Going for posts

The once mighty Eastern Province rugby side have been bottom feeders in provincial rugby for the last decade or so and has been struggling both on and off the field. This season has seen a bit of a revival in the boardroom which is slowly starting to spill onto the field. EP is currently lying 4th on the table in the Currie Cup "B" section. They played the 3rd placed South Western District Eagles on the Eastern Province Rugby Stadium this afternoon and lost a close game 15 points to 6. And believe me, SWD didn't win it, EP lost it. It could easily have gone the other way. Here the flyhalf is kicking for goal from a penalty.


  1. Well, I don't understand much about rugby, but I certainly understand the obvious frustration with this team. How do you fell about Rugby in the Olympics now? South Africa should do well....

  2. I have only been to one rugby match but really enjoyed it. I wish there was more opportunity to see it here in Utah... maybe one day.
