12 months is a bit harsh for a bit of ball tampering that didn't even rough up the ball or influence a result.
It's for more than that though surely. Smith and Bancroft copped the usual ban from the ICC.

All 3 player breached the CA Code of Conduct (which may have set penalties attached).
Created a negative PR disaster for CA.
Ignored the directive from CA after the incident with De Kock for its players to play fair and be well behaved.
Lastly weakened the hand of CA in TV right negotiations.

This goes beyond their actions and extends to the damage they've caused to CA.

I wonder if they'll head to France like Hird did during his 12 month ban, they might be able to borrow his chateau.

Warner doesn't really give off the Jobe barista vibe. Probably couldn't even operate a French press :$

THat's the hard part.

It is not difficult to find AFL players who are dumb bogans, or objectionable human beings, or even self indulgent ******s who put their "natural instincts" ahead of the team result.

Having all three at once, in spades, is a tough combination.
