UCT Ikeys win 2014 Varsity Cup final with unbelievable comeback

does the Varsity Cup play any slightly different rules? I kept hearing the commentators droning that a Penalty kick was only 2 points?

Also, was there an issue with the clock? Seemed that the final scrum was awarded at a time (on the TV clock at least) where many a ref would have just whistled No Side.

Amazing effort. Goes to show just how deep the talent drawer is in places like ZA -- guys who we've never heard of (and may never hear from again) doing amazing stuff with the prolate spheroid..

Friday Funnies - Lote Tuqiri try line blunder

This was from 2005. Sam N-K's blunder was in 2007.

So I guess the shove from Lote was a shove of empathy, an "I've been there too, mate"..

Eh, probably not, probably was just one a-hole calling out another.

Massive try saving hit by Israel's Yonatan Kaplan vs Gibraltar

a good thing the ref didn't mistake the red jerseys for the Crusaders.

Otherwise, it would have been a penalty try and a straight red to Kaplan.

Maurie Fa'asavalu makes huge hit on Andrea Masi in the Aviva Premiership

by Northern Hemisphere invention - do you mean the English common law concept of precedence in law, whereby historical rulings over time establish the precedent?

if so, while "attempt to wrap" isn't codified in the law, it's clearly there from a common law point of view.

laws vs rules -- learn it, live it, love it
