As we go into the precious two months of the year that have no rugby, time to look ahead to the tournament that we all really care about each year. No, not the Six Nations, that’s crap, I’m of course talking about the Rugby Championships!

The averagely named, yet hugely exciting southern hemisphere showcase, shall follow the same fixture format as previous years. So let’s diarise the big games.

The new Bulls kit – Camo believe it!

When the Bulls came out with the all pink kit a couple years ago, I was full of praise for it. I’m a Stormers supporter through and through, but I’m a fan of the Bulls and how they do things as a union.

Now they have decided to ditch the pink, with kit sponsor Puma now providing them with something that far from ‘blends in’.

After showcasing the Bulls Babes Cheerleaders, we have ventured forth into the Free State to showcase the girls that get behind their rugby team there.

It was with no surprise that we discovered the Toyota Free State Cheetahs cheerleaders are just as passionate and enthusiastic about their team. So we asked them some questions, and found out a little more about what goes on in and around the Bloemfontein stadium…

We have had a whole bunch of really cool competitions on TheBounce this year. But looking back, one competition was so hard to win, that only a handful of sports fans out there could have done it.

Yup, I’m talking about the guy that won our SuperRugby SuperBru pool. With a 72.8% win accuracy, Jacques-Lood Lowies finish top of our 518 member Pool. For this he got a special prize!

Pitch invasions – back when they were innocent.

As we get ever closer to the big Currie Cup final between Western Province and the Sharks, time to go down memory lane a bit when Province won the 1986 final. Nothing overly strange about that, Province have won more Currie Cups than anyone else, but nowadays it is so strange to see fans running onto the field.

Yussee, those okes in the ‘scholars’ were going mal that day!
