Jannie was in the wrong

Jannie du Plessis (Gallo)

Watch an amazing try-saving tackle from the Blues' Siale Piutau ruled as a knock back and the Lions awarded a try.

if Jannie du Plessis had a springbok jersey on and talked like that to a ref, I would still be upset even if I am a springbok supporter. To me t showed bias from the ref not taking that situation in to control.

George Gregan was a master and manipulating the ref, I never heard him say something along those lines. I remremember balie Swart giving Andre Watson a red card, what happened to him after that??? not acceptable in my view. If the ref was a non SA ref, Jannie would not have actaed like he did.

Besides the Jannie issue, I think the sharks played well in the first 40 and were outplayed in the 2nd 40. Just like the Lions, the Lions were more lucky to win , the sharks did well to close out the game, it showed that they are a class outfit.
