This was once again apparent during the United Rugby Champions final between the Stormers and the Bulls. Bulls winger Canan Moodie fended off Stormers front-ranker JJ Kotze after the latter attempted to tackle him.

Kotze was nearly knocked out, getting up off the ground in a daze trying to figure out if he was in Cape Town or Johannesburg. This was not lost on Lonwabo Mtimka and Khaya Malotana, who waxed lyrical humorously despite what was a serious situation.

Kotze was then subbed off for his safety because of rugby's protocols regarding head injuries.

Famously, the Stormers won their first ever championship trophy since their establishment in 1996 against their hated rivals, winning 18-13 in what was a nerve-wracking encounter at the Cape Town Stadium.

Life appears to be going swimmingly if you are a Kaizer Chiefs supporter at the moment.

As reported by Sports Brief, the Amakhosi are in fine form at the moment, with the events at the Cape Town Stadium last week seemingly proving it. A YouTube video showed thousands of Chiefs supporters merrily belting out Ntando's hit 'Asambe Nono' at the Cape Town Stadium last week during and after the DStv Premiership encounter against Stellenbosch FC.

The visitors won the match 3-1 courtesy of a Caleb Bimenyimana hat-trick via three penalties. After the match, the Chiefs players did a lap of victory around the pitch, joining in the singing of the song that has become the staple of happy spectators at stadiums around South Africa.
