Wilhelm Steenkamp suspended for two weeks for head charge on Butch James

What does James expect, everyone knows it's tough in amongst the forwards at rucks & mauls .............. keep safe = stay out :)

I think the only person that comes out of this with credit is Japhta.

Personally I always enjoy seeing tiny ref's talking to huge players, it emphasises why the referee needs to be 100% supported by authorities to discourage all intimidation of officials.

Although seeing Butch James on the receiving end is kinda poetic !

Butch James suspended for four weeks for high tackle on Jurgen Visser


Law 10.e applies here
Sanction: Penalty Kick

In this case there wasn't an injured player, and the referee was playing advantage [which was duly taken] IMO the post match ban is unwarranted. The referee assessed the situation & could of cautioned or YC or RC , he chose neither - so that should be the end of it.

Yes, Perhaps Dr Robson was showing him how to clear the tackle area quickly, just in case Horwill's boots come 'unbalancing' towards him again !!!

Wallaby skipper James Horwill cleared and free to play in deciding Lions Test

zzzzzzzzzzzzz

Every player who now stamps on the face of another will plead the Horwill defence,

I didn't know his head was there, & I was unbalanced by something ......... prove these statements wrong !

I wonder how many seriously injured players will look back on this 'landmark' case & curse !!
