Oh and it appears Ritchie McCaw is back to lead his side out... There's no doubt their haka which will be absolutely drowned out on Saturday 🙂Your Referee for Saturday: Nigel OwensThis is what Sport24 had to say about the assignment... seems promising 🙂
South Africa have no special reason to fear the Welshman’s influence with the whistle. Although he comes from the near-unpronounceable Welsh village of Mynyddcerrig, he speaks relatively plain English, which is a good start. The Boks have won six of their nine Tests he’s taken charge of, including two of three against the All Blacks, and there have been no infuriating SA grievances a la Bryce Lawrence, Paul Honiss or the aforementioned Monsieur Poite. Here’s praying that doesn’t change on Saturday.

Your Blogger-In-Chief, Proud Springbok and Sharks Supporter.. If I could sum myself up in one quote, I believe Steve Jobs said it best… “Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes, the ones who see things differently,they’re not fond of rules. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
