Blowing the Whistle: What the Dickinson?

2008-07-11 00:00

What a weekend of controversy in all the main matches. It all started on Saturday morning, when Stuart Dickinson (Australia) claimed to be unsighted for the blatant and disgusting spear tackle on the Springbok skipper, John Smit, by Brad Thorn.

What absolute rubbish! It is extremely frustrating watching someone knowingly sidestep the obvious. Thorn should have been carded and in my opinion he would be deemed lucky if he only received a yellow card. To make matters worse, Thorn got cited for the incident and was later found guilty of conduct unbecoming and given a one-week ban. That’s an even greater farce by the Sanzar judicial system. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
