    It is long overdue. Him and his brother is rugby gansters. Jannie must work @ his scrumming and leave the off the ball stuff.

    For a medical doctor this guy is a bit doff!!! How many more foul play incidents must the Sharks put up with from the Du Plessis brothers?

    I'm a Bulls supporter but I support all SA teams. During the replay on Saturday I immediately thought he would be sighted for a head butt.... he seems to have the tendency to run into rucks with his head into players - intentionally or not - I'm afraid with the SANZAR judicial system's history, he has little chance of getting cleared.

    If one had to select a World Stupid Rugby 15 there would have to be two certainties for the team, Jannie Du Plessis and Quade Cooper. The number of childlike, idiotic transgressions perpetrated by these two objects who profess to being professional sportsmen is amazing. The respective team management should set a precedent and suspend and fine such players for each and every transgression.

    he plays rugby like it was played 10/20 years their anything wrong with that???? this will probably be a blessing in disguise for the sharks as they can blood new talent in Wiehan Herbst and start a now-confident Beast from the outset! i heard Mostert is recovering better then originally thought so he will provide incredible depth. I would play this team for the next game\; 1.Beast 2.Bismarck 3.Herbst 4.Sykes 5.Steenkamp 6.Botes 7.Deysel 8.Alberts 9.Kockott 10.Pienaar(what does Goode bring when he's not kicking?) 11.Pietersen 12.Swanepoel 13.Terblanche/Murray 14.Mvovo 15.Lambie

    Mr. Knock-On King must rather stay off the field. He's an absolute tool. If you can't play a clean game and catch a ball without knocking it on give up the game. You're doing yourself, the team and the country no favors.

    Add to the list Jimmy Cowan, Schalk Burger, Bakkies Botha, Bismarck du Plessis, Derick Kuun, Lauaki,That Burger idiot who used to play wing for the Cheetahs,Hilton Lobberts, JP Nel just to mention a few!

    But I put him back together I am a doctor you know!!!!!!!!!

  • Dean - 2010-04-06 14:02

    I am not a fan of the Du Plessis brothers, but I thought you had to be cited within 12 hours of the completion of the match?????????

  • Dave - 2010-04-06 14:23

    Did anyone notice the spear tackle on Brian Habana during their game against the Force. It was only shown once "in the bakcground' and as usual not shown again by the biased Australian media. Wonder if there will be a citing??

  • Far and Away - 2010-04-06 16:18

    Probably not the forum for this... All the same... i am a Bulls supporter, but how good was Jaques Botes on Saturday. Take a bow Jaques, you are the best flank not to wear a Bok Jersey!
