    Hello people,

    I found this forum last weekend when I was searching for a place to discuss rugby, a great sport. I'm from Holland myself and the level overhere in Rugby is terrible. I support the Springboks from South Africa. I lived there and it is shocking to see so many people actually disliking or even hating the Springboks.

    When it comes to club-rugby my favourite team is the Super14 participant Natal Sharks from Durban. The final in 2007 was a big shocking loss against the Blue Bulls but the play of especially Francois Steyn, Ryan Kankowski and Ruan Pienaar is the reason I became a fan of them.

    Well, That's about it for now. I hope I will have a great time here.

    I really don't know anything about Dutch rugby. I am a big fan and follower of the Super 14, Tri-Nations and Currie Cup. In 2011 I want to try and follow the Six-Nations as well. It's not easy since nothing is broadcasted overhere in Holland and I am completely depending on streams

    Cheers buddy, I lived in Amsterdam this year until May and before that I used to live in NZ so when it comes to S14 and Tri Nations I'm not the biggest Bok supporter but I due like their game.
    Hopefully you have a great time here.

    Good to see a fellow-Sharks fan. Thanks for all the nice messages and I hope you guys will guide me through the first few days. Next week saturday it is all starting!!! Currie Cup, Tri-Nations... I cannot wait man.

    It's a shame Francois Steyn left the Sharks but luckily he's playing in Paris now so I might be able to go and see him play for his new club.

    Hi Ezequiel

    Rugby fans don't hate each other, we only have passionate discussions. We are not like those disgusting footballers. ;)

    ...
    At most you'll see people say things like "i hope the boks lose" or "i hope England get stuffed"

    You just took it a tad too far.

    I have to admit that I feel very comfortable on this forum. It's nice to finally talk to some fellow-rugby fans. Or even better: Sharks fans!
