Eben Etzebeth in hot water after making contact with Greig Laidlaw's eyes

Rubbish citing by the English commissioner ahead of the England test? Go figure.

This kind of nonsense tarnishes the lad's reputation for good, even if he's 100% innocent.

Samoa stun Wales with impressive win at the Millennium Stadium

Bakkies Botha got a 4 week ban for a far more innocuous ruck clean on Adam Jones in the Lions tour a few years back. Teams like Samoa certainly get away with more when it comes to this kind of thing because, subconsciously, refs accept it as part of their style of rugby. Much the same way the AB's get away with ruck infringements - it's the way they play the game, so how can you really penalise them for it? :)

When it comes to withstanding temperatures of up to minus 160 degrees, no one touches them.

Fecking Jonathan Davies again. Is there a worse commentator in the history of the game? Only thing worse than Davies is Davies when the Welsh are winning. So thank god we didn't have that too.

Scotland's David Denton puts Richie McCaw on his backside

Who is “we”? Once I know your requirements, I can possibly recommend a Strauss that’s right for you. We have a few more. Adriaan Strauss is a blond hooker who will be without a Bok job once Bismarck’s feeling better (although his Bok history might make him slightly ineligible). Then we also have a centre, Andries, who is considered a bit of a journeyman and has just signed for the Kings in Port Elizabeth. Not too flashy, but a strong runner and punishing defender. Can’t think of any more, except maybe Tiaan, who is in his mid to late forties now and hasn’t played in about 15 years. But he’s played for the Boks and Australia (even got a WC medal with them) and used to tackle wildebeest to practice his technique (or so the story goes). Maybe good for a coaching job? Let me know and I’ll set it up.

Denton's a great player and thoroughly deserves his starting place. But now another Saffa no.8 has headed for Scotland and has hinted at hoping to make the Scottish squad one day: the bearded captain of the Lions, Josh Strauss.

And probably an even better loose forward prospect, CJ Stander (from the Bulls) has moved to Ireland and said he'd like to one day play for Ireland.

Not sure what my point is, except that one day we'll have more talent playing abroad than for the Boks.

Rob Simmons escapes on-field punshment for dangerous tackle on Yannick Nyanga

So this gets 8 "active" weeks, and Thompson gets one week (in which he was going to be rested anyway? The outcry on Twitter and the IRB's subsequent promise to relook Thompson's sentence is welcome but not good enough. These double standards are beyond a joke. Like Kevvie Mealamu's headbutt ban. And Kevvie and Tana's collective spear tackle tap on the wrist.

Midweek Madness - Referee inspects the bottom of a ruck

At least he had the wherewithal to stick to the new 5 second rule.

There was still 15 minutes left in the game. I shudder to think what the final score could have been had Simmons been sent off.

All Black Adam Thomson's boot on Alasdair Strokosch's head

Yeah, so both Richie and the Scottish centre dived for the ball and both were technically in the wrong. My beef here is with Davies the Immaculate Pillock, and his perpetual stream of consciousjizz for Richie, even when he’s clearly breaking the law. Being a fanboy is one thing. Being both a fanboy and a commentator is another. But being a fanboy, a commentator and completely fecking wrong is just plain unacceptable.

I want Davies out of that commentary box, and I want it yesterday.

P.S. That move there was Richie’s signature move for the entire game – enter from the side and flop down over the ball, turning his back to the opposition. I lost track of how many times he did it. Got blown up just once, but I guess that’s like the story of the thousands of beached starfish – at least the ref made a difference to that one ruck.
