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... :)

Former player Glen Jackson will ref the 2016 Super Rugby Final

The only reason you don't appoint a neutral referee for a final is lack of credible alternative. I can sort of understand this about Argentinean and Japanese refs, but come on Australia, you're not even trying.

Having said that, I really like Glen Jackson and I have no reason to doubt he'll handle this game well.

TJ Perenara escapes ban after kicking Sam Cane in the face

He needn't have been so concerned. Unless it involved a switchblade or a lead pipe, they would never prevent a star Kiwi from playing in a crunch match. And even if there were weapons involved, they'd still look hard for extenuating circumstances. Like "he phones his mom once a week, he owns a cat and he's only been arrested for indecent exposure twice".

TJ Perenara escapes ban after kicking Sam Cane in the face

Can only be because no one wanted to see Perenara miss the final. Which makes a complete joke of the citing procedure. Because that kick was nasty, and he immediately knew he'd messed up.
