Thumbsuck Top 30 for 07 April 2018

8 April, 2018 beet 220

I know it’s early days but what’s your thumbsuck looking like based on the results so far in 2018?
Based on their Easter Monday results I see opportunity to introduce DHS and Grey High while Saints’ come from behind win against St John’s earns them a place in the guestimate.

Boland Landbou Rugby Day 2018

16 March, 2018 beet 71

When good becomes great. That’s how to describe Boland Landbou’s decision to transform their sort of “popcorn” rugby styled shortened format of the game preseason matches to now include two proper full-length mouthwatering encounters as well. Live spectators and streaming viewers get to watch amongst others Stellenberg against Drostdy and Boland Landbou against Garsfontein. Awesome stuff.
