  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 1) : I saw the replay it didn’t look too bad. If they keep to the standard then it certainly didn’t warrant a red card. Doppies was the only guy carded in that game.

  • @war1 (Comment 4) : Agree – it looks like he was already airborne, and hurt himelf more than Jantjies when he landed in a pile of limbs.

  • What a boring week this was with the Sharks not playing! With the evidence I saw in the Cheetahs vs Hurricanes game, I think the Sharks will smash the Canes this coming weekend. Their defense are a big weakness.

  • @Honey Badger (Comment 12) : That is what makes it so EASY. You only have to pick ONE winner each week.

    What could be easier? :oops: :razz:

  • SHOCKING! They cited him for that?! There was absolutely nothing wrong with that incident – he tried to charge down the ball!

    I cannot believe the citing system. They let punches and high tackles go unpunished but cite clean outs and charge downs?

    I have to wonder if the Stormers don’t have some people in the pocket because none of their high tackles or punches have been cited, yet every time somebody in SA is cited it is when they played against the Stormers.

  • he charged into Jantjes’ legs first after the fullback had made a clearance kick. :?:

    Should that apostrophe perhaps be a comma or not there at all? Punctuation saves lives. :mrgreen:

    Anyway, it was a reckless challenge. Even if there was no intent.

  • @King Shark (Comment 18) : I must agree with the fact that the siting is shocking. Rhodes clearly tried to pull out of it and evoid htting Jantjes. But then Jantjes pulled his soccer acting skills from school and went down like a little girl.

    Xmas is business. Easter/Passover is religion. Accept the wish in the spirit it was given.

    Not my place to question someones core beliefs especially if they wish me peace.
