Was the Springbok – Ireland rugby match fixed?

November 30, 2009

Had Saturday’s Springbok rugby match against Ireland been a cricket match there would most certainly been allegations into match fixing.

Possibly one of the strongest facets of the Springbok rugby side is their line out’s. Watching replays you will see that they performed unusually poorly in this area. Why?

Not uncommon in Springbok rugby: there were some very bad referee calls which were notably uncharacteristic of an international rugby match. Why?

I have seen cricket match’s undergo match fixing allegations for less than what transpired on Saturday’s game.

Attached is a summary of the game from our friends at Springbok Rugby South Africa Blog

Builders warehouse yesterday

November 24, 2009

I was in Builders Warehouse the other day pushing my cart around when I collided with a young guy pushing his cart.

I said to the young guy, “Sorry about that. I’m looking for my wife and I guess I wasn’t paying attention to where I was going.”

The young guy says, “That’s OK. It’s a coincidence. I’m looking for my wife, too. I can’t find her and I’m getting a little desperate.”

I said, “Well, maybe we can help each other. What does your wife look like?”

The young guy says, “Well, she is 24 years old, tall, with blond hair, big blue eyes, long legs, big boobs, and she’s wearing tight white shorts, a halter top and no bra. What does your wife look like?”

I said, “Doesn’t matter — let’s look for yours.”

Most of us old guys are helpful like that.
