    On first look during the game i have to say i though it was not a big deal, "we're not playing for tiddlywinks here!” kind of thing but on second viewing it looks more deliberate

    Bakkies wouldn't have put such a little knee in Richies face, and tickled him. He would've knocked him out. And then headbutted him :p

    You can see him look down to make sure he's going to hit his head on the way up before pretending that it was an accident
    Cheap shot, no question about it

    as in if Cooper had done it to Bakkies?

    Bakkies wouldn't have done anything as the player is in a position to defend himself - even if it's only Quade Cooper.
    Bakkies is a coward and a thug and only puts in the cheap shots when he knows nothing will happen to him

    Cheap shot. No question about it. Has he been cited? Hope so, really does deserve a ban.

    i dont think we're talking about the same bakkies...at all. and i didnt mean "as in if Cooper had done it to Bakkies?" i meant that if it was bakkies who did that to another player then he would have been banned for 47 years, which is also why i highlighted "nothing".

    btw why dont you go say hes a coward to his face......;)

    Bakkies definitely wouldn't have gotten away with that, he might have been given a full year ban... And if Cooper had done that to Bakkies, anybody thinking that Bakkies wouldn't had done nothing in retaliation is a fool.

    Off topic- Your signature Nicolaas of Bismark looks like he belongs on the set of Twilight or something

    Anyone here old enough to remember Richard Loe? He had to eye gouge in the NPC before the NZRFU cared. Love the ANZAC cousins but they struggle with objectivity on occasions.

    Mate, he's a nasty *******, always was.

    I'm old enough to remember that NPC match. The victim was Greg Cooper (brother of Matthew Cooper)

    I also remember what Loe did to Paul Carozza.
