Pucker up and kiss the ring

History will show that I, like a number of others, got the call on Frans Steyn wrong this past weekend.

I’m not going to take up paragraphs justifying my views on this; rather, I’ll say that in the absence of whatever “additional video footage” was shown at the hearing and without Gerrie Swart present to convince me otherwise, I saw the spear tackle (or is that now “alleged spear tackle” since it now, I guess never happened) pretty much the same way that the match officials did.

For what it’s worth, I’m pleased that the Sharks depth will not be reduced any further through a suspension for Steyn. As a senior player and member of the leadership group, now is exactly the time that we need him to step up show the benefit of his experience. Here’s hoping that when Frans leaves the field smiling this week, it’s because he’s played a big part in a big win over the Force.
