Bismarck Du Plessis controversially yellow carded for huge hit on Dan Carter

That is Bismarks trademark move going into contact. He leads with the forearm and has (as far as I can remember) not been penalized for it before. The problem with this one is that Messam had bad tackle technique, went high and Bismarks elbow hit him. He clearly was not intentionally leading with the elbow aiming for Messam's throat.

New #BeattheBoks campaign video causes a stir in South Africa

Yeah same here, haven't seen any news of this being thought of as offensive over here either. They could have done better.

Two Argentina players cited after eye-gouge and biting claims in Mendoza

There may well be footage that we did not get to see on TV that more clearly shows what went on. So I would be hesitant to judge solely on what we see in the above clip.

Well maybe you should stop moaning about that gouge because all's fair game when you are in the ruck. *Sarcasm off

Your hypocrisy astounds me.

If you watch the video you see that the Arg player tries to do a very low pick and drive; Estebeth being a Lock is rather tall and can't get under him to make the tackle so you see him putting his arm under his should (if that makes sense) which then precedes to slip up and ends up by his neck. He clearly did not intentionally try "choke him out" like many people claim.

I find it highly hypocritical that people are trying to defend the Argies actions while if the roles were reversed their would have been an absolute hounding by everyone on how the dirty boks play.

Furthermore, I see that people are trying to give Etsebeth a bad rep saying he is like Bakkies. Just because he plays physically does not mean he is dirty and as far as I know he has only been found guilty of a mock headbutt, not exactly the mark of a dirty player.

The Matt Toomua Falcon against the All Blacks

Never liked Steve Hanson and this just keeps reaffirming my position. What a toss, its ok for fans to rib other teams over players that are not originally from their country but not the coach.

Whatever happened to teams swapping jerseys? I see the one Lions player about to do it at the end of this vid.
