CAPE TOWN – This isn’t to be interpreted as a boast but as a celebration: Last weekend the rugby gods smiled on me and for the first time this season I hit the collective jackpot with each of my picks getting reward.
I was feeling flush and the R10 000 I bet won me back R19 000.
Super Rugby this season has been a punter’s minefield because of World Cup preparations and the rotation of so many of those players’ guaranteed World Cup places. Last week was the exception and so many matches screamed “pick me”.
I am pleased the Stormers finally came good on one of my calls. They’ve been my nemesis this season. Last weekend’s win against the Highlanders played out as I thought it would, which was very different to how the bookies saw this match.
I had the Stormers to win by double digits and they did.
