    Re: Wal v Aus: Coach Verbally Attacks Officials

    well I imagine in this game there was a loud shout of backwards, play on?

    It's basic reffing to shout when we make a close call, so everyone knows.

    [Law] Re: Incorrectly taken free kick

    Great story.
    I feel sad because all the refs before that who had let it go, or let him take it again, basically failed him, as they set him up for that mistake in a game that really mattered

    Re: Wal v Aus: Coach Verbally Attacks Officials

    Yes, but we also don't want the ref to be the talking point, and the centre of the game , we would rather be invisible

    Knock on would have helped with that. It's the expected decision

    I am not so sure. I think it's one of those situations where the best decision is the one that all thirty players are expecting.

    It was a bit of a gotcha
