KEO COLUMN

Coetzee’s Boks worst ever

Logic suggests that the pain of 2016 ended for Springbok supporters when the final whistle sounded on statistically the worst year of Bok rugby, writes MARK KEOHANE.


Appointing Coetzee a mistake

South Africa’s rugby bosses need to admit they got it wrong in appointing Allister Coetzee and they need to advertise the position of Bok coach, writes MARK KEOHANE.


Bumbling Boks to stumble again

The Springboks will lose to England. It won’t be the humiliation of the Durban debacle against the All Blacks but it will be as emphatic, writes MARK KEOHANE.


England expects

The Springboks have been warned that one of the most astute coaches in the game is plotting their downfall, writes MARK KEOHANE.


Boks are in denial

The habit of making excuses for Springbok losses needs to stop, writes MARK KEOHANE.


Why is Bok sponsor so silent?

Brett Levy, Blue Label Telecoms’ joint CEO, must curse the day he described the experience of joining with Springbok rugby as one of reinvention and renewal, writes MARK KEOHANE.


Best man should lead Boks

The Springbok captain, post-Adriaan Strauss, must be a first-choice player whose selection is never disputed, writes MARK KEOHANE.


Stop making excuses

Stop excusing Allister Coetzee’s obvious limitations on his late appointment as Bok coach. Stop excusing every Springbok defeat on referees, weather conditions or the age-old South African retreat that the rugby gods have an issue with the Springboks, writes MARK KEOHANE.


Steyn rescued Boks

Morné Steyn did the job required for a momentary Springboks escape from a 2016 horror season more infamous than famous, writes MARK KEOHANE.


Boks simply have to win

The Springboks are in a rut at the moment but history favours them to beat the Wallabies at Loftus, writes MARK KEOHANE.


White can make Boks winners again

Appointing Jake White in a mentorship capacity is the only way to save the struggling Springboks, writes MARK KEOHANE in Business Day.


Fans deserve better from Boks

Despite the best possible start, the Boks simply weren’t good enough to put away Australia, writes MARK KEOHANE in Business Day.


Under-fire Boks to beat Wallabies

SA Rugby Magazine’s betting guru, MoneyManSA, has advised punters to stay away from the Rugby Championship showdown of the Springboks versus the Wallabies.


No quick fix for SA rugby’s slide

South African rugby is at its lowest point in the professional era, writes MARK KEOHANE in Business Day.


Mediocre Boks fail to inspire

The Springboks are rich in enthusiasm but poor in form, writes MARK KEOHANE in Business Day.
