    Eh, out of all of the teams I support, I want SA to win the least, play dirty, I hate them.

    That's what makes them good I reckon. A bunch of hard-nosed bastards who never take a backwards step, I admire that. Admittedly when it turns into thuggery I'm not so keen. The first half against the All Blacks in one of the Tri Nations games was the most dominant forward display I have ever seen in my life, great to see.

    After the way england played USA, Tonga is likely to beat engalnd. think samoa real genuine chance of beating engleand, particularly if they play like they did in the first half vs Sa, with a ref thats fair to them. stamina or not, if samoa can rattle england like they did SA (plenty of captain cooks and bad passes) they will win....or little jonny will win due to refs whistle.

    Haha, you'd have thought after 4 years, the bitterness might've worn off.

    Schalke Burger being cited for his misdemeanour against Samoa so he might miss the England game. That would be rather nice if it came true.

    Juan Smith's actions were far more 'serious' yet he hasn't been cited. Burger's bad rep has done him no favours, challenge was pretty nasty but Schalk could realistically argue that Samoan player contributed to its nastiness by ducking under. If Burger does miss out, Wikus van Heerden of the Bulls will likely be his replacement.

    Burger slapped with 4-match ban:

    I think Burger tackled some bloke whilst he was in the air.

    Kick from the half way line, guy goes up to catch it, catches it, Burger comes flying in and sort of punches him in his late effort to intercept the ball.

    Smith threw a punch off the ball. But the worst incident all game which didn't raise an eyebrow was Brian Lima, who knocked himself stone cold out after trying to dump André Pretorius on his head.

    Didn't look that way to me, just looked as though Lima was trying to bear-hug him.

    Burger's ban has been reduced after an appeal...4 match ban reduced to just 2 games

    according to the BBC....
    And I recall my fall from grace, another time another place..
