    Well, maybe Munster's penalties were immaterial.

    Do you really thing there would not be a single offence that was material or from which no advantage was gained? I can only conclude that ti was an incredible display of discipline or the ref missed a lot. I wonder which it was?

    Where did you get the stats from?
    They could just be wrong.

    Or did you watch the game?

    ESPN's stats. Not always perfect. No personal viewing. Just seems very odd.

    It wouldn't surprise me if the Munster PK stats just hadn't pulled through from Opta.
    We occasionally have problems at work with Opta stats not displaying correctly.

    I can't find PK stats but did see SK had three yellow cards, so they were clearly on the edge. None of the match reports say anything unusual about the officiating or the penalties.

    The last bit, SK being under the cosh (not a shock, they are terrible) would suggest that advantage and material effect did not play a big part. Clearly they would need the relief of PK.

    I'll try to find the game on catch up. Was hoping some one had seen it.

    There were no penalties against Munster. Some of the clips I've seen were... interesting. (E.g. https://i.imgur.com/ciegOmG.gif )

    I believe it was the ref's first top tier game and he was very much of the "let it flow" persuasion. It's still a remarkable statistic.

    In fairness I thought the ref had a reasonably good game. I «*watched*» the game on my radio as usual. 5 players had been released back from Ireland camp for the Friday night lights add that to a fair number of caps already in the Munster squad and I think you will find Munster were incredibly disciplined. Yes, they get away will far too much handling of the ball off their feet, but discipline these days is sadly more about playing the whistle rather than respecting the LoTG. The South Africans were very ill-disciplined and unlike the team that beat Edinburgh the previous weekend. Stats, are only as useful as your interpretation of them. The referee can only whistle what’s in front of him; if one team insist on not listening to the man and the other team are cute enough not to infringe on things the match ref is hot about, what can you do? Munster are not the saints zero penalties would suggest and presumably SK will go home feeling they are better than the 15 penalties they foolishly gave away.

    Match Officials
    Referee: Andrea Piardi (FIR, competition debut)
    Assistant Referees: Sean Gallagher (IRFU) & Matteo Liperini (FIR)
    TMO: Alan Falzone (FIR)

    And if that is the case fine.
