After this weekend I have to pose the question. In my total unbiased (NOT!) opinion, I don’t think Freestate can stop them. I must say that Rassie is a class act and if anyone has to beat the Bulls he’d probably be my 1st choice. One tends to forget that he was in the all-conquering side of ’98.

I was pissed off at Bakkies Botha though. He always seems to be prodding and teasing the opposition. This reminds of the dark days. Heyneke should address this issue ASAP. It is something that White Jake should also keep an eye on.

I can’t wait for the Super12 next year. I know these are huge words, but with Heyneke at the helm I really think we can win it. He is such an astute tactician and we do have the players. Right now the only real weaknesses that we have are the wings. I wish we could get our hands on Ashwin!
