Bryan Habana awarded IRPA Try of the Year 2012 for try vs All Blacks

I think out of all the players listed Michelak deserves it the most. If you watched him this year you could definitly say he has made a great comback. The way he played in the Super 15 helped bring the Sharks to the Final (he was integral to that feat) and he has revitalized his international career and is really playing well for France.

Andrew Hore cited for off the ball stiffarm on Bradley Davies

This is an incident comparable to Bakkies headbutt on Jimmy Cowan and so should warrent a similar ban.

Michael Lynagh and HSBC Ambassador Jason Robinson react to England's loss

In all honesty I think the English played quite well and made some excellent breaks and had some good backline play. Can be improved of course but that just means playing more together, I think they are going to give us trouble next week.

Juan De Jongh scores great try vs Sharks, celebrates with Gangnam Style

I don't see why some people tend to get all agro over try celebrations. On the most part they are just a bit of fun (although it must be said I wasn't a very happy chappy when this one happened), some celebrations can be a bit provocative but on the most part its a good way for a player to express his delight over a great try. We are seeing it more often these days but its harmless really. I still think Breyton Paulse had the best celebrations though.

The Rugby Club Test Rugby Plays of the Year for 2012

Yeah this was a rather bland and bare highlights package. They really could of put in a bit more effort into this one. There were far more worthwhile highlights than this 'plays' suggested.

Scott Higginbotham cited twice for knee and head-butt on Richie McCaw

I can't believe he only gets 2 weeks for this when Etsebeth got 2 weeks for a 'mock' headbutt.

Pieter Dixon's red card after TMO recommendation rules kick to face

The citing commissioner found that there wasn't enough evidence of intent to warrent a red card. You can't really judge too much from only one angle. Many people who watched the game on both sides tend to agree it was accidental.

Brodie Retallick issued off-field yellow card for tip tackle on Andries Bekker

I think the 90 degrees bit comes from this part of the law: "player’s feet are still off the ground such that the player’s head and/or upper body come into contact with the ground".

Now it stands to reason that if your feet have been moved past the 90 degrees your upperback/neck/head will be the first to hit the ground.

All Blacks remain unbeaten with strong win over Boks in Soweto

People will call me biased but I don't think it was Strauss's intention to hit Whitelock in the head. It seemed to me like he was try to make a desperate attempt to knock the ball from his hands.
