Default Re: Official Rugby World CUp (and the lead up tests) Thread

So Schalk Burger gets cited for a clumsy tackle in the air - which was dealt with in the game and penalised - and banned for 4 matches, and Brian "The Chiropractor" Lima gets off scot-free - not a warning, yellow card or citing - for his no-arms, late and high tackle on Andre Pretorius. I smell a huge dumpster of rats with this IRB and its citing policy. Call me paranoid, but someone is trying a little too hard to "make an example" of Burger. Some people would appear to be trying to spoil SA's chances of making the final.
