Most sports in Aussie have either been cancelled (F1) or played behind closed doors (AFL, cricket)
These sure are crazy times were living in.
If Super rugby gets called off, then the Sharks needs to beat the Stormers today. If it gets called of we finish the tournament in first place and then can be considered forever champions.
Nah, last try wins. So it will be either the Jaguares or highlanders.
So tackle in the air from kick off no chance of catching the ball the player is injured yet only yellow .. BS that was a red card for the stormers
Im just happy there’s sports to watch
I've been saying this for 3 years (since i watched him on the junior springboks): I want bosch on my team, every single game. He misses a tackle every now and then (nothing too serious, like Ogara) and he cant charge like pollard, but his decision making is impeccable, and he is a jack of all trades. He can do anything reasonably well and most things exceptionally well.
I think the Sharks just won the 2020 Super rugby title. If it gets called of we are first but if they don't award a title to anyone than we can feel hard done by because they ending the season that we are showing some promise. So it's a catch 22 really
Trouble is he is not as good as Pollard. Maybe in the 23 but Pollard must start at 10
Landers jags called off...worst case for the landers as they still won’t get home before the deadline but didn’t get to play
I'm a huge Pollard Fan, so I'd use him as 15. I think Pollard's potential charge brings so much headroom to 12 and 13 that not using him is just silly. By charge i mean when he goes straight at the oponents FH. He puts so much pressure on 7, 10 and 12 (7 and 12 have to be alert in case 10 misses the tackle) that i understand why he needs to be there. I cannot comprehend Jantijes being picked ahead of Bosch tho. Or maybe i can but i staunchly disagree.
I'm gonna go on a limb here, but he (Bosch) has not much to envy from say, McKenzie. He is phenomenal as FB.
Problem is, as far as i understand, you cannot play FB for the springboks with Bosch's height and build.
The Bulls wingers were the showboating kings for the first 17 minutes of the game. After that Sevens convert got smashed by Lukhan Solokai-loto and Alex Mafi he seemed to go back into his shell and made no meaningful contribution for the rest of the game.
Super Rugby has been suspended due to Covid 19/coronavirus and I sure am going to miss it. It's my favorite of all the professional rugby organizations.

Why did Hurricanes play in the 2nd kits?
