  1. [Law] Re: Reviewing the Video with the TMO and other officials.

    I think he painted himself in the corner and then paniced and just blustered on.

    One thing is for sure once he awarded it whatever he did afterwards one side was going to be enraged.

    Re: 5 worst ref decision

    We do have them. ie player pundits.

    it doesn't make their opinions any more worthwhile.

  8. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    Aye. When the discussion is fully public and the ref comes to a conclusion and says "Do we all agree" it leaves 2 x ARs and a TMO in a difficult position if they do disagree.

    [Ruck] Re: Wales v England Ladder rucks

    I thought hed lost control of both teams very early on. Wales were far better at reading him of course, but like England they weren't interested in him otherwise.
  13. [Law] Re: Discussion with other sports re officiating/laws

    The obvious question is why did her assessor praise her then tell her to not repeat it? The only reason I can think of is that nobody else did it therefore it was out of sync with expectations?

  15. [Law] Re: Discussion with other sports re officiating/laws

    So if the review takes 3 minutes the game in effect only lasts 87 minutes? That 3 minutes doesnt become time added on once 90 minutes is up?
