I have to agree with you dude, New Zealand are clinical and know that they will win a game from anywhere. The same goes for their rugby league team after a fantastic display by the English League team and an even more impressive display by Ireland against the AB's. Its the way teams handle pressure and the Kiwis are so good at it, they absorb and absorb and as soon as you give them half a chance they take it. True Champions and it hurts me to say that I am a Bok fan. »
Great comments and I do agree roughing up is unnecessary but I don't mind it, after all it happens at the bottom of every ruck and after loads of big hits. "If you step into the ocean you become part of the food chain!" »
I to played from 89-2009 in SA and the UK and have many times had my face shoved in the dirt, I never punched someone for it but I have always made sure I did the same back after i put a big tackle in on them :) and there is no better feeling giving it back after you have smashed them in a tackle. All legit and great fun. Hands shakes after the game and a few beers in the club house. GOOD TIMES!!!!
Because its part of rugby, Pitersen did not hurt Denton. If you play rugby you would know that it happens, do you think the front row don't clash heads when they scrum down. If you cant take a shove on the head you should not be playing the game. MAN UP!!!
