Southern Hemisphere Rugby Trounces North Yet Again - New York Times
Hell, I'm not even a rugby lover, but there is something in that indomitable spirit of the Springboks that makes my flag spring-up and wave-in-the-wind. And strues Bob I have a long sleave Bok jersey for winter and a short sleave for summer, which I wear sparingly, always careful of being stopped in the middle of town by hand pumping, back slapping ex-pat blokes who want to shoot the breeze about old days.
There is no place for mediocrity in the Springbok Team. And despite all the political to-ing and fro-ing over the last few years (too many years as Mr Markgraaf will recall) I can confidently assert that the Springboks are still the best Rugby team on the planet (albeit by the skin of their teeth in this first test - Springboks 26 - Lions 21)
So my congratulations to the Bokke once again. You kicked Lion ass in 2007 and now you did it again!
