Another thing to remember. Up to about 4 or 5 years ago you'd have said only 2 maybe 3 kiwi teams too. The Blues are rubbish and the Highlanders, Canes and Chiefs were as inconsistent as the SA teams. I remember some big wins against all 3 of those teams.

Probably. E.g. as recently as last year four SA teams finished in the top 8 of the SR table.

Our problem is we never get them all really firing, there's usually one or two duds a season.

Have we ever had more than 2 ?

It was also reported that Matfield would approach FdP to assist him if he gets the job, even if at a consultancy basis. Could it be that FdP declined to help out and that poor Matfield does not feel himself up to it on his own?

Matfield should have no problem coaching the Bulls. After all, he was part of the coaching troika who coached the Boks during their most successful year in 2009.😉

Why on earth would you....as a much vaunted Springbok who has won pretty much everything.....want to take on the position of head stooge at the worst Super Rugby franchise in the country???

Basically it's like spitting on yourself.........in large volumes!!

Exactly!

Base on the performance against Exeter, Munster will not beat Glaucester at home.... On the other hand if Glaucester stop being a little bit inconvenient they can..
