Looks Like Siya Kolisi Got Away With A Decent Headbutt

Siya Kolisi could be in hot water for an alleged headbutt

Greg Laidlaw kicked 10 points for Scotland.

The Scotland captain was left to curse missed opportunities as the Dark Blues were edged out 26-20.

'They put Tonga away last weekend and the previous week they defeated Australia, so we are preparing ourselves for the most hard Test of this tour'.

"We focused really hard and worked on all the things that didn't go right last week".

"We thought this was the right game for him, on this pitch and the way Scotland play suits him well, and he also handled it very well".

"We are disappointed we have lost but we need to put that to the side and bounce back next week and give a strong performance against Argentina".

South Africa 26 (Jesse Kriel, Handre Pollard tries; Pollard 2 con, 3 pen; Elton Jantjes pen) Scotland 20 (Peter Horne, Hamish Watson tries; Greig Laidlaw 2 conv, 2 pen).

With halftime approaching, Hamish Watson crashed over from a clever lineout move to level matters.

I love Siya Kolisi, and the story of his rise to the top has Hollywood written all over it, but that's a dirty headbutt.

After we saw Japan gallantly chuck the ball around Twickenham and give England some serious trouble earlier today, Scotland and South Africa are now hammering out a classic at Murrayfield: proof that all three teams are finding form as only prospective World Cup opponents for Ireland can.

"To beat a team that has become a real force in world rugby, a team that is on the up, in the middle of a good home run, is satisfying", Erasmus is quoted as saying.

"Having reviewed the video angles, the Citing Commissioner determined that there were mitigating factors which meant that the action did not meet the red card threshold", World Rugby said in a statement.

Nothing has since come out about the headbutt, meaning they are clearly taking no action against Kolisi.
