REPLIES TO READ­ERS’ COM­MENTS Oh please Samkelo, so you think the [al­leged] Dros rapist is be­ing un­fairly treated (“Restau­rant rape case”, Novem­ber 6)? Well, tell that to the lit­tle girl whose life was shat­tered by the [al­leged] rapist. He should be locked up and the key thrown very far away.

KAT On the sub­ject of ref­er­ees and with re­gard to chirps from Gor­don Up­ton and Louis van Wyk (“Ref­er­ees con­cern”, Novem­ber 7), may I humbly high­light the fol­low­ing. In 1974 the Bri­tish Li­ons toured this coun­try and mas­sa­cred all they came against, win­ning all their games bar the fi­nal Test, which they “drew” 13 all. All matches were ref­er­eed by SA of­fi­cials.

In this fi­nal test Fer­gus Slat­tery scored a le­git­i­mate try in front of SA ref­eree Max Baise and the SA li­nes­man. The try was over­ruled and the Test was drawn, thus deny­ing the Bri­tish Li­ons a his­tor­i­cal clean sweep. The mighty Gareth Ed­wards in a in­ter­view with BBC re­cently said it was a shocker that the try was not awarded.

As Rob men­tioned in his chirp (“Boks go down to Eng­land”, Novem­ber 6), we are be­com­ing a bunch of cry­ba­bies.

BOERSEUN Leon van der Mescht (“Alarmed at views in dagga let­ter”, Novem­ber 7), only dope heads would agree and choose your ig­no­rance. Here we are try­ing to teach the youth to make bet­ter choices. NAAZ
