Calum Clark banned for 3 weeks for elbow on Donncha O'Callaghan

He's improving all the time DrG! He used his elbow this time instead of breaking someone else's!

I think Cudmore might have to dig deeper than ten shades. Clark sports the entire shit palette on his CV.

Italy fully deserving of first ever victory over the Springboks

Transformation in South African rugby has been a top down effort and so far has failed miserably. No where near enough youth development or structure and far too much interference at the very highest levels of our rugby. Sadly, a topic as volatile as this will never be broached by World Rugby regardless of the backwards nature of quota systems. Political appointments staining a sport? It's disgusting, I hardly want to hear about politics as it is, let alone see them on the rugby field.

The Bokke look drained.

Italy fully deserving of first ever victory over the Springboks

Not to pick nits here, but we aren't the dirty eye-gougers so many make us out to be, go ahead and look up the citing history. You're as likely to have your eyes gouged by an Italian, an Englishman, an Argentine, a Frenchman, or a New Zealander. I understand that you're approaching it in jest;however, speaking as a supporter, that banter has been stale for some time now. Considering our decline, I was hoping to catch a break against Italy. I'd rather gouge my own eyes than watch that match again.

Leonardo Senatore banned for 10 weeks after biting Keegan Daniel

I don't think he wanted to hurt hm, he was just letting him know that its incredibly annoying to be held back. If he really wanted to drop the guy he surely could have from that angle. Refs are painstakingly slow to call holding around the rucks, sometimes a little love tap is all you can do to help sort it out.

Sean O'Brien cited for punching Pascal Pape in opening minute of Cardiff clash

He wasn't being held as much as he was snatching at some bait that Pape threw out there. I'd love to punch someones bellybutton out their arse for holding, but the fact of the matter is that it reinforces that behavior! How many times has McCaw flirted with the law and had his head stood on, slapped, punched, kicked, and he continues to do the same thing because those reactions get players in trouble. You have to be a professional in this situation and return the favor, he whispered in your ear and grabbed your ass? Block him on Facebook and be down with it.

Eben Etzebeth reacts to journalist asking 'Stupid Question' about nickname

Well that was awkward. Also, to be honest, I don't think he looks like Cohen. Its a shame they couldn't have spoken a bietjie afrikaans for the guy to clear it up, probably would've been a different reaction.

Three Kiwis banned for punching or striking in Round 2 of Super Rugby

I was really hoping that you would use the word "apparently" just one more tim in that sentence.

South Africa stun Scotland with eight-try romp in Port Elizabeth

I thoroughly enjoyed the game and I'm really excited to see what the Boks can achieve over the next year heading into the WC. I do feel for Scotland because after a touring leg that stretched four different countries on three different continents, I'm sure they were beat to hell by the time they ran out in NM Bay Stadium. Scotland were beaten physically from the opening whistle (...mostly, I really hope Coenie can step his game up).

I didn't appreciate the shot on le Roux, and I'm sure he didn't either, which caused him to leave the field for a bit. I'm terribly one-sided with the Boks so maybe it wasn't on purpose. But I sure felt like it was at the time. Fair play to Scotland overall, I hope they continue to improve and start seeing some favorable results.

South Africa maintain home record with dramatic last ditch win over Wales

Fantastic job dragging an entire team through the mud to console your fears that you might actually have a hotheaded player on your hands with Liam Williams. I'd take a jab to the ribs any day over a sliding elbow to the jaw while looking the other direction.

South Africa maintain home record with dramatic last ditch win over Wales

I'm so thankful for that tackle from Williams and so is Steyn, that would've been tough to slot from the corner.
