    Silly play by gold.

    If he'd not driven the green player back I'd have said no offence - just a collision between a dummy runner and an opponent - but the ball was already past the green player, gold drove him several meters and held him on the ground.

    IMO difficult to justify ignoring that.

    Well said.

    and if the tacked player had had the ball - would the drive be inappropriate?

    And yet the ref and AR looking at it did? No material effect or impact on Ireland playing it as they wished for 5 phases. It didn't raise an eyebrow then so to me looked more like the TMO wanting to inject himself into the game (same as the barely clear knock on to deny Ireland the last try). #sigh#.

    Imo looks like a case of looking for reasons to deny a try.

    Why? Looked to me more like officials trying to get it right. Or are you claiming it wasn't a "real" knock-on (whatever that means)?

    Tomayto- tomarto.

    If the off the ball was so C & O then the "check check" should come in as soon as there was a turnover? I know the protocols are for the ball to be dead....but a TMO interjection will be a PK at minimum so waiting for a turnover and try just to deny the try did NOT shower the To4 in any glory.

    For mine..the supposed knock on from the 10 TV angles was not C and O...how the TMO could claim so seemed far fetched.

    He actually referred to a camera angle that they couldn't show on the big screen -- Very strange wording by the TMO.
