Giant Bok teammates Eben Etzebeth and Lood de Jager come to blows

I think Etzebeth is a fantastic lock, and I'd pick him for the Boks any day. But I do feel the "enforcer" tag has gone to his head. And not only him. His team mate, Ryno Elstadt, who came on a little later in the game is also constantly referred to as an "enforcer", and it's as if he feels he must live up to the label. This was not the only scuffle that Etzebeth started in this game, and Elstadt was responsible for at least two or three more.

England beat Wales in tour warmup match at Twickenham

Although it wouldn't have changed the outcome, the ability of the TMO to get that call so wrong is disappointing. If you have multiple views and lots of time, there really is no excuse.

5 Awesome Tries from Round 13 of Super Rugby

Some great tries. Pay special attention to the Jaguares frontranker at around 1:40 who, for a very brief second, thinks he's in with a chance of hauling down Skossan. Top drawer sprinting.

Leonardo Senatore banned for 10 weeks after biting Keegan Daniel

Something like that. And I'm sure they all get their moms to testify for them.

Ben Botica inexplicably kicks the ball away as Harlequins attempt late comeback in final

I suspect Jake White is proving some kind of point here with Bok surplus/reject players.

Leonardo Senatore banned for 10 weeks after biting Keegan Daniel

"...mitigating factors including the player’s good character, his playing record and his disciplinary record..."

I thought we'd just been told of his previous 9 week ban for biting. It seems that every single player who appears before a disciplinary panel always has a clean track record.

Jason Emery suspended for 4 weeks for dangerous challenge on Willie le Roux

Yes, because if he was he probably would have punched le Roux afterwards too. Thank goodness he's not. :)
