WP to punish Sinclair?

2012-09-19 07:46

Cape Town - Western Province could dish out their own punishment to No 8 Jebb Sinclair after he emerged unscathed from a SARU disciplinary committee hearing for throwing a punch in a Currie Cup game.

Sinclair and fellow loose forward Tyrone Holmes both appeared before the SARU committee on Tuesday after receiving red cards for punching in their team's loss to the Sharks in Durban over the weekend.

Holmes was suspended for one match, while Sinclair was allowed to play in their Currie Cup clash against Griquas on Saturday.

Judicial Officer Peter Ingwersen ruled that Sinclair was severely provoked in that he was struck five times by his opponent with an open hand before he retaliated, which led to the decision to free him from further punishment.

However, according to Die Burger, Western Province will hold their own disciplinary hearing with the two players on Wednesday, where they will decide if Sinclair will be allowed to play on Saturday.

"They were tempted into doing it, but it doesn't change the fact that the punches cost us dearly," forwards coach, Matt Proudfoot, said.

"Jebb's red card happened at a critical stage. Our driving maul was working well and we were two metres from the Sharks' goal-line.

"The issue has to be brought home to the players and we have to see if we can help them to not make the same mistakes again."

WP's clash against Griquas at Newlands kicks off at 15:00 on Saturday.

    And the provoker gets off scot free. There is something wrong with this but it does not excuse what happened. If SARU is serious about cleaning up the sport they will address this problem as well. If blatant provocation is shown the instigator should get the same sanction as the person they provoked even if it is at a later stage.

      What worries me more, is that Deysel's bitch-slapping occurred right in front of the assistant ref, but he turned a blind eye. The lack of control that the ref and his assistants had on that game was shocking. The ref should have stamped his authority on the game right from the start and prevented stuff like this from happening. Instead he just kept on saying "Keep your composure" (who the hell says that to aggro rugby players?!!!) and took no further action.

      prudence.arendse - 2012-09-19 10:37

      Agree!! Jean Deysel was rather thuggish!!!

    I consider the issue dealt more punishment

  • blou.johnny - 2012-09-19 08:19

    ...there is NO excuse for punching and hooliganism on the rugby field..!! ..they both should have been suspended for at least 4 weeks...! ....rubbish...!

      eden.vanderwiel - 2012-09-19 13:43

      Blou Johnny ek wil sien wat sal jy maak as ek jou deurdie gesig klap 5 keer agtermekaar! Eks seker jy sal jouself verdedig en terug moer?

  • roy.wadhams.1 - 2012-09-19 08:42

    WP should ban him from rugby for a minimum of six games and if it happens again send him back to wherever he came from. This dirty play should be stopped from all our rugby because it does damage to the sport because other teams know they can provoke our players.

  • john.comyn.18 - 2012-09-19 08:43

    Any big mouth on this website who allows himself to be slapped 5 times without retaliating is either lying or is a coward. The Sharks have always been niggling underhanded dirty players since Mark Andrews days. If WP are going to punish Jebb it should be for not doing the job properly. Cheers have a nice day!

      shane.hayne.92 - 2012-09-19 09:23

      Sharks are not the dirty ones my friend. Let's look at it , in two weeks you have 4 players sent off the field 2 for punching in the Currie cup and one for Head butting in the Springbok game , the Yellow card in the Currie cup game was harsh but hey !!!,,,the Wp fans are as bad as there dirty players with your Boooing ,,, you should think about what your saying mate those are the facts

      prudence.arendse - 2012-09-19 09:54

      Exactly John! Jean Deysel is a THUG!!!...and he should've been red carded. Go WP....! You the BEST!

      stirrer.stirrer - 2012-09-19 10:35

      Shane, I suppose you didn't hear the air raid siren (or whatever sounded like one) going off every time WP kicked at goal? Booing happens everywhere and the goal kickers are used to it, but that siren took it to a whole new level. Shame on the Sharks supporters! It's nearly as bad as the laser lights used at Loftus.

      eden.vanderwiel - 2012-09-19 13:46

      Shane hayne go listen to the crowds at durban, loftus, Ellis park and even overseas,everyone boooos the oppisite team.. Nobody like it but dont point out just one teamfor doing something

      We just don't see enough of it in rugby anymore ... remember you would have 28 guys in a fight and the other 2 are getting treatment and unable to make the fight

  • andrew.niedermeyer.1 - 2012-09-19 09:22

      andre.terblanche.5 - 2012-09-19 09:48

      Dit is die geheim slaan 5x maar moenie gesien word nie. 11 j sonder bekers en nou verloor hulle nog die gevegte ook.

      stirrer.stirrer - 2012-09-19 10:37

      André, that says a lot about your mentality... And for your information, we won the fight. It was Deysel who went down like a tenpin. One punch - BAM!!!

      andre.terblanche.5 - 2012-09-19 14:53

      Stirrer, wou net weet so die 2 is skuldig? Agv kwota AC sal hulle niks oorkom nie.

  • geoffrey.stokker - 2012-09-19 09:37

    What a joke! A guy who played for UCT and was once on WP's bench is going to be impartial when handing out judgement on two WP players! Pull the other one!

  • shane.hayne.92 - 2012-09-19 10:05

    Eben Etsabeth gets banned for head butting , these two get nailed for punching all in the space of a few weeks , and WP Fans feel they re are being hard done by and its the Sharks players fault...... Cummon guys you guys need to change your attitude ,,,!!!! Booolands may have to transformed into a boxing arena at this rate !!!!!!! Sharks4eva

      stirrer.stirrer - 2012-09-19 10:38

      Etsebeth just "aimed", the head butt never landed. If it did, Sharpe would have gone down like Deysel.

      danny.cohen.315 - 2012-09-19 11:09

      Julle is stupid man. Deysel ken van Bolly-wood acting hahaaa, dis hoe taktiek werk julle poefter papsnoeke.........LOL

      andre.terblanche.5 - 2012-09-19 14:55

      Eben moet maar by Spies gaan leer. Of vra vir oogkrapper as hy ooit weer terug kom om hom te leer.

      Lean - 2012-09-19 15:25

    i totally agree wpru should punish him. make him wear a pink bulls jersey that's punishment enough and to make it more severe make it a number 10 pink jersey !

      andre.terblanche.5 - 2012-09-19 14:59

      Nog erger laat hom in die kwarteind speel dan voel hy wat is 12j van chockers rugby.

      paul.sdoow - 2012-09-19 15:18

      at least we make it to semi and quarters and not miss out on play offs. you can't win cups from the bottom of the log! so ya the bulls don't choke cause they can't win any games lately!
