The Television Match Official (TMO) protocol for Vodacom Super Rugby has been amended thanks to new available technology, SANZAAR announced on Friday.

The number of camera angles available to match officials, as well as the use of split-screen television software have made these amendments possible. It also reflects SANZAAR’s desire to tighten the process and make it more accurate, more efficient and to reduce the time taken for the decision-making process.

So what is different in 2017?

Should the referee or one of his team (Assistant Referees or TMO) wish to initiate a review of a decision (via replay by the TMO), the referee will first state to the TMO his “on-field decision” based on his real-time view. The TMO will then review the given incident accordingly, based on the referee’s assessment.

The TMO must be persuaded that the evidence is compelling before proving the on-field referee’s call wrong, and therefore overturning the call.

‘What’ can be referred for review remains the same as the World Rugby Protocol (no change) and the ‘two phases back only’ protocol still stands. Continue reading

In a young democracy, equal opportunity for all is measured especially by economic welfare. Many of us might be aware of the trading prices of crude oil and gold, but we also need to take into account the role that independent entrepreneurial enterprises, filling a requisite niche, play in the development of financial prosperity for South Africans.

We spoke to J.P. Prinsloo, owner of productions support company Prifactor, to shed some light on the matter.

The City of Cape Town today, 15 February 2017, received a consignment of durable medical equipment from the Taipei Liaison Office based in the city.

STATEMENT BY THE CITY’S EXECUTIVE MAYOR, PATRICIA DE LILLE

As of Monday 20 February 2017, the identities of all customers who pay admission-of-guilt fines or who appear in court regarding contravention of Level 3B water restrictions will be made public by the City of Cape Town.

The City will also publish the lists of fines issued in various areas where contraventions take place, including street names but without street numbers.

Similarly, street names of the top 100 highest consumers for each category of domestic, commercial, and government user who are under investigation for contravening the water restrictions will be published, along with the water meter reading.

We will also be writing to these customers demanding that they provide the City with an explanation for their relatively high water use. Our investigations will continue should no satisfactory explanation be given.

In light of the current water crisis, today 16 February 2017, along with the four area-based mayoral committee members, I started delivering warning notices to some of the households which we have identified in Pinelands with high water consumption.
