Following this weekend’s round of Autumn International matches, two players have been cited by independent IRB Citing Commissioners.

The South African lock forward Etzebeth, was cited by Alan Mansell of England for contact with the eye(s) or eye area under Law 10.4 (m) on Scotland No 10, Greig Laidlaw, after 14 minutes of the second half of the match at Murrayfield on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Juan Figallo, Argentina’s prop forward, was cited by Mike Rafter of England for striking with the head (Law 10.4 (a)) on French Captain Pascal Pape at the end of the first half of the match in Lille on Saturday.

Under IRB Regulation 17, hearings for both players will be held on Tuesday (Etzebeth) and Wednesday (Figallo) this week before independent IRB-appointed Judicial Officers.

    Of course you have, according to you guys he is limited… and Puma has gone further than that, the coach is called an idiot…

    You guys forget, conveniently you all wanted to lynch Plum after 10 games into Super Rugby in 2012, having lost 5 games already…

    There are none as blind as those who don’t want to see.

    you can gameplan (or lack thereof)
    his structures (the ones he want to impliment throughout the age groups) and what its all about
    etc etc etc

    Ja, last time I right punched my opposing hooker in a koshuis game 20 years ago we both went to stand behind the poles for 10 minutes, and then got back into it.

    None of this citing bullshit.

    I see Victor has been appointed to the Bulls coaching panel as forwards coach.

    Thank goodness we won’t have to sit through his barely coherent utterances in the studio any more.

    I mean I’m a fan and he has an amazing amount of experience, but he cannot commentate to save his life.

    He’s not the only one mind you.

    Boks call up JC Van Rensburg. For injured CJ. Just read on Sports24

    Feel pleased for him, should have been there in the first place, even before Heinke.

    Any news yet on the findings in the Eben Etzebeth Judicial Hearing?

    It was supposed to be held today.

  • 172

    171 @ grootblousmile:
    No have read nothing yet. No news is good news though. He could be back from the hearing and in training right now. Think they will tell us later today. We two hours ahead of them remember.

    They say a dog is man’s best friend. But I don’t even have enemies that would stare directly into my eyes whilst taking a shit on my carpet.

  • 174

    I am not sure i uinderstand the calling up of JC now?? you have 5 props fit and ready there, 1 match to play???

    He wont have time to really train with the team, so whats the point??

    Dont get me wrong, he should have been selected from the start and not CJ, but this does not make sense.

    There is a thread on this bro.

    I think it is because Steenkamp might be carrying a injury.

    Bulls flyhalf Lionel Cronjé has been released from his contact and will join the Lions. The deal has been worked out in such a way that Cronjé can be recalled to the Bulls Super Rugby squad should the need arise.

    176 @ Sharks_forever:
    Thats not the best of news Sharkie, sounds like there were such high hopes for Lionel just don’t know what went wrong, why he never got the chance to establish himself with us, he was meant to be a good quality player.
