Port Elizabeth - Proteas coach Ottis Gibson has encouraged everybody to put their focus back on the cricket after this week's David Warner v Quinton de Kock drama.
Sunday's off-field altercation between the pair saw both players fined, but the aftermath that followed the incident has seen this series hot up as it moves to Port Elizabeth for the second Test.
South Africa's rivalry with Australia has always been intense, with sledging on the field and comments off of it generally fuelling that fire.
But Gibson, speaking about the incident on Wednesday, said there was a difference between being aggressive on the field and verbally attacking the batsmen.
"I'm happy with aggression being shown on the field if it's coming from a fast bowler and he's bowling bouncers," Gibson said.
"To me, that's aggression.
"When everybody else is chirping or sledging the batter as he's trying to bat, I'm not sure that's aggression in my book.
"That's how I grew up playing the game in the Caribbean. Obviously things change, but when everybody around you is chirping, I don't know if that's aggression."
The second Test starts on Friday at 10:00.
