The Stormers are going to get thumped in round four of the Super 14. It is in the bones.
Enough of the insults about a two from seven return. Couldn’t find a Muppit after the bones’s second round fullhouse of seven from seven.
But like the guy who does the pig inbetween building the whole town … you do one pig and that’s all you are remembered for.
Fortunately, unlike the guy with the pig, the bones get to roll every week, get to boast and also get to be crushed on alternative weeks.
The bones, rarely wrong, haven’t got a history of imploding on two successive weekends, and the draw makes it easier to roll the good ones, especially in Pretoria where the bully boys will punish the Slaapstad’s Mountain Goats. It’s going to be a 10-plus dominance, and deservedly so.
