    Default Exeter v Wasps .. penalty

    Well, if that was a PK why not a PT

    not sure if you're having a laugh but the pulling down penalty with 4 mins to go was in Black's own half so how could it be PT?

    Incidentally, I thought it wasn't a good call. 2 Yellow players fell off the side of the maul and it trundled on. Hardly collapsing.

    And surely the last play of the game was a collapsed maul and not a tackle???

    just rewound. You're referring to the collapse with 6 mins to go. Yes, I agree. PT. Throughout the last 10 mins Black seemed to get the rub of the green. I thought the ref didn't look comfortable at this level.

    It looked like Exeter had stopped the mail and then it went sideways, parallel to goal line, before the collapse.

    The one 2mins later to Exeter was odd, as you ^ say

    I gave up watching midway through the 2nd half as I thought the ref was going to predetermine the outcome

    I have never understood why teams risk a line out by kicking for touch when awarded a penalty just a few metres out.
    I know these guys are professional and work on this stuff day in day out but a throw to the back of the line is always risky at any level especially in bad weather and Wasps blew the chance to win the game by this terrible call.

    yeah, just take a tap and set up your rolling maul from there. Simples
