• Referee Rankings & Statistics after the Quarter Finals

    Here are the current Referee Rankings after the Qtr Final games:

    You'll see on the table the top and bottom scores in each area have been indicated, the top scores have been made bold and the bottom scores underlined.

    According to our Biased table (where supporters of the teams playing are included) we see a strange anomaly.

    We have 2 overall Columns, One is what the member rated the referee as overall, and the other is what the overall rating should have been , taking all the other ratings into consideration. We obviously rank in the table off the calculated total because this gives a much clearer picture.

    But, The calculated figure puts Roman Poite on top of the table, 0.1 points in front of Craig Joubert, but our membership has rated Criag Joubert's overall performances to be better than Roman Poite's, by 0.03.

    In fact in all scores accept scrums Craig and Roman are quite close. However when it comes to scrums Roman is a whopping 1.25 points ahead of his nearest referee.

    Craig also has the honour of being the only referee to have a rating of 10. His Fitness has been ranked as 10/10 by everyone that has rated his games. A great achievement.

    You'll also see that after the game on Sunday Bryce Lawrence has hit the bottom again, on both tables.

    If, as is being reported, the final will be refereed by one of the Semi-Final Referees, and Craig Joubert takes the honour, he will have made his own little piece of history.

    Craig will have become the first referee to have ever refereed a game at every stage in the World Cup.

    We shall see how he goes!


    Here you will see the total and average statistics for the referees and their games, in an easy to compare format, the referees are listed in alphabetical order.

    Can you see anything interesting in them?

    England V Australia

    Thread Starter: Pegleg

    Well half time 3-17 So far so good for Wales' interests. Nothing against England but knowing the last game was a little less important would ease the nerves.

    Thread Starter: max_b

    I'm not a referee, just an ex-amateur player and ex-fan, but I wanted to make a point about the effect that the poor administration of Rugby Union has had on this fan. 10 years ago, Brian O'Driscoll was spear tackled off the ball by two New Zealand players in what, looking at the video evidence at...

    Players going past the ball at breakdown

    Thread Starter: Gracie

    Is this really allowed? Watching this WC I'm struck by the way the southern hemisphere teams in particular go past the ball at the breakdown. In part this is the tactic of flopping over the breakdown to stop the opposition competing, but all too often it involves running round in front of the...

    Tackling the support player.

    Thread Starter: Balones

    A couple of scenarios:- 1.) A ball carrier has a player latched onto him to provide extra weight. A tackler comes across and ploughs into both players and brings them both to ground. He makes contact with the support player first. 2.) As above but the tackler tackles the 'latch' and it is the...

    The umpire

    Has Nigel made a mistake?

    Thread Starter: The umpire

    Scotland v SA today. Pieterson turns the Scotland player upside down and lets him land on his head. TMO eventually talks Nigel into a penalty, just a penalty, when it looks to fit all the requirements of a straight red. Sam Warburton must be shaking his head in disbelief. Thoughts?
