• 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?

    I have a question and hopefully I can explain it without the video, White have a Line-out and start a Maul, green decide to collapse the maul-- referee calls penalty advantage.

    this is interesting from Eric Cantona -- Is there anything in it? I see some correlation between the way that Eddie Jones is avoiding the two week lock-ins at Pennyhill park. Of course football is different from rugby, there is more set piece and moves to practice, more calls to...

    22 drop?

    Thread Starter: bellnier

    Attacking White kicks ball and it bounces deep into the try zone. Black player elects to play the ball, panics, and kicks the ball forward. Charging White player, while in the try zone, contacts the ball with his hands and ball goes touch-in-goal. White originally put the ball into the try zone and...

    Referees and the Freemasons?

    Thread Starter: Robert Burns

    I had an email from a referee today who said he would tell me a good way of getting up the refereeing ladder. He told me that he joined the Freemasons and was promoted quicker than others who he had started with. I must admit this concerned me slightly but I thought I would conduct a straw...
