2012 SA Schools players are bigger than 1992 Boks

21 August, 2012 beet 5

It is just over 20 years to the day since South Africa gained readmission to the international rugby arena. Rugby has changed a fair bit in terms of the rules and the way it is played in that time but remains a game loved passionately by many South Africans both young and old. It was therefore interesting to compare some of the statistics of the first Bok team selected back in 1992 to those of the current SA Schools team.

KZN clings onto Varsity Cup status

30 July, 2012 beet 0

On the same day that the Sharks enjoyed centre stage in a high profile Superugby semi-final win against the Stormers, the province’s only Varsity Cup entrant, the UKZN Impi, who compete the Varsity Shield (Varsity Cup B-section) were involved in a do-or-die battle of their own in Pietermaritzburg.

23 July, 2012 beet 25

I know this is a rugby site but the “Big Easy” Ernie Els deserves a big round of applause for a job well done at the Open.

It was also a really good weekend for the Sharks and Proteas.

A belated well done to Hashim Amla on becoming the very first SA test cricketer to score over 300 runs in a test match.
