I could also have made the more simple point that this is just not how rugby people should behave. On the field, from players haranguing referee's, throwing their arms around and bellowing at him (look at the stills of the incident in question and the Aussie blindside's primieval rage). To the fans whisting kickers and now apparently throwing bottles at the officials. The spirit of the game is too precious for the RFU not to begin addressing some of these concerns. A game is what it is. Just a game.
has one shred of evidence been found to support the this bottle throwing claim?
Joubert was in the middle of the pitch when he blew up & turned tail so it can't have been aimed at him unless someone in the stands had
a bottle rocket.
will we ever find out why joubert headed for the exits in such a manner. the Scotland players stayed and shook hands
with the Australians despite no doubt wanting to just get off the pitch asap. surely the ref legging it did the greatest damage
to "the spirit of the game"

wasn't allowed to use video evidence apparently.
