Frans Steyn should be cited after delivering brutal cheapshot

Ageing bad Bok Frans Steyn could face a massive SANZAAR punishment after smashing the face off Los Pumas winger Juan Imhoff.

Leaked video footage clearly shows Steyn kick a rugby ball straight into the face of Juan Imhoff.

Needless to say this could have killed Imhoff.

To start with, intention means nothing anymore, so surely Frans Steyn must face sanction for hitting the Argentine in the head. Whether he wanted to or not is irrelevant as we are regularly told by the sport’s powers.

Brave social media man – The Rugby Guy – spotted it: ‘Imagine taking a Frans Steyn kick to the face!’

Imagine indeed.

The Boks failed to score 40 points or more. They barely won the game infact and wouldn’t have had Steyn been sent off.

New Zealand made it too hard for them after beating the Wallabies, finishing with a 40-14 victory at Eden Park.

The hosts took a 17-0 lead heading into the break after a Will Jordan try and a penalty try.

Two further tries via the rolling maul helped the hosts seal the bonus point victory.

The Wallabies instantly found themselves on the back foot when Jed Holloway was yellow carded after just two minutes.

The visitors showed incredible fight to repel several attacks from the home side down a man as they looked to bounce back from their defeat in Melbourne.

Richie Mo’unga’s boot produced the lone points of the first quarter as both sides traded attacking opportunities.

With Lalakai Foketi leaving the field with a shoulder injury, Will Jordan sliced through the gap left by the centre to score the first try of the game after 22 minutes.

The All Blacks extended their lead five minutes later when a rolling maul five metres out proved unstoppable, leading to a penalty try and a yellow card to Dave Porecki.

Marika Koroibete looked to have given the Wallabies their first points of the game, however, the TMO ruled he had put a foot in touch.

A promising break late gave the hosts one last chance before the inspirational Pete Samu came up with yet another turnover to keep the margin at 17-0 heading into the break.

The All Blacks built pressure after the break and captain Sam Whitelock found his way over the line, holding on despite a great tackle from Angus Bell.

The rolling maul again paid dividends for the All Blacks with a try to Codie Taylor extending the lead.

The Wallabies found some momentum when a great offload from Pete Samu found replacement hooker Folau Fainga’a for their first points of the game.

However, another 5m lineout to the All Blacks gave them an instant response, this time via Samisoni Taukei’aho.

A late try to Jordan Petaia provided some consolation but the All Blacks proved too strong as they all but secure the Rugby Championship.
