It was clumsy, sure, but it definitely doesn't deserve a ban.

Yeah it does. Totally intentional, aims his knee at du Preez's kidneys and follows through. Citation and short ban well deserved, and couldn't give a sh¡t – would almost congratulate Shaw if it had been another player, but du Preez is a class act who doesn't tend to get involved with off the ball nonsense. That said, he's their best player, and I doubt there'll be any permanent damage, so probably worth doing. That's the game the Boks have been playing against the Lions, and that's what they're finally getting back.

Swings and roundabouts on both sides really. The boks have been playing dirty so they got some back.
