@wilhelmodendaal9765

Did anyone notice James Small helping him off the field in the end ?

@celticwarrior1365

Iam a proud Welshman but if any player deserved to succumb to a knuckle sandwich from a Bok, the accolade would undoubtedly go to Derwyn Jones of Cardiff!

@ivanmynhardt

hahahahaha, my fck I laughed so hard here. cheers

@skyelark155

Hilarious

@TheProtea09

When you Lions come out to South Africa you leave your skirts at home!!!

@GrandslamTim1

can't wait for the lions to slam the boks! no doubt when things arent going the boks way they'll start their underhand tactics as usual.

@alanjackson2712

I wonder if Berger will be giving a masterclass in gouging 🤔

@wikusherbst5834

The Leon Schuster metermaid prank on Kobus was hilarious😂😂😂

@cocricklewood4441

What else do you expect? He wasn't any use for anything else, he couldn't even jump to touch the cross bar or lineout work

@alyndavies

Kobus Wiese pretty much admitted he flattened him to avoid losing all the lineouts... It had nothing to do with Derwyn binding him in the maul. Derwyn is 6'10 and had been owning the lineouts since he started playing for Wales and they took him out of the game. This type of incident used to be fairly common on a rugby field back in those days.
