    They might as well let the Stormers play. They are as 'Barbarian' as can be.

      There must huge empty spaces between your ears and a hat to cover the voids

      Barbarians score tries..the Stormers dont

      Thomas - 2012-05-28 19:19

      These games are a total waste of time!!! The "nobody of the nobodies" playind England. What an insult!! Rather play No's 6, 7 and 8 on the Currie Cup list or the Kings (never thought I'd say that) and have a structured game with spectators who support their team!!!

      john.kirkwood.9619 - 2012-05-31 11:21

      with the north side why didnt they just play the pumas in witbank, uj and a few other universities would beat these sides

  • tony.kirby1 - 2012-05-28 16:59

    SA Babas against England. Should be 2 cracker games against England.

  • Anthony - 2012-05-28 17:24

    This will be a cricket score

      Luke - 2012-05-28 19:19

      shows what faith you have in SA rugby

  • Luke - 2012-05-28 19:22

    Why not let the 2 teams play against each other leading up to the England game. The Northern side does seem to have a large number of Puma's players, but by saying that what has the Leopards and Valke got to offer. Why not use some of the Griquas players?

    Daar is so baie Pumas in die Noordelike Span, dis n wonder oom Jimmy gee nie sy stiefseun Gert (Waterkloof 4) weer n kansie om te speel nie.

    Currie Cup first division rugby is so weak it is embarrassing to watch when these teams play. Somebody must have paid or threatened the writer of this report to refer to "strong combinations". Strong, yes but only if the Barbarians were playing against the South African under 14 netball team. Neither of these two games will provide the English team with any sort of reasonable preparation for the tests. In fact; naming teams this weak to play England is actually an insult to the tourists.

    Would have thought more Bok fringe players and those left out would have made these teams. Would have liked to see Aplon, Brussow, Grant, Juan de Jongh, Van Zyl, Ash Johnson, Elton Jantjes, Josh Strauss (should ave captained the northern side at least). As it is the teams comprise a bunch of nobodies, and nobody will really care to watch or support these so-called Barbrians.
