Stuart hogg starred in an unusual episode with Willie le roux during the British & Irish Lions’ 27-9 loss to the Springboks in Cape Town.
In the 24th minute of the meeting, Cheslin kolbe dangerously tackled Conor murray in the air and was cautioned, in a game with very high temperature. At that moment, the Scottish Lions fullback makes a suspicious gesture on Le Roux’s right arm, who tried to remove it and the conflict continued.
After the game, Hogg touched on the topic and commented: “Following speculation on the internet, I wanted to categorically deny any lack of play in the match. I would never bite an opponent, I am upset by this baseless accusation. I was always proud to play rugby with the spirit of the game.”
According to the regulations, biting is considered a severe act in rugby and carries a penalty of a suspension of between 12 and 24 weeks, although the maximum could be up to 208 weeks, which would be approximately four years off the field.
