If Italy was just half as good as the Pumas I would be a happy man.

thought the Ref was diabolical - imo the 'no-arms tackle' on Mapimpi should have lead to a yellow card (at least) and a penalty try; the less said about the Faf 'slap', the better - some people are of the opinion that the Aussie should have been given the yellow card (along with the Oscar for acting)

the ref, the ref?!
how can it be a no arms tackle if mapimpi jumped up into the air to try and score

Imo .... whether Mapimpi jumped or not - fact remains the guy did not use his arms in the tackle - last time I checked, this was deemed a yellow-card offence :huh:

And I have not even mentioned the scrum penalty when the Aussie clearly scrummed inwards - yet the ref deemed we had to be penalized

And I said at the start of my post - the 'Boks made some silly mistakes - not taking the ball from the kick-off - and how Dwebe can be the 3rd best hooker in the country I don't know

All I'm saying is that the ref contributed to the loss - who knows what would have happened in the second half if the 2 Aussies got yellow cards, and not Faf - who admittedly did slap the guy in the face - so a penalty would have been fair imo - definitely not a yellow card when compared to the 'no-arms tackle'

always blaming the ref. - it's just not on

this is not a freak result - every year we go to AUS and we are favorites and result always the same

AND they mock us - "those guys are so big and so physical"

@fingers - Refs are human - they make mistakes - but let's just agree to disagree B)

World Rugby give law clarification on controversial hurdle try
It was highlight reel stuff when Chiefs No 8 Pita Gus Sowakula hurdled Highlanders scrum-half Aaron Smith on the way to an athletic try. But in the wake of the Chiefs’ win in the opening round of Super Rugby Pacific, many questioned if referee Paul Williams was right to let the score stand.
Well today, World Rugby have waded in to clarify that leaping over opponents is illegal.
After being asked for this stance on this incident by New Zealand Rugby, the global body replied: “We agree – jumping to hurdle a potential tackler is dangerous play, as is the act of a ball carrier jumping into a tackle. Even if no contact is made, we believe this act is in clear contravention of law 9.11, and runs contrary to the game-wide focus on player welfare.
In this specific case the sanction should be a PK (penalty kick) against the ball carrier.”

So the ball carrier should take the tackle rather than avoid it...even if it is a no arms "tackle" / shoulder charge (arms behind body) which all the officials overlook as home player was involved in the illegality??!!

Boks need to take their points early in the game as the Aussies tend to get stronger as the match wears on. I think that the Boks will win as it’s a good call to drop de Klerk and start with the best front three. Also giving Etsebeth a break. Mostart will do his thing. Vermeulen on the bench gives them the last 30 with him on as he can’t last 60 anymore. Boks to win by 12

Hopefully Argentina turn up again and hand the ABs another loss.

there is that LAW in the rugby rules, and it seams very few know about it
I don't see a shoulder charge - others disagree
I don't watch post rugby video analysis - what's the point? (and I especially won't from this bloke - he is clueless)
the fact that he was not cited after the match tells me something

do rugby scribes that support other teams also make these "blame it on the ref" videos after a loss?
many saffers are just plain bad losers
remember that bloke that ran onto the field (think it was in Durban) to hit the referee - must be 30-40 years ago
where else does that shit happen?
