    I joined and also sent you an E-Mail.

    You’ll see me as grootblousmile on the list.

    I am an OLLLLLLDDD SuperBru player and have been Pool Captain in excess of 75 Competitions already… just over 4 500 Caps, I think… something like 106 Tournaments and over 410 Pools! Joined up to SuperBru in 2007 already and have earned 118 Certificates of performance already!

    I’m just now learning rugby, but I’ve been a Boks fan as far back as I can remember. My Aussie mate also likes the Boks. Maybe you good folks in the RSA can help my education. Cheers.

    Hi Anthony, not that complicated….all you have to do is to choose which team is going to win and by how many points…..a lot of times luck is coming into it because even if you know which team will win, the winning margin is difficult to predict…so that is why I said you need the Irish luck… πŸ™‚

  8. Mark F, Feetjie & fellow muppits,

    Feetjie, I feel your pick is not a bad one at all… female intuition at play… hahaha!

    Having looked at the Team Sheets, the B&I Lions Have put out a strong side and strong replacement bench, whereas the Lions from SA has a young and relatively inexperienced team… ended last of the SA Sides in the Rainbow Cup (SA Leg) and of course has some Springbok players out.

    The B& I Lions have also picked a very attacking Halfback pairing, so they will run all day and if the Lions from SA’s defence is not right in the faces of the B& I Lions, it could potentially be a loooong afternoon for those from SA.

    A lesser side is normally able to curb the stronger side in the 1st 20 minutes, whereafter the stronger side comes through and the lesser fades away after the 1st quarter…

    I suppose after this match only, will we see where the SA Provincial sides should stand against the B& I Lions for the next matches… so the 1st one is always a bit of a gamble.

    If you win the hamper though, YOU keep it, I am always glad to help you!

    Regards,

  9. Right, so the pickings looks good thus far with Scott, Mel and Feetjie all under the same tree. Remember you can see the other peoples picks if you lock your picks in Superbru, but then you will not be able to change them…….Let the best LL Family member win…..Good Luck

    Thanks, I will!

    Hahaha

  11. OK, so tonight it is the 2nd Match on Tour… if the British & Irish Lions do not withdraw due to the results of the Covid-19 tests they all had yesterday or today!!

    The match has been moved ONE HOUR LATER, to 20:00 SA Time.

    OK, so what is my analysis about the Cell C Sharks vs British & Irish Lions to be played on 7 July 2021 at 20:00 SA Time:

    FIRSTLY, let me say that I think the B & I Lions will win handsomely. Bookies predicting anywhere between 20 to 33 points win and I concur… maybe somewhere inbetween.

    SECONDLY, comparing the sides, it is clear the Lions will run HARD at the Sharks weak defensive link, Curwin Bosch at flyhalf… he is like a revolving door on defence.

    THIRDLY, comparing the Test-hardened Lions to the team fielded by the Cell C Sharks, one would have to give the Lions about 7 tries to 2 or possibly 3

    FOURTHLY, The Lions backline looks like the most potent one they have chosen so far in tour… Dan Biggar and Gareth Davies WILL run the game and keep the Lions with territorial advantage and they will organise the attack.

    FIFTHLY, The Sharks will give good initial defence, but as the game wears on it will appear that the Lions are getting better and better!

    Let’s see how my predictions go…
