Loftus build up

I am really going to enjoy the match on Saturday, strange how all rugby playing nations all like to beat England .Having to watch South Africa’s over the past couple of years has been quite painful at times.

England has to put a brave face on and maybe they can put this bug behind them but with South Africa not playing as a team for six months and the SA public enjoying the Super 14 and build up to the world cup.I wonder what the score will be, I am hoping for a 50 point gap to the Springboks which would be awesome.

Team information:

P Montgomery (Sharks); A Ndungane (Bulls), W Olivier (Bulls), J de Villiers (Stormers), B Habana (Bulls); B James (Sharks), R Januarie (Lions); G Steenkamp (Bulls), J Smit (Sharks, capt), C J van der Linde (Cheetahs), B Botha (Bulls), V Matfield (Bulls), S Burger (Stormers), J Smith (Cheetahs), P Spies (Bulls).

Dude.... you gotta keep your blog going... I'm in the US and get all the little titbits from your blog... I dont have "Die Burger" or any SA local newspapers... I didn't even know Habana was injured until I saw the line up against Australia today...
