An SA Perspective

Words from South Africa

SA Top’s Rugby and Cricket Rankings

The Protea’s joined the Springboks this week to become the number one ranked team in their respected sporting disciplines.

With England’s 2- 1 victory over Australia in the Ashes series that was concluded this past weekend the Protea’s, who already hold the title of top ranked ODI team, overtook the Aussies as the worlds top ranked Test team.

Springbok captain, John Smit, said that, “It was fantastic for South Africa to hold the top ranking in both cricket and rugby.

It is a reward for hard work that has been put in over the past 2 years. Many hours of effort go into preparing for international competition and achieving such an accolade makes it all worthwhile.” Graeme (Smith) and his team can be proud of this achievement,” said Smit.

Things might look up even more after this Saturday as the Springboks face Australia in Perth in contention for the Super 14 title.
