Are the ACC doing any matches?

Only at a pub in Auckland. They're not allowed near the RWC apparently.

Uh... The springbok lifters just lost control of their man, Whitelock did nothing wrong as far as I could see

Yeah that was a loving nightmare call, as was the non-yellow earlier in the match. French refs gonna French ref.

Is whoever snapped Savea's head back in that tackle in the first 15 being cited?

On the one hand, yes it is. On the other hand, NZ fans in this very thread were moaning piteously about the missed penalty try in the same game.

We're NZers. Whining is what we do. In saying that, one was a professional foul to stop a certain try, one was a careless go at a player who was in an infringing position. And compared to one on the hits on Savea, it wasn't much.

This is entirely incorrect, a player has no right to interfere with any other player if they feel they are not in the right place. All Kieran is doing is preventing the SA player from getting into the right place. It's interference, tackling a player of the the ball or just plain trying to take his head off. Clear yellow at least. You cannot 'protect the active play' by tackling players not involved in it. If Du Toit illegally interfered with the active play it's for the referee to judge, not some rando just clothes lining him.

Oh yeah. I'll clarify my whinge with saying that Kieran was definitely in the wrong. Totally did deserve a yellow.

That wasn't so much a tackle as it was a shoulder straight into him.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought Farrell had knocked it on and was basically waiting for the whistle after regathering which makes it even more of a dog shot.

Oh I was talking about a Tongan dive for the corner.

This also became a topic of conversation in the local Japan thread, so fairly unsurprising to see the newspapers wake up after the stunner in Shizuoka

Why can't every country's fans be so joyous and respectful? It's pretty hard to not root for both the team and the fans for being kick rear end.

What exactly was it for? The TMO described it as a shoulder charge I think, but then the ref seemed to be chatting about a late tackle (which seemed to harsh)

Both the ref and TMO said it was not high and arms were in the tackle so the penalty was entirely for being late.

That looks nasty - but his face shouldn't be there. If he tackles incorrectly it's hardly the attacking player's fault.

Also don't do that poo poo. That just looks bad for the game as a whole if you keep packing down a scrum and then muscle over the minnows from 10 out.
