    I would have pinged all those tacklers for not rolling away.

    Well, I watched the whole thing and the main thing that jumped out was that the ref never took control of the game and seemed quite happy to let the players sort out problems before he did. Although Phil jokes about not pinging the players for rolling away he should have clamped down on that earlier to stop the niggles at the tackle, there were numerous cheap shots that went in when players were getting up or whilst they were on the deck (both attack and defense).

    I watched the first couple of minutes of this one:

    Mainly because rovers would ensure a better ref and lo and behold, look at the difference. The players know that they're going to get away with very little and there's very little niggle (doesn't harm that they know that they'd probably get their clock cleaned if they tried any physical stuff!).
