Bismarck du Plessis stamping

Watch as Sharks hooker Bismarck du Plessis stamps on Cheetahs loose forward Lappies Labuschagné.

How can Advocate André Oosthuizen reserve his judgment for another day when he knew exactly what his finding would be.

Bismarck got a yellow based on the findings of the match referee and was cited for further punishment. Based on the video evidence, just like Michael Rhodes, I don’t think the intent is to injure an opposing player but nevertheless Michael got a week and Bismarck gets no further punishment. That smacks of being biased and clearly not the same law being applied.

All rugby loving people should get a petition to get these type of offences to be put through a panel and not just an individual who has clearly been pressurized for his decision.

Tired of bullshit.
