Players called up for Bok assessments

A group of 12 Springboks have been invited to a four-day training, assessment and conditioning camp, from October 23-26 in Cape Town.  Current Springbok squad members who are playing for their provinces in the Currie Cup playoffs, as well as those who are playing for clubs in England and Japan, were not considered for the camp.

The purpose of the camp is to give Springbok management first-hand opportunity to assess the medical, conditioning and fitness status of the selected group as the Springboks step up their preparations for the end-of-year-tour.

South Africa’s opponents during their month-long European tour are Ireland (November 11, Dublin), France (November 18, [...]

Proteas smash Bangladeshis in most one-sided ODI in history

Quinton de Kock and Hashim Amla won the most one-sided match in limited overs history for South Africa in Kimberley on Sunday. In the process‚ they crushed any hope Bangladesh had of celebrating Mushfiqur Rahim’s historic hundred with a win.

Mushfiqur’s unbeaten 110 was the first century scored by a Bangladeshi in any of the 34 matches they have played against South Africa‚ regardless of the format‚ and their total of 278/7 was their highest in an ODI versus the South Africans.

But risibly harmless bowling saw South Africa chase down the target with 7.1 overs remaining and all 10 wickets standing.

The 282 runs De Kock and Amla shared represents a world-record [...]

Khune’s distribution best in the world‚ says Bafana coach

If Itumeleng Khune is not the best distributing goalkeeper in the world‚ then he is at least the best Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter has seen.

Never mind the ability to control his area better than any other goalkeeper in South Africa‚ as displayed again as Khune made a telling return from injury in Bafana’s 3-1 World Cup qualifying victory against Burkina Faso at FNB Stadium on Saturday.

And never mind that he makes better saves too.

Khune’s distribution‚ landing balls on Andile Jali and Percy Tau on Saturday that set up Bafana’s second and third goals‚ is perhaps the best in the world for keeper‚ Baxter said.

“I’ve coached a lot of goalkeepers all [...]

Tau pleased with crucial Bafana Bafana victory

Bafana Bafana forward Percy Tau admits the 3-1 victory over Burkina Faso in front of a subdued FNB Stadium crowd on Saturday was a perfect performance.

With an attendance of just over 10 000 in the 95 000-seater capacity venue, South Africa raced into a three-goal lead before the break in the vital World Cup qualifier.

Mamelodi Sundowns trio Tau, Sibusiso Vilakazi and Themba Zwane all etched their names on the score sheet in a clinical counter-attacking display, and despite Bongani Zungu’s red card early in the second-half, Alain Traore’s late goal proved to be nothing more than a consolation.

“I think we did very well. I think we should be [...]
