Man, I have to say, I really don't like this Captain's Challenge thing.

Seems like teams are abusing this, just to harvest yellow cards for the most marginist of calls.

The Bulls vs. Stormers game was a prime example of that. Both teams used the captain's challenge to point out incidents where players could get yellow cards, to get an advantage on the field.

Absolutely hate this...

I agree, it is starting to feel like n petty party with some of these challenges. I like the idea behind the system but feel they need to place some kind of restriction to keep these petty challenges out.

I am excited for this weekends Bulls vs Sharks game. In a news24 article the Sharks coach mentioned that they had the most players at the Springbok camps I wonder if the bulk of the Bok team will be from the Sharks then. I guess call ups will come the way of
