BY Philip Bendon  ·  Sunday Sep 25, 2022

Springbok colossus Eben Etzebeth has had a monumental season so far.

At just thirty-years-old the giant second row has already reached the incredible 100 test cap landmark.

Seemingly having been around the professional game forever, what Etzebeth has achieved for the Boks since making his debut in 2012 already puts him amongst the greatest players to ever grace the game.

Despite having plenty of miles under his belt, Etzebeth has shown no signs of slowing down and remains one of the key men in Jacques Nienaber’s squad.

Again at the forefront of everything positive that the Boks achieved yesterday, Etzebeth put plenty more impressive play on film.

One incident however that has caused a lot of discussion in the past twenty-four-hours has been the yellow card that Etzebeth received for the following incident.

Officiating has been a real point of contention throughout the Rugby Championship this season and this is one more incident that has been heavily debated.
