A SOUTH AFRICAN DREAM
Derrick Hougaard goes into the South African changing room to find all his team mates looking a bit glum. "What's up?" he asks. "Well, we're having trouble getting motivated for this game. We know it's important but we've just beaten the Georgia and Samoa in consecutive weeks and let's be honest, it's only England. They're useless and we can't be bothered".
Derrick looks at them and says "Well, the way I've been playing recently, I reckon I can beat these guys by myself, you lads go down the pub." So Derrick goes out to play England by himself and the rest of the SA team go off for a few jars. After a few pints they wonder how the game is going, so they get the landlord to put the telly on.
A big cheer goes up as the screen reads "England 0 - South Africa 7 (Hougaard - 10 minutes - Converted Try)".
He is beating the Poms all by himself! Anyway, the telly goes off and a few more pints later the game is forgotten until someone remembers "It must be full time now, let's see how Derrick got on". They put the telly back on.
"Result from the Stadium: England 7 (Wilkinson 79 minutes) - South Africa 7 (Hougaard 10 minutes)". They can't believe it, Derrick has single handedly got a draw against England and maintained SA's unbeaten run. They rush back to the Stadium to congratulate him. They find him in the dressing room, still in his gear, with his head in his hands. He refuses to look at them. "I've let you down, I've let you down." says Derrick.
"Don't be daft, you got a draw against England, all by yourself. And they only scored at the very very end!" says the rest of the team. "No, No," says Derrick, "I've let you down... I got sent off after 12 minutes".
Dis is 'n ou Joke- maar ek is nie die ou wat dit buite konteks op my site het nie.
Die punt is juis....
