Rugby Advancement Committee Established!

 

“We need to be patient. This process is still in process and the process will continue until we’ve transformed the team into what we envisage this process to deliver”

These were the words spoken by SA Rugby CEO, Jurie Roux, after South Africa’s disappointing performance against Argentina in Mendoza last week. Roux spoke after the first meeting held by the newly established Committee on the Rugby Advancement Plan, which consists of some of the greatest rugby minds in South Africa, tasked with coming up with solutions to improve the performance of South African rugby teams, and in particular, the Springboks.

Recent comments in the media by Nick Mallett and Jake White, has prompted Jurie to establish the committee to see if a working solution can be found to solve the general perception that South Africa can only play one brand of Rugby.  The committee is chaired by Jurie Roux and the members include Nick Mallet, Naas Botha, Peter de Villiers and Brendan Venter and the seat for current Springbok coach is held by Heyneke Meyer.

The Championship is over…but still lots to play for!!

Forget about the Rugby Championship.  By the Springboks not getting the full 10 points….or even just the 8 for that matter, against Argentina, and the All Blacks demolishing the Aussies, New Zealand has all but engraved their names on the inaugural Rugby Championship cup.

Team Meyer should now just focus on the bigger picture and not be concerned about winning the tournament.Rather build towards the end of year tour and get the pieces of the puzzle in place.

He should also perhaps forget about his statement about winning every match, and rather re-look at his approach to the game and what personnel he requires to deliver consistent winning performances over the long run. I know this is what he seems to be doing, picking personnel for the kick and chase, bulldozer game, but I don’t even think he has the right personnel in his side even for that game to be effective.

Running into spaces, not faces….

I’ve been neglecting this blog for a while and have not been updating it with my recent posts. If you want you can subscribe to my other blog to get all my latest updates.

“Rugby is not a contact sport. It’s a collision sport.” That is one of Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer’s quotes, and by now you will have seen that he is hell bound to stick with his philosophy of creating “collisions”.

It’s been a disastrous start for Heyneke Meyer’s reign as Springbok coach. One that he would not have wished on his worst enemies perhaps and made the Springboks the laughing stock of World Rugby this past weekend.

At least with Div, he was the “laughing stock” in media conferences, while our team did the business on the field.

The beauty of the Olympics….

 

So, when the SA swimming team have wrapped up all their events soon and with the Super Rugby drawing to and end, you might soon be out in the wilderness in terms of where to get your thrill fix.

Perhaps you are tired of watching gorilla-like, bearded women lifting weights, heavier than your mother in law and her chihuahua named squirt, over their heads?

Or tired of hoping for some eye candy in the women’s swimming events and then get put off by those huge, masculine shoulders and tiny boobs? Read the rest of this entry »
