#3. Stuart Hogg alleged biting of Willie le Roux
The footage does show Hogg’s mouth seemingly near le Roux’s arm, while the Boks star reacts in fury afterwards. The fullback has since released a statement, denying any wrongdoing.
“Following speculation that has surfaced online, I would like to categorically deny any foul play in last night’s game,” Hogg said in a statement. “I would never bite an opponent and I am annoyed and upset by this unsubstantiated accusation. I’ve always been proud of playing rugby in the spirit of the game. Respect to the Springboks for their deserved win yesterday,” said Hogg.
