All those credentials mean nothing, the most important ones are

1. How long is the strings attached to the ANC

2. How good is at listening to what they bark at him.

That is what will matter..

So i guess the verdict has been made and the Jurie is in... :36_19_7:

B - we need to give him the benefit of the doubt - anything is better than the guy he is replacing. I understand the sentiments toward the ANC but if he is a good administrator he will live with it. did you see who were the others on the short-list? Harold Verster and Andre Watson...Eish!

I must admit, I am a bit torn about Verster not being selected.

If Verster was selected, chances are it could go a bit better for Cheetah rugby, but hey, I love the Boks too.....

Johan Prinsloo isn't that bad... At least he bought me a beer in Dubai... If someone buys me a beer he can't be ALL bad!

This guy is the real deal. He looks the part, he talks the talk, and has walked the walk. Did great work for the Varsity Cup too. You guys are in good hands it seems.

Saw some interviews with him. Sounds intelligent.

He is the Big Boss at the Cheetahs. He is also the Chairperson of some or other committee in SARFU. I think chairperson of the Presidents Council or something like that. He is also a big idiot.

He lacks one important claim to fame on his CV and that is:

He has not spent some time in jail or is part of the gravy train and thus wont be treated by the Elite as one of them.

Short and simple: He is a doos and was one of Jake White's biggest critics.

he was also the one who assured all and sundry that the Cheetahs had moola in abundance and would definitely make the grade in the S14. He was also the first to say that the Cheetahs loose players and are suffering in the S14, because they do not have the money to keep their players.

So he is a walking paradox... laugh.gif

In the wake of the recent court findings on Jurie Roux December 2021, it is interesting reading some of the older comments posted here.
