Man!!!! what a attitude

I will never be able to understand some journalists and peoples' attitude towards our sports. Why should we avoid England. They should be avoiding us. Why wait till the finals for instance to play against them? Why not just beat them in the semis and show them just how good we really are?

To be the best, you need to beat the rest!!!!!!!!!!!


SA need full house to avoid England

The sevens Boks will have to win all three of their matches at Outeniqua Park on Friday if they don't want to make things difficult for themselves in the SA leg of the International Rugby Board's Sevens tournament in George.

Jaco Pretorius's team will play Tunisia, Zimbabwe and France on Friday.

If they win their group, they will play the team ending second in Group C on Saturday. It will probably be Samoa, with England expected to top this group.

Samoa are a difficult team to beat, but England have shown that they are one of the best sevens teams in the world. If the Boks end second in their group, they will in all likelihood face England.

"We've studied videos of the Tunisians and we've got a plan in place to beat them" says SA coach Paul Treu.
"They lie quite shallow and play a physical game. We will try to limit rucks and play the ball wide."
The Zimbabweans are an unknown factor, because they did not play in Dubai.

They are known to fight to the bitter end, but Pretorius and company should beat them without too much of a struggle.

France, however, are a different kettle of fish.

"The French are excellent at kick-off and they test a team's defence all the time," Treu said.
He will start the first match with his more experienced players and give the less experienced guys a chance later on.

"I'm considering including the only newcomer, Izak Saayman, in the second match against Zimbabwe," the coach explained.

He was pleased that he could include Sevens star Fabian Juries again.
Juries withdrew from the Dubai tournament to be at his wife's side for the birth of their child.
Treu said Juries was one of the most experienced Sevens players and he was the pivot of South Africa's game plan.

Donner is 'n draak!  
Anyway, back to the article, I don't think it has anything to do with attitude. The way I see it, it's better to take the easy road to the final, ie play Samoa. It's not an easy game, but (looks around to see if St Michel is listening in) England has a good sevens team at the moment. So it will be better for us to play Samoa and rather face England at a later stage.

I put the picture on my cool Sony USB and it compresed it with virtual expander, which I have at home, but not at the office. If you can read a .vem file I'll send it on to you...


But agreed


This is a crap attitude and the reason why we're struggling. The Poms should be the ones kakking themselves at the prospect of facing us!!!!!!

Anyway, last night I saw an interview with Paul Treu. He looks about 19, but the point is I don't know how journalists change things because last night he was telling SABC that he viewed SAMOA as the biggest threat???!!!

Send it, I'll get the software. Luckily the net is available for anyone to use. Just wait until 09:30. I need to go check if our mailserver will allow it. I blocked .zip files two weeks ago, and I think .vem files are also blocked. Just give me 10 minutes.

You can send. Have you got my email? I'll send you an email quickly, cos I think I saw your's in one of Donner's emails.
