  2. Helpmekaar vs Menlopark behoort een van die hardste games van die naweek te wees. Gaan nie voorspelling maak daar nie. Dan die twee skole van Krugersdorp Noordheuwel en Monument behoort baie interresant te wees. Noordheuwel gaan nie terugstaan vir Monument nie. Ek dink die 2 skole het jare laas teen mekaar gespeel sover ek kan onthou by die 1ste spanne so daar is bietjie geskiedenis daar. EGJansen moet nie Transvalia onderskat nie. Twee skole van die Valke en Transvalia gaan hard probeer terugkom om ‘n punt te probeer wys. Heidelberg Volkskool en Hugenote Springs gaan ook hard wees.

  3. @Wonder: Ek geniet hul spel. Ondernemend en hoe tempo. Boonop skroom hulle nie om hul tackles te maak nie. Altyd iets aan die gebeur wanneer hulle speel, veral vanjaar.

  4. 50-22 Jansen. Soos verwag was dit kliphard met ‘Valia wat vir die grootste deel van die wedstryd meer as kompeterend was.

  6. Skitterende 2de helfte deur Gim, lig aan die einde van die tonnel ondertoe, maar bo was die gaping huge. Siebert & Wilson = ysters 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻

  7. @knowthegame: Menlo se seisoen blyk om die volgende “Run-a-way train” te wees. Verlore, en ‘n droom na kwaliteit afrigting is al wat hulle toeskouers nou aan kan vas hou. :twisted:

  8. Oh ja, baie geluk aan al die junior spanne wat darem almal kon knoop deurhaak.

  9. @Richard Lowe: Is dit regtig die probleem? Self met RB,wat baie goed is het dinge nie gewerk nie, miskien seuns wat bang is vir beserings voor CW?

    ReplyReply
  10. @Richard Lowe: #Moeslankalgfk@fht…

    @Wonder: Nee solank die probleem daar is sal die kanker bly sprei. Nodig om die ding in kiem te smoor.
    Vraag is, gaan SR iets doen, of BL, want die tyd is verstreke.

  11. @Wonder: Same-old-same-old. Menlo sal nooit hulle volle potensiaal so bereik nie:lol:

  12. @Skopgraaf243: Garsies is my span maar ek wil graag sien dat Menlo se seuns ook volgens hul potetiaal speel. Dis tog waaroor dit gaan.

    ReplyReply
  13. @Wonder: Hy kan dalk net beter doen. DvdW was die oorsaak dat RB weg is by Menlo .. Die eerste jaar wat RB afgerig het, het hy n swak groep gehad(My seun was deel van groep) en is vroegtydig vervang, ek sal altyd n Menlo ondersteuner wees, maar .. sal NOOIT DvdW ondersteun, die ouderdomsgroep wat hy nou het, het alles gewen as jnr’s , en nou sukkel hulle. Voel jammer vir seuns en ouers!!!

    ReplyReply
  14. @Richard Lowe: Ek hoor jou. Neem net in ag die enige iets wat ek oor Menlo se rugby sê sal as negatief teenoor Menlo beskou word. Ek meen weet wat ‘n Garsie ondersteuner nou van Menlo rugby af? Sterkte, hoop julle sort te politiek vinnig uit. Ek dink nog oor jou comment dat Menlo vir Garsies sal wen as SA die worldcup wen. Ek dink nie Rugbyman sal ‘n game gooi nie. Sorry.

