Naas: Grant my Bok number 10

Peter Grant is his choice for the Springbok number 10 jersey at the World Cup, says Naas Botha.

“This is Peter Grant’s time and if he doesn't get his chance now then something is wrong with the decision makers.” – Darin Lotz

“Overrated...just like tortoise Vermeulen.” – JohnnyBB

“Peter Grant will only be the number one while Lambie is out injured.”

“Why not pick Grant?  Lambie was selected for the last Springbok tour and he didn't perform.  Morne Steyn is still a good player but he’s well short of form.” – Mozaha

“Grant shades Lambie because of his goal kicking.” - Ice

“Ag please, don't - how many tries did the Stormers score this season? Let's think back to the Lions tour.  Steyn proved himself then - Grant can go back to Japan.” – Gerrit

“Yeah, but how many tries were scored against the Stormers? Five in the entire season so far! The Reds scored six tries against the Bulls in a single game! So take it for what it's worth.” – Mr Mojo Rising

“Japan did Grant no harm at all!” – Mike@CapeT

“Good call Naas. Morne Steyn is too one-dimensional.” – Mike@CapeT

“Morne Steyn might be one dimensional, but it's one hell of a dimension.” – BardofAvon

 “Two years ago Spies could still tackle and hold on to a pass, Matfield could still steal a line-out ball and Fourie du Preez WAS still the best scrummie in the world. Forget the past, we live in the present and we are worried about the future.” – Outpost

“The only fault I can find in with Grant is his clearance kicking, he does not have a range of over 40 metres and puts his team under pressure!” – Thomas

“Then pick Frans Steyn at fullback and he can do the clearance kicks.” – Kosie

“Naas hits the nail on the head every time.” – BardofAvon

“Naas your rugby playing days are over. Steyn is a proven product. He saved our asses against the British Lions, destroyed the mountain goats in the Super final and holds several records. Grant will wilt like a little flower under pressure. Secondly it’s all about combinations and the best scrummie is in Pretoria.” – Hawk

“Since when did Sarel Pretorius play for the Bulls?” – Cliff Bradley

Warne denies using Botox

Australian cricket great Shane Warne has denied claims he used Botox or had a facelift, saying his youthful look was to do with moisturisers, healthy eating and exercise.

“I use moisturisers and I don’t look like I have had my face pulled back.” – Kingswing

“His facelift is pulled so tight he has a moustache now.” – Tonsil

“Good on you Warnie!” – Hunter008

“Dear Warne – Please let us women know the name of the moisturiser that you are using.” – IC

“Why can't celebs just ‘fess up and admit they had some work done? Get real Warne, you are 41 years old now not 14!” – Gn.de la Rey

Has Shane Warne gone under the knife? You decide...

After: Who strangled the cat? No Botox, or is Warnie spinning fibs?

Dan Carter offered R44m deal

Dan Carter, widely acknowledged as the best rugby player in the world, is on the brink of becoming the highest paid as well, reports The Daily Mail.

"Alwyn will play for 50 Bucks and a Big Mac." – Saffa Cat

“Next in line will be Quade Cooper. I believe he is even better than Carter.”  - Quinna

“He is the best flyhalf in the history of rugby and deserves it” – Iceman

“He's excellent, no Morne Steyn, but probably the 2nd best in the world.” – Effel

“If football players can earn ridiculous amounts, why can’t rugby players?” – Mummford

“Wayne Rooney still earns eight times more than that. Even fatty boom-boom Benni was earning twice that amount.” - Paul

Will Dan forsake his All Blacks togs for a whopping pile of dosh? (Gallo Images)
