SA Unions / Teams: Confident side ready to Spear the Cheetahs

THE Southern Spears will paint Port Elizabeth red this Saturday when they clash with the Free State Cheetahs for the franchise’s inaugural match at the EPRU Stadium.

Entrance is free to rugby fans who wear red.

Southern Spears chief executive Tony Mckeever said Saturday’s match would send a clear indication to sponsors that the team was here to stay.

More than 25 000 tickets, worth R65 each, have been snapped up in response to the franchise’s drive in newspapers and on the radio.

The EPRU stadium has a capacity of 30 000 seats and Mckeever is confident it will be “filled to capacity”.

“The team has been rated by the SA Rugby Performance Unit and players were evaluated and they are as fast, fit, strong and conditioned as other elite players around the country.”

And while the team was in “peak physical condition”, a full stadium would provide the “psychological motivation” that it needed to win. On the day of the match, VIP parking will be set aside for 1 000 red, black and white cars just outside the stadium grounds.

Prime parking will also be provided for the fire department’s red fire engines, while seating will be allocated for firefighters. The match kicks off at 3pm after a curtain-raising contest between the B teams of EP and Griquas at 10.45am.

Rugby greats were on hand yesterday when the Southern Spears were presented with their team colours.

Highlighting the importance of the milestone event, the Southern Spears jerseys were personalised for the event, and embroidered with the match details.

Captain Ashley Johnson said he was “confident” in his new team’s ability.

“I don’t think it’s going to prove too difficult for us. We’re not nervous at all.”

The game will be streamed live on the Internet. :)

Detail to log in will follow.

Dont plan anything else for Saturday afternoon.
 
Besides a couple of bottles of good old Cape Red, obviously.....  
I'm more worried about how the Cheetatjies are going to handle the flap jacks, syrup and bananas ... :)  
Kandas, when are we going to do that feature on the SpearLeaders???

I can see one a week throughout the S14!!!
 
I'll see what I can do Ras.  
Ja Kandas

You promised us a spearleader for Brannasnacht....


Hey


Maybe it was a Spearleader trying to chat you up on the tv characters Brannasnacht!!!!!


Did you get my mail?
 
Problem is, DavidS, I dont have much to do with the Spearleaders. Can do a lot for you with the new SWD Cheerleaders though. :)  
Well what are you waiting for then!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  
Hah!

Tony owes us!

We want a SpearLeader feature!

We'll supply the 20 questions, the Spears can supply a full length pic and the answers! ;-)
 
But we'll be more than happy with an SWD feature as well.....  
Davids,

I hope it was not a Spearleader trying to chat him up last Thursday. I will post the new theme for Brannasnacht tomorrow morning. Might even be more fun than last week.
 
Ras,

First question.

What was Kandas's reaction when he walked into the dressing room?

Answer: Huh, huh, huh atisjoe!!!
 
Ras

Give me the questions and I will get it to Tony and we'll alternate the features between SWD and the Spears.
 
Kandas, I hope the details of the live streaming will be placed here!!  
Ja, and NOT on the OTHER site first  
Sure Ras. Will do. Will hopefully have it tomorrow.

Take it out.

The holiday in Jhb or CT is a no brainer too.

Rather, instead of London / New York, ask Joburg or CT


Then on the holiday thing ask CT / Durban
 
Agreed DavidS. And thanks. That was very subtle from Ras.  
Okay, lose 12.