  15. @Skopgraaf243: hallo mater.Ek nie meer kids in skool maar ek support die”effort” wat die skool doen om kompeterend te wees.Julle junior spanne baie goed.Ag weet jy wat, winning is belangrik maar nie alles.Obvious wil jy he junior spanne moet deur trek na 1 ste pan maar dit werk nie altyd so.Any way die ondersteuners ken die game-“holding-holding- holding” :wink:

    ReplyReply
  16. @Richard Lowe: I find your comment interesting. If I understand you correctly, you will support the school no matter what. So, say your son plays for the u.16A team and is outstanding. The next year he will end up at a questionable coach where his career might suffer, what then?
    Are you acting in your son’s interest by supporting the school no matter what?
    Wat ek probeer uitvind is of die instelling vir jou so belangrik is dat jy bereid is om jou seun se loopbaan daarvoor op te offer?
    Veral as jy weet dat ander afrigters by ander skole dalk sy loopbaan beter kan bevorder. En jy sien die SGB gaan niks doen om die situasie by jou skool te verander nie.
    If it was me I would do what is best for my son, no matter the institution.
    Net ‘n vraag en geen vingerwysing na jou toe nie.

  17. @knowthegame: Comments on FB states that Helpmekaar should have won by 50 points as they bungled 5 to 6 tries.
    This sounds like it was one sided, but then it might be very subjective. Don’t know, wasn’t there.

    ReplyReply
  18. @knowthegame: Hi daar.
    Hierdie is eenvoudig.
    Dis soos om 40km/h op snelweg te ry, en die drywer sien nie potensiaal van die motor wat hy bestuur nie.
    Te veel puppets, en onbekwame man aan die stuur van sake.
    Hou jy by jou storie, en ek by myne.

    Belangrik genoeg, dis regtig “sad” om minste te sê. Tyd om die “houvas” aan die bors te gryp vir antwoorde!.

  19. @Chronicle: My son finished school in 2017, was coached by RB in 2017. He is currently applying his trade at a smaller union, after successfully playing currie cup in 2018. My loyalty will always be with Menlo because of the opportunity they gave him, but .. I will hold the school responsible for not looking after quality coaches like @Murrayfield and RB.

    ReplyReply
  20. @Richard Lowe: Well done to your son. Hope he makes it.
    I get what you say.
    But this is a general question. Let’s not make it applicable to you and I would love to hear what bloggers say about this.
    Say this is happening at a school a parent holds in high regard. Should the parent move his son, or stay due to his affinity with the school, in the process sacrificing his son’s chances of a career in rugby.

    ReplyReply
  21. @Chronicle: No no no… you play both sides now… a boy should never move… he should be married to a school when he walks in at grade 8 level… moving schools is poaching and should be punishable by death…

    ReplyReply
  22. @Chronicle: Reality they bungled three easy oppertunities by knocking on. Menlo was very good for large parts of the game. They should be in play -offs

    ReplyReply
  23. Menlo is a proper school with proper junior sides. Your 0/16 very good. It’s just a matter of time before the 1st team fire. Good days rugby played in good spirit. Maybe just be patient with first team. They also very talented

    ReplyReply
  24. @Rugbyman: I am not talking about a school approaching a boy. I am interested in whether a parent, who, for some reason or another is attached to a particular school, should move his boy to another school to further his career at another school. In other words, should your affinity to a school trump your child’s career?

    ReplyReply
  25. Het gewoder hoe afrigter van 0/14 A v 2012 by KP bn CV reggekry bet om wenspan by TT te transformeer na pv van 80 vs EG in MX agergig deur AV nadat o/16 2 jaar vroeër = vs selfde span gespeel het afgerig deur CV.

    Die punt is .. ek verstaan nie al julle akronieme en afks nie. :lol:

    ReplyReply
  26. @Rugbyman: Let me explain. Say I attended school A and school A has a very strong brand. I had a wonderful time there and according to me nothing is better than this school. So, my son is attending the school and he is an outstanding player. But for some reason the school’s coaching structure does not cut it and works to the detriment of my son’s rugby. Should I hope things change at school A and keep my son there based on such hope, or should I move my boy to school B?

    ReplyReply
  27. @Chronicle: I know exactly what you mean… If it is my boy and he is unhappy, I will move him…

    Let me explain… there are many such situations, and when a boy moves the likes of you and some others on the blog always (mostly) blame the recipient school of poaching… exactly like you did with Monnas a few weeks ago in terms of the transvalia players… You assume and dont know the background… You shoot from the hip and hope to hit something… In my opinion it is none of your or my business why a boy moved school… I am of the opinion that there is always a push and pull when someone moves school!

