Winner of 2017 office Superbru pool reckons he ‘knows a thing or two’
Cape Town - Barry Graham, a
39-year-old Sales Manager from Johannesburg, has just remembered what a rugby
pundit he is after picking 2 out of 2 in the first round of the Super Rugby competition this
Having beaten 15
colleagues in the 2017 format of the popular rugby score prediction game, Mad
Dog, as he goes by in his online Superbru profile, has been anxious to see if
it was just luck last year or if he really is quite a rugby expert.
With Saturday’s picks having assured him of the latter, Mad Dog
turned the office kitchen into an impromptu episode of Boots and All this
Monday morning, handing out more advice and expert opinion than Nick
Mallett after a Bok game with Allister Coetzee at the helm.
Bystanders in the
kitchen confirm they heard a few stitches rip when he got down to demonstrate
the proper scrum technique the Sharks were clearly lacking this past weekend in
By the end of office
drinks on Friday afternoon, Barry is sure to be calling who will
occupy the semi-final berths and where they will be played, despite a number of
teams from the full roster of 15 having yet to even take to the park.
Any attention in Barry’s
book is good attention, and after a few eye-rolls in the kitchen and people
walking backwards while holding their tea trying to slip out of his
conversations, Barry is wondering if he may in fact still have what it takes to
run out onto the paddock himself.
Could it be possible he thinks?
little online search of a sporting retailer’s website really leaves Barry
wondering all afternoon.
Is R750 a little extravagant for a pair of boots to
keep in is car?
I mean he does drive past that club rugby practice every Tuesday
and Thursday and they could flag him down and ask him to fill an injury slot.
It’s possible right?
