Gloucester's Andy Hazell sees red following alleged eye-gouge

The prop dove to the ground and covered his head because he knew damn well he was about to get slapped, and hopefully get the player sent off... he succeeded.

No matter what you don't react like that, remember the lions, Burger buried his finger to the the second knuckle in fitzgeralds' eye... should've been a red. You gotta keep your cool... it was seen, players relied on the officials and you just gotta respect their decision.

Jonny Wilkinson keeps hope alive for 2013 British & Irish Lions tour

That's just normal pre-game banter, Saffers surprised me, they actually boo'd their own players in Pretoria who were from the Bulls rivals... great laugh all the same.

Jeremy Guscott, Martin Johnson, Will Greenwood, Fran Cotton, Gareth Edwards, Syd Millar are the ones that spring to mind, and obviously Willie John McBride with 5 tours (Mr. 99 call in SA back in the day). Dallaglio, Brian O'driscoll did actually if you include the 3 mins against NZ. Martyn Williams.

I think there's quite a few more as well, probably gnarly forwards.

One thing I forgot to say is that the craic for the fans is class, the sessions are insane and the locals really go for it, I went to SA (O'Gara fecked up 2nd test) , brother did NZ Tour, sister oz tour before that and a lot of my mates have gone on 4 or 5 tours. As an experience there is nothing like it, 1 month of pre-match pints and post match excess, 3 games a week, and great friends made. Its worth it if you can get the time off work.
