Owen Franks somehow escapes punishment after fingers in Wallaby face

Here is the incident. Nothing more than a head clash due to Mohaje's poor tackle technique coupled with the fact he had to rapidly change the person he was trying to tackle.

I'm not joking. Show me how he headbutted him in a tackle.

He did a number of high tackles, I give you that; but in no way did he give a headbutt-high tackle to take out Hernandez. It was just a clash of heads, nothing more.

Bok-lash earns South Africa an incredible comeback victory

You also have to remember that the transformation issue is also very much a factor these days.

I think Coetzee would be under a lot of political pressure if he were to put those Lions players in because many of them would replace black players.

As it is COSATU has already come out to blame white players for the poor performance. Saying they are deliberately playing bad and so conspiring to try get Coetzee removed.

So unfortunately we have to remind ourselves that, that beast still rears its ugly head. I also think its one of the main reasons we've been playing so poorly.

The politics, ever since before the WC, have just proved absolutely poisonous for the whole rugby environment in SA and its manifested itself in many ways for the Boks.

Leonardo Senatore banned for 10 weeks after biting Keegan Daniel

He clearly only attacks his head after he was bitten, before than the worse you can finger him for is having his arm slip up around Senatore's neck.

Yeah, I would of thought they would have had that one instead of the one against Wales. Brilliant example of a great set piece try.
