‘You never think about when it will end’
- 24 May 2013
In this interview with Total Rugby, former Springbok captain John Smit looks back on his rugby career, from his introduction to the game as an 11-year-old to his last match for Saracens.
Cheetahs failed as a unit
A lack of defensive intensity in the first 40 minutes cost the Cheetahs any chance of victory against a Reds team low on confidence after the hammering against the Waratahs, writes MARK KEOHANE.
Springbok scrumhalf Ruan Pienaar has been in excellent form for Ulster, writes PAUL MORGAN.
Matfield made his mark
The quality of the match was questionable but the one-sided nature of the Vodacom Bulls' win against the Lions at Loftus was never in doubt, writes MARK KEOHANE.
