Ackers Steek Tong Uit, En Dit Is Om Van Te Huil

Sal dit nie ironies wees nie, en nog 'n klap in die Suid-Afrikaanse rugbybase se gesigte?

Dis nou as die Engelse rugbybase na die Werelldbekertoernooi van 2019 vir Johan Ackerman as afrigter oorweeg om die leisels by Eddie Jones as hoofafrigter oor te neem, en sommer ook sy seun Ruan Ackerman vir span te oorweeg.

Gloucester, wat in die 2016-17-seisoen negende uit twaalf spanne in die Engelse Premier-liga geeindig het, het Vrydagaand op Kingsholm vir Saracens, wat gelaai was met Engelse en Skotse toetspelers en oud-Springbokke, soos Schalk Brits, Schalk Burger en Vincent Koch, met 23-17 geklop nadat Ackerman sowat drie maande gelede as hoofafigter oorgeneem het.

En om die kroon te span, is Ruan Ackerman as speler van die wedstryd aangewys.

Dis nogal ironies dat daar geskarrel is om 'n plaasvervanger vir die beseerde agsteman, Warren Whiteley, in die Bokspan te vind dat Uzair Cassiem die ja-woord in die Rugbykampioenskap gekry het, maar Ruan Ackerman oor die hoof gesien is en toe saam met sy pa na Engeland oorgeskuif het.

Gloucester het na sy sege na die derde posisie op die puntelys opgeskuif het,voor swaargewigte soos Leicester. Bath en Harlequins.

Gloucester was rustyd met 3-9 agter nadat hulle Saracens se aanslae op hul doellyn moes afweer. Maar na rustyd het hulle tot die aanval oorgegaan, die vaste fasette oorheers en die spel gerek.

Dit was nie toestande wat hardlooprugby bevorder het nie, want dit was grys, koud en natterig. Maar hulle het dit reggekry want die spelers speel met selfvertroue, glo al meer in hulself en in die spelpatroon, want hul vaardighede verbeter en word weekliks opgeskerp.

Nou bly die groot vraag - Hoekom is Ackerman laat gaan?

Suid-Afrikaanse rugby pluk die wrange vrugte, want hulle moes hom reeds verlede jaar (nie met die afgewaterde A-span wat slegs een of twee wedstryde per jaar en 'n week se voorbereiding speel nie) beloon het.
