    Oh, I watched that whole debacle live, and Ian's right. Australia were so bad the local U12 blind school could have beaten them. NZ actually improved the points difference when down to 14.

    The sad truth is that Dave Rennie is good coach, but you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.

    I look forward to players arguing that raising a knee into a tacklers head isn't reckless if they are unbalanced at the time.

    I find it strange that people defend Barrett by saying that he was in the air and unbalanced etc, but IMO he placed himself in that position in order to gain an advantage over the opposition. He lifted his leading leg and went studs first towards the Wallaby's line and chasers. If the shoe was on the other foot and Koroibete had slipped over at the last minute, the Barrett's boot missed his face and he took Barrett out in the air would the same people say no red card as the Gold player was unbalanced? I doubt it - they would point out that the actions of the gold player put him in a position for the dangerous or reckless contact to occur and therefore its his fault.

    Interesting that "intent" is now back in the equation.

    Second time recently RC rescinded for lack of intent, isn't it?

    Intent rather than outcome is a big change

    I know some coaches actually coach leading with the knees when catching the high ball to protect yourself and give balance. Now we have ‘lead with your feet’ to achieve the same thing being given the green light.
    It would have perhaps have helped if WR would say that the lack of obvious intent was at least worth a YC. At the moment without such a statement such reckless/careless play, it appears, shouldn’t be penalised at all.

    They are going to open a can of worms with intent, how the heck will a ref define that in the heat of a game. Sorry sir I didn’t intend to stand on that players head/ face in the ruck I lost my balance and as I’m 150kg bag of muscle of course there’s blood all over the place but it wasn’t intentional. Case dismissed ��
