    Shell shock. They looked like a flock of sheep in desperate need of a Border Collie.

    Thanx, Taff.

    Watched two Pro14 matches yesterday. As often as not the thrower set up directly in line with his side and the ball went straight down hie LO players. No call. I'm scratching my head. AR needs his flag to be a cattle prod and move the thrower back to the LoT.

    Just watched the Aviva Premiership highlights. There were lots of throw-ins that did not meet my standard for being straight. A few with the hooker off-centre, but most just thrown squint over their own team.

    Premiership linouts are heading the way of scrum put ins........which are still not straight even though the SH is now standing his side of the middle.

    It's tragic.

    Why are the opposition complaining?

    That's all they have to do is stick a player up in the air (any attempt will do - even a half-hearted one) et voiloa .... the squint throw automatically becomes material and the LO / Scrum option is theirs.
