Super Rugby 2017 - Round 8 Highlights

Your subheading needs to read Stormers vs Lions (not Cheetahs).

Ed Quirk lashes out with elbow and knee after being held off the ball

If you transgress beyond a certain level, they throw the dicktionary at you?

Ed Quirk lashes out with elbow and knee after being held off the ball

That would have been a straight red if the ref or TMO had seen it, regardless of his "frustration". The holding back was for all of about two seconds. Does everyone who is ever held onto at a ruck have the right to lash out? Of course not. If he cops anything less than 4 weeks it will be an injustice. And yes, I love me some cous cous with my braai.

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.

Nicolas Sanchez banned for dangerous challenge after only being penalised

Indeed.

Nicolas Sanchez banned for dangerous challenge after only being penalised

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.
