The Rugby Championship – Round 4 preview.

Written by The Editor on . Posted in Features, Rugby

Round four of the Rugby Championship, the weekend where we will get to see just where each team stands after playing each other. My guess that little realization may not be too great for us Bok fans, but a great day of rugby awaits nevertheless.

Ya my friend, it isn’t as easy as it looks.

Let’s get into it.

As you know Argentina have been added to what was once the Tri-Nations and voila, The Rugby Championship. The Castle Lager Rugby Championships to be exact.

Golden moment with the new trophy.

Two rather large matches kick us off in Sydney and in Cape Town during week 1, so let’s get down to business!

Saturday: Australia vs New Zealand 12:00

TheBounce says: New Zealand by 15

Crackerometer: 7

When the Bok squad was announced over the weekend I didn’t even try look at it with all the Olympic action on the go right now. But next Saturday at 17:00, in Cape Town, Jean de Villiers leads the Boks out against Argentina.

New opposition – new excitement.

So, let’s not dilly nor dally, but rather have a look at Heyneke’s latest squad and the games that await them in the first running of this expanded tournament.

SA vs ENG – 3rd Test Match Review.

Written by The Editor on . Posted in Features, Rugby

Series decided but anything but a dead rubber in the 3rd Test as the Poms looked to finish their season and tour on a high, the Boks likewise desperately wanting to complete the whitewash to round off what has been a more than satisfactory start to their new Heyneke Meyer led era.

The game was sadly a dreadful affair with the most dreadful of results – a low scoring draw.

Ya, I know - just so wrong on every level.
