    Ja, loop! Gaan speel vir n k_k span!

      It does not make sense, I thought their inclusion was to develop the eastern cape players, and now they import from outside their province...

      bootman.bokke - 2012-09-13 18:10

      Well..........all the other provinces has the best of the EC players, so the Kings will have to recruit from outside to be competitive for now and then the development can start. They are doing nothing different from what the Bulls, Sharks, Lions, Cheetahs and Province do.

      Markoes, soos die Kings nou speel, sa hulle die bulle maklik klop. Maar jy weet dit seker en nou braak jy al klaar gal. Shame .

      chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-09-13 22:37

      @fluffie. Dis jou held hier. Een conference cup in die kas op die Tuiste van SA Rugby (en 'n Vodacom cup). En zero, niks, boggerol in die kas op Moftus. Maak seer ne.

      blou.johnny - 2012-09-13 22:44

      ....hoekom is daar so baie wit spelers Cheeky Watson se span..?? ......dis dan die ANC se span...?

      thomas.cannon.712 - 2012-09-14 00:57

      I don't think any names mentioned in the papers are going to make the Kings a S15 team!!! They will have to come up with a few WOW signings to make the public even notice them!!!!

      @chrissie boy in Oz Lees asb weer my vraag oubaas se honne, of vra iemand om jou te hlep lees: Hoeveel Superbekers op Nuweland? (net die antwoordjie, geen opstelletjies)

      jaco.groenewald.731 - 2012-09-14 07:55

      stirrer.stirrer - 2012-09-14 09:40

      @fake stirrer: Baie volwasse. Steel my en chrisin.oz se profiles. Ons verwag eintlik niks minder van sommige BB ondersteuners nie. Sorry vir die res wat eintlik baie ordentlik is, maar daar is 'n paar vrot appels onder julle wat julle naam in die algemeen gat maak.

      chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-09-16 22:41

      @the real stirrer. Dis mos ons breinchirurg daar in Kanada se ou laai jong. Hy het nie veel tussen die ore nie en wanneer iemand onder sy vel inkruip dan steel hy sy profile. Dis deesdae so bietjie moeiliker, so eintlik maak hy maar net 'n fool van homself. @dr. spiertjies. Ek het jou eerste gevra: en hoeveel bekers, ENIGE bekers, op moftus. Te skaam om te se?

  • johan.pienaar.144 - 2012-09-13 17:18

    Hoop hy gee hulle ook so baie geel kaarte

  • bootman.bokke - 2012-09-13 17:21

    The Cheatahs let this guy go for Johan Sadie?????? Mind boggling........

    Geez and i thought the spears are going to develop their own team. Just another bullss$t story from chucky and co

      bootman.bokke - 2012-09-13 18:12

      I was going to tell you off......then I noticed your profile pic and realised that you're just bitter.

      smallies - 2012-09-13 18:26

  • garth.bellingan.1 - 2012-09-13 18:36

  • sarel.brits - 2012-09-13 18:40

    STRAUSS............is dead to me.

  • Generaal1 - 2012-09-13 19:23

    Ek sou graag vir Sias op 12 wou sien, Robert 13, en met Goosen op 10 ,die kombinasie sal enige span nameries gee.

      chrisinoz.fuffie - 2012-09-13 20:07

      Robert op 13?! Rook jy gras of is jy net 'n totale imbecile? Ek sal graag jou 13 keer teen jou plat koppie tik

      Generaal1 - 2012-09-13 21:37

      Snaaks dat manne soos Carel du Plessis, Danie Gerber en Helgaard Muller ,Robert as die toekomstige bok buitesenter sien maar jy dink nie hy moet 13 vir die Cheetahs speel nie ? Skoenmaker hou jou by jou lees .

      chrisinoz.fuffie - 2012-09-13 21:41

      @generaal Wanneer het hulle dit gese? Is dit nie dalk die stemme wat met jou praat nie, of is dit maar die grassies? As jy nie weet dat jy nie weet nie is dit gevaarlik oubaas se honne!

      Generaal1 - 2012-09-13 21:53

      @chris, Google “Ou-Bokke kies hul senters ” 2012/04/19 sport24. Robert speel tans 13 vir die Cheetahs, wil jy hom nou drop?

      chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-09-13 22:41

      @Generaal. Don't take dr. spiertjies (or chrisinoz.fuffie as he would like to be know now - probably named himself after his hero) serious. He is just a nurse in Canada that probably last saw a rugby game in 1968 if he ever saw one. Hy kan nie eers ordentlik op sy keybord tik nie, so ek twyfel of hy enigiemand sal kan tik.

  • nico.pretorius.946 - 2012-09-13 19:55

    phew, almost though it was the strauss the hooker, but this strauss is ok, just hope he's got an escape clause in his contract for 2014 when the queens is out of super rugby, though when they are back in vodacom cup he will prob be on his level.

      chrisinoz.fuffie - 2012-09-13 20:08

      @nico The Kings won't be out my boy, watch them beat our 17year cupless friends from the Cape and see them play Vodacom from 2014

      chrisinoz.fuffie - 2012-09-13 20:56

      @Steven Isn't it general knowledge? The Stormers

      chrisinoz.fuffie - 2012-09-13 21:15

      @Steven You talking about WP now, they are 11yr cupless. Stormers = 17years, since they started in 1996. Meaning they've NEVER won the Supercup in the history of the competition. Man, do you know of any sports team in the world that has been more pathetic?

      chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-09-13 22:43

      @dr. spiertjies. And the pink pansies are just so glad they don't play against the Kings in the CC next year. Because the Kings will be in the CC. Can't say the same for your fluffy pink maatjies from Tshwane.

      lablue.phoenix - 2012-09-14 08:58

      chrisnoz. Only 6 teams has won the Supercup. What's your point?

  • chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-09-13 22:34

    Fantastic development of Eastern Cape rugby......

  • ivan.sport.18 - 2012-09-14 09:22

    Terwyl ons onder mekaar stry en baklei oor wie het die meeste bekers in die kas, wanneer laas iemand gewen het, wie die beste senter is, ens, ens....koop die Kings spelers en berei hulle rustig voor vir volgende jaar se Super 15 reeks. Wat het Strauss se verskuiwing te doen met WP se 11 jaar sonder n beker, of die Bulle se insinking die afgelope twee jaar? Die Kings berei hulle voor om volgende jaar n paar spanne skrik te maak, en hulle steur hulle bitter min aan die res van die land se gevegte. Kyk net wie het hulle al gekry, en wie is nog op hul agenda om te koop. Daar mag dalk net volgende jaar vir sommiges van ons een groot verrassing wees. In PE word planne gemaak, en die res van ons baklei ondermekaar oor bekers.
