My blood is green! I love all sport, but rugby is my passion.
I support any South African team, and the Springboks and Bulls are my favourites.
I use to be a physio for elite sporting teams, which gave me a great insight into the psychology, mindset and behaviour of top sports stars.
I have played top level hockey, and now my own exercise is focused on long distance running.

    Well Sanjay, how are you? Just wanted to get oyur thoughts on the Ireland SA game. As you can imagine I was very pleased with the victory and performance. I thought the main blemish for us was the scrum but we contested the lineout and breakdown superbly. Sexton was outstanding. How did Brian O drscoll not get the IRB world player? Astonishing. Anyway, look forward to hearing from you on this...

    hey mate
    wrote on a problem in our lives as well as sports. I am putting it here, not because I want an AOTD or anything but just because I think this is the case

    You know I'm inclined to agree the punishment was out of proportion to the incident but what I will say is if this stops this type of carry on in the future, in the long run rugby will benefit more, and I guess that's what the people who handed down the punishments we're thinking.

    Thats said there are graver offences in rugby, like gouging, drug taking or even spear tackling that we have not quit seen the back of yet.

    Yes O'Driscoll plays for Leinster but relenquished captaincy last year. There was talk of him leaving for France but happily he has stayed. Top, Top player in my opinion and a pleasure to see himplaying for us.

    Lol, I think me and you are very similar. In rugby I want to see moe tries and in football you want to see more goals!

    Ha-Ha, they'e tried it before at lower levels and lets just say the game's turn into a bit of a mess!

    Hitting a football up to somebody standing beside a goalpost is far easier in footbal than hitting a ball in hockey from your own half, it takes genuine skill in that game.

    The pitches are much bigger in football, marking would be a nightmare. And I'd imagine professional teams would commit even more people to defense if it happened making the game unbearable to watch.

    As for the uncontested scrums, I think teams were pulling off their guys 'injured' if they felt they were losing out at the scrum.

    Clearly something had t be done.

    You may have heard of similar shenenagins recently concerning Harlequins. While playing in the European cub, they put a blood capsule in someones mouth, pretended it was a blood injury and sent back on their kicker.

    What's more-they were playing my team Leinster at the time ( we scrapped out a win en route to winning the cup!)

    They press are up in arms about it here. They really think its the end of days for rugby, just reading some things.

    What do you think? Are incidents like "bloodgate" common in SA? What did you think of the punishments handed down?
