    [INTERNATIONAL] Re: Sonny Bill Williams/Sinny Bin Williams

    PT was the correct call by the laws of the game. As others have mentioned, its basically the 'beam me up, Scotty" approach that detirmines whether or not its a PT. SBW got caught out with an...

    [TRC] Re: Folau knock on 4 vs 1 overlap, no card or PT

    I thought a scrum was the right call. I didnt see it as a deliberate knock down at all. In saying that it was one of those that could have gone either way, there is always a level of interpretation...

    Thats why I say its an unconcious bias,I am sure if asked he would not be aware of it.

    Re: Rwc nz v aus

    I think the 'unconcious bias" is real, as I say even the Kiwis talk about it. He has a sort of reverence for the AB's that translates into one sided decision making.

    Nonu is one big difference. He wasnt there in the one we won and was back for the Eden Park flogging. Pocock started off the bench from memory in the 2nd one too.

    I think the Wallabies are a real chance, but it still comes down to the little thigs on the day. Its certainly the 2 best sides in the final. NZ have looked oddly flat this RWC, maybe its the lack of...

    I think the problem was people saw him with blood all over his face shortly afterwards and mistakingly thought it was as a result of this incident, and then the real time replay did look poor. In...

    Not quite sure of your point there, are you suggesting the ref should refer every single decision to the TMO? Surely he should only refer ones where he is not confident of his view of the incident. ...

    Re: RWC Aus vs Sco

    Why? He propels the ball downwards with an open, flat hand. Most refs will call that as deliberate knock down and its then a YC - with consideration for a penalty try. As CJ explained, he believed...

    I dont think they were "repeatedly collapsing the scrum", it certainly didnt go as well as it has in other games and so they didnt have the dominance.

    The late tackle could have been picked up but...

    Absolutely correct, I also thinks its a silly suggestion to say that it was unfair that CJ didnt go the TMO, where do you draw the line with that? Go to him for every single decision? If CJ was...

    No way! You guys are still favourites, there is no other team that could hold out a tier 1 team for nearly 10 minutes, 2 men down. The difference is, I suspect you guys could do it to us!

    Ok, my copy says 4 weeks for LE, thats consistent with what the ruling said, mid range, 8 weeks, reduced to 5 weeks.

    True enough, but there does appear to be a siginificant lack of consistency and once again it clearly favours the host nation. Not a great look.
