Been out, was going to watch tomorrow on catch-up but don’t think I will bother now. Thanks folk for the reports
Someone should have told him the meaning of "taking the knee"Be surprised if some of these don’t get more of an airing as the week goes on. Still can’t understand how kolbe didn’t get a red for that tackle on Murray. The tackle by Faf doesn’t look great. Seen yellow for similar in the past. Itojes knee, when slowed down like that looks a cheap shot that could get him in bother if looked at. Not sure what Hogg is doing. I see he’s came out and released a statement denying any biting.Gatland now faces an anxious wait to hear whether World Rugby decide to take action, though South Africa also appeared to get off lightly after two dangerous tacklesinews.co.uk
All said, ref next week is going to have to have a massive spine and a keen eye for this “cup final”.
All springboks have silly names.For Faf to do a high tackle, he has to jump. So it must have been premeditated.
Anyway he deserves a red for having a silly name and a haircut to match.
He is, that is a fact, no matter how much you claim otherwise. He is no doubt an excellent player and a fine captain, but somebody else should have had the p!ace.
Faf just stopped after that tackle waiting for the whistle.
Only seen the highlights, but the match officials did not have a good one, they certainly bottled the red card. The ref might have told the captains that he was happy to keep going to the cards but totally failed to back that up.
I am possibly influenced by rugby league, but I am ok with the downward pressure for the try. Not sure of the exact wording of the law to say one way or the other for the technical merit.
