Boishaai – Paul Roos 2019

Brugstraat ready to “ontplof!”

Paul Roos will be desperate to bounce back after they let Paarl Gim get away from them on the scoreboard towards the end of last weekend’s match. HJS Paarl Boy’s High have been waiting a long time to set the record straight after last year’s big defeat at the hands of the Maroon Machine. The match will be broadcast live on Supersport on Saturday 25 May 2019.

  4. @Wondermaar: Paul Roos gaan eerskomende Saterdag baie beter wees as teen Gim, hulle het die kwaliteit spelers. Hulle het Saterdag vir die eerste keer die seisoen teenstand gekry. Het hul vorige wedstryde met ‘n gemiddelde telling van 52-9 gewen. Ek dink hulle was onkant gevang deur die tempo, fisiese komponent en dat hul op die agtervoet moes speel, waaraan hulle nie gewoond was nie. Hulle kan terug bons.

  5. @Jan Kriel: PRG sit with a problem at 12 and 13. They lost Reagen, Ruben and Bocks since last year, it makes it very difficult. They have an awesome pack and Boishaai are going to struggle to compete at the line outs. Still PRG will have to make a plan at 12 and 13,if Ruben can’t play and I believe he won’t be, they are going to struggle against Bocks and Horn. I think ten man rugby is their best option just like they did in the SANIX final. I do think they will be better this weekend and the score should be much closer. After last year Boishaai will take any win, even one point. This is going to be a huge game for both teams the loser will be under big pressure and looking at how Bishops and Bosch are doing there is still very bug games ahead for everybody in the Cape.

  7. @PaarlBok: Jy is mos nou belaglik daar is mos nou geen kans dat Boishaai met 50 punte sal wen nie !! Wie ook al wen gaan nie met meer as 6 punte wen nie . Paul Roos is briljante span ( hulle is dan wereld kampioene ) en was net verras teen Gim . Deesdae kan jy maklik ver verloor as jy net 5% af is ! Beide spanne sal goed voorbereid wees .

  11. Hierdie post is nie heeltemal relevant tot hierdie onderwerp maar handel ook oor ‘n Boland skool. Ek het geen verbintenis met Paarl Gim nie, maar volg die plaaslike skole se sportuitslae. Ek was weereens verbaas toe ek na Gim se volledige rugby uitslae teen Paul Roos kyk. Gim wen 19 van die 23 wedstryde, die 3 wat hulle verloor het was die 5de span, o/14e en 15f, as ek reg onthou onderskeidelik met 5, 2 en 1 punt. Die wedstryde wat hulle gewen het was meer oortuigend met ‘n gemiddelde telling van 28-8. Teen Affies het Gim 15 uit 23 gewen met ‘n gemiddelde telling van 18-12. Soos julle weet het PRG en Affies oor die 1000 seuns en Gim ongeveer 580. Verder kompeteer Gim ook met PRG, Boishaai en Boland Landbou vir spelers in ‘n radius van 50km. Dit teenoor ‘n skool soos Grey Bloem waar die naaste baie sterk sportskool ongeveer 400km van hulle in Gauteng is. Met netbal en hokkie vaar die Gim meisies ook uitstekend, netbal het 3 weke terug groot toernooi in Bloem gewen en hokkie was tweede na die magtige Oranje meisies hokkiespan. Bostaande getuig van ‘n skool wat werklik bo sy gewig presteer met uitstekende strukture en afrigting. Dit dien ook as ‘n voorbeeld vir ander skole wat die ontwikkeling van vaardighede aanbetref, want al die talent loop nie net automaties by die skool se hek in nie.

