5 talking points: Super Rugby Week 1

Sport24’s Herman Mostert highlights FIVE talking points after Round 1 of the 2018 Super Rugby competition:

Discipline issues at Newlands

It was no surprise when the season’s first yellow card went to a Jaguares player – fullback Joaquin Tuculet was sent to the sin-bin in the 26th minute of his side’s clash against the Stormers at Newlands.

The Argentine side’s discipline has left much to be desired since their introduction into the tournament in 2016 and the happenings at Newlands on Saturday suggested that not much will change this season.

The Stormers were themselves guilty of giving away silly penalties and hooker Ramone Samuels’ 64th minute yellow [...]

Had Kohli fallen cheaply, India would have been rolled for less than 200 and South Africa would be overwhelming favourites to win in Pretoria and claim an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

Instead, Kohli proved his class and justified his status as one of the best batsmen on the planet – inside or outside of India – as South Africa’s bowlers had no answer to his [...]

Boks ‘better’ but only because bar set too low…

The All Blacks are the rugby union benchmark and if the Springboks have any aspirations of once again reaching the top echelons of world rugby, it’s impossible for coach Allister Coetzee to remain at the helm.

It’s a harsh statement, but one that needs to be made.

The Springbok coach was in defiant mode on Monday when he arrived back in South Africa after the team’s year-end European tour.

He was quick to point out that the Boks had won 50% of their matches on tour, having returned winless at the same stage last year.

The Boks finished the 2017 season with seven wins, four losses and two draws.

That translates to a 54% win-percentage and is no doubt [...]
