Converting opportunities yes, but preventing easy tries to the opposition should also get a big mention. How many easy tries have we given away on the outside this season? Outside man must mark the outside attacker! Stop getting sucked in! Trust your inside defenders! Don't create overlaps for them and you've solved half the problem!

"The South African Broadcast Corporation (SABC) made waves on Tuesday by announcing that it would start screening live English Premier League matches from this weekend.

The obvious question to have been asked is: How does the SABC have money for the Premier League, but not for the Springboks or Bafana Bafana?

That answer comes in the form of Kwese Sports, who through their parent company Econet have secured the free-to-air Premier League rights for the next three seasons.

Kwese are then able to sub-contract those rights to public broadcasters, and that is how the SABC have landed with the Premier League on its doorstep."

Why can't SARU nominate one CC game per weekend to be free-to-air and invite other players like SABC/eTV/Open View to bid on it?

Shouldnt have said a year. It should be 300m over 3/4 years

Perhaps they need to stop this classification and treat every nation as an equal. If they are going to keep having Tier 1 and Tier 2 then they need to have a separate World Cup to ensure that Tier 2 have a chance, but you cannot keep classifying teams and then expect tier 2 to compete vs tier one.

Perhaps the WC needs to be treated like 7's rugby with regards to trophies. That way the tier 2 nations also get to win something, after all WR are the ones who classify them as tier 2.

I wonder where SA falls... Are we perhaps a 1.5 tiered nation (on the brink of becoming 2nd due to the financial troubles?) We have been bleeding players to overseas clubs for years now...

Letting his team apologize on his behalf at 31 yrs... maybe its time this dolt put on his big boy pants and started taking responsibility for his own actions
