Too Old Hat


If your name’s Eddie Jones you’re probably 
still indulging in incredibly sweet reveries & 
in the nicest possible way - on t’other hand 
if it’s Heyneke Meyer, even apologies to th’ 
South African people won’t be standing ‘im 
in their good books - that’s unless the Boks 
go on and win the 2015 Rugby World Cup, 
which you’d have to think is unlikely now

So the Japanese have made a rugby claim 
to credibility with a well played win over th’ 
Springboks, a team populated with the like 
of du Plessis, Habana, de Villiers, Matfield 
and Burger - who’ve been there, done that 
too much perhaps, maybe are too old hat
