In the 2016 rugby season I wrote:
Affies came to Westville this past weekend and SLAUGHTERED us. I don’t think we won a single rugger match. Our firsts lost 65-0.
Today the local free rag arrived and I caught a glimpse of the sport heading and did a double-take:
“Westville slays Pretoria giant”
Turns out only the hockey received any coverage in the paper!
In true journalistic tradition I sent the headline, and not the rugby news, to my full-of-Elon Pretoria Boys High Old Boy china.
