Sex okay, but Boks must pay

Johannesburg - The Springbok players participating in the Rugby World cup have been given the thumbs up for as much sex as they like, but will have to pay for their partners to be in New Zealand.

SARU has given the Springboks free-reign to go wild in the bedroom, but will not pay for the accommodation and transport of the wives and girlfriends of the players.

Speaking to the The New Age newspaper, Springbok communications manager Andy Colquhoun said sex was not an issue.

"There is no prohibition on the players to see their partners or have sex for that matter during the World Cup," he said.

Colquhoun said the players were "mature athletes", and would be left to their own devices - as long as it didn't disrupt the team plans.

"At SARU we leave everything to the player's discretion but there are no specific rules against it."

From a physiological perspective, having sex increases testosterone levels, which causes an increase in strength, energy, aggression and competitiveness.

Sports scientist Tim Noakes has championed the benefits of sex for Springbok players in the past.

"It is a normal human activity, and the key is that life must go on normally. It is less exertion than two scrums. I wouldn't ban it."

    WTF??? Why must the sprinboks sex life be talked about??? We hear enough about the stupid RWC already!!!!

      Charles Small - 2011-08-25 12:16

      I think it is, that if the Boks lose in the RWC, people can atleast say they got screwed in a way that was enjoyable to them.

      My ouma het altyd gese: n Pomp op sy tyd is soos brood en konfyt......baie goed vir jou!!! Gee hulle gas bokke...ek praat nou van die All Blacks. (Moes dit clarify voordat Bloody Agent my ook na sy Kindergarden Hof toe wil sleep)

      Why did you read it?

      Bootman - 2011-08-26 09:46

      Wynand Olivier doesnt make the squad, and suddenly they are allowed to take their wives. Makes you think what Wynand's role in the team was......

  • Werner - 2011-08-25 12:01

    Why is this newsworthy.

      DeonL - 2011-08-25 12:30

      The All Blacks was told to abstain from sex during RWC, we will see who made the right choice.

      Logoll - 2011-08-25 12:30

      Because we often hear the other side of the story where the players are banned from having sex or having contact with the wives or girlfriends.

      donkerhond - 2011-08-25 13:17

      I honestly thought, based on the title of the article, that it was about hookers

      GraemeBB - 2011-08-25 18:30

      LET THEM SHAG! OK, lets go back to rugby. This is a private matter. Thanx alot.

  • Taboo - 2011-08-25 12:06

    This is the biggest load of cr@p i have read in a while. Goodness are there not other good stories to write about.

      Currie_Mafia - 2011-08-25 12:44

      I listening to Ard or Ras sing the national anthem !

      GinSA1 - 2011-08-25 13:08

      Yah, this was truly the biggest load of crap imaginable. How is this worthy of publication? Eish N24 - is there no level you stop at. Why would I want to have a vision in my head of Smit or Matfield making noises with whoever, wives, jintu's, ffs man?! Gutter publication in the making.

  • Mad Hatter - 2011-08-25 12:09

    Lighten up guys, it's just a good chuckle on an average slow-news Thursday.

  • BLOODY AGENT - 2011-08-25 12:10

    Solank hulle nie Suzie oor nooi nie

  • Hanjo - 2011-08-25 12:16

    very misleading headline.

      EleneDB - 2011-08-25 12:39

      google bietjie 'kopskrywer' - dis hulle werk om jou die berig te laat lees!

      Hanjo - 2011-08-25 12:47

      dis nogsteeds misleidend of dit nou n goeie of n slegte ding is.

  • Jackool - 2011-08-25 12:20

    ...but the question is, can the Bulls players take their boyfriends with?

      BLOODY AGENT - 2011-08-25 12:23

      wow what a chirp,and you came up with it all by yourself? im impressed

      Erasmus - 2011-08-25 12:25

      Ek is 'n moerse Blou Bul ondersteuner en ek vind dit moerse snaaks! Well done!

      user_24 - 2011-08-25 13:02

      Now that was a good laugh, and glad to see Bull's supporters can take it in the spirit it was meant.

      Serias - 2011-08-25 13:30

      Oh man,this was hillarious.......classic!!!

      Albo - 2011-08-25 15:53

      So who is taking you with BLOODY AGENT, or have you been dumped??

      Will2.0 - 2011-08-25 16:20

      I tip my hat to you, sir. Even as a bulls supporter I had to chuckle at that.

