Referee forced to deal with poor South African player behaviour
Referee Adam Jones had to lay down the law as the South African players misbehave appallingly in the URC.
The Sharks and Bulls were fighting for national dominance (they haven’t a hope against European teams) when the awful behaviour began.
“The one that starts it, that’s who we are going to deal with.”
Sad that it came to this. What a poor example for young children that might be watching.
David Kriel started at fullback for the Vodacom Bulls. Cell C Sharks made three changes to last week’s side, giving Gerbrandt Grobler a start in the second row with fellow lock Ruben van Heerden playing off the bench.
