Best punches Visagie, Croft punches Best

On Tuesday night when the Barbarians faced Ireland at Kingsholm, we saw Ireland's flanker Neil Best and Baa Baa's front rower Cobus Visagie get themselves into a real tangle, resulting in Visagie coming off second best , looking battered and bruised and having to leave the field.

It's hard to see why the scuffle broke out. By the looks of it, Visagie was overzealous in his clearing out at the ruck, which turned into a wrestle, and attempted elbow/punch, then Best's dealing with powerful scrummagers face.

Visagie had to go off for treatment, and Best was probably lucky to stay on the field after his short jab connected so obviously. It wasn't the end of it though.

Fast forward 4 minutes, and we see retiring Queensland Red's stalwart David Croft get his own back. Best found himself at the bottom of a ruck, a little push and shove happened somewhere, and next thing you know, Croft unleashed a few well placed shots that mostly, judging by Bests bleeding nose, were actually missed by the cameras.

We may have seen three yellow cards on another occasion, but somehow all these incidents were overlooked.

Croft taking the law into his own hands was wrong, but it just goes to show that even if the ref does miss it, theres someone out there wholl make sure you get your due punishment.
