Sebastien Chabal knocks out Marc Giraud with big right hook

I don't think you really mean to say this but I can only conclude that basicly you think it's okay to display this kind of behaviour and retaliate if the ref doesn't pick up the initial foul.

Fortunately most of the players on the pitch show more discipline than that. Plus we have a proper (be it slightly inconsistent) citing procedure for those kinds of incidents.

Seven incredible tries from the 2013 South Africa Sevens

Lots of skill involved in the Fiji try but my vote goes to Ignacio Martin. Huge individual effort, still amazed he got hold of the ball after 5 or 6 juggles and managed to stay on his feet.

Wing JP Pietersen's big tackle on Eighthman David Denton

So how often do you accidentally bump into the same person normally?

Willie Le Roux stars as the Springboks beat Scotland at Murrayfield

To be honest: he is not the only 'dirty' player on the pitch. I saw Bakkies headbutt his way into a few rucks, then there was De Villiers dropping onto a player and the Pietersen incident. I guess the Scottish tried to match the Boks physsicaly which off course doesn't work.

I love to see the SA backs carve up the defence but there is still a lot of aimless high kicking and a lot of off the ball stuff that matches the overall public opinion of the Springboks.

New Zealand tested by England but the World Champions remain unbeaten

My guess: Guest is South African and the margin with which the All Blacks won is nowhere near what anyone expected. So of course, it's the ref's fault (no disrepect meant towards all the proper SA fans on this site).

Two players red carded in Georgia vs Canada mass brawl

Kiwi's are way smarter than that! They manage to start a scuffle after a legitimite tackle on Carter and get a SA player yellow carded.

So obviously they do handle these sort of situations differently ;-)

Two players red carded in Georgia vs Canada mass brawl

a) Good to hear the crowd disaprove of this behaviour
b) Tackle should have been red in itself (imho)
c) Canadians should have let justice take it's course instead of intervening themselves
d) In a mass brawl like this, the ref can't do anything else but punish both teams.

The Springboks outmuscle Wales at the Millennium Stadium

Well, the offside wasn't the only problem with that (terrific!) try. I believe that there was a knock on by Habana before that (came of his hand and bounced into a Welsh player before Du Preez caught it). Missing both incidents is a little too incompetent in my eyes.

Nevertheless it was an awesome piece of play!

The Springboks outmuscle Wales at the Millennium Stadium

The best team probably won although the scoreline should have been a lot closer. It really baffled me that the last try did not go to the TMO. I guess the linesman is most to blame in this case.

Hibbard looked like he had to be carried of the pitch when he was substituted. What a player, he gave his everything.
