Tyler "The Shark" Fisher

On a dreary winter's evening, unseasonal rains left The ABSA Stadium looking more Derbyshire than Durban. As torrential downpours pelted the faithful, the Natal Sharks faced the prospect of an impressive Western Province outfit; far more experienced in such conditions. Butch James was away on international duty and Coach Dick Muir did what he did best: Bucking the national trend of conservative coaching by showing faith in talented youth. He plucked a Bloemfontein youngster from the Sharks youth system and the faith was repaid. Francois Steyn was born.

One of the most humbling sites awaits any school cricketer who receives the privilege of playing on Lower field towards the end of an exhaustive day of cricket. With the sun setting amidst the famous clock-tower in the background dedicated to those lost in wars gone by you feel a sense of pride and duty to uphold the gentlemen's game.

Records Tumble As Westville Boy's Win IP Gala

 

Traditionally, the Friday night of the Midmar weekend is always an exciting swimming evening at Westville Boys' High School and this year was no exception.  This is the evening that KZN Schools get a chance to swim against schools from around the country who are in KZN to compete in the Midmar Mile.

On a driving range near you, a budding young golfer rushes home, eager to catch a glimpse of Tiger Woods; even if it's simply on T.V. In the blink of an eye, the selfsame rookie contests a playoff at St. Andrews. A promising tennis player punishes the wall of the town's tennis club, mimicking a Roger Federer cross-court backhand.

Meat, Rice And When To ICE

Sorry to disappoint those of you who thought that this was a dietary segment, it will however provide you with some food for thought. Many of my patients ask me when they should apply ice to an injury, and when they should use heat, and I thought now would be a good time to address this topic.

Shoulders - Your Blades Of Glory

As joints go, shoulders are right up there with the most complicated. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that they were designed badly, rather that we as the operators tend to over do things sometimes.
