A sad day for the Springboks
With the Rugby World Cup in full swing, South Africa has been fully engulfed in rugby mania, which came to a head in a 7am (!!) quarterfinal game against Australia this morning. Unfortunately the defending champions weren't able to pull off a win, largely due (as I'm told) to some questionable calls by the ref. I won't dare try to explain the details of the game (rugby is not my specialty), however it was certainly exciting.
Needless to say, moods are bleak in Joburg this morning.
