Just love this. Listen to the crowd when Nomis scores; they went ballistic. Also notice how out of breath is Gerhard Viviers after his Siddie, Siddie exhaltation.

That; "En hy druk hom langs die pale, langs die pale" expressed in absolute euphoria is pure magic. This man was the voice of Springbok rugby; in a time before television he made the game came alive for the thousands sitting in rural SA listening on their transistor radio's.
