What this site....
September 19, 2013, 14:08:38

needs just to round things off is some NH posters. Recruiting won't be as easily achieved as it is with SAFFAS and Kiwis but I reckon come the year end tour I might once again try and invite the "view from the other side."

 

Whatchas say?

there was a "Pine in Ireland" but I think he is bidding his time until the next on-field contreversey and then he will come out and lambast the ABs and their fans! YES you know who you are (28posts)! lol!

I say yes Denny!  On abs.com we had kiwis of course, some Aussies, some saffas and a gentleman from France mr blue, a woman from Italy agnese, another woman from Japan miss Samarai edge and the occasional few that came in whenever the abs were playing their country.  So how will you go about recruiting?  Maybe you can get some tips from rooinek, he gave a wonderful scenario on another thread about starting a new AB forum lol

Cloudy...I've probably recruited (I prefer to say invited) half the Kiwis on this forum and a fair few SAFFAS as well so lets just say recruiting is hardly an issue. Thing is I've always believed a healthy forum must have an international flavour so as to get the true feeling of what the "other side" believes. No sense in just having SAFFAS only....too damn lopsided and boring in my opinion.

Cool Denny.....among those internationals please include some referees....their view from the other side will be most enlightening for us all:)

 Ok hakwa I admit you kiwis bring out the best in me. I only give out a odd post then and now, as I dont always have access to computer. But I do alot more reading of the forum than actual posts. Expecialy when I have to stick up for the boks.(29) Lol.

Denny. Yes I am a saffa living in Ireland.

@ Pine in IRE; There are a lot of SA Pine in Ireland, especially Wicklow.  Would you happen to be one those Pines planted in Wicklow or Dublin?

Wow a compliment from Saffex ;)

 

Yep, I'm English, for those of you who don't know me. Now you can throw the abuse !

 

But I can assure you Blob, Saffex will never support the English. He really still is South African through and through...as he should be :)

I have never heard him speak, so I don't know if he's English, Hakwa !!! :)

His name sounds Celtic to me !!!

 

He's very powerful though....too powerful, if you ask me. Had a lot of top business jobs before this one, so he knows his way around the boardroom.

We will have to wait and see what happens next.
