  1. McBrolloks, aren’t you a bit harsh on Smittie’s lack of declaring timeously to ensure a win? I mean, math has obviously never been his strong point, but should his coach not be held responsible. Has the latter ever told Smittie that a test only lasts for five days?


  2. Good point Savage. Maybe the poor guy is not to blame. The South African team has always had a bit of a problem when it came to doing any math. Look at their WC disasters under pressure as an example. Maybe we can all chip in and buy them a laptop. There must be someone under that bunch of geniuses who will know how to use it.