  18. @Grizzly: Kan jou verseker Gim het nie vergeet hoe dit voel nie. Dit is wel so dat die 4 jaar in n ry nie n lekker smaak in die mond laat nie. Daarvan kan die Boishaai ondersteuners op die blog getuig. As my feite reg is, hou Boishaai die “rekord” van 5 verlore in n ry. Die begeerte om weer te wen, raak elke keer net sterker, soos dit ook hierdie jaar sal wees. En soos beide skole al uitgevind het, kan enigiets op daardie dag gebeur…

  20. @Grizzly: Ek dink nie jou defenitiewe gem is so eensydig soos jy dit uit maak nie. Van onder o14A-o16A is Gim se jnr rugby beter as Menlo gerank. Gim se krieket span was een van die finaliste in die T20 reeks, Menlo was nie daar nie. Gim se Netbal span het Wildeklawer gewen. Gim se dogters hokkie span het Menlo gewen in die St Mary Festeval en toe in die finaal teen Oranje verloor. Ek weet Gim was 7de uit meer as 100 skole by Tuks Top 10 atletiek byeenkoms. Gim het laasjaar 100% matriek slaag syfer gehad en ek sien nie Menlo se naam daar nie.

Ek het gesien hoe verloor Menlo se jnr spanne in die Maart Rugby naweke. Niks van die het met rankings te doen nie, als is waar Gim beter presteer het as Menlo.

  28. EK het nou die laaste 20 odd comments gelees. Manne gaan lees weer die opskrif, en lewer dalk relevante kommentaar oor dit. Ek glo dit gaan ‘n lekker rillerstryd wees tussen die 2 spanne. Mag ek ‘n draw roep vir môre se stryd?

    ReplyReply
  29. @Koning: Hi. Let me try help swing the conversation in the right direction. The Paul Roos midfield. This is looking like it will be a very vulnerable area for the visitors during tomorrow’s game. With the likes of Reagan vdW, Ruben L, Tiaan P and even a player like Andrew P on the injury list not to mention the well-known defection to the opposition, it is going to be tough going for the Maroons to find solidarity on D or rhythm on backline attack.

    Last weekend Siebert ran at the 12 channel a lot. I wonder if HJS have a plan in mind to try and exploit this area tomorrow.

    ReplyReply
  30. Boishaai mag dalk die oorhand hê in die middelveld, en met die weer wat mooi is, glo ek dit gaan lekker wees vir hardloop rugby. Maar kyk, Boishaai vs Paul Roos is maar altyd ‘n groot en taai stryd (laasjaar uitgesluit natuurlik!). Ek het self 2 jaar teen Paul Roos uitgedraf, waarin die punteverskil in altwee wedstryde slegs 3 was.

  38. @beet: lotta guys gonna give me stick for this but I have to call it as I see it. If Boishaai are clever, they will run at Wolhuter channel every single chance they get. He is very good with ball in hand but is nowhere with defense. He simply does not like that in your face contact. A few solid runs at his channel early in the game combined with two solid early tackles will neutralize him as what happened in Paarl Gim game. If Boishaai are successfull in that, they will run riot and again put a margin of 18+ on PRG. So let me commit to a score: Boishaai 46 – 24 PRG. Despite scores, this will be a a humdinger no doubt. Good luck to all involved.

  39. @malhuis: Yeah I think in most contests if you can get mismatches of any kind, it has the potential to pay maximum dividends. Obviously running the 10 channel exposes the ballcarrier to the loose-forwards and the Roos trio aren’t exactly the most gentle lackadaisical characters around so that running at the 10 tactic will have to come with a bit of danger pay included :-D

    ReplyReply
  40. @beet: worked for Paarl Gim and exposed what was till now very well negotiated by PRG. Problem is even if you have a solid loose trio, if your 10 channel is suspect they can only do so much, especially if the tempo is high. Let’s see if Boishaai also picked up on this.

  49. Good win for Boishaai. They looked like the better balanced team and at 21-9 up PRG looked like they were in a spot of bother. Then at 21-16 the game looked like it hung in the balance with Paul Roos having a bit of momentum. I’m sure the well struck penalty by the HJS fullback was a sight for sore eyes for many Boishaai supporters and good for their hearts and nerves too. Final try was the icing on the cake. It was a gem involving a few very good passes to open up the field for a wonderful finish.

