    So, Eddie Jones, how's the scummy Irish? Seems Karma is still a bitch.

    Nope.. I suppose @supersupporter has set the max to that. You need to go to the settings and delete some of your older images. Click the down arrow under your name then click on "My Attachments" and delete some older ones..

    I see one or two potential Bulls players in the Sharks squad. Why would you run and push players outside of the playing field with an official standing right there. I see the referees are now acting on the players in front of the kick-off (sometimes). Brumbies in front of the kickoff - nothing happened. The very next kickoff the Sharks (they were miles ahead though) get pinged. Another game that could have been won, had it not been for silly indiscretions and defensive lapses. Mapimpi is blisteringly fast but not a very good defender. Biggest mistake the Sharks ever made was to let Plum go..

    Rob Houwing, Sport24 chief writer Cape Town – Hang in there, Bulls supporters. Please … hang in there. The main overseas leg of their Super Rugbyseason is already looking a little gory on paper, courtesy of a second successive reverse on Friday, and by a deceptively wide-looking 41-28 to the Chiefs in Hamilton. Indeed, so much energy (though a lot of it so admirable and thrill-inducing at times) was expended by the tourists from the Highveld that there is a very good chance, regrettably, defending champions the Crusaders will only cash royally in their Christchurch meeting next weekend, when tour fatigue may well take root amongst the still inexperienced Bulls party. To top off a particularly taxing little run of fixtures, their “reward” for the long trek home to Pretoria is hosting just a few days later of domestic arch-rivals the Stormers at Loftus, before the eventual mercy of a bye weekend. So there is a fair chance that in table terms -- both SA conference and overall -- the Bulls will continue to slip southward in the period before any likelihood of movement back the other way. But should that possible scenario be a simultaneous signal for the long-suffering Pretoria faithful to switch off their interest, en masse, for 2018? Good grief, no. At least, you’d earnestly hope not. For make no mistake, a revolution is on the go at the once mighty, three-time title-winning franchise, with new head John Mitchell right at the fulcrum of a purposeful, patient regrowth drive that was always likely to be tough on the shock absorbers in its earliest phase. At very least, this re-emergence, this restoration of respectability as first objective on the journey, should manifest itself in a more pronounced, tough-nuts-to-crack phenomenon at Loftus, where a slew of winnable matches lies ahead in the final two-thirds of the season. The Australasian tour, even if does end nought from three, will have been the character-building, bond-forging exercise Mitchell no doubt wished for, and those Bulls devotees prepared to see the bigger picture will also remain justifiably optimistic that more consistent good times are on the not too distant horizon at all. Yes, this was the second tour clash on the trot where the Bulls ran out of gas, after a protracted period where their collective engine performed more like a Ferrari than the battered old farm bakkie evident for too much of the Nollis Marais tenure and the fading embers of Frans Ludeke’s stint, too. In Brisbane last week, the Bulls could not add a single additional point after a budding first 25 minutes (they eventually lost 20-14 to the Reds), and in the latest instance their 28th and sadly last point came in the 39th minute, Handre Pollard pressing a fourth converted try. It still meant that the Bulls commanded a not inconsiderable 28-14 advantage at the break, having contributed quite fabulously to a searing-paced first-half spectacle the equal of any of the hallowed, high-octane New Zealand derbies, for example. Jesse Kriel, the massively revitalised Springbok outside centre, seemed to be at the heart of virtually every move as the Bulls rocked the Chiefs, the 2012 and 2013 champions, with a series of blistering, delightfully-executed hand-to-hand raids. Pollard was also at his direct-style, and bullet-passing best (his broad kicking game strong as well) and the back three of Warrick Gelant, Travis Ismaiel and Divan Rossouw a major handful into the bargain. At the height of their verve, popular commentator Tony Johnson was moved to enthuse: “It is so refreshing seeing South African backs putting each other in space, rather than just bashing their way (ahead).” But it is also not unimportant to remember that the Bulls are still learning to produce such frenzied intensity and speed, and the wiser of observers would have been suspecting, even at the change-around, that the home team – far more used to such ceaseless enterprise, of course – would produce a spirited second wind after their initial angst. With beasts like a smouldering Brodie Retallick to the fore, the Chiefs began not only to run around tiring Bulls foes, but also bash some concerted holes through them. It helped not a bit that the Bulls had to play the second half without one of the premier tight-five athletes, RG Snyman, as he fell victim to a nasty but accidental cheek bang that saw him sink like a stone in a pond. Indicative of the Bulls’ spirit and confidence at the time, the lanky lock optimistically tried to play on, but he was then yanked for the wise concussion test, and that was him done for the night. The tide was discernibly turning, and when reserve prop Conraad van Vuuren earned a yellow card that could easily have been red for a cynical late shot on Chiefs playmaker Damian McKenzie well into the final quarter, the Bulls’ fire was properly doused. They kept having a go, though, and at six points down, a minute after the siren and still trying desperately to launch a game-stealing counter, a turnover and last Chiefs try cruelly robbed them even of a second losing bonus point on tour which would have been useful both morally and mathematically. Still, there was ample enough reason for a smile through the tears, from Pretoria living rooms. And when could you say that last season? The Bulls have no reason to crumple the current, genuinely exciting script …

    Dit is teen hierdie tyd heel duidelik dat jy ook nie van Pollard hou nie, en heel tereg ook. Ek verstaan nie wat gebeur het nie. In sy junior jare was hy baie goed (of die opposisie was kak) - het dit dalk iets tedoen met die hedendaag se neiging om al wat speler is in Charles Atlas te wil omskep? Ek's oortuig dat jy baie vaart inboet as die beenstruktuur hom nie toeleen aan "bukl" bou nie. Ek dink nog steeds dat al die spier bouery een van die groot redes is vir baie - indien almal - ligament beseerings. Kyk na die ou amteur spelers, hulle was of natuurlik groot en sterk of die fokkers kon hol soos hase. Ja, ek's bewus van die veranderinge en professionele bla, bla, maar ek dink nog steeds dat 'n speler se natuurlike vermoeëns beinvloed word deur spierbou en nie noodwendig tengoede nie. Lood is regtig soms plain fokken dom. en 'n swaaiende arm is verneinig en stupid - veral as jy die spel wil wen. Daai maak my dink aan die bietjie industrieële rugby wat ek saam met fabriek werkers gespeel het, dit hoort gewoon gladnie by die spel nie.

    Absolute masters! Snatching defeat from the jaws of a decent win... RIP Bulls!

    😧Mrs. Esposito comes to visit her son Anthony for dinner. He lives with a female roommate, Maria. During the course of the meal, his mother couldn't help but notice how pretty Anthony's roommate is. Over the course of the evening, while watching the two interact, she started to wonder if there was more between Anthony and his roommate than meet the eye. Reading his mom's thoughts, Anthony volunteered, "I know what you must be thinking, but I assure you, Maria and I are just roommates.'' About a week later, Maria came to Anthony saying, "Ever since your mother came to dinner, I've been unable to find the silver sugar bowl. You don't suppose she took it, do you?" "Well, I doubt it, but I'll email her, just to be sure." So he sat down and wrote an email: Dear Mama, I'm not saying that you "did" take the sugar bowl from my house; I'm not saying that you "did not" take it. But the fact remains that it has been missing ever since you were here for dinner. Your Loving Son, Anthony A few days later, Anthony received a response email from his Mama which read: Dear son, I'm not saying that you "do" sleep with Maria, and I'm not saying that you "do not" sleep with her. But the fact remains that if she was sleeping in her OWN bed, she would have found the sugar bowl by now. Your Loving Mama Moral: Never Bulla Shita you Mama
