Amajita(RSA under 20), bafana ba Bra Shakes came from behind to claim a 1 all draw against Cameroon in the African Youth Championship qualifier’s 1st leg at Yaounde, I must say that was very courageous now can they win the 2nd leg which will be played at Polokwane on 31st August, lets go out in numbers to support the future of SA soccer. Anyways what do you guys think about the SAFA/Siyaya TV R1 bn deal for Bafana Bafana broadcasting rights? Who/what is Siyaya TV? What I could gather is that it’s a new pay-tv which will charge R70 pm subscription, it’s a black-owned media consortium. The Bakgatla-ba-Kgafela Chief John Molefe Pilane is a 40% share holder, the other share holders include talk show host Dali Tambo, CEO of Transnet Freight Siyabonga Gama, Siyaya chairperson Dr Vuyo Mahlati(we hope it’s not from ANC Institution) as well as Siyaya board member Aubrey Tau. I guess SAFA will always make us suffer I mean how many satellite dishes are we going to stick on our walls? the signals will end up getting mixed up.
Our Boks beat Argentina 13-6 in a rain affected Rugby Championship match after the heavens opened up and showered as both teams were singing their national anthems at our very own theater of sports Loftus Versfeld. Oh how I wish the same rain full of blessings would’ve poured down on our boys the Bulls because they lost 41-17 to Western Province, it doesn’t look good at all and I hope they’re not using the Bafana jujuman/sangoma, it seems like uwa vale ngci ama tries (the tries are sealed tight in a glass jar).
Remember the neighbors’ promised “no mercy and no respect”? Well no mercy prevailed as the Proteas showed no mercy to its neighbors Zimbabwe when they beat them in the test match, the first ODI as well as the 2nd ODI which was played this Tuesday 19 August at Bulawayo. The Proteas batted first and were bowled out with a 257 score, Zim were restricted to a 196 score which was not even enough for a draw. Even without their usual bowling attack Steyn/Morkel/Philander the Proteas have already won the 3 match ODI series before even playing their 3rd match which is scheduled for the 21st August, the proteas never disappoint unless if it’s a World Cup sadly.
The PSL was in full swing from Monday and continues all teams played and there were no goalless matches, this year’s PSL seems exciting at least so far. Let me start with Pretorian teams Masandawana registered their first win of the season by handing Maswaswai their first defeat by beating them 2-0, atleast Pitso’s ego got a boost. Tuks won 2-1 against Chippa Utd. Matsantsa lost 3-2 in a 5 goal thriller against E lla koto. Amakhosi continued with their brilliant start of the season when they won 1-0 against Siwele. Amabhaka bhaka kwenzenjani they just can’t seem to be winning any PSL match as they continued to struggle as they drew 1-1 against Amazulu. Wits won 1-0 against Maritzburg Utd, Dikwena won 2-0 against Aces, while Ajax won 2-1 against Polokwane City.
This weekend there are no PSL matches ke wafa wafa a se papadi ya magwala, both Soweto giants registered 1st leg wins with matching scores 2-0. The 2nd leg matches will see Pirates up against Wits at Orlando Stadium while Chiefs will be against Dikwena at FNB Stadium on Sunday. Derby final on the cards yes/no/maybe? And we don’t want any draws. Don’t forget the 3rd and final ODI between Proteas and Zim on the 21st of August. The Boks will be up against Argentina in the 2nd leg at Salta in Argentina on Saturday. Bo mme ba merapelo need to pray for the Bulls tomorrow as they’ll be playing against Eastern Province Kings also on Saturday.
Enjoy your sporting weekend for all you sports lovers.
