Jerry Collins charges into Tony Woodcock

Jerry Collins charges into Tony Woodcock

You really don't want to get in this guys path when he's on the run. Tony Woodcock learnt that the hard way, thanks to Danie Rossouw and the fact that he was lingering aimlessly.

Butch James takes a long dropout that is taken by the All Black halfback Kelleher. He flips it to big Jerry who lines up the first thing he sees, which is Schalk Burger by the look of things... until Tony Woodcock (his own loose-head) is shoved into his running line by Springbok flanker Rossouw.

While this looks like dirty play, and it may well be, Rossouw was actually blocked from getting to Collins by Woodcock, albeit unintentional or not. The shove at the end was probably a little unnecessary though.

All in all, a massive collision, especially when seen live in real time.

HAHAHAHAAHAHA that was classic, im sorry but when someone blocks you in a game it is so frustrating and to see someone getting crunched due to blocking is so satisfying! makes it even better at the fact it was a Kiwi!!!

Nice to see a cheating AB copping it off his own team mate- fair play to Rossouw hopefully the same will happen to an ausie sometime soon because they are terrible for blocking opposition defenders.

Like the coach Henry said about the French scrumming after the first game? Or did you mean like Mauger said about the Boks targeting McCaw in this last game?Im confused! ;)

This site certainly is not for AB haters. If it were I don't think there would be all those legend clips and definitly not tributes to guys like Buck Shelford.

guys, it's only ever cheating if you get pinged for it, you southern hemisphere lot should know that by now. Have to say from the clip that it looks as though Roussouw was scared to take the contact himself though. Let's hope he's still pussy enough come the main event in September (14th)!!

lol, all these dirty tactics by the boks and still they lost. lol. That was the only way the only way they were gonna beat the blacks, the all blacks turned over too many ball and made too many errors and still won. Just wondered why they didnt counter attack as many times as they usually do, they would have blown the boks away if they did, notice how both tries were counter attacks off kicks that didnt find touch, the australian team will be smart enough not to kick to them but to only find chalk. I think the rest of the world has to be worried, they didnt play great but still won against an elite team!!! Oh the boks need to work on their fitness, too many fat boys on the field.

The South africans were chickens in that game."Ahh a big scary mouri is charging at me, i'll push one of his players in front of him. i almost broke a nail BOO HOO!" Grow some balls south africa ur pathetic if you hsve to push other players infront just so u don't have to make a tackle

the NZers that visit this site dont start having goes at every player shown thats from another country but why does everyone else have a go at us? It especially pisses me off when SA people start calling us dirty cheaters. Pretty rich coming a team that is consistently far dirtier than us

i hate 2 resort 2 this but i gets me wen south africans r accused of being cheaters wen u have some 1 liek richie mcaw hoo is probley the best in the world at killing the ball. if woodcock wasnt in the postion and had made an attempt to move he wouldnt have been pushed. i think its pretty smart play if the other player is stupid enough 2 stand there

i love Jol's comment on the 28th of June 2007, "let's hope he's pussy enough come the main event in September (14th)"... Just a reminder S.A played Eng on the 14th in the pool match and the result was 36 - 0.
