Its that time of year again.
The dread of the non-fans of rugby -
But a fest for the fans: wall to wall weekend matches.
As one of our locals was heard to say: "Kannie slaapie" (translation: "Can't sleep") -
Because there is just too much good sport to watch.
Judging by the starting games, the new rules have made a fantastic difference.
The game flows fast and furious, with few interruptions and scrums that set easily.
If I have to be partly immoblised (with the ankle thing), I sure have picked a great time to do it!
And let's not forget the cricket test against India . . .
PS: Confession: I am awfully grateful for PVR so I can still catch up on the odd reality show -
I am a balanced TV watcher.
