We say that Bucs are preparing for the break, but they're actually preparing for the period after the break

It's called an international break, but it's not really a break. International players will be busy with the World Cup qualifiers and those who are not selected will be at work, training and preparing for the next game. 

For Bucs that is their Premier Soccer League fixtures where they will have more time to make sure they finish higher than usual. For a while now, there's no Caf commitments to tire them out.

Orlando Pirates don't even have an official game this weekend because they're not participating in the MTN8 Cup, so their preparations have begun earlier. In case you doubted their responsibility and thought they were at the beach in Durban, it is the club's Twitter account that made this point.

You can even watch the players working hard in training during the 'break'.
