Springboks full of belief after thumping the Wallabies in Brisbane

All blacks vs Springboks is going to be epic!
I personally hope it all kicks off with a 'Kapa O Pango'

New #BeattheBoks campaign video causes a stir in South Africa

That's probably cos they're making fun of us sensitive south africans, if the banter had been at the usual stinging australian level okes would be going 'vokken bos'!

Eben Etzebeth banned for attempted headbutt on Nathan Sharpe

That's the exact kind of thinking that resulted in Etzebeth getting banned.
We have to use common sense and not mindlessly follow the rules exactly as they were written. When the law was made obviuously "contact" was used to differentiate between an unsuccessful and a successful attack, but no room was made for an attack that physically made contact contact but had no effect - like this one.
By your defenition of contact being "physically making contact no matter how small" you are saying that there is no difference between what happened here and a headbutt that breaks a nose.
To put it another way, if this had been a fighting contest, would that have been scored as a successful headbutt?

Eben Etzebeth banned for attempted headbutt on Nathan Sharpe

To me it looks like Eben just tried to scare Sharpie, i think if he really wanted to headbutt the old geezer with everything he had, he could have.

@Pretzel - no dude, no contact was made, maybe if this was some physics experiment you could say that contact was made, but in rugby terms see the video underneath this one for what contact means.