    ReplyReply
  50. @apple: @Stier: Your assumptions are not entirely correct.
    The first question you should answer is does Boishaai poach?
    We all know the answer.
    So, if you poach one or 10, you are a poacher. Poaching just two a season will not make Boishaai less of a poacher and this is what your argument is based on.
    Then, your second question is does Boishaai poach regularly. We also know the answer to this question.
    And then, are there poached boys in junior teams? And how many boys did Boishaai approach at u.16 tournaments? Some came, but do you know that a number of them said no.
    And please don’t come with the story that the boys, out of the blue, just decided they want to leave their schools for Boishaai, as this is pretty lame defense and only the very gullible will believe you.
    So, there is your answer and it will give me a lot of pleasure to carry on and on and on with this issue so that more and more parents can become aware of what you are doing.

  51. @beet: it was a good game in the end…too many injuries in Prg backline to compete at this level….4 in total.

    ReplyReply
  52. @Chronicle: No I don’t know the answer to that question and I think neither do you. Who did they poach? Please some facts not just assumptions. Please carry on and on but give facts because you haven’t stated one fact yet. Who is the under 16 boys that came to Boishaai? There is not one u/16 boy in the A team that came to Boishaai this year. Unless you suggest that they buy players for their B and C team which is a totally stupid accusation, no school can afford that. Once again I know off only one boy in the u/16 team on a full scholarship and there are one more boy that I suspect also has a full scholarship but they have been in the school since grade 8. Please provide us with facts and less assumptions and baseless BS.

    ReplyReply
  53. @Chronicle: Now only one player makes you one of the biggest poachers? You got to be kidding me? Didn’t you a while ago congratulate a school up north for their program? That school has scouts in the Cape that send kids every year to Gauteng. Kids from schools like Durbanville, Outeniqua and Boishaai that don’t have “opportunities” are targeted. Some clarification on this will be appreciated.

    ReplyReply
  54. @beet: @kokkie: Yes PRG are without the services of four midfield backs. Not many schools will be able to take such a knock in midfield. What I didn’t get is why Boishaai didn’t play the ball more wide? It was clear PRG didn’t have the outside backs and Boishaai in my opinion didn’t test their backs enough. With Bocks, Horn, Farmer and Osch and Rosseau they should have attacked much more with their backline.

  61. @Smallies: If you are talking about Bocks he was in PRG but with Reagan and Ruben there he was never going to play first team. The irony is that both are injured, Ruben might still make the GCB game. As far as I know Bocks moved because he wasn’t going to play first team. I am not so sure. If one boy that moves in the whole school and that makes you one of the biggest poachers then I guess you are right. I was surprised to hear how many Grey first team players that played against Affies only came to Grey in grade 11. I didn’t think it would be that many. I guess then Grey is also one of the biggest poachers?

    If you don’t know then you are ill informed and should refrain from blogging about stuff you don’t know.
    I promise you, you don’t want to go the route of naming. As I stated before, I work in communities and the people know what really happens.
    I also clearly stated some boys were approached and eventually they said no. You only know about the boys that moved.
    Maybe you don’t realise this, but the more you deny, the more your credibility will be questioned.

  70. @Stier: He is not new, he started there gr9 last year, u16 this year. Think ou Murrayfield will remember him from his Rustenburg days. I don’t have a problem with migration, just noted that the better players on the field yesterday were originally from other schools, so don’t be so defensive. That Landbou u16 team has had players from Garsfontein, Paarl Gym, Rondebosch and even Ben Vorster for a while join since gr8, without any underhanded business, to spare you the effort of a forensic audit. All Landbouers and playing like Landbouers in my books 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻

  74. @Stier: Daar het 2 seuns van Stellenberg en 2 van Durbanville die jaar graad 10 by HJS begin. Hulle almal uit hulle eie gegaan? Johnny niks vir hulle belowe? Hulle speel wel nie A span maar hulle het almal geskuif. Nie dat dit saak maak want ons het ook van julle manne gekry begin van jaar en van ander skole. Moet net nie deny dat julle aanwinste kry na graad 8 deur werwers want dit is nie waar nie.

