It's pretty hard for guys to accept but rugby is changing and has been for some time. Ireland have a 60% record against the Boks since 2004, England have 80% in last 5 and Wales have been knocking them down every so often. Australia and South Africa struggle to tour north for a long time and new Zealand was that last hurdle to get over. We're doing it. Europe is now the cradle of professionalism in world rugby and the most profitable. The technical and tactical gap exists but in our favour. Things are changing. Can the southern trio survive? Sa has more money but they are lagging far behind the other top 25 nations in world rugby. Australia we strong now but Australia doesn't like Union. Kiwis have drop in participation at grassroots and the technical edge is now gone. So they look more average now even though they are still good.

I thought Ireland would do well in the last World Cup... Wrong.

They have only beaten us once playing away since 2004 and we're the only country they've never won a series away against.

Moon you are confusing wee Rosie with the facts. 

The Southern Hemisphere sides tour the NH after a long grueling season. 

But face facts the NH sides crash and burn when they tour the SH. 

Even the LIONS end up getting beaten. Hahahaha. 

A very little success has gone to their heads. 

Rosie is a South African turncoat named Clean Cut.

Red Rosie, the blushing bride-to-be...
You can have your own opinion, but you can't have your own facts.
This is your "win" record against the mightly Boks.

Pretty dismal reading if you were an English man. But ou Rosie is Clean Cut a disgruntled saffa. The more the Boks win the more unhinged he gets. Hahahahaha.

You do realize the Northern Hemisphere have just played their summer tours at the end of a long grueling season.

But face facts the NH sides crash and burn when they tour the SH.

Players in the North usually play more games (and minutes) than players in the South.

Yep the Blockheads living up to their name. I bet they wonder why South Africa is never in Eurovision. 

Jul 18, 2022, 16:27

Well Red Rose, Israel is in Eurovision……! 

Jul 18, 2022, 16:30

What's Eurovision, a trans beauty contest. Bwahahaha. 

Sick pervs. 

Jul 18, 2022, 16:31

No it’s an abysmal so-called music competition 

Jul 18, 2022, 16:34

What the fuck is your point Becs?? You now saying Africa qualifies as Europe? Fuck me there is no hope for us all. On a par with those stupid yanks who think Utopia is a country and Utah is the capital of Washington. 

Jul 18, 2022, 16:38

My point is it’s not just Europe taking part in Eurovision. You alluded to the stupidity of South Africans for wondering why their country does not take part. Simple really. 

I know full well what Utopia is and that Utah is not the capital of Washington, thank you very much. 

Jul 18, 2022, 16:44

Israel is on the Eurasian stepps which connects three continents, big fucking difference Becs. Currently South Africa does not connect three continents. Currently no African country does!

Rosie, Europe is becoming Africa/Asia as the Great Replacement thunders on. 

The Brits have been brainwashed into thinking its an act of extreme virtue to hand their country over to invaders. Everyday boatloads are brought in.

They still think Labour or the Tories will save them. Unfortunately they or two sides of the same open borders Globalist coin. 

Time is running out for the British people. Sunak, an India and a Globalist could be their next PM. 


Very sad to see a great nation being destroyed. Ditto the USA, Canada, European nations Australia and N Zealand. All under the Globalust thumb. 

But there is a Great Awakening happening.

Hasbeen, that has nothing to do with what I was talking about at all!

                Please add water to that stuff you are drinking.

                A lot of water.

Another reason to end that foolishness of SA rugby moving up to the North.
