  1. WHAT A FANTASTIC RUGBY GAME, THE FINAL OF THE SUPER 15, 2014. I THOUGHT, AT ONE STAGE, THAT THE ‘TAHS WOULD SUPRISE THE WORLD AND RUN AWAY WITH THE GAME. CHAMPIONSHIP MATERIAL, THE ‘SADERS, CAME BACK STRONGLY, ONLY TO BE BEATEN AT THE DEATH. A GAME WELL PLAYED, WELL REFFED. I WONDER WHEN SA TEAMS WILL PLAY THE GAME WITH “BALL IN HAND” INSTEAD OF KICKING THE DAMN THING AWAY. COACHES PLEASE NOTE, KEEP THE BALL, RUN INTO GAPS NOT INTO PLAYERS, TACKLE LOW AND HARD AND MOST IMPORTANT CONCENTRATE FOR 100 MINUTES OF THE 80 THAT YOU ARE ON THE FIELD
