    Bulls have offered 12,000 seats at the stadium for the Crusaders match at R20 per seat (~USD1.4)

    It really says a lot about what the Super Rugby organisers have done to the tournament in the past ten years that we have reached this point. ~7,000 seats filled in a Bulls home game is insane. No other matches on, good weather and still that figure. Concerning and I don't know what their plan will be to actually get people back into the stadiums.

    Dude, it was the first weekend in May. That means hunting season is now open! Of course nobody would have been there, they all went to the bush to get some biltong!!

    Plus this 3 o'clock kick-off is ticking a lot of people off, most of the school sports are still busy at that time, and can't get to the stadium after the kids played.

    It's an industry all on it's own.

    Impala, Kudu, Eland, Gemsbok, Springbok, Giraffe, Bluewildebeest, Zebra, Buffalo, Nyala, Sable, etc.

    Basically any antelope. We have a lot of overseas hunters coming to SA to hunt. one of my close friends is a PH, and his farm is fully booked out for the next 4 years.

    Some steakhouses have it on the menu in Joburg and Cape Town. But it’s not that tasty.

    Springbok Carpaccio on the other hand is very tasty.

    That’s what the all blacks eat when they play South Africa. Very tasty indeed. Tastier than spaghetti wallabies

    You probably won't be buying biltong as a product on its own at a restaurant. Instead, you will buy it at biltong shops.

    Some restaurants will serve it on their food, however. There is this restaurant in the North of South Africa called Nguni grill who has this amazing Chicken schnitzel topped with cheese sauce, crushed biltong and Avo.

    Anyway my picks
    canes
    rebels
    crusaders
    jags
    sharks
    lions
    brumbies

    the team to fece high landers

    Emiliano Boffelli; Sebastián Cancelliere, Matías Moroni, Jerónimo de la Fuente; Ramiro Moyano; Joaquín Díaz Bonilla, Felipe Ezcurra, Javier Ortega Desio; Tomás Lezana, Juan Manuel Leguizamón, Lucas Paulos, Marcos Kremer; Enrique Pieretto; Julián Montoya y Mayco Vivas.
    its clearly a b team. quesada is letting this one go. maybe a good idea rest the boys. we would probly loose anyway and we could top the SA conference even loosing 2 games of this tour

    I think the Brumbies will make the playoffs. It's not too late for them to save the season. :cool:

    It's a sensible strategy

    Highlanders will be the best team Jagaures will play this season excluding playoffs

    1st game on tour allows 1st team players to adjust their body clocks accordingly

    Plus they have stacked the bench with star players like they did against Bulls

    Hurricanes have a soft pack excluding Fifita & A Savea so Jaguares have a chance to steal a win

    Aussies teams are largely rubbish & would expect Jaguares to beat both Waratahs and Reds

    Hence 2 wins out of 4 allows Jaguares to get to win 10 wins to win the conference and even obtain a #2 seed & potentially a home semi final

    i think your wrong tbh. Jagauares willand has played much better teams than the Higlander. Not saying they are bad just that they are not the best team.

    The only teams I would consider is the Hurricanes

    Let's ignore Stormers who are a mess

    Bulls can't beat Int'l sides unless the play rubbish Aussies teams

    Sharks have talent but have a clown for a head coach & I can't forget Jaguares putting 50+ points on them in Durban

    Jaguares were on a different level to the Sharks in their skill levels and ability overall

    Lions are a bit of a bogey side for the Jaguraes

    Caught them cold in Game 1 and were generous in letting Lions run rampant for 50 mins in Jo'burg and Jags playing like U16 Schoolboys team

    But Lions pack has been decimated and they''ve struggled vs other SA sides as a result

    are the landers going to field a b team too? think thats the aim by wining those 2 in aus and winning the rest (home games) we could top the conference or at least be 2cnd
    also its a chance to make these other boys play and improve, it going to be debut for lucas paulos.