      JuanT - 2011-08-25 17:21

      hulle hoef nie want die wp spelers is klaar saam op toer

    Power to sex. Phambili Bokke!

  • Mike Hoxbig - 2011-08-25 12:31

    SARU - turning wives into ho's :P

  • Tatunka - 2011-08-25 12:35

    Nothing wrong with sex the night before a game, as long as you don't spend the whole night up looking for it, lol.

  • nobokjoy - 2011-08-25 12:40

    who wants to know who is swinging whose balls,let them pomp if they want to pomp,keeps their angel skerp.

  • Wallaby - 2011-08-25 12:44

    The Boks will be out of the tournament in the group stages with this lot behind them. Wales is on a roll, Samoa is itching to take them on, not to mention Fiji. Ouch. Well, at least the Boks should, theoretically, be able to beat Namibia. It's not all dark and gloomy.

      Albo - 2011-08-25 15:55

      You`re just upset because the ozzies could`nt take their sheep with.

      kAASkOP - 2011-08-25 16:01

      Jy's net jaloers omdat ons vrouens het en julle moet skape n...

      Will2.0 - 2011-08-25 16:22

      The Aussies are sending their WAGs as well, but they'll be in quarantine until after the competition.

      Wallaby - 2011-08-26 12:32

      Albo: no, YOU'RE the sheep. And we won't meet you in the knockout stages because you'll be back in SA by then. Oh, well, there is still next year again.

  • Stuka - 2011-08-25 12:46

    I hope the score more than I do...

  • African_meisie - 2011-08-25 12:52

    Why does this make the news?

      Will2.0 - 2011-08-25 16:40

      Online news publishers are not in the business of informing the public, they're in the business of making money, and news is their product. Mislead or not, we all navigated to the page and played our part in ensuring remains the largest online publisher in the country. Also, if you could, would you let the opportunity pass by to publish a headline like that? Brilliant!

    The biggest myth of ALL TIME, per population.....SA have the ugliest woman out of ten, you idiots try and pretend, you're a joke, per pop, you're a joke

  • Jan - 2011-08-25 13:45

    JK, Schalk will put your sick head where the sun don't shine. anyway, I think the woman had more dignity in herself than to sleep with a wanker like you

  • Roy - 2011-08-25 13:57

    Wow! Now we are guaranteed to lose the World Cup because as it is at the moment with all our "crocks" our guys will be to tired to play rugby. Mind you,this could also be our excuse.

  • Ingie - 2011-08-25 14:12

    who cares

  • Redwine - 2011-08-25 14:17

    At about R65k for such a trip I rather have take aways. They will give you very good room service at about R3k a pop. That means three weeks if you have it every night and you still have some spare change sanse all the other spending and bitching. The boks are not going to last that long in the competition anyway - let her stay home and watch it on the telly.

  • gharri - 2011-08-25 14:48

  • Zolani - 2011-08-25 15:12

    • On the 1st of September, the boys leave for New Zealand and you can give them a champion’s send-off. Be one of the rugby mad South Africans at Nelson Mandela Square sending the Boks on their way. It’s The Fans' Farewel

    Players should be warned that too much sex before a game is a no no as it can be very enegy draining and makes you drowsy.

  • Racist_Kila - 2011-08-25 15:36

    In soccer, WAGs are not allowed anywhere near the players.They believe it will take away their focus and make them underperform

  • Ettienne - 2011-08-25 15:56

    Well if the boks can't score on the field they can score in the bedroom

  • BardofAvon - 2011-08-25 16:21

    Great headline.

  • GT - 2011-08-25 16:42

    I don't expect much will happen for these poor girls. The forwards will bash it up the middle and the backs will stand around playing with themselves all night

  • StBad - 2011-08-25 16:51

    What's it got to do with them anyway?

  • brok3news - 2011-08-25 17:20

    "Less exertion than two scrums" ????? Two minute Tim?

  • Zion - 2011-08-25 17:42

    Bakkies Botha better refrain from sex as he is violent and crazy enough without it.

  • chrisbc - 2011-08-25 18:30

    Misleading headline. Must the bokke have sex with hookers or do they pay their wifes/girlfriends?

      biskit - 2011-08-26 07:37

      Joost did it

  • Dips - 2011-08-25 19:29

    Sorry for my ignorance but is this the actual picture of the sex machines going to New-Zealand?

  • Deon Daniels - 2011-08-26 09:45
