    Interesting to see Devon Toner stay on his feet for a change, he must be the largest ruck flopper ever.

    [6N] Kyle Sinkler - Sinner or Sinned

    Rewatching yesterday's game and from the outset, about 2:43 game clock, Alun-Wynn Jones jumps over Sinkler's back in a lame attempt to charge the ball down. This niggle continues throughout the...

    1. Was he robbed of saving a try?
    2. Was he robbed of scoring a try?
