Us South African’s bitch a fair amount about rugby here in ‘The Republic’. Well, to be fair, we unfortunately have a lot to bitch about with all our shitty politics and the fact our rugby union is run by a group of illiterate 6 year olds who seem to have discovered an endless supply of cough medicine.
Deep down we all feel that we should be on top of the rugby world, but thanks to the intoxicated aforementioned administrators and our comical figurehead of a coach, we seem to be hindered somewhat. No such problems it would appear for our counterparts down in Frodo country though. Oh no, it seems the All Blacks just gain more and more momentum and become stronger each year with a group of confident players that thrive within a system that exhibits nothing but innovation, professionalism and good old fashioned common sense.
So as a change of tact here on TheBounce, as I have become particularly mouthy of late, I thought it would be a good idea to chat to an out and out New Zealand rugby fan. A man that passionately Backs the Blacks and one that is rather excited about the prospect of the elusive William Webb Ellis trophy returning to his homeland. Ladies and gentlemen I present to you Mr Jonny King.
