Another good game.

At 4 minutes the Cavs spin it and and Clamp scores in the right hand corner and to me that is that team at its best. Pity they couldn't maintain it over the test series.

Why wasn't Uli Schmidt sent off for punching Whetton while Whetton was on the ground (!) and what does the ref say to him?

Regarding the Uli/Whetton incident.
The ref walked-up up to Uli and said: "I saw you puch him Uli I am going to penalize you." He then walked to the touch asking him if he saw it. The touchie said no. Naas then chipped-in saying it was just a push. The ref responded: "Naas he openly punched him. I saw it." The ref then turned to Uli saying: You are very lucky, pel".

I am not sure what he means with Uli being lucky but I suspect he means Uli is lucky not to be send off due to the fact that the tuochie couldn't confirm and/or the fact that Whetton was not seriously injured.

Yip that Geldenhuys punch from behind was a shocker. Uli punching Haden on the ground also not a great example of sportmanship.

Burger Geldenhuys and Uli Schmidt were nice chaps. Where was Kevin Skinner when you needed him? Red and yellow cards have ruined rugby.
