  • Oval Ball - 2010-07-16 15:18

    @ Richard.. I would rather know who the commentators are - they can really stuff up my enjoyment of a game... My least favourite is Andy Capistanio (cannot be botherred to spell his name correctly) I cannot undertand how he remains employed he is so bad!

  • Priester @Balsak - 2010-07-21 21:04

    Balsak some of your predictions are good, Sharks win no more than 20+, Province, I think you are fair and I agree, Griquas win with no more than 15 and my beloved Bulls will win, narrow margin (2-7) but they will win. Geniet die games! Blou Bul Groete!!

  • Tubs - 2010-07-28 15:30

    I am flying from London to see the Cheetahs-Sharks game. (OK, there are other things where I need to be as well.) I really hope it is a good game and that the Cheetahs use the thinner air to their advantage: run the Sharks ragged. And be clever and score a try against the bottom of the is less distance to go and you have an extra, solid, LEGAL defender!

  • BALSAK(alias Blue Bul Hater) - 2010-07-29 15:04

    My predictions for ROUND 4: 1. Griquas by 15 2. My BELOVED WP by 20-30 3. The Cheetahs by 3 4. I believe the Lions can win this one ,but I think the Blue Bulls by 10. Priester???

This is going to be a TOUGH game, but griquas have beaten them in KBY, so I predict a NARROW win for the BOYS from Kimberley; GAME 4.(WP en CHEETAHS) Walk in the park, WP by 10, including a BONUS point.

  • Koos Kaap - 2010-08-27 13:01

    En waar is Bees Roux dan? Ek het gedink iemand word as onskuldig geag tot tyd en wyl hy skuldig bevind word. Ou Bees, dit lyk my jou kak het 16 September 2009, die dag toe jy toegelaat het dat die Blou Bulle jou by die Griekwas poach, begin

  • Piet Verdriet - 2010-09-01 11:32

    @Koos Kaap. Hierdie poging van jou getuig definitief van die gebrek aan opvoeding wat jy gehad het. Bees Roux is onskuldig tot tyd en wyl die hof beslissing gevel is. Los die regs sake vir die hof en bepaal liewer jou onnosselheid by die rugby waarvan jy duidelik nog minder weet as van die reg. Jy moet 'n kop dokter gaan sien want jy het beslis al jou varkies verloor. Jy maak my naar en as jy naby genoeg was het ek 'n PUKE WATSON OP JOU GETREK. SIES JOU ONBESKOFTE VARK!!!!!!!

  • BALSAK(alias Blue Bul Hater) - 2010-09-01 12:54

    My PREDICTIONS for round 9---- (1) Griquas by 7 (2) Pumas by 10 (3) WP by 10-15 points and (4) VERY TOUGH and PHYSICAL game ,but the SHARKS by 15.... WP groete.......

  • Robz - 2010-09-01 13:23

    Die Bulle gaan weer hul alie sien. Slegs in twee wedstyde uit agt het hul 'n dubbelsyfer gehaal in punteverskil. Die eerste teen Pumas met +23 en toe teen Lions met +14. Twee van die ander het hul gewen met groot tellings maar die opponente het ook groot tellings aangeteken wat beteken daar is geen verdediging nie. Teen Griquas was hul gelukkig om te wen omdat die skop mis was. Die Pumas het in die laaste wedstryd vier driee teen twee gedruk. Die Sharks gaan die Bulle uitmekaar hardloop in die eerste helfte sodat die hoogte hulle nie sal inhaal in die tweede helfte nie.

  • Priester - 2010-09-01 18:36

    Greetings from Darfur! Just returned from leave and I must admit I actually missed the drivel spewed by some on these forums, Dagse ou Balsak!! Ja ou jou spannetjie is maar net so kak soos my geliefde Bulletjies. I think some of your predictions are OK however I would be very concerned if I was a WP supporter! Bulls should win by 4-6. Bloubul Groete!!

  • lala - 2010-09-02 14:17

    What happened to Richard Lawson in the Griqua team? Anyway - hoping the Griqua's and Sharks take there games. They my favourites for the season. I really dont want the Blue Bulls near the finals !!! SICK OF THEM

  • Jaco - 2010-09-03 10:30

    Dagse almal my voorspelling vir die naweek is:1)pumas wen 8-10punte,2)vrystaat wen 5-7pumte,3)leeus wen 8-14punte en 4)sharks wen 2-5punte groetnis aan al die leeu-ondersteuners Kom manne trek aan julle leeu truie

  • LLoyd - 2010-09-03 10:35

    Please Griquas you must win tonight. I dont know how but you must.

  • BALSAK(alias Blue Bul Hater) - 2010-09-08 19:55

    My predictions for round 10--))))) (1) Pumas by 5 (2) Griquas by 10 (3) WP by 40 and (4) The Cheetahs by 7-10 points!!!! WP groete.....

  • Priester - 2010-09-09 10:24

    It seems some unions will go to great lengths to prevent the Bok players to return to the CCup teams. No need to remind them what happened last weekend when the log leaders got trashed by a 3rd team. The Bulls (as in the case of WP) suffered early injuries resulting in them fielding some players who would not even make the bench when the Bulls are playing with full strength. These very “3rd” rated players proved that the mighty Sharks can be beaten. These “3rd” rated players need to prove themselves and are giving their best. It is therefore fair to assume that the Bulls without their Bok players will still be a force to reckon with. They will be wounded and they will be at their most dangerous. Blou Bul Groete!
