Andre Joubert's 2 great tries in the 1996 Currie Cup Final - Worth a watch

Post by S » Wed, 17 Mar 2010 15:13:16


Well all know that Andre Joubert was a pretty special No 15.

To the chaps from Natal "Royce" was even more special.
In 1996 the Natal Sharks played Transvaal at Ellis Part before a
capacity crowd that included me.
What a day! Tons of beer and I maintain I remained sober.

Here is a iffy quality video I ripped from a VHS tape I found in the
rafters of my garage.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUmkszso4Pw

Jeremy Thompson scored the 1st try and Andre scored 2 more.

Joubert's 1st try was the special one to me. His 2nd try was lovely to
watch but Natal had the game almost in the bag by then.

Why am I posting this now? Well the Sharks supporters are all in pain
now. We are having an awful season (3rd from the bottom). Maybe this
will give them a boost

I can't watch it at work, but if I did it will probably just remind me
of a time when Natal had some real natural talents rather than the
robots we seem to have now.

I think that's a whole other debate, and a problem England have had for
years. Youngsters break onto the scene with oodles of talent. We stick them
in a gym then over coach them until all their natural skill has gone. South
African and English sides have of late gone for specimens over players. It
seems these days it's all about how much lead you can shift or how fast you
can run in a straight line.

Agreed.

Watch it at home Mark.

Look at the way Honiball runs his lines and sucks in the defence.
Then look at the way Joubert reads the game and hits the gaps at
speed.
Some people have argued that with modern defenses players like Joubert
would find it difficult.
I say that Joubert would could find a way through  any defense.

At the time both Honiball and Joubert were close to the best in the
world.
The fact they could turn it on like this in a Currie Cup Final is
testament ot their greatness
I don't believe the Sharks or the Boks have seen such talent since
then.

The pace of the guy on the first try was incredible, lovely try. Decent
quality rip as well Dave. Do you have any Province CC wins on video or do
you have to go back to Super 8 :o)

I agree with the sentiment. Today's sportsman is expected to be a
tee-total, PC, gym junkie, which reminds me of one of my favourite
stories... from cricket, but the point is moot.

In the 70s, Australia was desperate for a leg-spinner to tour the West
Indies, and chose a Novocastrian (from Newcastle on Hunter) after only
one Sheffield Shield (interstate) game. After one of the prep games, leg
spinner John Watkins began to jog around the oval, watched by Doug
Walters (talented Rothman's smoking batsman). After a few laps, Dougie
asked him what he was doing.

"Well", said John, "I want to be fit enough so my second twenty overs
are as good as my first twenty."

"Well", said Doug, "first of all, you need to be good enough to bowl
twenty overs."

I have the 1995 Currie Cup Final on video. You know the one where
Natal beat WePee
The 2000 and 2001 videos got taped over (wonder why?)

I remember the 1992 final that was also a cracking game edge of your seat
stuff or as Alex Ferguson says. "Squeaky bum time". I even spilt my beer a
couple of times. If you could put that one on DVD I would happily pay for
it. 1990 was not the greatest game but finally winning and beating the blue
bulls was great. The big pity was the sour grapes from that little ***
Naas. Remember his words. "Yes it's a fairy tale and it will take Natal
another 100 yrs to win it again." Don't hate many people but I loathe and
detest him and his team to this day.

Hector

Hector - happy to send them to you in mp4 form. Means you can play it
through Quicktime.
I have not converted all the finals yet to digital but I am pretty
sure that 90, 92, 96 are all done

My Apple Mini is connected to my Plasma so I can drive all my content
seamlessly through front row

I just need your postal address. Drop me an email with your address
and I will send it to you in the next couple of weeks
It takes up quite a lot of Gigs hence uploading is not an option. This
is because we have ripped it from VHS

BTW - I was at the 90, 92, 95, 96 finals.

Cheers
Dave

No. I emailed him and told him you own a fighter plane. Good as new,
only missing the fuselage cover. Hence the lack of hair. 20g turns while
taking out mg is sure to *** with the roots...
