Personally I think that Justin Cartwright has it all mixed up - poor man. Good comments - I appreciate it that it is mostly English speaking people commenting.

Oh... now I even more want the Bokke to win!!

They've since removed it from the homepage ( a proof that it may have been a stinker , or maybe it prompted too many comments ? );
if you go to "telegraph.co.uk" then "sport" , choose "World Cup "
there should still be heading "more than a game" , in blue ( taken from "opinions" section , previously ) ...
...almost as if Peter Hain wrote it , I thought - a guy can make a lot of political hay and capital in PC U.K. , by criticising white South Africans forever ...

I should be writing my assignment on Roman buildings but I popped in to read this article.

OH MY G.......

In our hearts we know that this article is written out of fear, fear of another drubbing. Wear the green and gold with pride. Our boys of ALL COLOURS do. no-one wants to be a token player - you want to get there under your own skill.

Why is nothing ever said about the cricket team or the soccer team? Because they, unfortunaltey, don't get the opportunity to play England in a World Cup final.

Everyone at work on Monday came up to me and said you better beat England. This article is trying to hide the fact that England are not liked. I think Mr Cartwright should read up on his history before putting down half baked ideas and fiction is the right word.

This article makes be proud to be South African and shamed of my English birth - bigoted Englishman that he is.
BOKKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Saturday's match has enormous importance for England, but only in the sense that it would be a miracle if a team that only a few weeks ago was so derided should come back from the dead to retain the World Cup. A victory won't have a major effect on national life after a few weeks.

But for South African rugby there is a complex mix of race, identity and history barely contained within the green jerseys.


These comments are obviously from a 'football supporting man', and as such have as much insight into the joy of winning the RWC on the first attempt.

He probably still refers to 1966 as the ultimate year in British history when England won the mother of all cups. Then again, we have since moved on - in those days we barely had TV. Nowadays we have TV umpires..

I just hope HM does not listen to No10 and give Ashton a knighthood. No matter the outcome.
