  • This weekends Rugby I’m afriad has continued the trend of some very questionable foul plays.Its softening the game up.
    Van Heerden sent off for a totally legit tackle which turned out to effect the game in favour of the Bulls.
    The yellow in the Griqua game also had a major influenze ..what are rugby players now not allowed to bump into each other …?
    And to cite Fourie for a minor scuffle is ridiculous.

  • Outcome of Deon Fourie Hearing Vodacom Western Province hooker Deon Fourie was on Monday found not guilty of foul play at a SARU judicial hearing held in Cape Town.Fourie was cited under Law 10.4 (M) – for an act contrary to good sportsmanship. The Vodacom Western Province hooker was cited after his right hand allegedly made contact with the face area of The Sharks hooker Bismarck du Plessis. The incident occurred during the 61st minute of the game. Vodacom Western Province defeated The Sharks 33-21. SARU judicial officer Rob Stelzner considered evidence from the Vodacom WP hooker, video recordings and heard submissions from Fourie’s representative. He noted that Du Plessis’ nose was visible and above the hand of Fourie according to the available footage of the incident.Stelzner added that Du Plessis did not complain of any eye gouging or eye contact immediately after the incident. He also pointed out that the incident occurred in front of the Assistant Referee Marc van Zyl who did not observe any contact with Du Plessis’ eyes. As a result, the citing was not upheld.Issued by SARU Communication

    I really rate Fourie and it would have been a huge loss had he been found guilty.
