Rugby may well be the game played in heaven, but if we're not careful, it will be the ONLY place it is played!

We've been talking to some of the Australian Super 14 franchises, most notably the Reds and the Waratahs, about how the South African community in Australia can help ensure rugby survives. The way I see it, if the Australian franchises fail due to lack of support from fans then we may as well switch to watching rugby league, or just stick to watching the limited Currie Cup games to which we get access.

It's amazing how things can happen in your own back yard, without you being aware of it. While it is no secret that I am a huge rugby fan, I have never paid much attention to the local club rugby scene. My rugby interest has pretty much revolved around the Super 14 and Tri-Nations tournaments, so it came as a huge surprise when I received a call from Lance Blackbeard, chairman of the Helensvale Rugby Club on the Gold Coast.

Wow, how fast did 2009 fly by? I'm not sure if it could be considered a full year! We should be in 2009 and a half, not 2010.

I heard an interesting theory once. Actually it came from Shane Leite's dad, Bill. He suggests that every year feels shorter because it actually IS shorter when compared to the rest of your life.

I recently saw a news article about Glenn Wheatley. You may recall he was John Farnham's manager, and went to jail for tax fraud back in 2007.

I was surprised that he was sent away for what, in the scheme of things, was not a lot of money. Tax evasion is tax evasion though, and without knowing all the background information, I did wonder what his relationship with his accountant was like – both before the indictment, and after.

Bianca and I went out to dinner at Wellington Point's Legends Restaurant, which was having an African Feast evening where R200 gets you as much food as you want. The menu included oxtail, paella, chicken a la king, babotie, wors, pap and sous. Just when my belly button was about to pop off and my stomach burst open and scatter seven metres of intestines everywhere, they brought out the deserts, which included koeksusters, peppermint crisp pudding and melk tert. When we could take more we paid and rolled home.