    Parents make moves on what they feel are the best for their kids…

    I have made this point many, many times but I guess you like the sensation hence you will try and make it a big thing again… Im not interested in this argument again.

    ReplyReply
  28. @Chronicle: A good parent will always do what IS good for his/her children and not what they want to be good for their children.
    Many parents believe their boys are the next rugby/cricket or whatever star and will make it better through a particular school.
    But more often than not it does not happen.
    A parent should not put his/her interests above that of the children.
    To me it is a no brainer.

    ReplyReply
  29. @Rugbyman: I said I will confess if I am wrong. Now, I must confess, I was wrong by blaming Monnas and apologise unreservedly.
    I did not shoot from the hip, I acted on account of another blogger who stated they poached 4 boys from Transvalia. I should have made sure that these are facts before I accused Monnas.
    I only managed to find one boy (and not 4) from Transvalia in Monnas’ first team. Murrayfield was right when he gave the names.
    But I was informed that Monnas got boys from other schools than Transvalia. Now, I am not going to make the same mistake and say it is true and accuse Monnas as I was not able to verify the claims.
    So, again, Murrayfield, you were right when you said I am going to have a red face.

    ReplyReply
  30. @Chronicle: Hopefully lesson learnt then…

    I am going to have some good red wine now and braai ‘n vleisie whilst watching the proteas… enjoy your debate!

    ReplyReply
  31. @Rugbyman: Daai proteas gaan jou hele sondag kondemm kyk eerder n lekker movie na jy gebraai het ,ek gaan ook braai nou ,en later bietjie fliek ,goeie dag om shawshank redemption weer bietjie nader te trek

    ReplyReply
  32. @Rugbyman: Lesson learnt, but I was not looking for an argument.
    Just something that Richard Lowe said that made me think. Whether an institution is bigger than the child’s needs?
    To take it to an extreme, a different example. Say a person is Hitler’s doctor and must treat him to prevent him from dying. The doctor does not believe in what Hitler is doing. Should he save his life, or not?

    ReplyReply
  33. @Rugbyman: Daai kaptein van ons het nou net gese ons was 1 partnership weg van pressure op Engeland sit in die vorige game. Die arme man is of stupid, dink ons is stupid of lieg vir ons.

    ReplyReply
  34. Dit lyk my die Menlopark manne is nie gelukkig dat hul span 2 verlore in ‘n ry het nie. Laas week Garsfontein en die week Helpmekaar. Julle moet net onthou hierdie is twee van die sterkste skole spanne in die land. Helpmekaar is ook nie verniet in die top 10 nie. Hulle het ‘n baie sterk span. 8 punte verloor is glad nie sleg nie. Die Virseker beker is darem maar ‘n baie harde kompetisie die jaar.

    ReplyReply
  35. @Richard Lowe: Dink dit was n goeie move. Dink by die Pumas gaan hy n blink toekoms he. Hulle toekoms lyk lyk baie goed vir 2020 en daarna.
    Dink wel hy was ongelukkig om n besering op te doen in laasjaar ander was hy nogsteed by daardie unie.

    ReplyReply
  36. @Riempies:My seun is nie by Pumas, is nou by Luiperds, om eerlik te wees, is ek verlig oor besering, hy kon darm eerste helfte van jaar aan studies konsentreer.

    ReplyReply
  37. @Chronicle: It’s not even a debate – a doctor should treat a patient to the best of his abilities, no matter who or what he is. If he can’t, he should find himself a different occupation.

    ReplyReply
  38. @Chronicle: Doctors make an oath to save lives. He’ll have to unless he can refer another doctor within reasonable time.

