All Blacks too strong for error-ridden Springbok challenge in Christchurch

Coetzee dropped Le Roux and Pietersen, they weren't unavailable.

Compilation of the unpunished Teboho Mohoje high tackles against Argentina

You Europeans must just stop sending us Frenchman to ref our games :)

I'm sure everyone would be happy if a certain Welshman was reffing more RC games :)

Owen Franks somehow escapes punishment after fingers in Wallaby face

You are the ones that are blind, seeing things that are not there. WTF is even your guys definition of a head butt, anytime someone's head hits another?

I'm not blind to Mohoje's high tackling during the game; however your claim that he went and inentionally headbutted Hernandez in the split second he had to tackle him is beyond ridiculous.

We aren't talking about the headlock.

Do you realise you don't have to tackle someone at waist level? Have you never seen someone tackle while upright?

Looking at his arms tells me he makes contact around Hernandez's arms but because they both get knocked out by the head knock he never gets to complete the wrap since both of them are now dropping to the floor.

Furthermore, how can it be considered a headbutt when at the moment of impact he is turning his head? Who in their right mind tries to headbutt someone with their temple?

Really, really?

Please tell me how it was high? Because they hit heads? Your delusional.

Don't talk nonsense about Argies getting the full face of the law. SA has long been under closer scrutiny than the rest for foul play.

Here is the incident. Nothing more than a head clash due to Mohaje's poor tackle technique coupled with the fact he had to rapidly change the person he was trying to tackle.

I'm not joking. Show me how he headbutted him in a tackle.

He did a number of high tackles, I give you that; but in no way did he give a headbutt-high tackle to take out Hernandez. It was just a clash of heads, nothing more.

Bok-lash earns South Africa an incredible comeback victory

You also have to remember that the transformation issue is also very much a factor these days.

I think Coetzee would be under a lot of political pressure if he were to put those Lions players in because many of them would replace black players.

As it is COSATU has already come out to blame white players for the poor performance. Saying they are deliberately playing bad and so conspiring to try get Coetzee removed.

So unfortunately we have to remind ourselves that, that beast still rears its ugly head. I also think its one of the main reasons we've been playing so poorly.

The politics, ever since before the WC, have just proved absolutely poisonous for the whole rugby environment in SA and its manifested itself in many ways for the Boks.
