Cape Town - Sport24 produces - get this - over 100 articles a day. Yes, we're that awesome!

So naturally there'll be a few articles that even our most ardent readers will miss.

On the off chance you are one of those, here are our top FIVE stories that might have slipped your browser feed today!

1. BOSCH TO MAKE BOK DEBUT?

With Handre Pollard having been ruled out of Saturday's Rugby Championship opener against Argentina in Port Elizabeth, it looks increasingly likely that 20-year-old Curwin Bosch will be handed a Springbok debut.

There are the obvious arguments that Bosch is not ready to make the step up to Test rugby just yet, but a look at recent Springbok history suggests otherwise.

2. MANYONGA ATTEMPTS RECORD BREAKING ALPS JUMP

Jumping into new heights hasn't been more apt!

Newly-crowned world long jump champion Luvo Manyonga might set yet another world record after his golden heroics at the world championships in London.

This time height (or rather altitude) is certainly going to make this one unique world record attempt.

Manyonga and six athletes are competing 3 032m above sea-level on a specially-built long jump track in the French Alps.

3. YELLOW, RED CARDS SHOULD BE ADDRESSED

Yellow and red cards have become customary in modern rugby with at least one sin-binning per game seemingly the norm nowadays.

Sport24's Herman Mostert says that rugby coaches need to emphasise to their players how costly yellow and red cards can be and how they influence the outcome of matches.

4. BUCS REBUT JONEVRET'S CLAIMS

Orlando Pirates have taken exception to comments made by former head coach Kjell Jonevret.

Jonevret reportedly appeared on a Swedish television show and said how frustrated he was at the club and was not happy with the lack of communication from his superiors.

5. 'RED BOK JERSEYS SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE'

Former Springbok team coach Jake White has launched a scathing attack on the SA Rugby administrators.

White is referring to the red jersey, which the Springboks will wear in their away Rugby Championship Test against Argentina in Salta on August 26.

The jersey had been commissioned to mark the 25th anniversary of rugby unity in South Africa.
