Cape Town Tens

First things first, as a lady I don't understand rugby very well. I know that the ball goes through the poles and you can only throw backwards and that is the extent of it. However, I am all for learning and what better way than at the world's biggest Tens' tournament.

Competition and collaboration go hand in hand with business discovery

It is simply human nature to want to explore every stat and detail around one of the world's biggest sporting events. Sports are globally loved and followed. In the words of Julius Caesar: "Panem et circensus" - literally translated "bread and circuses" are all that is required to keep a population peaceful.

Sound governance, an ideal ground for sports sponsorship

The South African government has made it clear that it expects public entities to be run in line with strict corporate governance principles. Since Fikile Mbalula took over as Minister of Sports, he has been emphasising the need for sports organisations to familiarise themselves with the cornerstone of sound corporate governance.

Cricket SA needs an ethical makeover

Cricket, as the supposed "game of gentlemen", has revealed anything but gentlemanly behaviour. The incidences of unethical behaviour stretch from Hansie Cronje to jailed Pakistani cricketers, to the current Cricket South African (CSA) bonus scandal.

What a final!
What a final!

I have said this a couple of times, but I am going to say it again. A week in rugby is a long time! I did predict a week ago that the All Blacks would be crowned world champions, but that is just about the only thing I predicted correctly. I really felt that it would be a one-sided final and that the All Blacks would win comfortably by no less than 14 points.

New Zealand to be crowned World Champions!
New Zealand to be crowned World Champions!

Yes, you did read correctly! I am a week early, but I am 100 percent sure that the All Blacks will win the World Cup for the first time since 1987 when they also played the French on home soil. The French were extremely lucky to get past a 14-man Welsh team who really played their hearts out. The Dragons were dealt a very cruel blow when their captain, Sam Warburton, was shown a red card in the 10th minute of the game.

Bok massacre
Bok massacre

Sometimes you need to get through tough times to gain confidence and win tournaments. I think back to the Wales game, which was the first game for the Boks, and I can't help but think that was a very important moment for the Springboks. They came through that game and this weekend they absolutely destroyed a very brave Namibian team.

Brilliant Boks!
Brilliant Boks!

The World Cup is always a great occasion and never seizes to amaze all rugby supporters around the world. The first two rounds were somewhat predictable with the giants of world rugby lined up against the tier-two nations, like Georgia, Namibia and Japan. Even though these teams did very well against their far superior opposition, the outcomes were somewhat predictable.

Year of the minnows!
Year of the minnows!

The first round of World Cup games is now over and what an exciting round of rugby it was. There was probably only one runaway game and that was the opening game between host country New Zealand and Tonga, and that scoreline was flattering to the All Blacks. The rest of the games were all really tight affairs and the so-called minnows all ran their more favoured opponents close. The two outstanding performers for me were Romania and Japan.

What a send off!
What a send off!

I was in Livingstone on Thursday and switched on the TV for the official send off for the Springboks. I have to admit that I got goosebumps when I saw how many people had turned out to show their support for the Boks. I have always been proud to be South African, but that amount of support really took my patriotism to another level. I tried to remember what our farewell was like in 2003 and my memories were very vague. This confirms my suspicion that it was nothing like what we saw last Thursday in Sandton.

It's hard to believe that it is four years since we won our second World Cup in France. So much has happened since then and rugby has changed dramatically. This fact was evident on Saturday when the All Blacks played the last game of the Tri-Nations. This also happened to be the first game in which you can really say that both sides were at full strength. What a phenomenal game it turned out to be and it was a sign of the quality of rugby we can expect at the World Cup in two weeks time.

Bok Backlash!
Bok Backlash!

This weekend was another sad day for Springbok Rugby as the Boks took another hiding, this time at the hands of the All Blacks. We Springbok supporters always believe that there is an outside chance, even when the writing is on the wall. What I wanted this weekend was a better performance from the young Springboks and a closer score.

I had the privilege of playing in the inaugural Investec jag Invitational Golf Day at Legend Golf Course this past weekend. It really is an amazing place with a beautiful golf course. The extreme 19th hole is on top of a mountain and only accessible by helicopter. What an incredible par three. It is 400 metres long and 400 metres below the mountain. The green is in the shape of Africa and very hard to hit.

Currie Cup rugby

It is hard to believe that we are already half way through July. July is hunting time, winter time, and also Currie Cup time. The Currie Cup is still an incredibly competitive competition and one that most South African players would love to win. Having said that the Currie Cup of 2011 will be a bit watered down as a result of the World Cup later in the year. This will mean that all the unions will play without their Springboks and that will level the playing fields
