    Apart from being on the wrong side viewing a red card tackle and being confident there was no foul play!

    He was good.

    I thought Lawes should have gone for 10 minutes for his challenge. I also thought that NO let the Argies be offside for most of the second half.

    Very disappointing from the Argies. They have regressed badly in the last couple of years.

    It's always possible to miss something, though. Probably took eye off it. That's what TMO are for

    This times as many as you like. We all know it is impossible to see everything in the game, either he was looking elsewhere, of from his angle in real time it looked OK. As crossref points out this is exactly what a team of 4, and in this case specifically the TMO is for.

    I didn't see the second half but I was very impressed with his first half performance, good decisions, clear communication with players, excellent game control.
