    I'm not too proud to admit that if this happened in one of my games I would almost certainly miss the offside and award the try.

    You'd have to be a very fine referee to pick up and process this incident correctly live.

    I don't hear the TMO sounding confused at all, not sure where you are getting that from. He clearly outlines what has happened, he is asked for a ruling and then reiterates what he has seen, leaving it to the referee to make the decision. Ref thinks it over for a second and then makes the decision, which the TMO agrees with. Sounds like good communication to me with them both getting to the same decision. If you accept (as they did) that the player didn't intentionally play the ball, then it is also the correct decision.

    We miss the Ref and AR talking early on because of the commentators.

    Unknown (Ref?): It was a ruck wasn't it?
    Unknown (AR?): Yes

    TMO: The ball has come backwards from a Lions players head, he hasn't intentionally played at the ball, it's been collected by a Highlanders player who is in front of the Half Back. The grounding is good.

    Ref: OK so what's your ruling then mate, is he offside?

    TMO: I don't believe he's intentionally played the ball Gus.

    Ref: OK so...he's therefore....if he hasn't intentionally played the ball. then the Highlander player is in front of the player, his own player, who last played the ball?

    TMO: Yes he is.

    Ref: OK so it'd be a no try then and we'de be going back for the err, for the side entry penalty advantage I had?

    TMO: Yes you were playing advantage.

    Ref: ok allright.

    Really??? I was going for sarcasm! I must have missed the mark. Apologies.
