About a year ago (on the 22nd of May 2010) my dad and I made our way to Orlando Stadium in Soweto (just South of Johannesburg) to watch the 2010 Super 14 semi-final match between the Crusaders (from New Zealand) and the Bulls. We used the park and ride bus service from Centurion to get there and back. It was my first time ever in Soweto. The atmosphere in the stadium was electric. The Bulls completely outplayed the New Zealanders, beating them by 39 points to 24 (thanks to tries by Pierre Spies, Zane Kirchner and Fourie Du Preez). The Bulls went on to become the 2010 Super 14 champions. I snapped this photo in the stadium last year and it has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 4th of May 2011.
