      Its called inconsistency.. Digby Ioane got 5 week ban he gets 2? Jannie Du Plessis strikes a guy in the face and gets of the field yellow card. This is not even nearly as bad as on the field inconsistency. As soon as they get this one aspect right, rugby will become so much better and less people will blame the ref.
