BONUS - RUSTENBURG - Ohisashiburi desu - tadaima.

Or, in English: Long time no see - I'm back. If there was any doubt that the current Springbok team is in another class than our previous emissaries to the World Cup, Friday's 41-7 victory over the host nation should lay that to rest.
But don't be fooled; the score is indeed impressive, yet the game wasn't. If it was not for the individual brilliance Makazole Mapimpi, the tale could've easily been one of woe. It would be very interesting now to see how Rassie make the most of both Mapimpi and that other superstar, S'bu Nkosi. In short, it was a good performance - not great, but satisfactory. A lot of preparation and honing of skills will be required before 21 September when the 'Boks run out against the All Blacks.
The Cheetahs were emphatic in their assault to make the Currie Cup orange again. Their 31-28 victory over the Golden Lions was thanks to dedication, passion and a never-say-die attitude. Tries from Joseph Dweba, William Small-Smith, Clayton Blommetjies and old Laerskool Rustenburg learner Walt Steenkamp. Another former Rustenburger, and also former Larries learner, Louis Fouché, was also instrumental in the Cheetah victory.
