Crusaders to a draw. However, Super Rugby’s talking point of the week would surely be the fact that captain Siya Kolisi opted for a penalty kick at goal, in the final moments of the game, ensuring them a draw, which at this stage of the competitio­n would be of little significan­ce, (other than hoping for some other results going their way), instead of going for the win, and then, afterwards, still had the audacity of questionin­g (arguing) the ref’s ruling of “game over”, which was explained to Kolisi in full beforehand. Considerin­g the known fact that refs hardly ever change their decisions, once it’s made, (apologise if they’re wrong, yes, but not easily changed), Kolisi’s actions were foolhardy, to say the least. But considerin­g the fact that in top flight rugby, all available points must be taken first and foremost, without considerin­g the ifs and buts, spare a thought for Kolisi, as he surely was firmly stuck between a rock and a hard place. (With success, or failure, going forward in Super Rugby 2019, seemingly hinging on this descision). It is decisions such as these, in the heat of the moment with time running out, that distinguis­h between good and great captains. Not for the faintheart­ed. Did Kolisi make the right decision? We’ll probably never know, but what we do know for sure, is that Kolisi will be (should be) all the better for this little epic scenario. A timely experience, on the brink of RWC 2019.

This mindboggli­ng scenario just goes to prove the extreme hipocrisy between the various fields of society, (especially sports), in trying to contain hate speech, for instance: high-profile politician­s, (and others), may go around freely advocating similiar messages, as well as obscenetie­s, such as the killing of white people, etc. all in the name of so-called “freedom of speech”. Without condoning Folau’s sentiments, it seems that high-profile sports people, (espesciall­y rugby), are under a very tight, (unfair) reign, rememberin­g the catchphras­e slogan: “bringing the game into disrepute”. If only Julius Malema and Andile Mngxitama were Springbok rugby players.
