Quade Cooper likely to be suspended following red card vs Lions

Renaldo Bothma (Bulls) was just given 4 weeks for exactly the same offense. If anything, his swing to the jaw looked a little less intense. Considering that his track record is as good if not better than Cooper's (and assuming he showed remorse, which they all do), what exactly makes his a 4 week ban and Cooper's a 3 week ban? It all just seems so arbitrary and subjective.

Indeed.

Are you being serious or are you mocking the rule? Clearly Volminck caught the ball without having to jump. And clearly Sanchez never had a chance of getting to it.

Nicolas Sanchez banned for dangerous challenge after only being penalised

This ref was atrocious the whole game. When Sanchez committed his second cardable offense and still stayed on the field it was pretty clear that he had no business refereeing a match at this level.

Super Rugby 2017 - Round 3 Highlights

Yep, that's one of a few rugby rules I'd change if they'd let me. Makes no sense at all. If you can't get to the line, you can't score. You knew all along the post was there, so find a way around it.

Another is the quick tap and go from a penalty (which is hardly ever taken from the precise spot anyway). This nonsense of running straight at players who aren't back 10m and them backtracking with their hands in the air is just daft, in my opinion.

Steven Luatua receives straight red card for dangerously high tackle

Bloody Millennials. Surprised Nanai-Williams doesn't have a manicured ironic beard to go with his sense of entitlement to a penalty.

Legendary scrumhalf Joost van der Westhuizen passes away

We'll never see a scrummie like Joost again. He had it all. RIP big fella. You made this game better.

Hurricanes beat the Lions to win maiden Super Rugby title

Much respect to the Canes. They completely outplayed us in this game. Thoroughly deserve this after a great season. But we'll be back next year... bigger, stronger, faster... :)
