Wouldn’t object to Emirates Airlines coming on board as one of our sponsors either

Good luck for the new season Baylion, will be watching results with great interest. Hope you go well despite losing father and son Ackerman to Glaws. Great to see Ruan receiving Aviva Premiership Player of the month for November, most deserved - he described it as an award for the team - so modest.


Might be just me, but, I particularly enjoyed when Ruan left the field last week he wandered around and shook hands with all the subs and replaced players. No laddish high fives, back slaps etc just a professional ‘job done’, respect, hand shake. I liked that.

Their top price membership is around £140 at current exchange rates. Pretty good value for money but probably reflects the reality of the South African economy as to what the market can bear. Like the jerseys!

It certainly is Porky.

Unless I misread the website I think it may also include other benefits and a shirt ? :shock: . I may be wrong of course.

If you are reading this Club Admin- please note ! :D

Nice Kit!

Also you probably wouldn't need a personal loan to buy it. Xblades is way to expensive!!!

On the "eats shoots and leaves" principle, does that mean you think the shirt has something to do with their economy or you just like the shirt. :D :D I think we should be told.

My wife, daughter (who was 10 months at the time) and I went to Cape Town in 2009. One of the things that struck me was the great value of food. We had a Michelin Star restaurant on site at the hotel, which worked out at less than £40 for a 3 course meal for the 2 (sort of 3) of us, including beers and wine. It was unbelievable food too, some of the best we've eaten. We would go back to Cape Town in a heart beat; it's a fantastic city.

Tumpy tours will be going to Cape Town and some of the garden route in March. I intend to have a look at the SA rugby centre, has anyone been there at all?
Any hints for things to do in that area. Baylion? I’m there for 8 nights. Any tips will be appreciated