    But to get to your point. The matter is simple… What would you do as a parent? I support a certain school, and will support that school for as long as I live. I hope one day I’ll send my son there. If he goes and I’M UNHAPPY with a coach but he’s happy with the school, he should stay. If he’s UNHAPPY WITH THE SCHOOL, and not just a coach, then I’d have to take him out. It doesn’t mean I’ll stop supporting the school. I didn’t make an oath to have my kid there. I only oathed to myself to be a supporter of the school.

  39. @jakes: Net ‘n voorbeeld: gaan loer gerus vir jouself op you-tube waar die span van Menlo 2017 Grey Bloem en Paarl Boys u16, in dieselfde naweek op hulle neuse laat kyk het. :twisted:
    CURRENT ISSUE NOT LACK OF TALENT IMO

    ReplyReply
  40. @Skopgraaf243: Ek vermoed jou geheue laat jou bietjie in die steek..In 2017 was HJS Paarl nie by die o/16 week nie..hulle was in NZ. En Menlo het vir Framesby en Grey gewen (met 2 punte) en teen Oakdale verloor. Die 2018 0/16 spannetjie het PR en HJS wel geklop.

    ReplyReply
  41. @BoishaaiPa: Dankie man.
    @jakes:
    Dit staaf my punt steeds dat dié spannetjie van Menlo hope talent het en onder presteer. Twee jaar se spqnne met diepte. Jy praat van teoreties ons een tot vier baie goed moet/kompeterend in laer spanne móet wees.
    Hierdie is nie ‘n herontwikkeling van die wiel nie.

    ReplyReply
  42. @BoishaaiPa: hel maar julle het lekker weer hieronder inni kaap.
    Eks hier tot November. Sal bietjie die skole naweke kan invaar met die res van hulle games, en sien of die berg my ook wysheid bring :twisted: .

  43. Om n skool soos Grey college te wees verg jare se ???? ek weet nie eers wat alles nie.GEWONE skole gemeng en seuns het 400 , 500 tot 1200 1300 seuns, wat hul onmiddelikke area se kinders moet invat, hoe dit reggekry word om vir 10 20 jaar n top 5 skool konstant te wees in enige faset, behoort onder normale skoolpraktyke onmoontlik te wees. LAAT SKOOL WEER SKOOL WEES op alle fasette. Geniet die enkele jare wat BV: rugby bogemiddeld presteer, dit behoort net af en toe moontlik te wees.

  44. @knowthegame: Man with vision! Watch this space!! We had some crucial injuries during the W/Kloof game but will get over it.

    @jakes: Jy is 100% reg en Menlo gaan nog goeie rugby speel die jaar. Het eintlik gehoop die ander Virseker spanne skryf ons ook af net soos van ons eie “ondersteuners” :wink:

  45. I watched the Boishaai game on Saturday. I know the HJS attacking game was tops and that the ref pinged them a lot at the breakdowns. But to me it really looked like they in dominant in that aspect of play and overall the linespeed and focus of their D-fence really didn’t get the praise or reward it deserved.

    I must say I was leaning towards the Gim centre pairing as my personal first choice before these CW selections were confirmed but I’ve always liked Quan Horn. His persistence = his never-say-die positive attitude. He was awesome on Saturday. He proved really hard for the Bishops defenders to handle.

  46. Westville were on fire against Kearsney. Every time they laid hands on the ball they tried to up the tempo. Following the lead from teams like Grey College and Glenwood last year, when you have forwards that can handle the ball like skilful backs, your team is just that much better equipped to play attacking rugby. It was hard to single out a Westville player for special praise. It looked like all were putting up their hands at some stage to make a valued contribution. It was a tough day for Kearsney but to see them playing hard and committed rugby right to the very end made me very proud. They have good team spirit. The Kearsney no.8 Mass Fierro was great to watch. He plays a completely different style of game to Gideon van Wyk of Boishaai. The latter proved to be a nightmare to deal with due to his pace and ability to read the game and get onto the right lines – he typifies the “linking” quality that is sort after in an 8. Mass on the other hand is an ever-willing big ball carrier. Maybe not quite in the mold of a Billy Vunipola as he has more of a Facindo Isa body dimension to him. Still u17 so hopefully he can build on this promise he’s showing.

