Boks win White’s final test in charge

leave a comment »

For me there is always a sense of ennui after a major sporting tournament. So I was not particularly looking forward to the game against Wales, especially after the furore over Jake White’s resignation, and did not get to see it as we had other plans.

It is good to see though that the team gave him a fitting send-off, beating Wales 34-12. Now all that’s left is the game against the Barbarians side next weekend and the White era will be over, at least as far as the Springboks go.

I am looking forward to reading his autobiography In Black and White (clever title that), which apparently gives the lowdown on the politicking behind the scenes by the likes of Luke Watson’s father Cheeky. The book was sold out when we went shopping yesterday and I have heard that more copies have been bought here than the latest Harry Potter instalment, which is no mean feat.

Should be a fascinating read.

Wales knocked out

Perhaps not unexpectedly Fiji beat Wales earlier today 38-34 in the Rugby World Cup, setting up a 1/4 final clash with the Boks. I’m not sure if this is good news or not. South Africa needs to be clinical and take out Fiji up front. If on the other hand they play like they did against Tonga, they may run into problems.
