Footage: Handre Pollard makes vile comment to AR
New found footage – that the Boks high command don’t want you to see – catches Handre Pollard shouting obscenities at an official at Nelspruit on Saturday.
The Bokke may have won but it didn’t stop them from acting like total grubs it seems.
The All Blacks crumbled at scrum time like a single mum at a toy store and the referee awarded a penalty to the Jerry Spring-er-boks.
Brave star Pollard kicks to touch and presumably felt he was entitled to the lineout much closer to the All Blacks line.
That’s when things turned sour and fast. Pollard can be seen demonstrating with his hands and swearing in the direction of the official.
Of course Boks fans will downplay this moment but Rugby Onslaught lipreaders have translated what Pollard said: ‘Ah f*** off mate! F***ing poes’.
Disgraceful. This barrage makes Welsh whiner Dan Biggar look like a nana from the 1970s by comparison.
As usual, Siya Kolisi completely ignored the incident in the past match press conference and preferred to gloat about the performance instead – which in fairness was a record-breaking win over New Zealand in the opening Test of the Castle Lager Rugby Championship at the Mbombela Stadium.
“The way they turn up with everything that’s going on in our country. People who can still afford it, still come along and still full up the stadium for us and it means the world to us as a team.
“Running out and hearing people screaming like that it drives us as a team. That’s what Jacques [Nienaber] always reminds us: ‘it’s not about me’. If I make a mistake, I must keep on going because it’s about the people who are coming each and every time to watch us play.
“I hope we made them proud today, because they definitely got us going from the anthem onwards.”