  49. @Skopgraaf243 Ek het die Gim/Boland wedstryd gekyk. Miskien is dit al hierbo genoem, maar Boland was na 33 min 3-0 voor(halftyd 5-3). Boland het die eerste helfte uitstekend gespeel. In die tweede het Gim kalm gebly en net voortgegaan aanhoudende aanvalle en die besit behou en die damwal het gebreek. Boland het wel gewys dat Gim uitgehou kan word, dus dink ek Boishaai/Gim gaan weer ‘n 50/50 interskole wees.

  50. @Skopgraaf243: Ek dink hier is die som wat Menlo verkeerd uitwerk
    (Hoof+BL)+(sport dir+rugby dir)+(Afrigter+seuns)+(ouers +support)
    =Hoof+rugby dir+afrigter +support
    =Rugby dlr +afrigter
    =Wen
    Stap een, die hoof is die baas van die Skool,die BL om hom te support en te bemagtig.BL ondergeskik en val weg.SONDER n bekwame hoof is die som verder vrugteloos,almal wat idees en voorstelle het Moet sy blessing he.

    Stap 2,Na beleid tov werwing,afrigter aan stel, budget, ens ooreen gekom is,val sport dir weg.SY werk is om rooi typ te sny en rugby dir te bemagtig.

    Stap 3.Die seuns Moet besef dat afrigting span daar is om presies dit te doen,af te rig.Almal Moet inkoop in sy patroon.INDIEN hy onbevoeg vir die taak blyk te wees,Moet hy vervang word.

    Stap 4,Ouers en supporters moet ondersteuners Bly.punt.Inmeng en politiek stook is doodskoot.

    Volgende stap,die hoof val weg en laat dir rugby om sy werk te doen,so ook die ouers en supporters by die afrigter.Dit los die dir rugby+afrigter.

    Die dir rugby en afrigter is verantwoordelik aan die einde van die seisoen.So ook wat beplanning Vir volgende seisoen aanbetref.So sal die afrigter id wat se spelers hy gewerf wil he.Hoeveel geld hy meer soek,miskien n skop of verdedigings konsultant.Wat se feeste aanvaar word ens,als tesaam rugby dir.Hy tesaam sport dir sal hul saak met die hoof bespreek wat weer vir support sal vra by BL voorsitter.

    As almal hulle plek ken,geloof in mekaar se abilities het,In dieselfde rigting trek,Nie inmeng met mekaar se take Nie,is dit die beste kans vir die spanne om optimaal te presteer.

  51. Congrats to Stellenberg on their win against Bosch. Used their opportunities well to get the result. There are some big boys in that pack (their locks are massive!) that ultimately laid the platform.

    However, I must say that it wasn’t a particularly pleasant game to watch. A lot of off-the-ball type incidents and general ‘nastiness’ filled the atmosphere. I never like to bring up the ref but I feel I have to here – he made some very puzzling inconsistent decisions, and had very little control over the game, which contributed to it; I think there were 6-7 yellow cards given in this game.

    I’m not going to say much more as don’t want to come across as being sour, but I feel an experienced official would’ve calmed the players and emotions down. Instead, we could’ve watched a good game involving two talented teams as opposed to a game which left many players hobbling off with injuries, and the crowd looking away every time a tackle was made or a ruck formed.

  52. @Richard Lowe: …. jy moet dalk net byvoeg dat Dean die hoof afrigter was van daardie baie suksesvolle groep van 0/14 tot 0/16 Beeld/Virseker wenners.

  54. @AbsolutMenlo: Ek ondersteun die span!! En ek is bewus van die baie goeie werk wat hy gedoen het, ek voel net hy het sy “raklewe” bereik en iemand anders moes hulle die jaar afrig .. Net my opinie, maar ek dink nie dit is goed vir n span, as dieselfde coach jou deurvat vanaf O/14 – Snr.
