Is it me, or has the number of fairly obvious forward passes going un-noticed increased recently.
There were a couple of massive ones in the England-Samoa game, and tries were scored from them in the Ireland - NZ game.
Why are the referees, and assistants missing them so regularly? Is it the pace of the game that means the referees are further from play? Are the referees to busy looking for other things that they get missed?
Anyone got any other thoughts on why this is something else that is creeping in at the Elite level that doesnt seem to be policed very well, along with feeding at the scrum, and scrummaging in general.
