Eating humble pie

In South Africa we are a brutal bunch. Baying for blood at the first sign of weakness.

Last year this couldn’t have been more evident when the flyhalf debate raged last year. We all had our arguments as to why our favorites were to be given the starting ten berth, I myself was clamoring for Elton to be given his shot so he could show the world he was the chosen one.

All were in a agreement that Morne Steyn was one dimensional, a has been or even a never was. We wanted him dropped, exiled or drawn and quartered depending on what province you were from. He finally got a break during at the end of the year and at the end of the Rugby Championship.

This year he has quietly gone about his business. Again the top points scorer in the Super Fifteen. And as pretenders to his crown get injured or take a dip in form he is making me eat humble pie.

He has shown that firstly we play our stars into the ground and when they stop being super human out of utter exhaustion we discard them for the next big thing.

With the current crop of flyhalfs let’s hope the Morne forgives us and wins us the Rugby Championship this year.
