SHOOT: I'll remember this Currie Cup as a game about sending a player into the corner, and wrist slapping for the last 20 minutes. This is the Cheetahs against the Blue Bulls. There's supposed to be fierce rivalry. That's why the stadium is packed. So you get players pummeling each other during game time, and between plays hiking up someone's shorts of slapping someone on the head afterwards. To give the Bulls the game on a silver player denied the fans and the players a real chance to play the game. And that was the refs fault. Technically he may have been right, but he ruined a game everyone had come to watch. The Cheetahs could have been more disciplined, but if you want sterile rugby, maybe they should call it something else. Netball or something.
Du Preez’s pass to Habana looked forward, but it mattered little to the Loftus masses .
