Vodacom WP looseforward Schalk Burger will be available for selection ahead of this weekend’s Absa Currie Cup clash against the Valke at Newlands.

 Schalk Burger received two yellow cards, the second leading to a red card, in Province’s 35-17 win over the Vodacom Free State Cheetahs in Bloemfontein this past Saturday and faced a disciplinary hearing earlier today.

The news following the hearing is that no further disciplinary action would be taken against Burger and that he would be available to play for his province this weekend.

The Vodacom WP team to face the Valke at 3pm on Saturday will be announced tomorrow.

  • Would have been sad if he would stop now. Just start to get back to his old form.

    This qoute quite interesting:
    “At his disciplinary hearing earlier today, committee chairman Willem Gaum ruled that a player could not be cited for an incident after having been ordered from the field in such circumstances.”

    Now what does this mean in plain boeretaal, the circumstances part?

    I am not one that like to critizise the ref but surely Bosch was out of his league in this game.

    His constant whistle in this game frustrate the [email protected] out of me, specially towards the end and when you look at Lawrense reffing in the other game.

  • I have always felt that any red card, whether a single incident or two yellows, should result in an automatic one week suspension. If the foul deserves greater sanction, it can be handled through citing, but once a red card is given, the player should automatically miss their next game. Just my opinion of course.

  • I may be wrong, but I think that in a past RWC this was indeed the case, red card meant one missed game.

  • @Dancing Bear (Comment 15) :

    That is why I am happy for a red to be an auto suspension but not for two yellows. I don’t think the first in this case warranted a yellow and therefore he should really only have been on a yellow.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 18) : You don’t have much confidence in your fellow refs do ya KSA? :grin: I prefer to think that most refs get it right most of the time, so there may be a rare instance where the yellow was not warranted, but once the yellow was given, whether right or wrong, to commit another yellow card foul is just stupid. And stupidity deserves a one week suspension. :wink:

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 24) : So we agree, two yellows=red=automatic suspension. Since the only way to get two yellows is either to commit two yellow card offenses or to be stupid. :wink:

    In my prime in SA, 1st Div with the Top Div being the Premiership. Over here there is only one division so………….

    Will say this though, in SA we used to officiate 3 times a week sometimes 4.
    Wed night match
    Friday night Match
    Sat morning school
    Sat afternoon TJ and Match

    Any combo of the above to make up 2,3 or 4 events a week.

    Over here we get about one match every 4 – 6 weeks so staying “match fit/sharp” over here is NOT easy.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 25) : :lol: You got me right. This was up in Long Island Sound right by New York City, while Tropical Storm Hanna was hitting on Saturday. :lol: Not much breeze yet. This was a Beneteau 36.7. A friend got this boat after it was run up on the rocks as an insurance total. He rebuilt her and this was her first regatta. He put together a crew of really good sailors that had never sailed together before, and only two had ever been on this type of boat. We ended up finishing 2nd for the regatta, had a blast.

    In the picture we were finishing one of our downwind legs with the spinnaker. We had a mark ahead of us to round, and go back upwind. If you notice the boat behind us had already taken their spinnaker down, we carried it a lot longer and extended our lead. It was fun sailing with a bunch of guys that knew what they were doing but had never sailed together.

    Only on rare occasions though, and it does help to be a ref who never says no, so you get a call on a friday afternoon “such and such can’t get to XYZ this evening or tomorrow, can you go?”

    Used to keep a set of kit in my car on Friday’s just incase i had to go straight from work :cool:

    One of my BIGGEST regrets about not being in SA is the end of that type of fun.

I said then the kid had talent and potential written all over him. He has not developed in the past couple of years, so I hope that this move to the Sharks will aid his development. Still think he has tons of potential.

  • @wpw (Comment 53) : Beast has been fantastic Wes, he has such an amazing attitude. Seems to really love everything he does, and works so hard. Any coach would love to have a team of players with his attitude.

    Actually quite honestly Mujati did just fine in the last match against Oz. He was very solid in the tight phases, and as you said did not go backwards. I would still like to see more of him in other phases of play as well. He most certainly didn’t embarrass himself or the Boks, and therefore, I now change my view and say he does indeed deserve to be a Bok.
