    Lekker Hollies... Dink Hollies en Jaco gaan n groot faktor wees in die wedstryd! Elton, Hollies en Jaco is goeie verspreiders en dodelike verdedigers!!! Hoop die vleuels se hamstrings gaan goed gesmeer wees voor die game! Gehoop Mapoe kon ook speel, dink hy sal reg wees vir die final... Die naweek gaan se rugby gaan awesome wees...

      chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-10-18 23:02

      Hollies??? Seriously? I'm so glad WP players have real names that puts fear into the opposition like Tiaan, or SuperDuane and Super Deon. Eben! Scarra! Brok! Jebb!

      aubrey.gloster - 2012-10-19 06:59

      Shame Riaan, Jaco en Chrisin moet jullenname calling doenl omdat julle spannetjie chokers is?. Al wat Deon Super aan hom het is sy stel ore, Eben better bekend as Bettie, Scarra is wat jy in die Karoo 'n braansiek lammertjie noem, Brok wat kort is vir Brokoli? Jebb kon sy Ma nie Jeff spel nie?

      bakkies.botha.39 - 2012-10-19 07:04

      Joeleen Petersen, Getrtuida Aplon, Daleen Vermeulen, Adri Bekker, Ja dit sit vrees in enige WP man se broek!!!!

      aubrey.gloster - 2012-10-19 07:09

      @chrisin. Scary? Tiaan wou sy Ma hom Riaan noem? Duane rym met wyn, Al wat super is aan Deon is sy ore, Eben beter bekend as Bettie? Scarra die mamparra?

      aubrey.gloster - 2012-10-19 09:16

      @Marius: I did call Etzebeth, Bettie in his face and he started crying like a colic baby.

    ....Go Lions...!! ...moer the Cape Clowns..!!

  • chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-10-19 03:51

    When I look at the two teams the match-ups are pretty even. I think the Lions probably have the upper hand in the front row, unless Frans Malherbe gets substituted early on. WP's loose trio is probably better that the Lions', while WP might also just have the edge in the back three. In terms of gamebreakers, WP has Eben, Duane, Habana and Aplon, while the Lions have Jantjies Taute and Bondesio. I think the WP should take this one. Go WP Go Bulls

      chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-10-19 06:35

      jj.maritz. Nie so vergesog nie. Voor jy my na dokter spiertjies in Kanada toe stuur (nie dat ek lewendig uit sy operasieteater sal kom nie) moet jy eers try uitvind hoekom ek so se. Eerstens, daar is geen game met meer hype en atmosfeer as 'n Bulls/WP final nie. Tweedens, as dit 'n Bulls/WP final is, is die final op Nuweland - beter vir die WP. En derdens as mens kyk na onlangse rekord, het die WP die beste kans om die beker te wen in 'n final teen die Bulls. So hoe moeilik dit vir my mag wees om die Bulls in enige game teen enigiemand te support, moet ek se ek wens die Bulls wen die Sharks.

      aubrey.gloster - 2012-10-19 07:06

      @chrisin is jy nie 'n netbal coach nie? Wat soek jy hier? Jou opinies dui op totale onkunde. Maak spore meisietjie!!!

      Bakkies, don't worry about the cape clowns... Actually hope they make the final and you play them in CT, easier route to winning the CC for the Bulls!

      Jimmy NZ - 2012-10-19 07:15

      Come to think of it, I probably scream for the Bulls as much as I do for the Saders in S15!

      bakkies.botha.39 - 2012-10-19 07:57

      jimmy.moustache.12 - 2012-10-19 08:36

  • nico.pretorius.946 - 2012-10-19 06:51

    Great news this, Alwyn & Jaco should be too strong for the province mid-field, Lions to take this one and win the CC finals next week as well :) GO LIONS!!! Keep the cup in JHB :)

      chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-10-19 07:10

      It doesn't belong in Johannesburg. You want visiting Super Rugby teams to SA to be able see the most prized trophy in world rugby.

      juan.nel.16 - 2012-10-19 08:44

      Chrisin gaan sit in die hoekie vir eensames toe meisie.......

      nico.pretorius.946 - 2012-10-19 09:46

      chris, you also want the visiting super rugby teams to play our strongest teams, that is not happening either. CC belongs in JHB :) GO LIONS!!!

  • leonard.bulle - 2012-10-19 07:07
