lived. :mrgreen:

  4. @Greenman: Hi Greenman, we busy buying Silverspoon Wors. It comes with its own Chef. Spear is drinking Pimms with his Pink Shirt. I’m taking Spear through to the Hilton vs MHS tomorrow. Hopefully he won’t lose his wors, I mean his way.

  7. I’m sorry I missed that wors…. Must make a plan for next time. However – looks like we won’t be doing it at Kearsney – my boy didn’t crack the nod there for a scholarship unfortunately. Made it thorough to KZN trials in two weeks time representing the PADSA u13 A side though. Holding thumbs for making it to the KZN Craven week u13 side. I’ll let you chaps know how it goes, and maybe see some of you there???

  8. @Greenman: Morning Greenman, great result for GW. Flip man, you can’t take Spear anyway. Definitely not to a Silver Spoon occasion. He knocked a guys food out his hands and then refused to replace it. He just picked it up off the floor and gave back to him. House lost, both sides fought right to the end. Great game. Lovely day at Hilton yesterday.

  9. @Bush: strange chap that Spear but I reckon he has got an eye for opportunities and doesnt miss any :mrgreen: Thanks on GW. I do pick the wrong games to go and watch when I decide to feel the sea breeze. It looks like the Midlands teams love sharing the mix. One for me and one for you. Now my turn etc

  10. Back in Toti from SilverSpoonville and I had one of the best weekends of my life…thank you Mr & Mrs Bush and family for treating me like a king

    I’m a bit tired today after the very calm weekend and nursing a black eye from a stone that hit me whilst driving Bush’s Gator….we also had to fight off a burglar at 03h00 this morning who wanted to come and steal a silver piece of wors

    The atmosphere at Gilfillians was electric and well done to Hilton….the spectators were impeccable and crowd control was pefect

    McCulleys wors rolls very delicious …..

    Tough luck to Michaelwors you fought hard and I cant wait for the return game at Meadows

    House 2 3 House