    Op ander punt, weet jy hoeveel nuwe manne PRG by o16 het want ek weet van 3 sedert middel laas jaar maar lyk of hulle uitslae agteruit boer as ek kyk wat jou seun se span gister met hulle gemaak het.

  76. @BoishaaiPa: No sir. You are wrong. I am familiar with a number of psychological phenomena and I actually know what it means. You’ve interpreted completely wrong. Better read up on how it really works and not just the layman interpretation. Psychologists also tend to misinterpret their findings as they are not trained statisticians.
    I suggest you stick to calculate rankings, at least it keeps people talking, no matter how distorted it may be.

  77. @McCulleys Workshop: No, really, I am not. Just taking on some holy cows. Some criticize others while guilty of the same. Just pointing it out to them, but they get upset asthey are trying to justify the world they live in.
    On Dunning-Kruger, if you read up on the criticism, the following. Everybody suffers from this effect to some degree. But many times it is due to ignorance and not because of a superiority complex.
    On average all people tend to over estimate opposed to under-estimate.

    Hier in die Boland het ons oor die jare geleer dat vehoudings tussen skole maar sy “ups and downs” het, maar uiteindelik is ons dankbaar vir die gesonde kompetisie, die uitdaag tot beter standaarde, vriendskappe en “banter”. Wie laaste lag geld nie hier nie…volgende jaar lag iemand weer vir jou.

  80. @Stier: Re the Boishaai attacking tactics. The Selborne game was perhaps a great example of a coach thinking outside the box. Right from the get-go they did the unexpected. In minute 1, the normally very physical hooker Goosen who usually tries to give the defender immediately in front of him an extreme makeover, made a waterpolo pass to a teammate in the line in an effort to go wide quickly and they scored a try from it. I suspect the tactics caught their opponents completely off guard.

  81. @Losbal: Okay thanks. One Boishaai spectator was in tears in the stands once Boishaai had secured the win. I wonder what that was all about?

  82. Did not warch the game. Will watch review and give you feedback. I have a hunch re prominent old boy with son at school diagnosed with terminal illness earlier in the week. Maar ek kan jou waarborg dit het boggerol met PR te doen.

  83. @CharlesZA: Like I said before I am only aware of one boy maybe two that are on full bursaries in the u/16 group. Durbanville and Stellenberg lost nine boys to Gim, PRG, Garsies and Boishaai last year. Did they get something? I doubt it. What school can buy players for their B and C team? This idea that schools are buying all these boys are insane. When my son finished grade 8 every second boy had a bursary from Boland? Like if Boland can afford that, a year or two later the truth started to come out and only one had a bursary. There is a very good boy thinking of moving to Boishaai next year, when he does everybody will throw their toys, the funny thing is not even Johnny knows that he wants to move but his dad will most likely phone the school and ask for something.

    I find it funny how people can compliment one school on their poaching program and then have a go at others. I couldn’t care less who buys what but if you move kids hundreds of kilometers from their homes I do not like it. Even if Boishaai is doing it I will not agree with such a program. Fact is grade six and seven boys from the Cape are playing for primary schools in Gauteng. We all know what happened to those boys a few years ago when they moved from one Gauteng school to another. There is no way anybody can say that is the right way to do things.

    @Chronicle: I am as English as a koeksister. A year ago a blogger asked if we can blog in English so I did. Unlike you I don’t have a problem with people that speak a different language to mine.

  84. @Stier: “What happened to those boys”

    Abner wasn’t recruited by BH,he signed a contract with the Union and conveniently landed up at BH.The focus to play /19 cc for province and more importantly to get his Higher Certificate.Obviously he would play the od game for BH,but he was mainly there to finish school.We all know how that one turned out.Help me but I can’t remember him missing a game for BH.How many CC games did he played for province?I understand his playing club rugby in the Cape so all the best for him.

    Case nr 2 is the 8 who joined BH from Affies.Like you stated before he just decided one day late in his child high school career to pack up lock stock and barrel and move to BH out of free will..Ya right…

    Case nr3 is the Garsies 12 who’s dad in detail stated on this blog how he was offered a position by BH old boy,when he left,why he left etc.I remember he was attacked for not telling the truth etc.

