Forward as hell, the only question was whether it was so far forward that Quantum theory made it backwards. I assume that’s what the TMO was checking

Looks nasty but not intentional IMO. Yellow is the right call.

My rugby club has so many Kiwis I don’t bother explaining the translations between 1st 5/fly-half; 2nd 5/inside centre; centre/outside centre. For years I’ve just got in the habit of talking in numbers, 10 12 and 13

I’ve always felt that’s more than just a different name for the same position though. It demonstrates a different mentality towards the positions.

I hear you... but I do like these little localised idiosyncrasies. I used to like the old English club jerseys with letters on the back rather than numbers as an example.

I feel like penalty’s enough for one of those
Nah, it was very reckless even if not intentional. If Banks had been lower I’d agree, but he wasn’t really that far down.

PSDT is properly class. Jantjies looking great on debut as well. SA have a wealth of quality 9s at the moment.

Hundred percent agree with this, I’ve always thought the same

As strange as it seems... the Ozzie’s could have been high and dry here, if not for needless forward passes, fumbled pick ups etc.

I think it was harder than it looked, took a wicked late bounce.

Not to say he couldn’t have handled it better

Maybe but this is test match rugby can’t miss those sort of chances.

Wallabies have blown two try scoring opps because of lack of accuracy.

Could’ve blown the try as well because the last pass was a bit off

HJH should not be playing at this level.

Lovely to see Franc Steyn back... I was a huge fan back in the day.
