I agree #10, although it's borderline so a yellow more than a red for me based on the tackle. What turns it into a red though is how late and unnecessary it is. This whole dummy runner excuse is nonsense, he had plenty of time to see BOD didn't get the ball but he set himself, lifted him up and drove through the tackle to knock him over. »
Botha obviously has a fairly bad reputation but I can't for the life of me see anything wrong here. He's runing flat out, at pace, on a great line. Unfortunate for Ayerza to get injured but no blame whatsoever on Botha. These things happen in contact sport. »
Perhaps if you removed your palm from your face for a second you might see that deliberately kicking an opponent on a rugby field is completely unacceptable! So yea, ROG is 'the bad one' in this case....
He's been cited for deliberately kicking an opponent, which has a low end entry point of 4 weeks and mid-level entry point of 8 weeks. So presuming he can't deny his guilt and given his previous record he's probably due 1/2 weeks reduction, so looking at either 2/3 weeks or 6/7 weeks depending on what view the panel takes. »
