Vodacom Bulls coach John Mitchell believes his team “still has a long way to go” before being the finished article ahead of this year’s Vodacom Super Rugby tournament. The Bulls will start the tournament a week later than the rest of the teams, mainly because they have a bye in week one, but Mitchell and his management team have been hard at work trying to craft a squad that is incredibly talented, not as experienced as it needs to be and has to become better to attain success in the competition.
With five tries in his last two games, Nico Lee may not be on everybody’s lips outside Bloemfontein right now, but the talented midfielder is certainly using his opportunities to remind rugby fans just how good he is. Lee scored a hat-trick in the first Pro14 derby game in Port Elizabeth and followed it up with a brace in the corresponding game last Saturday. He has been a rock in the midfield since the Toyota Cheetahs lost captain Francois Venter.
The Toyota Cheetahs may have virtually secured their place in the Guinness Pro14 quarterfinals with back to back wins over the Southern Kings on Saturday, but they will need some new firepower if they are to get to the playoff rounds unscathed. With a week off now before their fourth tour abroad in the competition, the Cheetahs will need to find two new wingers, as their try-scoring pair of Makazole Mapimpi and Craig Barry both played their last games for the franchise this past Saturday.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
