    I see the ref is a relatively new Frenchman called Mathieu Raynal.
    Anyone here know anything about him?

    Seems very good from the few euro games I saw him ref. Not surprised he's being pushed to international so quickly.

    I follow Racing and in our win over Montpellier in the last round of Top14 I found myself thinking that one of the standout aspects of the match was how on top of things the ref was and looked his name up. Not surprising to see him do test duty at all. And it was a pressure game. He gave one yellow to Racing which I felt was maybe a ta harsh but for the rest of it perfect. If he can bring that level to test rugby he'll be a welcome inclusion IMO.

    So not too bothered about the result of this now that the U20's have finally gotten that Silver Back Gorilla off our back.

    It's a rugby match, if it were a fight there would only be one winner and it ain't the boks.

    The home team always changes their jerseys if they're similar in Rugby.

    God Etzebeth is brainless there going off his feet at that ruck. Noticed he cost SA a couple of costly penalties going off his feet in the quarters and semis of the RWC. He's clearly not learnt.
