RuggaMatrix International 040 – Good Service

RuggaMatrix spends a second straight week with the world champions as they prepare to finalise their Tri-Nations victory in season 2009.

Strong running centre Jaque Fourie is our special guest star as he warms up for his 50th Test.

South Africa needs only one bonus this weekend against Australia to claim the title but Fourie tells us that they want the win and are not settling for anything less. We cover a lot with Fourie, from the Lions franchise, his future, tactics and teammates.

Les Kiss is still unpacking his old rugby league gear in Ireland so we’ve giving him the week off again but he is brilliantly replaced by London Irish fullback Peter Hewat. Hewat is preparing for a big year with Irish as they are back in the Heineken Cup.

The Guinness Premiership and the Magners league are ready for kick-off and we quickly scan the competition ahead of us.

Ewen McKenzie is a busy head coach at the moment with a midweek game following Stade Francais’ big win at the weekend. We also get an emphatic denial that Lote Tuqiri is speaking or has spoken with the glamour Paris team.
