Vodacom Blue Bulls junior sides looking to go one better
23 October 2011

The Vodacom Blue Bulls junior sides will be looking to go one better in the finals of the Absa u.21 and u.19 competitions on Saturday, to be played at Coca Cola Park in Johannesburg, ahead of the Currie Cup final later in the day.

Both the Pretoria sides made the finals for a second consecutive year and will be looking to go one better than last year, when both lost to Western Province in the finals in Durban.

The u.21 side will play Natal on Saturday.

The Blue Bulls made the final by beating the Lions 47-18 at Loftus, while Natal managed to beat Western Province 19-12 in Cape Town.

The u.19 side will face the Lions, who edged out Western Province 32-27 in their semifinal clash in Johannesburg. The Vodacom Blue Bulls secured their place in the final on Friday when they scored six tries in a 48-13 romp over the Cheetahs at Loftus Versfeld.

Vodacom Bulls and Vodacom Blue Bulls utility player Gerhard van den Heever has transferred to Western Province and the Stormers.

The Blue Bulls Company (Pty) Ltd and WP Rugby on Monday announced that the 22-year-old player, who excels as wing and fullback, has signed with Province for two years.

Van den Heever was contracted to the Vodacom Bulls until October 31, 2013, but after successful negotiations between the two provinces, has been transferred to Western Province and will join them from November 1, 2011.

Ek het drie jaar terug voorspel, toe die WP 'n klompie senior bokke gekoop het, dat hulle hulself gaan toespin in 'n kokon. Rassie Erasmus het kitssukses gesoek om vinnig weer die beker kas op Nuweland vol te maak. Vandaar die aankoop van Habana, Fourie, Willem de Waal, Jantjes, Januarie. Daarmee wou hy 'n wenkultuur terugbring na die Kaap toe. Sy aanstellings van Coetsee en Fleck en Proudfoot is baie goeie afrigtingspan. Saam met die ervare hande het hy begin om akademie op die been te bring.

Sy sukses rate?

Rassie het groot oordeels fout gemaak. Sy jonger spelers was al te goed om uitgelaat te word en die ouer manne ongelukkig, het vorm verloor. Diegene wat sy loopbaan dopgehou het, sal saamstem dat Habana sy beste in 2007 gehad het en daarna nog geensins weer 'n faktor was nie - in elk geval by die Stormers is hy hoofsaaklik Stormram wat na binne breek. Rassie se ideaal om 'n kitswenkultuur in die Kaap terug te bring het klaaglik gevou. Hy het gedobbel met sy aankopies en aanvanklik het dit goed gelyk.

Die waarheid is: Sy ouer kopies kan nog nooit die druk van eindstryde goed hanteer nie - hulle is al in 2 finale en 2 semi - finale liederlik verneder deur die opponente. Vir die jonger spelers beteken dit natuurlik dat hulle deel is van wenspan deur die seisoen, maar hulleslef moet aanskou dat die senior ouens vou in druk situasies.

Rassie as suksesverhaal by die Stormers het weliswaar die regte strukture in plek kon sit, maar hy kon nie bekerkaste volmaak nie. Hy het dus meer sukses in Bloemfontein behaal met minder geld.

Vergeleke met verlede jaar se eindstryde is die WP vanjaar die groot verloorders . Verlede jaar was al drie die WP se spanne in die eindstryde betrokke.

18 Judge@14. Wat nou geword van jou lang speech van tyd gelede dat almal op Loftus moet wees geword. Skaam vir jou.
Watermeyer, sterkte ou maat, hoop hulle hanteer jou beter daar in die vreemde-taal-land.

NETBLOU

Klaarblyklik is lees en begryp nie een van jou sterkste punte nie. Ek KON nie Loftus toe gaan vanaand nie. My Vyfjarige dogtertjie het vanaand aan haar eerste buite skoolse danskonsert deelgeneem. Watter tipe ouer sal dit nie bywoon nie. Ek het nog nooit gesinspeel dat mense wat hul kinders se groot geleenthede bywoon nie getroue ondersteuners is nie. Ek het wel 'n kleintjie dood aan die ruggraatlose ondersteuners wie se enigste verskoning vir hul afwesigheid of Loftus, die span se vertoning is. Mense wat ander persoonlike redes het waarom hulle SOMS nie op Loftus kan wees nie, is net menslik. Die res wat weg bly uit bitterheid en 'protes' is diegene waarvan ek praat. Ek het die afgelope sewe seisoene drie wedstryde op Loftus misgeloop. Vanaand om my dogterjie te ondersteun, en twee keer omdat ek met die een voet in die hospitaal gestaan het. So nee. NETBLOU ek skaam my vir niks. Hoeveel; wedstryde het jy bygewoon? Hoeveel 0/19 en O/21 wedstryde het jy vanjaar op Loftus gekyk? Ek het elkeen gesien.

Gelukkig steur ek my nie aan sulke sarkastiese kommentaar nie. Sarkasme getuig van kleingeestigheid en ek sal nie daarin deel nie. Dit is hartseer dat hierdie blog 'n slegmaak plek geword het, waar mense sarkasties beledig word, en daar nie meer op intelligente wyse rugby gesels word nie.

Lekker slaap oom Ligblou. Ek verlang na die ou dae, toe rugby sonder onbeheersde emosies gesels is.
