Just Nuisance is the only canine in South Africa that has a National Monument dedicated to him. He is also the only dog that achieved rank status in the armed forces. In this Pic he is wearing the cap of a sailor from HMAS Canberra who JN no doubt accompanied on his shore leave at Simons Town Harbour near Capetown to the local pub. Thought it an apt expression of my appreciation of the sporting ties between our 2 countries...

I don’t see how that fits nroko, Current SANZAAR contracts still have up to 5 years to run.. To dissolve that ALL parties will have to hash out an exit strategy.. All will have to be in agreement.. No single member may simply exit or pull the pin.

Sorry Australia, the other two nations will supercharge southern hemisphere rugby

Correct, nobody has dumped anyone.. On the contrary Mark Robinson very recently confirmed NZs commitment to their partnership with SA Rugby.. In fact Highly committed was the language he used.. Conversely SAs Jurie Roux has also reiterated South Africa’s commitment to SANZAAR.. However all controlling bodies recognise the need to reevaluate Superugby and in the light of the pandemic nobody as yet has any clear direction. The fake news that one or the other party going it alone is media /social media driven..even the sentiment that SA is going North is not supported by any concrete facts and in fact public sentiment is split right down the middle with many, myself included wanting no part of it.

My first thoughts were.. Oops.. This won’t go down too well.. But after a while I came to the conclusion… So what..! .
Jurie Roux the CEO of SA Rugby recently said and I quote loosely… ” nobody knows what Superugby is going to look like going forward But it definitely won’t be anything like it has been in the past”… Since the early termination of this year’s comp there has been tons of speculation and proposals.. Most prominent has been a comp excluding SA and Argentinian teams.. A Trans Tasman comp.. It has generally evoked quite a bit of support here and not a lot of opposition.. But then again this is an Australian site.. The same proposals evoked serious pushback and plenty of anger on SA Rugby sites. I’m not sure of the viability of Soup Bones model but in the absence of anyone else having a clue including the administrators of SH rugby teams, why not throw it out there for discussion.

How can anyone not… 😂

Phil Kearns will run Australia's 2027 Rugby World Cup bid

Oh yes.. Lion is almost 1/2 the price of Castle.. Amstel a little more expensive. Great beer tho. Tell that to your friend but remember to come with yourself 😂

I don’t disagree… But they are in the race to win..

Big big drawcard is the cost of travel to South Africa.. At R17. 00 to the USDollar.. On the beer index ( A Just Nuisance adjustment to The Big Mac Index) thats a Castle lager in a pub for a single dollar.

That’s for sure…. Lots of things I am disliking around the pandemic right now but just have to adjust.. What other choice really.

Nice

Yes Russia is a very serious bid. Putin has already publically pledged his support.

Boks are a unified team..? Where you been last few weeks..

Kwagga brings a very different type of game to the table than Vermuellen does.. He certainly gives 110% and wont let a team down…watched your footage and not a lot of looses in town with his pace and energy for sure.

Has Broad pulled the wool over our eyes?

. I was 17 years old and was conscripted into The South African Army.. A few weeks before being transferred to The Angola Border, a warzone we were given leave to say our goodbyes .. Went to a pub with my mates, tried to buy a beer and was refused.. (underage).. True Story..

Joseph Suaalii playing NRL before he turns 18 is literally a matter of life and death

During the 1990s South Africa toured the West Indies.. A public spat between the WI board and its players spilt over into the public domain leading to a boycott by fans of the match. It was surreal watching a full International played out in front of empty stands.. Little did I realize that 20 or so years later I would be witnessing it again.. It didn’t work for me then and I’m afraid it doesn’t today either.

And they still trying to figure out what went wrong.. But Boks always save their best for England.. Historical payback. Stuff like that.

Yup we the only country in the world that’s got it the right way round 😛

A suggestion for a follow up article
… Now a proposed Lions team..Brian O’Driscoll has already put his out and has Itoje at flank… Thoughts?

Working on it mate.. ????

Living here HM In the very epicenter of the pandemic I can’t possibly see it either.. Big question is how long prior to the tour must a final call be made.. Surely not less than 8 weeks.. So time is already running out.. A small positive tho, on Friday the SA Govt approved full contact rugby..

Not Fassie ( 15).? A genuine game breaker.

My Springboks starting XV for the 2021 Lions series

Ben he is such a fantastic 7s player and many tend to think that automatically defers to a quality 15s man.. It doesn’t of course.. Throw in the Bok style of play and there is no room for a lightweight nr 8..just wouldn’t make sense..

And he is that too. I’ll make a bold prediction.. In a few years time we will be looking at him as one of the games greats in that position.. Works real hard on his all round skills, particularly his off loads , throw in his monster frame and height which can’t be bought and he is the whole package deal..
