    Did anyone notice how having a strongly constructed attacking Maul causes the opposition to commit defenders & weaken their open field defence .......... Jackson's Try was the perfect example , my granny could've walked in that one.... Maybe [as I've suggested & been derided by Ian] mauling rather than rucking is the cleverest space creation tactic. Perhaps Schmidt & Lancaster are following my coaching guidance on twitter !

Barnes did not affect the result but he got a lot wrong (towards / against BOTH teams). His secondary signals were poor. He use of "hit" was very poor. He did not control the game allowing far too much chat and his handling of the ruck area was tombola style. Your last sentence speaks volumes!

    OH, just in case you still don't understand: BARNES did not AFFECT the result or its magnitude in any way he was poor for both sides! Several England supporters watching the game with us were highly critical of his display. One was called Morgan!
    That whole post illustrates how little you understand the game at the elite level. It also illustrates <content removed>

    We know the majority of commentators have failed to inform themselves properly and therefore this translates directly to their audience. As refs we can only control our own area of match involvement and communication.
    If you look hard enough, there'll be a penalty in there somewhere.

    The greatest ruck is one that never forms, but sometimes it can't be helped. #Woshkabomy

    Sounds like a quenelle!

    This is uncalled for and out of keeping with this site.

    Would you like to justify your claim?
    The tenet that a referee is the sole arbiter of fact and law, allows me to be wrong, not stupid.

    It was very clear that Ireland had more hunger than Wales. There again the lack of hunger from Roberts in a Cardiff shirt was evident long before his move to France.

    Williams was out of order and should have been dealt with a card probably, a PK at the restart definitely. Another example, for me, of WB's poor management. Wales could have been down two players for at least 10 minutes I'm not sure about a red but a yellow without doubt. ( I'd lean towards yellow but that might be due to my allegiances.
