I see rugby and indeed all sports is being attacked by actual imposters by the world changing events around Covid 19.

The world could very well coming to it's finality of deceit, lies and pure bullshit of last days and their impotent ways too overcome. It's not going to be the way politicians deceive us.../.it might very well be the end of every thing that we in the flesh hold on to. It's not set in stone but  the other extreme it certainly looks very wonky.

Erasmus was certainly an alarmist, he did Springbok rugby no favors with his chicken run.

It had nothing to do with Rassie Moz and if it did he made the right decision

SA rugby made the call not Rassie but you keep banging on about Rassie’s chicken run

Do you know on authority that it was Rassie that decided not to play in the RC?

In hindsight following the second waves of Covid in the UK and SA, it would have been a good idea to compete in the 4 nations. The situation is now worse than the first wave, and the B&I lions may not even go ahead. 


The teams were weak in the 3 Nations last year.
The All Blacks were anything but convincing, and the Boks should have put them away. (To retain the 4 nations for the second year running).

Australia is a weak team, and Argentina should have been put away reasonably easily. (especially without home advantage, given the tour was in Oz.

There was no reason we couldn’t have competed and done well, as the Bargies showed. We needed to play that rugby...by the time we play internationals, it will be like starting from scratch.

There was every reason not to play in the RC. We are number one in the world it took untold work to get there from 7th.

You don’t just recklessly throw that away playing against players that had played for months already and where the Kiwi’s and Oz had already played two tests against eachother

The Argies showed us a one off only to get slaughtered thereafter summing up that pride and passion only carries you one step, lack of match fitness and proper preparation was sorely exposed thereafter

100% correct decision made by SA rugby not to play. I want to see the Boks defend their number 1 spot on an equal playing field not taking stupid unnecessary chances undoing all that fantastic work in the process
