UCT Ikeys win 2014 Varsity Cup final with unbelievable comeback

He released an official statement saying that he had been pepper sprayed just prior and couldn't see who was attacking him. Her statement was absolutely ridiculous claiming self-defense and that she was just trying to stop the brawl. Nobody should hit anyone over the back of the head 15 times with a shoe and expect a clean getaway.

If you'd like a link to the story and both his and her statements I can find it quickly. As a general rule of thumb, I feel people should avoid wading into mass brawl and beating people over the head. Damn shame it came to all that.

Carlin Isles dropped ball blooper ruins great fifteens debut try

I disagree Matt. Gio is a fantastic player but he's had his clock pretty thoroughly cleaned a few times and I dare say he would've walked a straighter line after standing up if he were a little heavier. Again my point was not weight on attack guys, it was on defense. Nothing can hold down a player with heart, but physics comes knocking every so often; in the case of smaller guys like Aplon, Kolbe, and Isles, it knocks a little harder.

Rugby HQ's Top 5 Biggest Hitters in Super Rugby history

I always appreciate players looking out for each other and taking the time put somebody in the recovery position. However, I do feel it best to just let the medical staff handle anything related to an injured player. I'd rather be without air for a few seconds than be rolled with broken or cracked vertebrae.

Carlin Isles dropped ball blooper ruins great fifteens debut try

He seems like an nice guy. He needs to pack on some weight and keep his head on a swivel as he climbs the ranks. Speed is all well and good on attack but when you're the last guy standing between Willem Alberts or Read and the posts, you might need a few kilos in your back pocket for safe keeping.

The Best Tries scored in Round 3 of Super Rugby 2014

I agree with most of what you said. The Sharks are my team so I hope to see them tuck it away this year and I think they have the talent to do so. I wasn't expecting the Cheetahs to be brushed aside like they were last weekend, very sad as they are my second team. You just don't get much classier than Adriaan Strauss. Hopefully they tighten up over the rest of the tournament.

The tahs are living up to the hype at the moment and their handling has been outstanding. Other teams have to slow the ball down and be absolutely tactical in their kicking if they don't want that ball run straight back down their throats. I think the Sharks have the pack to do just that and if Frans is on his tackling game he might be able to shut the movement down by gambling on a channel. With Pocock out we stand a better chance at the breakdown.

Can't write those damn Chiefs or Crusaders off though. Ever.

Jamie Mackintosh off the ball shoulder shot on Richie McCaw

I think he meant the writer "milked it" a little. Which he didn't, it was a shoulder off the ball. It wasn't the end of days or anything though. I do love seeing old King Richie getting a bump or two here and there (bar injuries of course).
