    Thursday Jun 16 | News24

    The Border Bulldogs were completely outplayed 38-17 by a rampant Boland Cavaliers side at a cool, windy Buffalo City Stadium in East London on Thursday in a Currie Cup qualifier encounter that failed to live up to its promise. The first half, with Boland playing into a strong wind, was error-strewn, with both sides missing elementary passes, with a number of knock-ons, and even the referee made an error when he failed to pick up a forward pass by Boland which almost led to a try.

    Cape Town It may sound cruel and perhaps over-hasty to suggest it, but I would argue that time is already running a little short for Adriaan Strauss to cement his Springbok captaincy. Heaven forbid, if South Africa 1-0 down in the three-Test affair after the Newlands debacle -- lose the home series to under-strength Ireland, or even limp unconvincingly over the line for a narrow triumph, the skipper will surrender plenty of the public favour that deservedly greeted his appointment by Allister Coetzee recently.
