Excellent! Even better will be to witness Foolyes Malema's spitting and foaming because there are so many whites at the airport to welcome the boys home!!!

Hmm, must be due to the quota system (not!) why soccer is doing so well...

No whiteys in the team to blame it on, so what would the excuse be I wonder?

@ anon 5:18, 'tis a mystery, hmm, what could be the common thread I wonder...?

Go Bokke you beauties! I think once this team retires we'll see a new "improved" black proteas team take over and then there goes rugby. I'll have to start supporting the Wally's when that happens...

So true anon 6:39, this may the last of the golden era. This coach is riding on the coat-tails of Jake White's efforts and I fear it will take many years to rebuild the squad. Still, unlike NZ who poach plenty from the neighbouring islands, our boys are fully home-grown and that should make us all extra proud.
