Div's book no best-seller

2012-05-21 14:03

Cape Town - Former Springbok coach Peter de Villiers's autobiography isn't heading for best-seller status if Sport24 readers are to be believed.

The autobiography, due out in June, promises to provide a no-holds-barred account of the difficult decisions De Villiers had to make during his tenure as Bok coach which came to an end in late 2011.

In a poll on the Sport24 website, a staggering 86% of the respondents either weren't prepared to "waste their hard-earned cash on the book (65%) or were "waiting to hear more about it before deciding" (21%).

Only 14% were planning on being first in line to discover "what went on behind the scenes".

The book "Politically Incorrect" can be pre-ordered from Kalahari for R139.95.

      Ja Jacques ek hoop net soos jy dat ons ons regmatige plek terug neem en die beste span word in die Wereld. Maar ou maat Peter het ook sulke drome gehad en as ons maar net n bietjie erkening gee aan die ou en van sy uitsprake sterker ondersteun dan sal ons dalk maar net dalk nie weer toelaat dat die Skeidregters die reels verkrag om ons te bedonner nie. Peter was reg met n paar van sy klagtes oor swak beslissings en dubbele standaarde. Gaan jy weer vir Heynecke se shutup , die ref is reg of gaan jy dan die guts he om te se Peter jy was tog maar reg. Selfs toe HM die Bulle afgerig het het ons die gatkant van beslisings gekry. Dink jy die ander twee SANZAR venote gaan nou skielik eerlik blaas? Nee wat ou maat ek weet dat as Peter net die helfte van sy games wat die Refs geroof het van ons Springbokke gewen het was hy nou loshande die suksesvolste afrigter teen ons major teenstanders , die ABs en die Aussies.

      @kobus Springbokke gaan nooit die bester span in die wereld word nie maak nie saak wie hul afrig nie

      Corne - 2012-05-22 07:30

    I think Blitz is cheaper, beside it will make my food taste funny if I use it to light the fire with!

      Philip - 2012-05-21 14:39

      Will definitely leave a bad taste in your mouth!

  • Fred - 2012-05-21 15:26

    Thanks heavens that awful, wasteful time is over.

  • Hans - 2012-05-21 15:47

    I would rather kill myself with a broken hammer than read his drivel.

  • Rob - 2012-05-21 18:06

    Who cares?

  • moregareth - 2012-05-21 18:08

    Should be riveting!

  • Warren - 2012-05-21 19:12

    Judging by his communication skills its probably a puzzle book with the answers in the back for easy reference.# Soekduku

    This book will make for some interesting reading.It will divulge the double standards in South African rugby for once and for all.Incidentally I've just read a portion of it in one of the newspapers today.For all the die hard critics of Snorre lets read the book and then you can have a field day.However be bold enough to give credit where credit is due.As workers we all call for fair and consistent treatment and lets wait and hear what the facts were from Snorre's side.Looking forward to the book.

    Well I heard he was struggling to handle our \workers day\ holiday not so long ago,now he makes a book of he's 20 percent winning record...what a role model

      Corne - 2012-05-22 07:17

      Snorre got a winning record of 60 percent

  • Corne - 2012-05-22 07:45
