Jaysus if Hogg's dive deserved a yellow then that also did from Habana, not that Habana has a history of diving Whistle

Rubbish from Owens there, clear knock on missed.

Probably because he was trying to spot himself on tv

Guys, I can only see his posts when people quote him - might be an idea to add him to your ignore lists. Bare in mind this is an individual of such integrity that he gets banned from a rugby board for racism.

Sorry, Dodger. Won't be replying to him on this thread again anyway. I'm enjoying a game of rugby.

You clearly don't know what Xenophobic means.

This thread should also be about the officiating. Which is deplorable.

Really wish we had our first XV out there! Could have been winning this.

Still hoping for at least a losing bonus point

This may be seen as a pretty much second XV for Scotland but they have done reasonably well in my opinion. Highlights their desperation to get to the quarters than win the match but even more glaringly, it highlights SA's poor game right now. Cant see them getting past the 1/4 finals.

It depends on what Wales, England or Australia have left after their pool to be honest. Their all looking bashed up.

Very powerful performance from SA - well worth the game.

Too many mistakes from Scotland and we simply can't allow teams to get so far ahead of us and hope we can claw it back - we need to play from minute 1

They've been pushing him as a star player for them all tournament. Although as a trade off for the tournament actually being on tv it's not too bad.

Scotland's scrum has gone well in this game and Hogg's acting but very little anything else they must pick their best team for every game.

Don't buy the 2nd XV nonsense, arguably not our strongest available team but very far from being a 2nd XV. South Africa have physically blown us away and I don't believe making a few changes to our starting lineup would've altered that fact.

Ultimately South Africa were just far too physical and we couldn't live with, a deserved victory and well done to them.

Think that he called it right myself, he got into a bad position accidently but JP could have brought him down better. Good call.

Doesn't matter if it's accidental. Russell's taking out of the ireland player in the 6 nations was accidental but still got sin binned. Most tip tackles are accidents and not malicious but all can be extremely dangerous. Clear yellow.

Why is it do I always see Scottish players congratulating each other and smiling when they have lost a game and the opposition has more than doubled their points score?

Is it a culture thing or do they simply accept defeat so easily? Shocked

No the Scottish player put his hand on the floor, and twisted his body so he could make the ball available, look at it again. Nigel got that call right.
