Damian de Allende apologises but should not have been sent off

If you pause and play the video you can see that after the genuine attempted charge down he takes 2 steps, I repeat, 2 steps before coming into contact with LS. Now when you are at near full speed and attempting a charge down you cant just STOP dead after the moment is passed. The time taken to do 2 steps is so short there simply isn't time to deviate your running line. At that speed is reaction speed only, hence why his hands were raised as it is an involuntary reaction to protect his face / absorb the impact.

Adjudicators seem to agree but they are still saving Garces' blushes by saying it was a yellow or a pen but for me its not even a penalty. Once again french refs exposed for lack of consistency and composure.

But the bigger question has to be why is DD even on the pitch?!?! He is not, and has not been on form for some time.......oh wait AC is in charge, never mind. Move on.

Damian de Allende's great form continues with big hit against the Brumbies

So what are you guys saying now then? Devilliers is distinctly average and De allende should start hands down.....maybe the boys at RD aren't so silly after all me thinks

Catch up with MND sufferering Bok legend Joost Van Der Westhuizen

I think it just shows how little people actually cared about ALS when they did their challenges by the lack of comments here as i think its safe to say views and comments correlate...

This said a huge amount has been raised both in awareness and money so who cares really

Prop Coenie Oosthuizen's knockout run and two tries vs the Hurricanes

had a stormer in that game, but still needs to proove himself at an international level as my lasting memory of him is numerous penalties and sin binnings when playing for the Boks
