#Habashwe let’s do this campaigned seems to have sunk in on the Boks as they seem to be getting better with every match. Scotland was their next victim this past weekend, 3 tries from Habana, Burger and JP Prietersen who’s starting to score almost every match secured them a 34-16 win, which put them on top Group B. Their last group match will be against USA on Wednesday(06-10-2015).
Hiyo le! Hiyo le iBhakabhaka!*singing the Orlando Pirates theme song* after making history in Cairo and hoisting the S.A flag high this song might as well be this week’s theme song. Pirates went to Cairo with a slim 1-0 lead, and knowing how Ahly and Zamalek perform in Egypt, no one really gave them a chance. Pirates came from 2-0 to secure a 4-3(5-3 on aggregate) win in Cairo in front of a hostile crowd, which later turned violent which led to Bucs using back doors for security reasons. Anyway the boys are back in the country and looking forward the final against Tunisian Etoile du Sahel.
After previous defeats against the Lions and Western Province, the Bulls seems to have made a vow that “never and never again” shall they lose another match. Coming from a scrappy win against the Sharks, they convincingly beat the Kings 48-27. If they continue winning and hope that the Lions ba latlhe sight(slip up) they might take the number one spot again.
#ProteaFire seems too hot for Indian fans, and here I was thinking they like hot things. I guess the second T20 match against the Proteas was hotter than what they’re used to, which led to them throwing things in the stadium and causing a slight halt to the match despite defeat staring them in the eye. The Indian team was unable to handle the excellent bowling and fielding of the Proteas, which led to them only making 92 runs. Once again Duminy drove us to the finish line, Albie Morkel also announced his comeback with a man of the match performance.
