17 antwoorde op Rugby players at the WC, born in other countries

  1. Kosmopolities, seg ik tegen jouw.

  2. avega het gesê op September 20, 2011

    Dis weird, wat’s die nut van 12 uitlanders in een span?

  3. Thanks, very good statistics. We export, but don’t import.

  4. TS het gesê op September 20, 2011

    Dis interessant Dit gaan seker maar oor geld? Ek is verras oor Frankryk as mens dink hoeveel buitelanders vir hulle klubspanne speel?

  5. Baie interessant. Waar is die Ndungane tweeling gebore? Ek het gedink hulle is ook Zimbabwiers. Klaarblyklik nie.

  6. Weetnie, sal bietjie delf…

  7. Ek stem saam…

  8. Ook bekend as geroesemoes dalk?

  9. Now who would want to be imported into a society such as ours, driven by racism?

  10. Geld is die ding wat alles verander het en nie ten goede nie as jy my vra.

  11. thats the ‘game’

  12. Yes!

  13. Even South African Squad is represented by foreigners, all afrikaners in the squad are foreigners, they are all dutch, incuding yourself.

  14. Please, do not show your racism and ignorance here. I am a Boer, born and bred in Africa and forsure not anywhere else. You lot are also colonizers, as basicly you and the whites came to this end of Africa at about the same time. History makes you and your ilk look like idiots.

  15. Seems like it.

  16. So if a cow gives birth to its young whilst drinking water in a river, we will now assume that its young is a fish?

    You are a settler period.

  17. Geez, but you are one stupid individual. Clearly you have no intellect to debate reasonably. I am sure my 16 year old daughter will nail you in open debate.

    Blacks are settlers as well in that case, as they arrived from middleAfrica and took land from the bushmen..history is against you and makes you look even more idiotic, if that is at all possible.
