Okay, let's pretend that Rassie is not just a sore-loser crybaby and he is in fact a courageous genius who has pulled some kind of master stroke on World Rugby and proved beyond doubt that all the refs are stupid, biased, ignorant cheats.

What now? What do we do to fix the problem?

Any ideas . . . or is all the bleating and whining just for the sake of it without an alternative in mind?

The question is would you select Pollard over Libbok for the game against Ireland next week?

If the answer is "yes" then it's a sensible enough decision.

If the answer is "no" then it's a very stupid call.

Manie Libbok is not a world class goal-kicker but he adds a lot of flair to the backline and the Boks are looking good playing expansive running rugby.

If it was me I'd have called up Dweba to be my bench hooker and I'd have stuck with Manie, flaky goal-kicking or not.

I don't believe Pollard's goal-kicking is so much better than Manie's that it warrants us playing a lightweight non-specialist hooker for 30 minutes in each game from here on in.

This is a self-respecting SA rugby forum so I guess it's pretty normal that after our much-needed, tense and gripping win against the plucky Scots it's full of opinionated windbags bitching about all the players they've historically hated, blubbering crybabies whining about the naughty referees and everyone grumbling about how dreadful the Springboks are.

We've just won a critical game for goodness sake! You should all be celebrating. I am!


My only negative gripe is our control-freak of a coach holding up stupid lights and trying to make all the on-field decisions. For the rest, I'm stoked. We took a long time to fire but we did and we put a good team away.

We're basically into the quarterfinals with that win and I think we can beat either the All Blacks or Frogs in the quarterfinal and go on to beat the other one in the final.

Manie will discover his kicking form if the "brains" trust with the silly lights stops ordering him to go for poles from miles out and shows a little faith instead of replacing him as kicker every time he misses one. We'll win this thing scoring tries if he doesn't.

"& we picked 4 number 9s"

There's some irony there. Like I said earlier, if we win this RWC it'll be despite Rassie, not because of him.

The initial selection of 4 scrumhalves, the decision to exclude Pollard from the original squad, the selection of Am to replace Mapimpi when we didn't use him even once, the 7-1 split for the final, the kick-and-hope game plan . . . all stupid shortsighted decisions made by an egotistical fool trying to prove he's some kind of genius.

Oh well . . . Go Bokke!

And shortly before the Aussies won the CWC, this classic:

With the world's biggest population and a national passion for the game, India have become too strong for everyone else.

I reckon if you split India into north, south, east and west and they played in a CWC they'd be the 4 semifinalists
