    Bly dat Harno gekies is, maar ek dink ons wag nou vir die mediese verslag, dat ons hoor hoe dit gaan met Pollard, Viv En Flip
  2. gravatar Cornelius says:
    Jammer spelfout, nie Viv nie maar Vic
  3. gravatar David says:
    Am surprised Jurie Linde did not make the squad. Where is wing Duan van der Merwe who made the Baby Bok side last year?
  4. gravatar Paarlbul says:
    Good to see that I am not the only one that rates hooker Jan vd Merwe.

    David I also wonder about Jurie Linde and Duan vd Merwe, but then this is what this website is all about - brilliant communication.
