    Not sure if this link will work but did anyone see the physio get hit in the Northhampton v Gloucester game.
    How/why the ref ignored it was beyond me.

    Very poor though, ignoring the Ar’s and TMO On comes, he has line of sight tracking the all carrier directly towards them, doesn’t seem overly concerned about what they allowed to happen either - maybe different standards and expectations at that level

    I've blown up for this several times recently. No complaints from either team, even when one team had numbers and looked certain to score.

    Once I see a physio on the pitch I try and be very aware, both of where play is in relation to them (anywhere play is heading) but also for any need to stop the game even if away from the physio. This is rare but I'm looking for the physio flagging. I don't like to criticise other referees as walk a mile in another mans shoes and you get sore feet, but this is pretty poor.

    Very poor showing by CMK.

    I saw a little of the match on the big screen in the clubhouse after my match and listened to the BBC Northants commentary in the car on the short ride home. The commentary team weren't that complimentary about the match in general - especially the 2nd half - but also with the regard to the missed events by the match officials. Based upon what I have just seen one can only surmise that CMK had a 'bad day at the office'.
