THERE IS NO doubt about the quality and power of the hit that JP Pietersen put in on David Denton during South Africa’s 28-0 win over Scotland on Sunday. However, the winger’s actions immediately after the tackle have seen divided reaction.
What’s your take on how Pietersen shoves Denton’s face into the turf? Is this an unacceptable lack of sportsmanship? Or is it simply a justifiable demonstration of the ‘Boks’ aggression? This week has seen lots of discussion over whether or not Ireland’s players should have reacted to the tip tackle on Peter O’Mahony, but should there have been a reaction from Denton in this case?
