It seems to me that South African’s are very good at stoking the fire when it comes to alleged controversy. After the ball-tampering-that-wasn’t affair was officially closed by the ICC, AB De Villiers has come out and called Stuart Broad ‘a bit naughty’. A little late and unnecessary to be commenting on this you would have thought….

During the Ireland South Africa rugby match at Croke Park in November there were reports coming from the Bok camp that they’re were at least 3 instances of foul play including an eye gouging accusation against Jamie Heaslip. None of these were later substantiated or officially reported to the citing officer and so again proved groundless.

Whereas I have infinitely more respect for Mickey Arthur over PDV it seems to be a common trait that accusations fly unofficially before being withdrawn. The problem is that the damage is then done and the proverbial mountain is made out of a non-existent molehill.
