Stormers loose forward Schalk Burger was yesterday suspended for two weeks following an unsavoury incident against the Sharks on the weekend. Burger was found guilty of "an act contrary to good sportsmanship" by a Super 14 disciplinary committee.
Burger will miss the upcoming clashes with the Crusaders and the Reds, after his suspension comes for making an abusive gesture to a touch judge after he had been pinned as being involved in a scuffle.
Schalk is one of the best players in the world and normally keeps his cool, but he totally lost it here and I'd hate to see this type of behaviour on a rugby field again. They already have a sport for that - soccer.