    Fact is your an x Vallie and within your first year in BH, decided to become their spokesperson on BH recruitment policy or lack thereof.You olso intitled yourself to rubbish a school compo 100 years old.Explained to us why Beker rugby is bad and basically if it’s not done like in your beloved Cape,it’s crap.

    I know you going to attacked a certain school up North now and tell me how unlucky boys is far from home,just make certain in your reference that you mentioned one of those unlucky boys is going to the World Cup, another unlucky one is playing Supersport Challenge and making news headlines because his earning more than most adults at the age of 18.Yes,I know there’s many more,I leave it up to you to investigate where the other unlucky boys may be.You can start by finding out how many is contracted to unions,have received burserys from universitys..Then come back and tell us their sorry tales…

  85. @Grizzly: You do realize the no. 8 moved with his parents to Paarl? I guess they should have moved without him? Just remind us again where is Abner and his family from? Relax I didn’t name any school. As for rubbishing a 100 year comp are you serious? Just because I think the old format of the 80’s was better you get to me rubbishing the comp? You can’t be serious? Wake up, I am not the only one that don’t like liga rugby, there are primary and high schools in Pretoia that don’t play liga. One of those schools just played in the Cape and they did some real damage. You just don’t get it, when 70 boys play rugby at under 8 and the next year when liga start they only have two teams and half those boys can’t play anymore you realize how stupid liga is. I didn’t like liga when I was in Pretoria, moving to the Cape just showed me how much better the system in the Cape is, especially at primary school level. Don’t worry keep your head in the sand that way you don’t have to face what is happening at primary school level in Pretoria.

    As for BH requirement, you sure are dramatic tonight. There is so many claims made that’s total BS, if I know it to be I will call it out. I don’t know every boy in the school, maybe you should read again?

  86. @Grizzly: sorry it was to late at night. I didn’t attack any of the schools I mentioned. The last paragraph should read recruitment. The only requirement I know is that you have to impress the principle during your interview. :lol:

  87. @Grizzly: Just to set the record straight..Abner is playing WP SS team flyhalf…And just for interest sake..Boishaai had a 100% passing rate for a very long time, until 2017.. guess their whole system fell apart that year and it was all their fault they had pass failure.

    But I do know when people refer to me.
    Maybe you don’t know when people are referring to you when not stated specifically or addressing you by name, but that is a problem a psychiatrist can help with. But, as you know about Dunning-Kruger, maybe you can diagnose your own problem – you will save on the fees.

  92. @Chronicle: Chronicle I respond to your bit but really want to respond to these of Stier , Grizzly etc too: Guys I struggle to understand what is going on here . Why are you all so aggressive and frankly sensitive about every comment. Or is that the purpose of a blog ? I joined to hear what everyone think but my goodness some of you can say “ good morning “ and seconds later someone will be seeing some hidden meaning in it . Am I just dumb and naive about this ? If not can you all just try to be kinder to each other ?

    ReplyReply
  93. @Chronicle: We are both right.
    All schools poach/ buy/ sponsor/ entice, etc
    Stier, as I understand him, refrred to accusations of specific players who were not. Does not mean there are others who were.

    I read on another rugby blog re Dunning-Kruger reference from Gim blogger. Coincidence?

    ReplyReply
  94. @Chronicle: Funny how you went from the biggest poachers to one or two boys? Go read where you started and answer the questions if you will be so kind.

    ReplyReply
  95. @Stier: agree. though his warning to “the communities” he work in is relevant and that is thus: even if you are taken in the middle of the night by paarl, kicking and screaming against your will, you may not end up playing for either the u16as or first team (given that 27 /30 started year 8 at paarl). as man u have recently shown, you can poach or buy or recruit as much as you want to, but without the right culture, coaching, support and pride in the jersey, you are only a group of players, you are not a team. and all of the names mentioned above, they played for the team and for the school.
