My Son Might one day play against the Boks!

How would you feel If your Son probably born outside South Africa end up playing against your national team, the Boks. Its a question I've been asking meself a lot lately. It'll be interesting to hear what some people under similar situation have to say.

My guess is ntanga, that any parent who had a kid playing sport for an international team would be ecstatic, regardless of which country is involved. Good luck to your son.

I'd be cheering for him to score a hat trick but the Boks to win !

Ntanga the whole question revolves around whh side h ewould paly for. Imagine however if it was for the wee abs. Oh the shame of that, how could one bear up under such a load.

Hoping it doesnt come to that! Where are you stationed?

Well, I'm based I Ireland lads, and I know the lad is still young, but he's been ear-marked already to be a quality rugby player if he decide to take that road for his career.

I spoke to one some SA friend who's in the same situation. He told me that if his son( the same age as mine) end up playing for Ireland, he'll support him alone, but not the whole Irish team. Man, I'll never support any team other than the Boks

Ntanga, the boks will always be your team. but remember. your son will have friends that play with him. You will know their parents and whish for them to succeed as well. It's fine boet. As long as the kieds enjoy it, and become the best they can be. off course you will always be ina position to have a little banter with him and his mates :)

 Well Ntanga, you have nothing to worry about my bru. Ireland ain't gona beat the Boks ever again so you can support your son in the comfort that they never had a chance anyway..Win/win for you ;-)

 

Whats his name? Will keep a look out for him in years to come!
