After all the dust has settled from this weekends loss to the Australians, there are two players who will be having a rest.

Jaque Fourie becomes the 3rd Springbok to currently be out of action for suspension, joining Bakkies “The Enforcer” Botha (9 Weeks) and Jean De Villiers (2 Weeks) who were suspended after rounds 1 and two respectively.

Irish referee George Clancy dished out a yellow card to Fourie for a dangerous tackle in the 3rd minute of the 30 – 13 loss to Australia. Fourie is supended until 22 August and will miss the next Springbok match on 21 August against the All Blacks.

Quade Cooper may have gotten away with house breaking but the SANZAR judiciary is not that easy to get away from and he has been served with a 2 week suspension. Cooper also earned a yellow card after the assistant referee brought a tip tackle to referee Clancy’s attention.

Quade Cooper’s suspension will be a major blow to the Australians as they will not have his much needed services for the two upcoming tri-nations matches against New Zealand. Wallaby coach Robbie Deans had the following to say on the suspension. ‘‘Obviously Quade’s disappointed and we’re disappointed but we’re in the process now of contemplating where to from here. ‘We may contemplate appealing.’’

  • We may contemplate appealing

    Okay English isn’t my 1st language but what does that mean??????????????

    Is that another way of saying “we are maybe going to think about maybe appealling” ;-)

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 4) :

    Here’s an interesting little bit on Cooper’s suspension form R365.

    The lower end of the IRB’s recommended tariff of suspensions for such a tackle is three weeks.

  • Fourie was dumb. One expects more from TWB13, especially knowing we are under the spotlight.

    Not sure of Copper’s disciplinary record ON the field, so cant comment on that.

  • People, if/when you lose a game you CANNOT complain about the bias of the ref – you look like (and probably are) a fool. Snorr does it and the world quite rightly calls him a clown. However surely a video compilation can be put together showing how Richie McCaw/David Pocock and others get away unpunished (time after time) for the same same things that send SA players to the bin. This compliation can be quietly be sent to IRB HQ and a request be made for it to be acted upon. If SA still feel that the IRB act in an unfair manner, they should take the issue further. (Here I start treading on shakey ground). Rugby is now a multi million dollar business. Peoples livelihoods depend on it being run professionally and fairly. If you still get a bad deal, take it further to some World/European court. Sounds foolish but maybe someone needs to start thinking out of the box.

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 4) : Their reasoning is that Jaque Fourie did this last year in The Tri-Nations, and Quade Cooper has his 1st offence of this nature, clearly Jaque has a “dirtier” record according to the commitee… What poppycock… But yes, Jaque deserves to be banned regardless… Cooper misses two Tri-Nations tests and this will cost his team dearly. Jaque needs the rest, but will be sorely missed for the clash in Soweto… Indeed agree with you that Juan De Jongh MUST play 13, with my only gripe being Meisie could get another shot at 12. Hopefully they play Jean Div, but the jury is out on him too… I sincerely hope we get our act together for the home leg… I cannot imagine a loss in Soweto… I CANNOT!!!!

  • The world says we are dirty players and bullies and why wouldn’t they. With 4 yellows and 3 suspensions in 3 weeks, I would say exactly the same. :twisted:

  • I think that the issue, not of the “spear tackles” but of the refs blowing of the rucks/mauls is a simple one. We (Southern Hemisphere) have a pretty good understanding of the laws as they where implemented in the S14 at the beginning of the year. These laws where not used in the NH and so the refs have had no time to adjust to them. I can remember some shocking calls at the start of the S14, and can only hope that in future we call apon a neutral ref to blow these incredibly important games.
