    Thank you to all of our Black supporters in South Africa who arecoming along to see a great rugby display from the Baby Blacks their pace , game plan ,and superior skills and fitness will take the Baby Proteas apart. We aim to make it another misrable day for SA sport especially seeing your cricket team lost to Zimbabwee over night.We look forward to seeing all of those All Black flags waving madly in the crowd as we lift up the cup

      Dear Sir you confuse me? You won't be lifting anything. Your quasi alter ego New Zealand skipper will be lifting it IF they win. Your freakish obsession with a group of people in a country you have never visited really is weird. My dad says it's because that movie Once were warriors might as well have been shot in Grassy Park.Confused Craven

      Craven Luyt - 2012-06-20 22:54

      Dear Sir, sorry to bother you again but real NZ supporters respect their opposition, especially the boks, but you wouldn't know that because you have not been there. Surely if you are pretending to be a NZ supporter you would try to act like one. Even more confused Craven

      Like you c all those springbok supporters there in aukland and north harbour stadium haha braa think before u comment...julle maoris dink nie voor julle praatie shame

      @klark: There 's nothing as sweet as seeing an arrogant prick when he have to swallow his words....Good luck.

      ckrohne1 - 2012-06-20 23:59

      @klark: you must be believing that racial hate and an unpatriotic sentiment is cool, because this is what these SA's who supports the all blacks is all about.

      klark.kent.942 - 2012-06-21 01:22

      CK I dont think they support racial hate at all just support a team they love to watch and play. Just as many South African Fans wil lsupport other teams and clubs. I just think you are a bit pissed as they support another team. Looking forward to the game. I believe the arrogance was shown on here last week by the Bulls supporters who said they will smash the baby blacks seeing you havent been in a final in the previous 4 years (fact) I believe that is a pretty arrogant statement to make. Seeing the Blacks have won it for the last 4 years we can have every confidence (not arrogance in their ability to win) To put it very simply for you as I know you are as simple man. If you could only pick one team 50/50 and your life depended on it ! What team would you pick? With that I rest my case enjoy the game.

    Come on Cape Town support the young men sell out crowd is needed for a win they need us.

  • bootman.bokke - 2012-06-21 07:52

    Big mistake having this match at Newlands. We all know that in CT the ABs have more support than the Boks. I urge each and every AB supporter to head down to Newlands and get behind the baby Blacks. The young bokkies will be confused and say "Wat de donner gaan nou aan. Dis dan ons tuis veld"

      anton.bischoff - 2012-06-21 08:24

      Why call yourself Bootman.bokke. You support The AB's, very confusing the Bokke part in your name. Also seems you are a Stormer supporter, even more confusing. Seems you are a very confused man.

      cape.maori - 2012-06-21 08:58

      It is no longer called Newlands - we call it Crusader Park! We will be there in our numbers cheering for the Baby Blacks! Cannot wait!
