    Didn’t the Stormers have the most Boks last year?

    Super Rugby 2019

    I'm getting too lazy to all the games.... Or just not that interested. I did watch the Bulls game and was pleasantly surprised by the variation in their play. Also by the decision making. It could have been better, but was good enough for a decent win. I do not want to say too much now, as they played against a rudderless team. Fleck's coaching has now come full circle. They have no plans on attack. The have no real system on defence and poor decision making all over. It looks more like a bunch of individuals thrown together for a festival game. And the reason I don't want to say to much about the Bulls play is because the score the Stormers were beaten with, is what one would expect from a half-decent team playing against an ill-prepared team like the Stormers. Those gaps were there last year already. But the other teams generally were just too poor to exploit it.

    To be fair if the other seamers couldn't get wicket Vern may not have made much difference. Given Vern is primarily a Test player if he wants to extend his international career he will need to start presenting in better condition or the soft tissue injuries will keep occurring. Extra pudding and back related hamstrings aren't mutually exclusive.

    As I say every year. Why do we waste our time playing tests in Durban. The pitch is shot, we lose at least an hours play everyday, and no one pitches up.

    I think it's true to say the nation is in shock Vernon needs to lay off the pies

    Stopped watching at 8 down and needing plenty. Fair effort by the Sri Lankans but I expect them to get thoroughly hammered next start

    Two beggars in London Ali and Habib are beggars. They beg in different areas of London ... Habib begs just as long as Ali does, but only collects £2 to £3 every day. Ali brings home a suitcase FULL of £10 notes, drives a Mercedes, lives in a mortgage-free house and has a lot of money to spend. Habib asks Ali :- 'I work just as long and hard as you do but how is it that you bring home a suitcase full of £10 notes every day?' Ali says, 'Look at your sign, what does it say'? Habib's sign reads 'I have no work, a wife and 6 kids to support'. Ali says No wonder you only get £2- £3 Habib says... 'So what does your sign say'? Ali shows Habib his sign.... It reads, 'I only need another £10 to move back to Pakistan

    He wanted that Michelle. If he pulls up sore they will all be bagging Faf for letting him bowl an elongated spell

    I think he has got more tricks than say a Paul Harris who used to block up an end to let the seamers rotate. The lad can bat as well which is always a bonus. 28 is better than Kumble

    The Maharaj comment was tongue in cheek, but he has got to 90 pretty quickly.

    Good record early for an offie. Still leaning towards Lyon given he has 343 test wickets and has played more than two Tests in Asia (which can be a double edge sword depending on who you are playing) but liking the lad (especially as he doesn't chuck it). Rabada has always looked like a low 20's Test bowler. Philander has done better than I thought he would. M Morkel was the anomaly - he often bowled without luck and finished high 20's from memory. Ngidi and Olivier are early doors but both look good and ready made replacements for Steyn

    Agreed. Most of his generation called it right. Smith, Kallis, AB, Morne. Boucher was on his last tour when he got the injury.

    I also proved Steyn was overrated. Olivier 18.19 Ngidi 19.53 Rabada 21.50 Philander 21.73 Steyn 22.81 Maharaj is the weak link @ 28.32 but still compares favorably with Lyon @ 32.24

    I hope he goes out on top with something left in the tank like AB. Nothing worse than seeing ATG's limping around at a reduced capacity

    Possibly the biggest misjudgement in the history of cricket threads. The scene was Steyn's first tour to Aus. http://flamingbails.forumotion.com/t4928-is-steyn-a-one-year-wonder
