The Bulls vs The Sharks last weekend in the Currie Cup met for a Super 14 finalists rematch. The Sharks scored two tries in each half for their bonus point in a match of great excitement for the 27 000 spectators.
The game was effectively spoilt in the second half for a short period with the instant red card given to Bulls flyhalf Morne Steyn by referee Mark Lawrence for a spear tackle on flanker Jacques Botes.
The IRB clearly is attempting to stamp out on any form of the spear tackle. In my opinion, very harsh, and I'm a Sharks supporter.
