I'm going to say this was really well dealt with by the ref and TMO. It's nice to see refs dealing with things well for a change.

I'm aware though that I may be a little hypocritical in that synopsis. I've been known to complain bitterly about blocking and slow chasing. And that is what caused Du Plessis to kick off.

Look closely at Weeks, he's running back, and then takes a slight angle across Du Plessis path.

It's damn annoying, but can we really stamp this out? I wish we could, but I doubt if it's possible.

Whilst I share Du Plessis frustration at what IMO is simply a mild form of cheating, there can be no justification for lashing out and he was rightly yellowed.

Weeks landed a few beauts there you have to admit.

Solid refereeing, followed the letter of the law and totally correct and justified. It's a shame more discussions about good officiating doesn't get much attention.
