I guess everyone has a ref that burned them at the world cup. The saffers have BL, we NZers have WB and the Samoans have Peyper who didn't review the knock-on two seconds before the match-winning try that the Scots scored to get to the QF that Joubert reffed
Etzebeth has always struck me as a little insecure. The fake laugh that does a terrible job of covering his nervousness when he gets into a scuffle makes me cringe. Now, pushing around a team mate that is starting to look better than him. It was so clearly a man trying to exert his dominance in all the wrong ways. The guy is like a little kid that doesn't know how to control his emotions and just throws a hissy fit over nothing
Pressure does some strange things to people. The body reacts faster than the mind. Even on the weekend we saw Sunwolves kick for the corner rather than take 3 to win the game with a few minutes to go. Hurricanes I believe it was also kicked possession away with a few seconds left, which almost cost them the bonus point.
