    Yes, I think Owens will get it
    I think he deserves it over JG , on RWC performance.

    RWC 2019 Appointments
    Yeah you’re right. That was a bit short sighted of WR. Surely picking TMO’s only from the 3 Nations most likely to make the final is daft. It was the usual suspects in RWC 2015. Cannot find the 2011 appointments.

    Savvy teams will also have done their homework on the TMO (television match official), an acronym the tournament will have introduced to many sports fans. First used in the World Cup in 2011, the TMO is a shadowy figure, often sitting in a mobile video suite in the car park of the playing venue. He is rarely seen, but heard by the millions of viewers to provide ultimate judgement on the key decisions.


    In fact Graham Hughes was originally appointed for the 2011 Six Nations, along with
    2011 Six Nations appointments of Television match officials:
    Jim Yuille (Scotland)
    Geoff Warren (England)
    Giulio De Santis (Italy)
    Tony Redmond (Ireland)
    Graham Hughes (England)
    Iain Ramage (Scotland)
    Hugh Watkins (Wales)

    Jaco P is an AR for the bronze final, showing he has been forgiven for elbowgate

    He doesn't even rate in the top five referees in my book.

    I would have given it to NO , based on RWC form.

    So proof that form is not the key factor for refs during a World Cup tournament?

    Am I right in thinking that JG hasn't reffed a RWC final?
    NO has one already and the other two in the frame (WB, JP) are from the nations playing.
    In any case I like him and can't help feeling that he fully deserves it.
