Div will apply for Bok job
Peter de Villiers says he will definitely apply for the Springbok coaching job should applications be asked for after his current tenure comes to an end next month. There has been some confusion since the Boks were knocked out of the recent World Cup in New Zealand at the quarterfinal stage by Australia as to whether De Villiers, the incumbent national coach, would seek a second term after media confusion over statements he made at two separate press conferences after that 14-9 defeat. At the post-match press conference he said that he knew it was the end of the road for him and he knew when it was time to go, which was widely interpreted as being a resignation. However 30 hours later, after the Bok squad had touched down at Oliver Tambo International Airport, De Villiers said he had not resigned. But after four years of growing into the job, De Villiers believes he has the credentials to continue if the South African Rugby Union want him to, and the manner of the Bok exit from the World Cup has made him keen to do so.
All I can think is:
1. Is he really that delusional?
2. Does he really believe he is good enough, or does he just realise the "realities of SA life" is in his favour, and playing his part?
3. Is he really that delusional??
4. Is SA Rugby really that hell bent on hobbling the Boks that they will resign him??
Warburton admits ref right to red card him
Wales international Sam Warburton admitted on Thursday that Irish referee Alain Rolland had made the right call by giving him a red card during the World Cup semifinal against France last month.
Well, what else can he say really? The way things stand now with the IRB, he he says anything other than that he will be fined and his suspension may be lengthened. It's laughable that these guys are treated like kids and only allowed to spew the IRB "party line".
